    .... and after about 7 weeks with the Podium panels, it's back to the MBL omnis. Good speakers.



    The Podiums really like my LA Audio el84 amp, but the MBLs sound better with the Trigon TRE50M solid state monoblocks.

    How do you manage to move the MBL's Jerry?

    If you see the platforms they are on, gloss side down and they just slide along the carpet.
    A lot easier than lifting them at 100lb a piece!

    The Podiums "in storage" until I next fancy some time with them.

    My Leak 3090s have built-in handles to help move them. Helps that the top section is removable.

    The Ocellias aren't 'heavy' as such - but storing the packing boxes sure takes up a lot of space!

    Well they say a change is as good as a rest Jerry, I'm still swapping between the Tannoys & Goldenears at regular intervals.

    By the way cable arrived, thanks, will give it a try over weekend.

    Nice little tank Jerry! I used to have a couple Fighters in a cool little tank that had separators in it. Was fun to watch the twopuff upat each other between the glass. They are beautiful. I could rarely keep the Tetras long in my other tank, guess my water wasn’t good enough for them.

    I keep thinking about starting back up my marine tanks, but I think I have enough going on right now to keep me busy! A fun hobby though. Also, like your MBL’s too!

    We've got 4 tropical fish tanks in all - this is the biggest - 120l.
    5 clown loaches and assorted smaller folks.
