Snell Sub 1800 for now, driven by an Inuke DSP3000 (I'm assembling two 4cu ft sealed flat packs for Ultimax 18's which will replace the snell)
Emotiva XPA-2 Gen1
Denon x3300 with Audyssey XT32 always used, and a 60hz crossover set for the Maggies, but im going to switch to 80hz once i have the dual sub setup and my subs are hopefully less localizable than the one is now.

I recognize those from about 25 years ago. Those were in my master bedroom system and rotated between my Sequerra Met 7s and the MG3s

Is that a Kef center? I have one that loos something like that...
Thanks! I've tried to convince my dad to remove the trim but he likes it.

And at 23 and a college graduate, she's still reminding me

Yes its a Kef reference series 200c. I love the Uni-Q coaxial, it makes having a horizontal center not so bad. It's by far the best center I've ever had. I bought it because we used to have Kef 104/2's so i figured it'd be the best timbre match possible for them. Now i've thrown that concept out of the window haha

Yup, I have a pair of Kef Q70's and a Model 100 from their old "Reference" series upstairs.

N.B.: Maggies do not like direct sunlight. I made sleeves for mine by taping together a couple of heavy black trash bags to cover them during the day when I wasn't listening to them.
