@celtic66 Thanks a lot.  Agreed, less than ideal.  But, hey, at least this room/cave is all mine.  The family avoids it like the plague!

@steve59:  Thanks.  I will have a look at the Meridians. @celtic66: Thanks.  I hear you on proper stands, room treatments etc.  But I am far from that nirvana in this room at this point, unfortunately. So, the speakers are sitting on Elfa tall... 
KT 170
Hi everyone, just curious if anyone is running the KT170s and their impressions here in 2024.  I have been running them since March 2022 on my Black Ice F35 integrated amp, and I am happy with them.  I keep the KT150s as backup, though I never rea...

Magic returns in seldom used bookshelves?
Hi menosavy, It has been a little over a year now.  Any update on this?  I own a pair of the Ascend Sierra 2EX, and they are currently in a box as I bought a pair of ATC SCM11 v2. I am about to swap out with the Ascends to see how they interact w... 
Over Tubing it?
Thanks a lot for all of your thoughts on this.  Very helpful.  I am re-committing to the tube DAC for a while and just placed an order for some tubes from Brent Jesse.  I am interested in what rolling in other tubes will bring to or detract from m... 
What are some of your favorite "COLD" songs?
Cold Ethyl - Alice Cooper      
Share MYSTICAL, HAUNTING songs
Awesome lists. Agree with many of these, and others I have never heard of them. I will have to do some studying! I will have to compile some of mine, but real quick, I would add Mazzy Star. IMO, quite a few "haunting" moody songs. Also, their sin...
