    How are you finding the Omars, Dan? I bought an absolutely immaculate pair a few months back but haven't got round to re-foaming them yet.

    Ah no worries! Were they the black ones that went on eBay recently?

    4 sets of speakers, eh? I envy you - I'm currently "down to" 25 pairs...

    Where do you keep them all? I have 8 sets and really can't buy any more (even though I'd like to) as there's just no more storage space.

    - 2 pairs in use in the lounge (surround sound)
    - 1 pair in use in the dining room
    - 1 pair in use in the listening room
    - 5 pairs on standby in the listening room (all are small standmounters so tuck away nicely)
    - 3 pairs boxed in the loft

    The rest in my garage workshop in various states of disrepair!
