As some of you saw JimJ made me buy these really big speakers and I had to do a lot of re-arranging to get them to fit in my "listening" space.

Here is the current placement/setup.

....And here is the gear on it's flimsy shelving unit..... I plan to make my own that will be prettier and more robust.

http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-11/1111760/htrack.jpg

Equipment from top to bottom:

1) Marantz TT4000 that I stole from my dad, I'd get my own but I'd have to spend a bit to get better performance.

2) Arcam Alpha 8 CD player... it's acting as a transport right now.

3) Forte F-50 D/A converter, it actually sounds different than the Arcam :eek:

4) Parasound Halo P3 pre-amp. I might use it to control a bi-amp setup.

5) SimAudio Moon i5080 integrated amplifier. Puts out 80w x 2. Haven't used it much yet so I can't tell you much about how it compares as an amp or a preamp.

6) Forte Model 6A amplifier. 200w x 2 , about the first 40-55w are class A which is pretty high for an A/B design. It is also a no-feedback design.

7) Martin Logan Sequel II speakers. JimJ's fault :eyebrow:

It sounds pretty **** good to my ears. A stark contras to the car where I live and die by EQ. My next project will be to take the speakers apart and see if any capacitors need replacing etc.... I also like to clean out the guts on these things to get them as close to "new" as I can :)

Your T.V is far to low for proper viewing. Id get a larger stand and raise it up.
Unless you sit in a hole in the floor....

Kind of :) It's a water color titled "New to the Chase" by Michale Irvine. It's the '01 Bullitt joining in on the car chase from the movie Bullitt.

I DO sit in a hole in the floor.... :eyebrow:

Yes you do, and I'm still playing my World Series 2k2 season on it ;)

I've seen that before. He has posted in the ML forums :)

Some of those people have crazy 5.1 systems.

If it was me, and I owned ML's, I'd do the midbass array for left and right plus center. :)

Eh, maybe. The 10" driver in mine acctually do a pretty good job of that range, unfortunately they do not go all that low :(
