Hey all I'm new to ML Spires but not new to Electrostats have owned and still own many Quad ESL-63's and others such as XStatic EC-3's designed and built by my buddy in Oakland California. Anyway back to ML Spires, I have aquired a pair of Spires in a trade and the frames are chrome, I have looked online for other Chrome framed pairs and can't find any, does anyone else own chrome Spire frames or even other models with Chrome frames from the factory or are mine unicorns ? Anyway I'm happy with my trade for them, I traded a pair of Acoustic Energy AE2's bookshelves for them. I love the chrome look and so does the wife. They are cool looking. I am a collector of all kinds of cool vintage and not so vintage audio. A photo included of my buddies XStatic EC-3's included also

My system is always changing as I buy, sell, trade mostly vintage audio, so I always have stuff to swap into and out of. You can see by these two photos that the system is always changing.

Oh, I see. What's your favorite ML or combination so far?

I just picked up the Spires and have only tried them with my SS McIntosh MHT200 Receiver so far, but I also have a Mcintosh C-22 and McIntosh MC-60 combo that I'm sure will sound glorious after summer. And a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks. That must have been great being able to try a lot of audio stuff, especially with MLs.
