Nice speakers!

I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts they'll sound a lot better if you get them farther away from that back wall.

I'll bet those B&W's sound schweet!

Exactly. If Head-Fi were AA, we'd be telling each other to drink MORE.

And all you have to drink is So-Co and Chivas? I would have droped the Nordost for some good scotch.

No doubt! Right now, and for the next few months, the speakers have to occupy a temporary position in our master bedroom. Eventually, I'll have the freedom to properly position them.

Nice setup!

One more thing: does the plasma/LCD not become a source of unwanted reflections? I thought one of the golden rules of stereo setup is to place your speakers as far forward away from the screen as possible. Do you have a blanket you could put over the TV? Accompanied with you moving the speakers away from the wall, I think they'll be capable of some seriously deep, three dimensional soundstage

The current set-up isn't ideal. Actually, it's worse than it looks, since my only listening position is on the bed! We're building on to our house and eventually that room will become a dedicated listening area. Then, I'll have virtually no limitations on placement.

Having said that, the Vantages (with an Accoustic Arts cdp, a Cary SLP-98 pre-amp and Pass Labs amp) are truly amazing speakers even in less than ideal conditions. I am just totally in love with the Martin Logan sound signature.

I recently got new speakers. Already posted these in the Curse thread, but I'll just drop them in here as well.

Aurum Cantus Leisure II Deluxe's, running off of the Aleph M.

I would imagine so coming from OII's. Bahamawoman will never get you out of the new dedicated media room. It's a beautiful system Rob, congrats!

digitalmind those are gorgeous! A fellow Head-Fier has even asked me to reproduce that finish on his project, and sent me your pic as an example.
I really expected to see inflatable speakers in your system though.

Thanks, Steve. We'd love to have you drop by anytime you find yourself in the DFW area!
