Thanks Nick! You guys have me chuckling about the size of these speakers. I still have my big old six-stacked-cabinet speakers in our listening room, because we don't have any place else to put them (anyone want to buy them?). The Jägers seem almost lost in that room by comparison. We also have Jägers in our 10 x 14 home theater and they are working really well.

Using two Kaijus works really well, more of a good thing. But I don't imagine you need them in your room. Right now in our fairly big, well treated room I am biamping, using monoblock Kaijus on the tweeters and our prototype Big Betty 50W parallel SE 6550 amps on the woofers. And a Neothoriator as preamp. Aaron Johnson is one of my sets of critical ears, and he seems to approve of the current setup. It can get really loud.

Does this kit paired with the Kaiju take speaker cables terminated in banana plugs or spades?  Or will it take either?

I can find a picture of the Kaiju and it looks like it will take either.  I havent really seen a close up of the Jäger that shows that it can take either.

Yes, both spades and banana plugs can be used.

The preamp on sitting on the CD player is a Reduction.

The fullness of the Red>Smash>SMR I>Jäger actually goes a step further than most would realize. The CD player appears to be the same model as the one in the packing room at BHHQ...

Cross posting because I am so happy.  I finished my build (almost) and the speakers are working.

They sound incredible.  I started with some classical (and clearly heard some person coughing rudely during the performance), and then played some metal.  It all sounds so good.

The Kaiju and BeePre are inside of the credenza because I have cats.
