    Yamaha NS-5000

    gvl, I'm in the SoCal region. I have a pair of the NS-1000 (ebony wood) that I upgraded the crossover (using stock capacitor values) and replaced the binding posts, and installed them on top of 1" steel sand filled stands. Killer speakers. Staying in the same theme, I now have a new pair of...
