Bring it on Lex Luther.

It's Lex Luthor. Must have been playing Luther Vandross or reading Martin Luther recently.

I cringe looking at those shows now, but back then I only wrinkled my mouth a bit at times. I much prefer the current run of DC animated movies.

I think they could work were it not for the "Super Friends" logo.

Oops Mr. Luthor has been fixed. Thanks. I love those classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Not a fan of the new animated stuff.

I'm not sure if they'll stay on the subs or not?

If they're stuck on (tape, Blu-Tak?), or there's no significant vibration when the subs are working, maybe. But if they're not very heavy I'd think they may need reinforcement, otherwise they may shuffle off or fall over time during sub-heavy concerts or movies. Have you tried it yet? Watch/listen normally and note if they move over time. Use something harmless to the sub's finish to mark their original position.

I was more a fan of The Herculoids and Space Ghost than the others. I also liked The Galaxy Trio; for me, they could have had top billing over Birdman in their show.

They are kind of heavy and have felt on the bottom of their base. With that said, we watched Narnia: Dawn Treader last night. When I turned the lights back on, I noticed Aquaman had moved. So, back on the shelf they go.

Lol. The Herculoids and Space Ghost rock!

Waboman,

As I mentioned over in my thread, I came over to gawk at your Salamander Synergy rack. I notice you didn't get the rear panels, or didn't put them on at least. There are some basic ones that come with the unit, and some fancier ones that are optional. Why didn't you use those? Was it for easier access, better ventilation, etc?

And yours looks like the cherry unit. It looks nice in your setup. I don't think cherry works in my room, though. And, what shelf spacing do you have in there? It looks nice and comfortable.

Whassup Prepress?

Thanks for the thread resurrection. It's the walking dead.

I did get the cherry wood. I do think black will look really good in your place. Yes, it came with a rear panel. I chose not to install it 1) for ventialtion and 2) easier access.

Let me make one big suggestion. Get the casters! I can't stress that enough. I didn't and I pay the price every time I need to contort my arse behind the cabinet and work on a component. As for shelf spacing I just winged it. I made sure my AVP had plenty of room as that gets the warmest. The Mac amps, as you know, stay pretty darn cool even under heavy operation.

Looking forward to what you decide on.

I am leaning black/black; it'll stay out of the way more when watching concerts and things. The big challenge still is making it work.

Ha. I watched Thor recently and the box for my new router was sitting on top of the left speaker. It fell off during an explosion.

That Synergy (full config) weighs 203 pounds! Ouch. Forget casters, I'm thinking about how to get it upstairs! The poor delivery guys! But, that's fully loaded with doors and back panels.

Thor is an LFE juggernaut! You know it was good when things start falling down.

Most definitely, it's a solid, heavy stand. Have some lemonade for the delivery guys. I'm telling you, prepress, get the casters. You'll be happier in the long run.

If the casters work on carpet and hard floor simultaneously, then it's good. I wasn't sure I wouldn't get just the basic rack, though, as that would blend better with the Sanus Euros on either side. There's also the matter of making space for the Synergy to begin with. If I can't figure that out, it's all for naught. Plus, I'd need to get rid of the existing cabinet. It's only a 1BR apartment, so space is at a premium.

We can make it work, prepress. I suggest the casters only out of my own short sightedness. My stand is on carpet, and impossible to move if I need to get back there and do something.

Yes, yours is too close to the back wall. I do have some space behind my setup so I can get back there, though it's a bit tight. Can you turn the components around on their shelves and get to the back that way?

That's good you're giving yourself some space to work on things, should the need arrive. The only way I can do any work is contorting my arse behind the stand. Not a pretty picture.

Hey Wabo, that was the first thing I did on my stand was installing casters. The stand not loaded is at least 150-200Lbs. Once you throw in the equipment and 60" monitor it was not going anywhere. I have moved that stand at least 5 times since I bought it. $50 on casters was well spent money.

I completely agree, HTG. I wish I had the foresight to add them on my stand.

My man Wabo is probably chilling somewhere on Wailea Beach sipping his Woodford Reserve on the rocks, chasing it with a Corona... Hence the lack of activity on AVS. I won't give up until I can get a ride on that private jet, LOL...

Just checking in my friend, to see how things are going. Peace!

What it is, dd?

Thanks for the drive-by.

I can only dream of living the dd lifestyle. I wish I was lounging on Wailea Beach, sipping some good bourbon. Hell, I may even throw an umbrella in the glass. But in reality, it's a balmy 19° outside and instead of soft sand on the ground there's cold snow.

How have you been, amigo? Have you got those beautiful Cremona Auditor M's all broken in and fine tuned?

40F is about where most Kalifornians would start moving south towards the heat... 19F?? I don't think we can count that low!! Snow is nice though, everyone's Xmas lights kinda look out of whack with sunny, dry, 65F weather...

Yeah, the SF's are broken in and enjoying themselves in their new home! They sound good very accurate especially with classical.

I've been allright, finally made the move to one of them iphones. Hell, I can receive texts now! The Siri chick is great when she's in a good mood!

We've actually had a "warm" spell the last two days. As I type this it's currently 36° outside. All the snow has melted.

Great to hear you've been enjoying your SFs. They sure are gorgeous speakers. I've not had the luxury of listening to them. How do they perform with rock n roll music? Sorry, but the Wabo can't do classical.

Hehe. You finally got rid of your rotary dial. How is the 4S? I hear Siri is a sassy lil' wench. I'm still slumming it with the plain old 4 version.
