Nice one Frank. A friend is using Lucents and the reports about them are pretty good.

Are the Tweets and Crossover gonna be of Lucents or going in for custom ones

yea, ive heard a lot about them too. hehe. the tweets and crossovers will be luccent too. i think the tweeter in the IM-6 is one of the best in that budget, so not chopping and changing too much.

i agree cheers:. but im sure, there must be an explanation. methinks the Luccent series is no longer produced, the world over.

Congrats, Frank! So the cat is now out of the bag, eh? You need to take something for chronic upgraditis before it gets out of control

This time there's going to be prodigious amount of damping in the front doors too.
Chronic upgraditis is a pain, really! makes me do stuff! bought the luccents while i was sleepwalking. oh, and the medications are soooo strong, i hope i dont go out and buy a Tru technology/Genesis amp under the 'effect' someday (thats a long time away, though. but possible. waiting to earn my own money and get one of those)

Buddy, remember what I told you when we were chatting a few days back. You are one hell of a mad dentist.
Howver, kudos on getting the Lucents. I sicerely think you are going to blow your esteem to smithreens, one of these days.

So, what's the next upgrade in pipeline? A STEG may be?
