Ahh...nice! I've heard the Electra series (I think using the same tweeter from the Utopia)...pretty good. But they did not sound very refine driven by Aragon monoblocks...

Yah...but they custom fit the micro utopia into the CDs cabinet...no room for the utopia to breath at all.

What a waste.

I heard the system early on when their cello broke down.  It was powered by a electrocompaniet AW60 instead... FANTASTIC!

The most memorable moment was when they played Lady Marmalade OST... never knew pop could sound so good.

Later on the CELLO came back and everything was much less musical and too clinical... of course this is coming from me who heard them days in between playing different music but im adamant the electro was a better match.

From my point of view, i find the music warehse marantz setup lack of "live" feeling. Too electronic type of sounding, maybe i listen too much tube oredi. No hard feelings! ;)
