Very nice Keith. I look forward to your comments on how they sound, in particular how they behave when close to rear walls. I love it when Sony makes a statement piece.

Hamish Hi, not sure re price in the US I believe they are around $20k ,it has been a real struggle to find someone at Sony who knows the person that could be in charge of this particular division, that might be able to arrange a loan pair!

Yes they need to work reasonably close to walls ,that is one of the main reasons for borrowing them, they sounded good in a fairly enormous room in Munich, we havent had much success with rear ported speakers thus far!
