          MG-2B, driven by a Sumo Half-Power (around late '81 early '82). I only kept them for about a month and traded them back to the dealer for the Acoustat Monitors.

                        Ha! You cheat! ARC and Maggie always were neighbors. Not to mention didn't ARC introduce the T1(U) to the world?
