Old school stuff, for sure. I'm sure you're happy with it, just resist going over to another guy's house with genuine subwoofers in a modern 7.2 (or better) system. Then you'll know what bass you're missing out on.

I have a smaller space too, one that's above my tenant's first floor apartment. so I can't have a monster cube either. At least my son down the road has such a system so I know.

As for the old speakers, what condition do you suppose the components in the crossovers are? Those must be at least 35 years old now. Do thoy have ferro-fluid cooled tweeters too? If so, probably not much ferro-fluid left...in fluid form.


System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB2000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 turntable w/ Sumiko Pearl cartridge, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck. The last 2 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

Yup, I'm on vacation right now, but I'll have to grab some pics when I get home. I definitely should have waited to join until I was home because I ain't got no pics to share.

We are having some warm days out here in Southern California at the moment and thought I would post some pics of my minimalist system in action. My Pioneer A/V receiver and Crown K2 amp which generate a decent amount of heat during hot days are off. Just the Topping TP32EX T-amp and the Squeezebox Touch playing Pandora in action. The Topping puts out 30 watts at 8 ohms and 50 watts at 4ohms according to its specs and always stays cool to the touch, going into my Klipsch Epic CF3's. A tiny little system, yet puts out a big and bold sound whenever the volume is turned up.
I am listening to my Ben Leinbach Pandora station. It has great mellow morning music if anyone wants to try it out.

You got some very nice and serious gear in those two systems.


Only 5 post
So welcome to this forums, and looking forward to see more of them


Obviously you got some knowledge about audio and video, and some other members could benefit of your knowledge. Hope to see you around.

Thank you Ray.
I've been involved with audio and video since 1984 when I was stationed in Japan while serving in the Marine Corps. Been hooked ever since. I would be glad to share what I know, if anyone is interested.

I think I will do that. In order to make room for the legacy Focus SE's I had to move my other speakers upstairs where they will be paired with other electronics. That system when setup will consist of a pair of NHT 3.3's in cherry finish, OPPO 103D which streams TIDAL audio, Macintosh C2300 tube preamp and my original Onkyo M5060 2 channel amp that I bought while in Japan in 1984. Pics coming soon

Nice clean setup and congrats getting those 'mains' out away from that front wall and the couch away from that back wall. .

I have only started my home theatre audio recently. So I buy the stuff second hand, bit by bit whatever I can afford.

Current set up:
Yamaha RXV1065
Some 25year old fronts that I got from my girlfriends dad. They have a tweeter at the top and a really big driver at the bottom, probably 12". No idea what brand, but they still sound pretty good.
Jamo S60 Centre
Jamo 200 Subwoofer
Polk Monitor 30

I am busy looking for front speakers but they are all so expensive. I know one should probably not mix and match speakers as I have at the moment, but its what I can afford for now.
