Default 804D3's in the house!!

I've only been able to spend a few hours with them, but I really like what I'm hearing. As much as I liked my entry level Sonus Faber Veneres, I felt they were the weakest part of my system so I knew they weren't my forever loudspeakers. Ever since I heard the synergy that my cousin had with his Mac/B&W system I've wanted to put a pair in my rig. Once I spend more time with them I'll try to post my impressions, but at the moment I’m just enjoying my new toys.
