    First Impressions

    To be honest, underwelming. It took a friend and me until late Friday evening to finish the unboxing. He left before I could get the system hooked up, debugged and running which went into early...

    The Unboxing

    The unopened boxes. As can be seen, the Altec Model 19's did not leave as planned so they got to meet their replacements. They'll be hanging around for another week or so.

    I actually have two cats - one for each speaker. I'm a big stickler on symmetry.

    Seriously, the absorber panels behind the speakers could be doable. I just need to determine how big an issue it is.
