Thanks Hans, the waiting was tough but my remaining four 1723 Bookshelf S THX speakers finally made it yesterday afternoon. The delivery was supposed to be this coming Monday, but FedEx was able to move my remaining speakers through their system a business day early. I’m grateful to FedEx because I will be out of town on a business trip next week and would not have been home on Monday. I have already unboxed the 1723 Bookshelf THX speakers and hooked them up, they sound superb as back/side surround channels and complete the seemless voicing around me for movies. Hopefully your wait is not much longer!
