Would the Arcaydis AK3 speakers be a good match for the Cyrus 8vs2 amp and CD8x player?  Are the AK3's fairly easy to drive? Hopefully they (AK3's) are not overly bright?  THX!   Tallman

Thanks for the advice Chris! I did own a pair of Dynaudio 52 SE's. They were good speakers, but when you turned up the volume the woofer would bottom out and you would get a popping noise. Have you ever had this problem with the Focus 110's?   Thanx, Tallman

Best advice is to loan a pair for a while. I've had no problems with mine bottoming out.

Hey Chris.

I went ahead and bought some 110's and the intial reports are great! They seem to be a very good match with the Cyrus gear. Nice bass from such a small speaker, quality and quanity! They seem fairly open sounding but I am sure they will open up more once I break them in.

THX for the advice!
