Just got in a pair of these in black and wondering if anyone has heard them and would maybe share your thoughts. I won't be able to hook them up to the main system until next week. They are in fantastic condition.

Congrats. I can't help you with that model, but I heard the Pulsar R21 recently at my local dealer (they're in love with T+A and are the largest dealer in the U.S.). I thought the Pulsars were pretty amazing. It's a shame T+A stuff hasn't yet caught the attention of major reviewers and other audiophiles. The company makes virtually EVERYthing involved with high-end audio, and while quite pricy, they do it well.

Is that shooting fish in a barrel? Picking the low hanging fruit? Dive bombing the lower emotions? Why yes, it is. Enjoy your new speakers, I am sure that they are fantastic.

Depends on the owners age.

I have a sneaking feeling you're the one who snagged those mere minutes before I saw them.

Can't wait to hear you're impressions. As soon as I realized they are a T-line I became very intrigued.

Ok, update on the speakers. Got them upstairs and all hooked up. The binding posts are angled on the bottom and was a bit of a pain to hook up & tighten. 6 ft. apart and I sit about 5 1/2 - 6ft. away, small room. I was concerned the the bass would overload the room, however that only started to happen when I really pushed them louder then I would ever listen.

In a nutshell, they sound great! Very revealing, nice wide soundstage (very surprising), generous bass and even some decent depth. Tone seemed right on and excellent performance at low volume. These are keeper, at least for now ... ;-)
