As promised: PIONEER HPM-100s!
I just lugged them up the stairs. They weigh 58 pounds each! They're connected to the Marantz 1070 right now, and my initial impression is very good. They're clearly related to the HPM-60s that I have and love, with tighter, much deeper bass (I'm listening to reggae) and a bigger, more immersive soundfield. This pair needs some love. I will refinish the very stained and worn real wood cabinets, and replace the cat scratch posts that used to be speaker grills. I will have pictures for you by Saturday, but these make me want to take the day off and crank the tunes!
