    Garth,

    Been collecting, buying and selling them for a long time now, like JBL speakers a lot. The high end community here missed out on a few generations of fantastic JBLs and efficient horn speakers altogether. The M9500 is a very special speaker, its efficient enough and an easy load for lower powered SETs yet it still sounds wonderful with ss electronics. In my experience for the most part horns sound like crap with solid state amps.

    A larger room is definitely preferable but the room is what it is. You have a very strict set of rules when setting up large speakers in a small room for near field listening. You must be very precise with the placement of everything and even the type of chair you use makes a difference but it can very rewarding when done right. In this case you're exactly 6' away from each speaker.

    David,

    great pictures, awesome collection of gear. I remember the Horns from CES back in 2003.

    southern Utah has a new cultural center.
