lol! Another victim of the women-&-TV syndrome. Just what is with this tv affliction of the female sex?!! It even cuts across species. I have two dogs. The male one doesn't understand TV images and prefers to chew on his toys. The female one, she does see the images and can sit still watching movies with me.
Your description of the Rega sound chimes with my pre-conception of what it would sound like based on the looks of the drivers. Seems Rega is a bit 1990s Mission-y: taut and pacy, with little overhang. I think it may do jazz ensembles nicely.
^ Neat and tidy looks. It passes the Messenger test and is HFC's 2009 speaker winner. I'd better check this out this year too. It could save me a small wad of cash over a Spendor.
