    Looking great Steve, and I bet sounding great too.

    Only 3 sets of speakers. Disappointing. I remember you in the good old days.

    3 sets of speakers would have been in the system before lunch, and possibly a few more in the afternoon.

    We all get older, and wiser.

    Steve, nice speakers there in the WLM Diva's! I think the WLM line is one that is seriously good, from the La Scala on up. Well done, and the veneering looks great on them too! Enjoy!

    Looking at how well finished the ebay ones are and considering how they sound, I doubt you could find a commercial pair of speakers new that would come close to them.

    I'm thinking of buying them and so am very interested in your thoughts regarding them compared to the ANe - which are my main speakers.
