I became enamored with Meadowlark speakers when I went to check out a CL ad for a pair of B&W 800s, I just wanted to see and hear them. The seller (John who later became a good friend) also had a pair of Ospreys. I was much more impressed with them than the B&Ws. Since then I've bought every pair I could get my hands on. So far I have (in order of acquisition): Swifts Kestral HRs Ospreys Swallows Kestral lls I also have a swan center channel. They all sound great!
