BTW is that a DIY stand rack?

Cheers!

Thank you Rod!!!

Yes on the stand. It's morphed a few times from the original design and build. It was a fun and easy project, ready made dowels, sheets of white pine, stain, clear, steel wool, cheese cloth, jig saw, drill and wood screws and presto.

Here is a pic of the original build, quite different from what you saw earlier I designed it to house the sub, didn't work out to well sonically, so I moved it out, especially when I got my second sub, I needed a little symmetry





Why four speakers in the front? Is that for MC SACDS?

Hi and thanks for asking. I was running a 7.2 set up for home theater with a wide configuration. Killer sound that way! I chose towers to match my mains as the front sound stage is literally doubled at times, especially with musical scores. But the wide channels really widen the sound stage like no other!


BTW, I've seen your set up, I really like the all tower B&W set up, very classy looking, I'm sure the sound has got to be unbelievable!


Cheers!

1960's KLH Model 20 15 watts per channel four ohm, 10" two way speakers. Cabinets are made of solid plywood with a walnut veneer finish.

Sound great and best of all I didn't pay a dime for anything. All this was found in a thrift store trash. ( I asked the manager before I took it just in case it was put there by mistake)

Hey guys. This my 2 channel PC set up and my first foray into hi-end audio. Looking into getting a pre-amp and turntable. It's not the cleanest, but moving soon so didn't bother making the cords perfect.

Ha, funny you mention that I took a video of them when I first got them. I haven't heard any port noise or chuffing or anything, but yeah lots of air movement when you really go crazy with the bass.




Still most of the time I use them for 2 channel music at very reasonable (85 db's or less) volume. It's nice to know I can go nuts when the mood strikes though.

Just picked up a pair of SF Toys. They're small, but man do they sound great. The rest of my setup is a mess currently, so I won't post the whole thing.

I am looking to do wide as well I will move the 802Diamond to wide position and get a pair of 805Diamond for back surround! I am waiting for a processor that will allowme to do that without paying $20,000 for a processor!

So that way I can do 9.2.4

I am a a little late to this thread but my, vintage, office 2 channel system is:

Marantz 2265b
Pioneer HPM-100
Pioneer PL-S50
Sony CDP-CX355

I bought the receiver and speakers in 1976, the turntable in 82ish and the disc changer in 1999.

Almost 40 years old and still kicking... hard!

2 more posts and I can include pics

Yay, I have crossed the threshold

I need to figure out some shelving, other than the current wire rack/plywood, I have hundreds of LP's that I would like to move out of boxes and off the closet shelf. I was thinking about just building a wall unit to hold the equipment and albums, maybe I should start a thread and see what others are doing.

Look into the Kallax line from Ikea. You can mix and match, stack, different pieces. The cubbies are perfect size for LP storage.
