Congrats and welcome to the club! They are, indeed, awesome...

Advise? - They like heavy stands.

Warning? - They are super transparent, if something sounds wrong check upstream gears.
- Be careful with your wallet, they love killer amps and sources.

Advice - use them as surrounds and get the 40s.

Excellent speaker/monitors. Just wish they were a little more aesthetically pleasing, though.
