    Great systems! You have definitely done the most with the least. Very well done. I cover my speakers for a very mundane reason. Twin toddler grand kids that are at my house often. There is no door on the listening room, and those big white cones on the JBL L-100’s would be an attention grabber. So far they ignore the speakers with the grilles on. Eventually, I will probably have to do more to protect them.

    Those pet fences with the electric shock collar work well.

    Yeah! And fun to watch when kids violate the borders.

    This is what I am currently running.
    Just got it all up and running yesterday.

    Mcintosh c-28 pre
    Mcintosh MR 73 tuner
    Mcintosh 2100 amplifier
    2 stacked pairs of McIntosh ML-2 speakers
    Mcintosh MQ 102 EQ
    Custom Thorens TD-106 turntable

    21x10 room 8 ft ceiling.
    sounds good, sometimes really good depending on what music I'm playing, but room acoustics are not ideal, and it shows. lots of balancing and acoustic treatments to follow.

    Wayyyy too much stereo for this room, but I am working on doing some treatments to the room. acoustic panels, rug, etc.. should help a bit, but MAN....this set up sure looks awesome.

    So far, so good. Just finishing off the open plan build downstairs.
    Although the speakers are somewhat in the corners of the room up against the wall they present no problems - to what I can hear anyway.
    Nice and flush with no cables in view. My pet hate! Cables! 20171210_151328.jpg
    I'll add some stands under those HPM's when I get the time to make them.

    Hey Tea, I've always liked your speakers. Great implementation of the Heils.

    Thanks djangle. Ed Shilling gets credit for those. He sets the Heils up with his own external crossover. They add just the right amount of sparkle. I feel these speakers are a true hidden gem.

    Fabulous set up. What is your opinion of your Monarchy Audio monoblocks? Almost had a pair of the SE250 a few years back from a seller in Toronto....

    Thank you! I think they are fabulous. WAY underrated! To my ears,they are maybe a slight bit not as detailed as my First Watt F5. And I mean a slight bit. However,they will out preform the F5 when you want to push the volume.They truly are a great buy.
