    I have 2 2200's - that is what I think about them.

    Power and nice sound in a simple package.

    Put up a little surround system - ALL KEF speakers (except the sub). They are Q-15's and a KEF center channel. The sub is a 3 cu. ft. PE cabinet stuffed with 4 lbs of fiberfill using a Titanic 1200 driver and a 250 watt plate amp (it rattles the walls :D ). Power is by an old Sony STR-1000ES receiver.

    using Pinpoint AM-40 brackets on the speakers and a shelf on top of the screen.

    Moved to a new house in Ann Arbor, MI and playing around with speakers in the living room. This is the current system.

    A friend in MA rebuilt it (Markus - where are you?) and did the veneering - yes it is a maggie tube amp - it doesn't get used much currently.

    Are those vertical speakers (the ones in the foreground) the kit-built ones that were at AKFest 2012? If so, they sounded gorgeous. :yes:

    Yes they were - good ol' Tang Band kit.

    I've heard those Monitor Audio speakers.
    Been searching for a pair ever since.

    they are hard to find. Talk about a rare bird of a speaker. Even in England they are rare.

    Nice systems!
    I love those oblong drivers in your speakers, even if it makes them look like The Invisible Monster from Jonny Quest. Hell, that's probably why I like them!

    The Eaton woofers are different it is a pulp fiber/aluminum cone woofer. The cabinets are carved out of MDF.

    who knew that 220 WPC amp would make some little single drivers sound so good :D .

    Also got an Adcom GFP-565 preamp I am using now - it is much better than the Kenwood Basic C1 I have and it is no slouch. Listed is the spec sheet for the special Tang Band driver. I really could imagine a bigger cabinet for this driver.
