    I already miss those damn Harbeths but given my space and "overstock" of small british monitors. My Acoustic Energy AE1 , Spendor Ls3/5a , JR149 etc etc blah blah blah will have to suffice. I love the clean look of your space and system set up.

    Once we get our addition done and later, Garage / Home Studio , I can see a similar micro sized listening space where the office currently is
    .
    Glad the speakers found a great home.

    If you opt to "upgrade" the P25.. .I know a guy with a few tables that might be worthy of that system and space ( VPI scoutmaster?, Thorens TD124 ( for restoration), Sota Nova Star/ SME V... you get the idea) :deal:

    Largely cosmetic update to main system. After several years, I finally painted the skylines diffusors. :)

    After the old DVR/cablebox died in the HT, we got a newer, higher capacity one (which thrilled wifey to no end) which was substantially more compact in every dimension. I had always lamented that the center speaker had slightly obscured a lower section of the screen. With the new arrangement, I ended up removing a shelf and placing the box atop the center. Voila - solved the problem and provided a spare shelf. What to do with it?

    Similarly, the only thing on the lowest shelf in the main system was a small power supply for the microRendu endpoint. I moved it to the bench behind the gear in the dormer and ended up with a second similar shelf. With two, I decided to use them as amplifier stands which scored nicely with wifey as it made vacuuming the space easier. Win win.

    The room looks very comfy - I like the side table that the turntable is on.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what are those huge electrostatic speakers in your main area? Magnepans?

    Actually, Magnepans are not electrostatics. Hence the name - they are magnetically driven planars. I started out with those in the 70s before moving to electrostatics.

    They are Sound Lab U-1PX, now called U-790s (seven foot tall, 90 degree radiation angle). The current product uses 45 degree panels and they make eight and nine foot tall models as well. More info available if you go to my profile page and click the home page link.

    And, all the other gear is inside there as well. Those front slats are open-air so it's somewhat vented.

    If you're looking for vintage, how about something like a MasterCrafters Starlight Television Clock:

    It was intended to be visible from across the room and there is a switch in the back of the base for turning the light on and off.

    Decided to get the big screen TV out of the room so I could make things a little less crowded.
