...I was looking for new speakers and had probably heard a half dozen that didn't do anything for me - then I heard the DQ-10s and I had to have them.

Looking for the electronic crossover, I ventured into to a high end shop in Huntington Beach called Haven and Hardesty.

Dick Hardesty, who later became the Audio Perfectionist and wrote an ezine, showed me an issue of TAS and introduced me to the underground audio publications. I was hooked, kool-aid and all.

I kept the speakers for about 5 year but I highly modified the them subbing a KEF T-27 for the two tweeters among other things.

After about 3 years I bought a pair of real subwoofers and traded the Quatre amps for a Threshold 400A on top and a Bryston 4B on the subs. The Rappaport went for a Threshold NS-10 (not one of Nelson's finest) and later and ARC SP-6B.

Ahh, the good old days.
