What's up AppleheadMay? So I see you finally sold your HA5000ANV. Still trying to procure a complete L3000?
As a long shot there is one for sale at http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b159496524, but it's not a good deal. I've been watching that for a while, the guy is asking an outrageous price and he has relisted it many times cause no one is buying.
His feedback is bad as well, but thought I'd mention it.
As for my own setup, took a few pictures below. I mentioned that I wouldn't buy a W3000 in our conversations way back, but I caved after all and bought one early last year IIRC. And I still have the W11R as you can see below, so I rotate the three of them every once in a while.
The L3000 is still my absolute favourite though, that one will never go anywhere if I can help it.
My setup, click for full-size. ESS 9018 balanced DAC, Beta 22 and L3000/W11R
A close up, the leather is still in good condition

It's really neat how fiery red the wood looks
