Dan,

Congrats... You are the perfect owner of these fine speakers.

Now... I need to decide if I can live with Graphite SF's... sure wish that they were Maple.

Then a tube amp to drive them...

As for the SF Cremona Auditors, they will go up for sale once the GM's arrive. They are very sweet speakers in their own right, and will make someone very happy.

Stephen.......Thank you. I don't see how anyone could not appreciate the Guarneri Memento's. It has been well received by all users and reviewers. I have even read a couple reviews on the GM where the reviewer purchased that review pair. That about says it all.

I appreciate the effort you provided that helped me make the decision to go forward with this purchase. Thank you.
You bet Dan.

Nice choice Dan.

While you are waiting you can watch the Samuel L Jackson movie The Red Violin. It will take your mind off the wait and it is very good.

Dan,

Have you ever seen or heard a pair of Strads. in person ? The strads. are the best speakers I have ever heard and the best looking. If you are impressed with the auditors your jaw will hang open with the strads.
