not a classic monitor, but

Due to one of life's surprises, the layout of my room changed in such a way that I figured the 3.7s would have to go, so I bought a pair of Definitive's ST-L speakers to replace them.

I'm quite pleased with them, but I still couldn't bring myself to part with the 3.7s, which languished in their box for a few years. Eventually, I decided to sell the 3.7s and removed them to reverse some modifications, but couldn't resist putting them in my system first. That changed my mind - just can't part with them. So, I've been swapping back and forth every few months and it's like having a brand new system every time I make the change (part of the Mye stand is visible to the left of the speaker in the photo above). The weird thing is that each time I swap speakers, I am reminded how awesome whichever one I just put back in service sounds. In certain ways, each has a slight advantage over the other.

I just tore it all down (time for the annual deep cleaning) and installed a simplified 2-channel system, built around my old Marantz PM-11S1. Curiosity forced me to swap the 3.7s back into the system the next day. That 100wpc (200 into 4 ohms) drove them splendidly in a bedroom (best bass I ever heard out of a pair of Maggies) and it's up to the task in my 600sq' room, as well.
