My schedule is tough sometimes and a few of the items in my collection are no longer on store shelves, like my wharfedale evo2's but I wouldn't mind showing someone something I have that they are thinking about purchasing if I can get the schedule to work...

Stuff that is still available...

jolida 202 tube amplifier powering Tekton lores {with grilles lol}

Wharfedale Jade 5's, powered by carver mono blocks that are no longer available for sale

Wharfedale evo2-40s, powered by emotiva xpa2 and xda2 with custom made crossovers and 2-12" 300w subs {speakers are hard to find now but the electronics are available...}

Wharfedale evo2-08's powered by emotiva mini X with 12" 200 watt sub

Ascend acoustics, cbm170se, 200se, and 340se's I have pretty much all the ascends sierras {at my office} soon sierra 2's and someday towers...

HSU VTF2 subwoofers, UMC200 pro, XPA5 amplifier

Carnegie Acoustics CSB1's, with 2 SVS sb12nsd subs, powered by outlaw 2200 monos with a parasound 2100 pre

And a few more things, A lot of stuff at my office and lake house too wharfedale dentons with a luxman i-amp, jade 1 books with a wadia dac amp, and more, and I am always changing gear around, I dont buy super high end, since I havent heard the speaker that sounds much better than the stuff in the under $2000 range, but someday i may, who knows...

My home is located in North East CT on the, CT, RI, MA line, minutes from webster mass, and minutes from Rhode Island line kind of in the corner here... PM me, if there is something you are interested in that I have and we can figure a time between work, work, work, and family I would be happy to play some music for you...

HT-Emotiva UMC200 and XPA5, Ascend 340se front stage, 200se surrounds, Dual HSU VTF2's
Bedroom music-jolida 202 integrated & Tekton Lores
Formal parlor music- XPA2 & XDA2, Wharfedale Evo2-40's, dual WD sw subs, pure i20
Guest parlor-Parasound 2100 outlaw 2200 monos, csb1 bookshelfs, dual SVS sb12nsd subs

Houston TX (Southwest suburbs)

This is my recently cobbled together a 5.0 system with some stuff I had around from the days when I had time to be a true audiophile.

Left and right: Acoustat 2+2
Center: Cambridge Soundworks Centerstage
Surrounds: Minimus 7

I think these are all obsolete, but may satisfy the curiosity of folks who were around in the '80s. (Or maybe folks who wonder what the '80s were like.)

Then I added a subwoofer to get to a 5.1 system: PSA XV15SE.

I'm a home theater novice, so I'd be interested in visits from people who can advise on how to make things sound better, and I'd be interested in visiting folks who have inexpensive to moderate systems that sound really good.

Well, the HSU sub is one that I'm considering vtf3 mk5) and I'm definitely trying to listen to different brands to get a better idea of their differences and get a better idea of what I really like and don't like.

Well the HB-1s are being used as wides but I could move them into the mains positions to demo. Currently I run monitor audio rx8s as my mains. So at least there's two you could cross off the list.
