    Yesterday I bought a wider version of the oak cabinet shown in the picture. I now have my TV + DVD/HD-player on that

    The smaller version now functions as furniture for my humble HiFi system. (only space left for 1 full-sized HiFi component)


    I may put in the newer, wider oak cabinet, for HiFi-duties, when I (finally) take the plunge to get me a TT again.

    Very nice Alco, yes the room and furniture is indeed amazing, but the Sonneteer/Penaudio's look extremely nice! What speaker cables are you using there? Glad you got your speaker stands sorted too, look great! Tim

    Thanks very much, Rana, Adam and Tim. :) (where's a blushing smilie when ya need one) ;)

    I sold the Mission stands that I bought s/h early last week, 3 days ago.
    Now that the little Rebel's are back on the old Target stands I even prefer the looks again.
    (the more robust coloms of the Target give the small speaker a bit more balls imho) I still do prefer a silver stand to a black one, but that's just a minor preference.

    Well, I came across this cable by coincidence actually.
    When I got the Sonneteer amp earlier this year, I was glad to get rid of the stiff, thick Naim Naca5 cable I used for years.

    I went to a nearby HiFi-dealer that had some QED Silver Aniversary I wanted to try. According to some reviews I read this cable seem to be just my cup o' tea.

    The guy from the HiFi-store offered me to try some of their 'own brand' cable too, predicting that I probably didn't want to return it! (and he was right) :cool:

    The cable is very thin and flexible and has the same low price as the QED SA. I must confess I was not expecting much of it. (how looks can be deceptive)
    Its sonic character was similar to the QED SA though, but slightly more transparent and detailed.

    The HiFi-store is called 'De Groef', ('The Groove') ( http://webshop.degroefaudio.nl/#!/K...ef_Kabels/prod/457/De_Groef_speakerkabel.html , sorry, only in Dutch)
    I'm using these (dirt cheap) Nakamichi banana plugs on both ends:

    Thanks for the info. Alco! I got tired of the stiff Naca awhile back ago and find either the Supra Classic 6 or even the old stand-by Linn K20 just works great, especially on my Larsen 4's, which have a very small terminal cup. More flexibility is key here! I have also heard good things about the Nak plugs you are using too.

    I think the black Targets look very nice, fits the speaker very well! Tim

    That's one of the classier looking systems on this thread. I only wish my monstrosities looked so neat and unobtrusive....

    I agree with Koi, great looking setup, Gary! :) (probably sounding as good as well)

    You need to step back a little from the E-IIIRs. Camera's too close to capture their proportions. ;)

    Seen this over on the other side and it looks even better here as this site allows larger pictures to be viewed.

    Great work Gary and good to see the Canon is still in use!
