I like your Vicoustic panels too.
That is a stunning and beautiful looking stack.
Love the rack and hardware color contrast.
Nicely done!

My modest little set up. I've had the Performance SE for 2 years now and it's still my pride and joy. Package deal with Satisfy Carbon directwired arm and Maestro Cart.

I have, still sitting in the box, Clearaudio Emotion Black with satisfy tonearm. I don't have a cartridge yet but most likely I will get the the maestro wood, like DBZ.

Thanks Parabellum. I'd be itching to get any cart on it and give it a spin. I admire your self control. Although, I remember I waited for a whole week with mine, just so I had the house free and a good few hours to set it up properly.

By the way, no comments on the first photo? Purely a happy co-incidence, which I spotted after the event. Does everyone see it?

Beautiful photos.
How do you like the Maestro cartridge?
I've never had the pleasure...though have heard good things.

I'd love to post a picture of mine, but I don't have it yet. New ETA for a Performance DC in my hands looks like early to mid September.
