    Looks great Steve - I still think your Arts are some of the best sounding (and looking) speakers i've heard. Enjoy the new amp.

    Which JBLs are those Merlin? Look lovely.

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    Thanks for the kind comments guys, just can't believe it's been ten years for the speakers too but it might well be another. :)

    Agreed, lovely room, Steve - and the amp, a Lavardin! Nice one - it looks great! What appeals to you about its sound?

    Hi Jon,

    It seems to take what I had a step further, effortless sound with such range and without a trace of anything that I find distracting. It seems slightly more detailed (of the uncovered rather than highlighted type) and extended at the low end.

    But you know how these things are, innocent civilians would laugh at the kind of diminishing returns we shell out for. The bottom line is long listening sessions and .....just playing another track before turning in syndrome. :)

    ... you should see the airport and runways that my 6 year old makes with his lego sets..

    his play area is just in front of the rack.. :D

    Yes - the setup is to one side as you correctly observe - the right side is fully open..

    Hi YNWOAN,

    firstly - i could manage to post a pic of my friends rig on the fostex thread ;)


    there is a story to that crack on the TT cover ( it was a transit damage on a local flight ) but the TT itself is quite nice. A new lid needs to be ordered.. :)
