I love hearing stories like this. It's what high end is all about. Rediscovering music and truly discovering music for the first time. I've heard this type of story relating to Maggies quite a bit too. Excellent company.

They offer a $300 pair of speakers online only too. If you ever have that friend who has issues not buying "Bose," or "Infinity," or what not these inexpensive Maggies are a good way to get them bit by the audiophile bug.
