Those panels look really good. I have been looking for a way to hide the wiring up to my TV, since I wall mounted it, but thought that cable trunking looked a bit ghetto. If I may, can I steal your idea? Did you fill them with Rockwool, or something similar, or are they purely decorative?

By all means steal my idea, hell I did myself.smile.gif I'm not sure what the panels are made of. I purchased them from ATS Acoustics online. Thanks for the compliments.

I just cruised your thread. Very nice transformation! The detail work on the surrounds is impressive, and what a difference from those satellites to the opposing drivers! Good work.

I'm also an Emotiva guy, three amps and growing biggrin.gif I'll be looking forward to your next upgrade smile.gif

Thanks for stopping by guys! Hope y'all had a great holiday season! Looks like my next upgrade may be coming soon. I may be trading out the M1S for Forest. I'm debating now whether I should or not. Should make a decision soon.

I received my Cambridge Audio DAC Magic 100 today. I'll use this until I can upgrade to a W4S DAC 2. That is unless a make a stop in between with the W4S uDAC.

Congrats dude. I heard some Totem speakers a while back and really liked them. Couldn't believe the amount of bass they put out as they tend to use smaller drivers/enclosures.

Been a while since I've posted here so I thought I would share my latest updates. The SVS PB12 is out and so are the Totem speakers and CA DAC Magic 100. In are Scansonic MB2.5 and MB Center along with Naim Uniti 2. No surrounds as of now either. Running 3.1 for now. Will add surrounds at some point.

Never heard tubes but my dealer uses Naim a good bit for demoing the Scansonic line. I use a NaimUniti 2 for mine.

Thought I would give an update. I finally have surrounds again. Stayed with Scansonic, MB-1, so I have Scansonic all the way around. Happy with where I am now and only need to add some Vicoustic Wavewood Diffuser panels on the wall above the speakers. Next upgrades will probably be new receiver and TV but I'm in no hurry for that since both are still working great. Here's a crappy picture but you can see where the surrounds are now. My wife doesn't like the placement of these. She liked the wall mounted surrounds much better. I'm ok with either, I just wanted to stay with Scansonic speakers and didn't feel comfortable mounting these on the wall.

Here's a pic of the front too. The Scansonics like to spread wide to sound their best.
