Default Built for the love of music.....

Here is the system as it stands today and has been for quite a while. It resolves and plays music in a very natural and musical way with great imaging, dynamics and energy in the room from low volumes all the way up. I've been through a lot of system changes over the years starting out again after a flood in the house in the early 90s when I lost a good vinyl 2-channel setup and a lot of LPs, trying to assemble a great hybrid 7.1 HT and 2-channel system, then moving past that back to 2-channel (all digital front-end this time) around 2008. I've been experimenting and tearing down + building back up ever since. I really like what the system gives me today and never thought I'd attain what I have, feeling very grateful along the way for how it all sounds.

I have an extensive music library bordering on the (as WAF tells me) insane. Love music of all types and my tastes run the gamut. Glad to be here and looking forward to participating, learning and contributing!

Thank you all! I've been buried with work, which cuts into my listening time (hate that when it happens!) and did manage to get the above posted yesterday. I will post pictures over the next day or two. Have a great weekend!

Tell me about it <LOL>,...I'm still recovering from pack/unpack/move in 2014; not likely to want to do that again anytime soon! The music collection takes even more boxes and is a distinct "PITA" to box up, move and unpack; but definitely worth it ! Have a great day!

Looks like these speakers can play big. Nothing is like big drivers.
Great system. Congrats!
