    I can relate. There is ZERO chance I will ever subject my self to that garbage again. Good god. I'll happily die single, because I can do what I want and have my main system in the living room vs packing into a f-ing room because someone else has no taste. Good riddance.

    Good on you, once you bounce back, you'll find that the things you put away to be a good marriage partner are probably the things you enjoy most and make you who you are. Never compromise. I had to marry an a$$hole to learn this but at least I am now in the know.

    The heart of my system in its new temporary home. Safely at my parents until my divorce is final. Seems counter intuitive to escape "To" your parents house to listen to music.

    Question: I currently have my rig on the opposite wall of the tv. I like that it gives an otherwise useless part of the room purpose. I also like being able to flip the couch around and sit in the sweet spot (when the kiddo isn't home). As I am replacing furniture and contemplating a new look to the living room, I am wondering about having the tv and hi-fi on the same wall so that I don't have to flip the couch.

    Any thoughts on this? I'm mostly just fishing for nuggets of wisdom before I unhook everything and move it around to realize I hate it and have to move it back (ha!)

    My hi-fi system is centered on my TV and it's great (it also shares that wall with my surround system). My monster of a couch isn't moving even if I had enough space to move it.

    Additionally, having the TV screen directly behind the hi-fi system currently is creating some sound reflections that would be eliminated.

    Damn, Smitty43. Just... damn. Can you say "comfortable?" I see why you listen to so much smooth jazz: the genre matches the vibe of your room. Just looking at your photo brought my blood pressure down to normal range. Between the Zu Omens, foliage, and matching lamps, I can't decide which is more relaxing. Diamonds are not a girl's best friend, a decent two-channel setup is. ;)

    The living/dining room currently has two systems. Here are a couple of old shots of the short-axis system.

    The Fisher, Dual, and KLH's have been replaced by, respectively, an HH Scott, Garrard Lab 80, and a pair of Dynaco A-35s

    And here is a shot down the long axis of the same room. The long-axis system comprises a Fisher 500B receiver, Thorens TD147 turntable, and Altec 892 Madera speakers. It sounds best at the far end of the room.

    Here is a closer view.

    Just got a new to me set of speakers. They are better then the JBL's I had in the "Tube Room" system These are Infinity Kappa 7.1 series 2 I was not sure if low powered tube amp would work but the KX-200 works great. Still need to check placement have not moved speaker's around room yet I just placed them in the same spot as the JBL speakers
