Well if you ever get a chance, do listen, they have a smooth top-end with clean mids and punchy low-end. I really enjoy them.
I figured they were. Are all of yours the microsuede panels? I have two that are microsuede from ATS and the rest are their original/standard fabric.

They are all microsuede. I have 5 in my stairwell in the lightest color you see and a bass trap behind the sub in the same color in the corner.

Update since last year's pic.

I'm doing a few changes. Yesterday I picked up a vintage Sansui QRX-7001 Quadraphonic receiver/amp. The local seller is a retired electronics technician and completely recapped it and tuned it with the service manual and an o-scope. I really like the sound and the extra power sounds great (my tube amp only had 3.5W).

And I've added a lot of records in the last year, so I'm designing a built-in cabinet around the Sansui.

Here's a sketch. For those of you who speak Ikeanese... KALLAX EKBACKEN BRIMNES.

That sketch looks like it's gonna come out awesome -- in any case, you need to get your speakers out from beneath your gear, as it is now!

ONKYO TX-SR605B - oppo BDP-83 - SONY KDS-50A2020 SXRD
polkaudio RTi12 - polkaudio CSi30 - SpeakerCraft Preinstalled In-Ceiling Surrounds - polkaudio PSW350
2 CHANNEL:
ONKYO TX-8555 - marantz CC-4001 - TASCAM CD-RW900SL - Numark CDMIX 1 - Infinity PRIMUS P363BK - audio-technica AT-LP120-USB

Nice built-in cabinet but I have a question. What is all the open space above the turntable going to be used for? Why not build more cubicles to hold more vinyl? Just curious.

Great minds think alike.

The original intent was to leave the space between the cubes as wide as possible so it could function as a desk area if I ever removed the turntable (gasp) or for the next homeowner if we ever move (gasp).

I was originally going to just build a couple of shelves, but it turned out harder to cleanly and securely attach simple shelves to the side units, so last night I just bought another 2x2 Kallax cube and it's going in that upper space. That will be easier to attach crown molding across the top.

So that now gives me 20 cubes. But with 9' ceilings, the top row will be a little impractical to view/reach records. So I'll probably just use the bottom 14 for records and the top row for other stuff.

Here's the updated sketch:

Looks much better IMO with the extra cubes for vinyl. I bet it has been a fun project so far.

Yep, lots of fun. I got most of it done tonight. Rock solid.

Still need to do cable management and trim/crown.

Mac Mini w/ M2Tech HiFace USB to spdif converter running JRiver


My system integrates the HT setup also, but the HT bypass on the Naim allows to separate 2-ch from HT. The rest of the gear is a Marantz 7007, Oppo 103, Hsu VTF3 MK5 HP, Dynaudio Focus 210C and DM2/6 and a 55" Panasonic Plasma.

Spoiler!
Very nice, Callas.
