    I've seen her around from time to time, depending on how strong the edibles are. :biggrin:

    Umm... I don't know how to explain... This is how my current JBL room, secondary listening space, is today. I sold one pair of Klipsch Quartet today out of this room, so this photo lacks those 2 Speakers.

    My kid and some of my gear in the living room. The c32 and mr78 I just got recently. This is the newest gear I've had in years. The c32 is full of bells and whistles, a 12wpc monitor amplifier on board, a dynamic expander, a five band eq, etc. But, I am particularly impressed by the MR78! Now we are putting this gear thru it's paces with a period accurate recording of some Modest Mussorgsky :D - Pictures at an Exhibition / Night on Bald Mountain on a Telarc digital recording (1978)

    Not too shabby.

    The basement cave. Those are KEF 105.1s and DCM Timeframe 400s. The table is a Sansui SR-838.

    From top to bottom on the left:

    Xindak power conditioner (picked it up at the recent Fest)
    Cambridge Azur 651c
    Musical Fidelity A3cr Pre
    PS Audio HCA-2 amp
    Running this set up through JBL 4410s

    Below that are a Pioneer SX-1080 and Setton 440 that are not in the rotation at the moment

    Top to bottom on the right:

    AT turnable (pretty "meh" but serviceable for the moment while I sort out another table for the basement)
    APT Holman Pre
    Denon POA-1500
    Monster HTS-1600 Power Center

    This is driving a pair of AR3a's that Baco restored for me.

    Below that are a pair of Sansui 317 series separates that aren't in rotation.

    No fridge (so no beer), no toilet. So, once in awhile it's kind of necessary!

    That's a 1967 Williams Shangri-La

    Is it me or do the stands for the AR3a's look upside down?

    That picture frame at the top of your left speakers. Looks cool and creative. Is it a bunch of records stacked up ?
    Nice set up

    Making a few changes as I go - added another amp - Fisher CA-880 - very nice and lots of power. I know Fisher doesnt get much respect here, but there a few that are actually very good. This one is one of them. And it looks cool:

    I have sweet spot seating area of just 4-5 seats in the same line which are exactly opposite the the speakers. Seem to get the right punch only in those spots with a little toe in too for some better stereo mids. I have tried many speaker positioning s . Here you go .
    Pioneer A-9 amplifier
    Pioneer HPM-700 speakers with additional cs-c11 ribbon tweeters placed at the rear (not there in the photo) since the hpm ribbon tweeters are just for "show" and don't or should I rather say are barely audible .

    @zappafan2: please check out my next post - i didn't get your question right at first...

    better mids and more details with the Heresy. bass isn't deeper with the Heresy but has better quality. the -75s are easier to place, the Heresy definitely needs more effort and accuracy in placement. in my opinion the Heresy is the better speaker, no question. the Heresy is unique and special, great sound in a small cabinet:music:. you like it or you dislike completely. plus, i love the heritage-look. in my room it's a perfect fit.
    (but to be honest, i'm really privileged to be able to switch between the Heresy and the LS50 from time to time. both are great speakers. but don't get me wrong, for about five years i tried to live without a pair of Heresy. impossible at last;)).
