Nice modest (cough...cough) system!!

Yes they are from Gothic. I bought unfinished and did the finishing work myself. I like them because they're durable, stackable and hold a lot of vinyl.

Awesome! I bought a 2 shelf with base set yesterday. Looking forward to getting it home (in several weeks).

JMT, am thinking of SF Ven 2.5. Since all Ven are front ported, can i keep it close to back wall say lest than 1 feet, and should they be always angled?

I don't see why you couldn't keep them close to the back wall. There is nothing in the back of the Venere's to impede from a sonics standpoint.

I'm in a cold and damp unfinished basement at the moment. I'd take a good sounding comfortable room like yours, any day.
Happy listening.

Vinod, just saw the second part of your question. As far as toeing in the speakers, I would suggest there are factors to consider. Room size, listening position, room acoustics, etc. I initially positioned my speakers without the bases so they would be easy to maneuver on the carpet. When they were positioned so they sounded the best I marked the area with tape, installed the bases and placed them on oak cutting boards. That allows me to fine tune the position as needed.
