Nice thread......great setup!
A Little Update;
Between 2014-2016 I have changed/sold many speakers in my main system from Martin Logan ESL, Ascend Acoustics Sierra NrT Towers, SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speakers, KEF LS50 White & Sonus Faber Venere 1.5 Speakers.
In all of that only speakers I regretted selling was KEF LS50 speakers, last month when I’m back in the U.S. I bought a KEF LS50 Titanium for main system.
With KEF LS50 every music sounds as how poor, good and very good recording reflects to have its own quality, these speakers are true to the music.
Extremely well recorded Vinyl, Hi-Res audio files sound phenomenal in my system. The most enjoyable speakers I’ve heard in the last few years, solid, accurate and full of detail with perfect midrange, plus surprisingly good bass response.
Paring with Parasound Halo P5Pre & A21Power may be main benefit of producing excellent sound in my system, bass response is so good that I’m not even using tone control like many other speakers I use to own and audition in my s channel system.
Speakers: KEF LS50 Titanium.
Analog: Denon DP47F w/DL-301mk2.
Digital: Marantz UD-7007 SACD/Hi-Res Audio Playback.
Amplifiers: Parasound Halo P5 Pre & Halo A21 Power.
Speaker Cables: AudioQuest Gibraltar 72 DBS.
Interconnects: AudioQuest Diamondback XLR & King Cobra, BigSur RCA Cables.
Power Supply: PS Audio Detect Power Center, PerfectWave AC-12 & Oyaide BlackMamba-∑ AC Cables.
20Amp AC line.
Excellent choice! I, too, regret selling my LS50s. They are very enjoyable speakers and do incredible things when given a proper environment to shine in.
Changed the stands with my old and taller B&W stands,
Sonic improvement is very noticeable.
These are my favorite mini monitor speakers in very long time, which I didn't realize until after I sold them.
Now they're here to stay for very long long time, thanks
Looks Amazing, Enjoy.....
Got A Pair Of Q Acoustics Q3020 Mini Monitors,
Trying it in main system before it settle in 2nd System.
A Few More Beauty Shots.,
Latest Picture With KEF R300 Speakers, I still have my beloved LS50s.
Great looking set up. Those speakers really match up well visually w the rest of your system and I can only imagine how great they must sound.
Thank you, I'm loving it.
How do the R300s compare to the LS50s?
Very transparent highs yet non fatiguing even after long hours of listening, so much better bass, even better than Ascend Sierra Towers, I use to have them with tone control on(bass control knob @ 2pm), I have to pull R300s out almost 3ft away from the wall because of too much bass (no need for tone control).
I still like the midrange of LS50s a little more than R300s, power handling of R300s is unlike many others, best of all when I play them loud sound signature/stereo imaging still the same which LS50s can't do, I am planning to keep them both, thanks
Tharbamar: My 3 1/2-year-old son simply can't get enough of the model scale cars displayed with your system. I've watched quite a few of your videos on You Tube. He'll point at the TV screen and yell "CAR!" Do you collect them? Or are they novelty items you like to display at various times?
I do have small collection of some classic cars, MB SL300 Gull Wing is my favorite design of all time, thanks
A little updated picture before moving LS50s to bed room.
I Like the way it Looks with Both Speakers but what do I Know
One of The Cleanest Systems I have Ever Seen.
Thank you Mike.
Very cool system!
I can't get over how cool the Qs look with their rounded edges. How do you like their sound / how do they compare?
Also, forgive me if this has been covered, but do you still have the Teac turntable or did you move on?
Hi! Qs are very nice, I like them a lot but now I have moved on.
I still have TEAC TN-300 in my second system, will be upgraded with Denon DL-80 soon and I'm really thinking of getting TEAC TN-550 because it may the most advanced affordable belt drive turntable.
