It's here, it's here!!!

The ML Vantage in Dark Cherry has landed and has made a nice little home in my bedroom! I installed my newly acquired XFi soundcard (thanks to my GF over Christmas) and everything is up and running great! I did have a temporary hiccup - the stupid XFi drivers crashed my computer and I had to do a format and a clean install of WinXP. Grrrr..... :mad: .

Now, at 4am, the 'puter is back up and running... the Vantage are playing in the background and everything is A-OK (aside from a few lost files).

I'll post pics and the entire story tomorrow so stay tuned!

:D :D :D

(You can tell I'm ecstatic!!)

Vantage arrival...

Joey,

Wonderful news Joey... :D I am glad you are enjoying you new Vantage speakers. What music did you listen to first (Artist and song)? How did it sound?

Cheers

-Robin

I'll bet they didn't sound quite right at first. Mine sounded somewhat congested and the bass wasn't as tight as I thought it should have been. But then, that's how it sound brand new out of the box. They've improved a lot since then but I don't think I have them completely broken in yet.

In fact when I first got them setup my wife and son took over the stereo and took turns playing there favorite tunes. I took a back seat and let them enjoy it and help break them in. I was just glad they were happy with the new addition.

Be patient, experiment with different locations and bass settings but most importantly, stay up late and listen to a lot of different music.

Good luck with your purchase! But be forewarned: you've been bitten. Next step - possibly a tubed preamp. Then a tubed poweramp. Then a turntable. It never ends. Trust me. I know. Been there, done that.
