 Steal, beg or borrow. At those prices IMO you will NEVER equal the performance of those Pipes. Your speaker quest will be done done done.

  Barry have you ever spoken to Ron Bauman of Mapleshade about your Gallos ? They do some fine mods to the Gallos. Their favorite speaker. Our club member Sidney G. is a rep and owns the modded Nucleaus. just mind boggling as to what they do not do. What they do do is convey the most natural sound from a Gallo we have ever experienced. A treat indeed. Well worth the phone call.
  Maybe I could get you over there one day if you like. He owns a complete Mapleshade system, oh my.

I've heard some Mapleshade modded Strada at Anthony's they were indeed nice! It's just out of my budget range.

Oh, come on Barry, you know that if any of us had $8500 it wouldn't be laying around, it would be flying out the door to pay for some new toys.  :rofl:
