Wilson Alexandria V2
I've listened to the Wilson Alexandria V2's and the Sigfried's. I think they are a match made in heaven! Also had Thor's hammer. Which I would also recommend. 
You know you're an audiophile if--
Even though you need to get your roof repaired you spend the money on new speakers because you got a deal you can't say no to. 
Break In Your Speakers...... What CD and how long?
I'm a firm believer that after a 100 hours or so you really need to crank them up for a few hours.I had a WP8's for over a year then I had a party. I had the volume cranked to hearing damaging levels. (the party was out side and I left the back sc... 
Did I damage my speakers?
For some more reassurance I think you did no harm. The surround on the cone and the cone its self are on the thin side and will change temperature quickly. After 15 minutes I think they would be at room temperature. The MDF and or other materials ...

Audio Research Ref3 vs VTL 6.5 or 7.5II
Three years ago when I decided I wanted change my system to a tube system (from rowland) I narrowed it down to VTL and Audio Research. I started to lean towards VTL then two years ago I was at CES and had a demo between the 6.5 and Ref3. It was so... 
Speakers that reveal bad recordings? Not for me.
I've found as my systems resolution has gotten higher sub-par recording do sound better and exceptional recordings sound even better. So if you have recording "A" which would rate as a 3 in quality of recording. and recording "B" which would rate ... 
My experience with wilson speakers is you need some power behind them. WP7's can play very low and need the power to control the puppies. I have WP8's and the VTL 450's and I think they are a match made in heaven. low listening levels they are ver...
