Vandersteen 7s
The review was very positive but why didn't he compare them to his Wilson's even though they cost more. I thought that was strange. Always helpful when a reviewer compares the subject to something else. 
Recommend speakers for a restaurant sound system
speakers are not nearly as important as the amp. Speakers need to be evenly spaced throughout. You need something like a Sonance 12 channel amp so there is a separate amp for each pair of speakers...this makes a huge difference! I've done several ... 
How is it ? that a tuner smokes the table ???
96.3, 90.7, 93.9 and 88.3 all are pretty good sound and the different shows really teach you about new music. One of my favorites is the Moonshine show on Sunday...not sure which station though. They played from Ramblin' Boy by Charlie Haden with ...

I think the III was sealed while the II was ported. I have read about many people preferring the Strata III to the more expensive REL's. has reviews of both and liked the cheaper Strata. 
300b vs. NOS mullard el34- both amps in push pull
Get some of the new KT77's. They are as good as the old Mullards if not better. I thought they were in my Eastern Electric M520...better than XF1 with the big base.

Micropure Kotaro
