An integrated pre/amp from mid 1990s. 2 ch, about 150 wpc.
Right now, I only have front L and R speakers - they are SUPER OLD !!! (too embarrassed to mention): Paradigm 7se from 1987.
They were actually made in Canada way back then - cabinets and all. Shows how much the world has changed.
So the plan is KEF Ref 205/2 for front, KEF Ref center and then KEF R series surrounds.
It's a work in progress
I am 60/40 movies/music. I like dub step (Bassnectar, Nero), NIN, Massive Attack, some acoustical (Elliot Smith - RIP, Sarah Mclaughlin, Pumpkins). I like to listen really loud sometimes.
I really love sci-fi movies (just watched Oblivion - thought it was good).
Room is quite big: 30 x 22 x 9 - it has carpet.
I used to read Stereophile when i was much younger - a LONG time ago. Now i have the bug again. I bought the TV, Halo and Integra about a year ago. It has always been my dream to have B&W 800 series speakers with the big black bulge on top - i think they look really cool. But now i think KEF Ref look even bettter - GLOSS CHERY
