I saw your system in blu-ray forum. Love those B&W speakers. They are kind of hard to drive, aren't they?

Actually, they are not too bad. I had a Denon receiver powering them for about a month before I got my amplifier. The biggest difference, IMO, was the clarity the external amp brought to the sound at ALL volumes.

I'm trying to find something about your thread that I am NOT jealous of. I'll have to get back to you on that.


Beautiful setup man!

awesome setup.

It must be tough for you to get any work done in your home office with your beautiful ht just outside.

Very nice! I'm sure that SVS has no problems pressurizing that room.


Very clean set-up, and like the choices you made on gear! Good choice on all components.

Very nice. Is that a real fireplace? Can you take a picture with the BDi open? Want to see the inside goodness.

It is a gas fireplace. It warms the room very nice. Very much needed during the winter months.
Additional pics in my next post.

I manage to get all my work done first and then I get to play.

I love the sound in the room. Makes me happy every time I turn it on.

The SVS performs very well. Although it is only for HT duties. My 804S's do an awesome job for 2-channel.

These are not the best pictures I have ever taken, but they give you a sense of what is in the cabinet and how it is arranged.








The BDI rack has slots in each shelf for adequate cooling.

Update to setup...


Emotiva XPA-5 has been replaced with dual Emotiva XPA-1's. I am currently running a 2-channel setup. Still throwing around some options for my next upgrade... New DACs and music streamer or amps are at the top of my list right now.
