In your review on stereophile, you mentioned that at times you could not pick the difference between the Blade's and the Studio2's.
Primarily, that was only when listened to them at close distance, not at the normal listening position. Also, I could not initially detect which was playing when turning on the system from cold but, after a several minutes of listening, I was easily able to determine which was playing.

I think people make too many unwarranted and exaggerated statements about differences among similarly high quality devices. They are both excellent speakers.

Here’s something I found on Atlantis Sound. They were pretty big. I only remember the two New York stores: 3rd between 79 & 80, and 45th street (near 7th?). I worked a bit at both.

I was told by former colleagues that my manager, a fellow named Joey (I’ll leave his last name out because of what comes next) backed a truck up to the place and took everything. Joey casually took stuff off the shelves all the time and had a ridiculous temper, so I believed it.

Brands I remember: Phillips, Ultralinear, Sherwood, Onkyo, Dual, BIC, Acoustic Research, Phase Linear.

Interesting. Still feel strange that I cannot recall them.

Happy to say they are finally gone to a new home!
Congrats!
Should you put 'SOLD' in the title of the post?
I don't even know how (title revision may not be encouraged at ASR) but others have added that word after sale.
It did become an interesting dialogue! imo;)

It is not apparent to me how one does that even though it seems that I have done it in the past.

On the top right of your 1st post the poster should see a button with three dots. It hides the edit thread option, which changes the thread name, which is the 1st post title.
