So this is both our dining room (though we usually eat at a kitchen table) and my listening room. The big comfy listening chair rotates, when desired, to face towards the living room of this open concept area. I have 3 systems set up. Vintage Marantz 4140 integrated amp -> Axiom M50 speakers. DB Systems preamp -> Bryston 2B amp -> Tannoy Berkeley speakers. Technics SL1200 and AR 77XB turntables. CD players, tuner, and EQ. (set flat -6db to attenuate preamp output) Not visible around the corner is a Philips CD player -> Schiit SYS passive preamp -> Belles Two amp -> Paradigm Phantom speakers. SuperTramp, Pink Floyd, and Led Zep playing this Friday night.
