drooling... I've heard those KEF's on McIntosh amps and they were great. I would love to hear them on the PL monoblocks. Amazing.

Thanks abd1
I heard them on both, and imho primaluna sounded way better, is like they were made for each other.

Here is my living room system where I sometimes do some 2ch listening when my kids kick me out of the man cave.

Family Room AV Room

Here is a picture of my setup. I'm very lucky because I have a wife who has let me put up acoustic panels in the family room.

Gear is in signature. Very happy camper. Connectors and speaker cables by SVS. Biggest improvements in sound were the P5 and Oppo.

- To do list: crown molding, ceiling acoustic treatment, maybe skyline diffusers in front (for when screen is up for 2 channel listening) and behind seating position.

This hobby is a fun and expensive never ending series of improvements.

I see you get about as much mileage out of your fire place as we do.

Those are monster monitor speakers. Isn't that a newish design from Selah? The whole system looks very impressive.

Thanks! Your system looks great as well, I've always been very intrigued by Salk speakers.

They are pretty huge monitors, I don't think my wife likes them as much as I do. I don't have room for floorstanders in my current system, so I had Rick at Selah build me monitors that basically perform like large floorstanders. I've been dialing in my system's response using Dirac Live with the miniDSP DDRC-22D over the last couple days, and I'm just blown away by the performance of these speakers. All the room-induced boomy-ness is gone, and these things dig deep and are extremely tight and dynamic on the low end, and smooth and detailed through the mids and highs.

They are a very new Selah design, this is the first pair. I told Rick what I was after, we threw around a few ideas with different driver configurations and this is what we came up with. These ones are upgraded with Clarity Cap CSA capacitors in the tweeter and midrange network, and they seem to be opening up a little bit every time I play them. Especially after every LOUD listening session, they seem to open up more and more. They throw a massively tall, wide and deep pinpoint soundstage. Very detailed, but not forward at all. Their character is very neutral and maybe just a touch laid back, which pairs very well with the Esoteric source and the Krell amp.

I've never had a system that sounds as good or better as my system sounds right now.

Thanks, I love it too!

I especially love that it sounds just as good as a DAC (coax input) as well!
