Just bought a (used) pair of Tune Audio Marvel speakers for my office system. Got them for <1/3 of their retail price, which is just ridiculous! I've had loads of speakers in this system, and irrespective of the speakers, the SQ has never gotten anywhere near that of my main system. But with these Marvels, my office system is now knocking on the door.

Of course, having a NOS1 and BD mono amps in my office helps!

(Forgive me if the tone of this post comes across as a bit self-congratulatory... but I just had to share my joy.)

I saw a pair, when I went to pick up the Orello's. I was wondering if they were the same ones ?

I have to say they look very nice  Happy

They may well be - they were Jack's demo pair. The guy I bought them off bought them about a year ago.

I'm totally bowled over by the sound I'm getting, for the money I paid.

Finally my poor 'white sheep' (the name Peter and I gave to my NOS1) has a couple of friends - two white horns... which I guess makes them rams Happy.
