No it isn't. Let me know what you think after you put on some good stuff like we talked about on PM a bit ago. If you like classical, try some of that as well to blow your mind.

I will. Not a big classical fan, but I do also like jazz which can sound quite nice on a kick ass system.

I have been researching the 606 and see where a few people are complaining about the unit over-heating and buzzing... It's not the majority of reveiewers but enough to raise some concern. I am planning on getting this speaker system. I like the way my old Polk speakers sounded with my old Onkyo.

I saw some of those too. It seems one guy was complaining about heat and a buzzing when his PS3 was on. I was also looking at the same speakers.

Very nice! I have that old Scorps LP and CD (Lonesome Crow). I am enjoying the other Scorps vids that go along with the one you posted. I was a big fan of early Scorps, before they were mainstream.

No doubt - they used to totally rock in the old days. I mean Blackout jams - but had a newer sound. I like all that pre Blackout stuff. I have those older LP's too. Lonesome Crow is so cool.

Indeed! Lonesome Crow, Virgin Killers, Taken By Force, Lovedrive, Animal Magnetism, Fly to the Rainbow... Pre- Blackout/ Rock You Like A Hurricane.. was their best when they had Uli Roth as their lead but I still liked the Schenker brothers
