I joined PFM 14 months ago because of the M-DAC and I've learnt a great deal since. Thanks to all.
All that lot looks splendid.

Interesting speakers. I'd never seen them before.

MVV I think you need to make your pics publicly viewable. Your link prompted me to login with my Yahoo ac, which I did, but then I only saw my own pics.

Thanks, Arthur.
As for the blinds, they came with the room, which used to be a kid's bedroom, I believe. So I can't answer with certainty your question. However, there is a small sticker on the Velux window-frame to which they are attached that says: www.Velux.com/shop, and thereafter some tiny images of different blinds are shown, which I suppose means Velux themselves will provide you with starry nights.

P.S. am I correct in thinking my set-up is near-field (I sit 7' away from the sub) and the speakers are, I suppose 4' apart? I'm curious because room size is often mentioned as being determinant for choosing the correct speaker size, but surely what counts is how far you sit from the speakers. My study is quite large, as the photo indicates, but I listen to music in a small section of it only. Would I benefit from larger stand-mounts?
Still a noob.

Cheers Arthur. Normally it has kid's debris strewn everywhere. Look closely in the mirror in the pic of the whole kit and you'll see it piled up!

Ta both. Now I know it works I want to post a shot of the Amadeus with custom built table that almost makes it look good. Solid Oak and black slate top the same size as the plinth (250 built)

Cheers, ill look up those blinds in a minute.

For what my opinions worth, if you need to sit that close and have a well integrated sub it seems unlikely that bigger stand mounts would add much except possibly boomy effects into and out of the corner.

It looks like an excellent, well powered and fed set up. I'm. A little jealous

Thanks, Arthur. Wish I could rustle you up a DIY PSU in acknowledgement.
