    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.

    Hi Greg

    I really appreciate your input. Given your comments on the non linearity of PC's, the Scarlette 2i2 looks very attractive with its low cost (~$160 on Amazon). The mic remains an open...
