Sorry man, that was a really nice rig. I know I'd be depressed if I had to give up my speakers

...but you can still have fun with headphones

Energy C-9 speakers hooked up to a Denon DRA-625R reciever (for now). They sound great though. That's a Denon PRA-1500 pre-amp sitting on top, but I don't have a power amp yet (looking) so I can only use it for my headphones ATM.

Play CDs with my Yamaha CDC-555, handed down from the parents. Sounds great to me so I think I'll keep it for a while.

Don't have a good DVD player, so that'll probably be my next purcahse, after the amp of course. Anyone selling?





The tweeter on the left speaker was crushed durring shipping. I think it was probably caused by the pressure changing during its plane ride. It still sounds ok, but the dispersion characteristics are messed up so it sounds more rolled off, and high freq sounds sound shifted to the right a little.

I'm trying to see what I can do about it.

Paradigm Studio Reference 100 Version 2c in Cherry



In case you were wondering, this is not how they are set up, it is merely a photo for my insurance company.

And I was so looking forward to making a wisecrack about that when I saw the photo, too. Talk about wrecking a man's dreams.

Here are some photos of a friends setup! I wish I had a place like that. He is an architect so he has them placed in his studio. He has both B&W 803D and Logan Summits. Amplifier is Gamut, cd player Marantz 11S1 and cabling Nordost Valkiria. The studio has great acoustics as well!

Nice... That's 20k+ worth of speakers already Amps are around $10k? We're talking pretty big money here

Did you get a listen? How was it?

Did the 803D sound boomy in the bass at all? I personally thought it was, but it was probably the room (slightly too small).

I honestly thought the Summits were taller. The 803D aren't that big, so I guess the Summits aren't that big either.

I have just listened to the Summits and they were amazing. The 803D are his latest buy but I haven't been able to visit him after he got them (he lives in Greece). He sent me the photos to show me the new speakers and how he changed the room (he had everything setup differently last time). This summer I will have the chance. I would like to emphasize the importance of alcohol on the table.

The Summits are actually quite small. The Quest Zs and Prodigys are both much larger MLs. Those are clearly a case of size not mattering though, I've heard amazing things about the Summits. I had a chance to hear the much lower line Claritys earlier and they were amazing, I can only imagine what the top of the line sounds like.

Yes the Summits were amazing. I think this was the best setup I have listened so far. I have been in distributors/stores but nothing makes you feel more comfortable than listening to a friend's place.
