    Long time lurker here...this is my modest setup in a 12’X12’ listening space. Here is my sometime listening companion...I think he just wants food at the moment... Receiver is a Pioneer SX-770, turntable is an AR-XA (cleaned up, but no mods) with a Shure M91ED cartridge and Jico N91ED stylus, New Large Advent speakers... a BIC Beam Box is my FM antenna, tape deck is a Luxman K-220, CD player is a JVC XL-Z444, a BSR spectrum analyzer... Spent the last month and a half decluttering and rearranging, and I can finally spend my days off just listening and NOT planning, though in the back of my mind I ponder sound absorption and whether or not I need a DAC...

    I can't see any of the images. When I click the links I get an error message stating that I don't have permission to view the images.

    Sorry about that—I changed the privacy settings, hopefully the photos are visible now?

    I did not make the rack- I bought it from an Etsy seller in Albuquerque who makes them to order. 1.5” solid pine wood!

    All of this in an 11x12 bedroom, with a bed in the left rear corner and one of those cabinet electric fireplaces on the left wall. I also have another JL e110 sub arriving tomorrow in the mail.

    Hey @Johnny_Law,

    Are you running some Snell Type E in that pix? And some 26's? I have my Type E IV's up and the 26's now. I also have the S-X4Gs.

    Hey! Wow that's funny how similar our gear is! But things have exploded for me since then ... those are my old Oak E/IIIs which I've since replaced with a pair of walnut E/IIIs. I bet your E/IV's sound awesome. And those L26s were my gateway into vintage JBL! I've gone up and down the model line since then. No losers among them, that's for sure.

    Yea I have a few sets of JBL in the mix as well.. About to log into BT to update a post for some 4401's. Just sold off a set of 110s a few weeks back. Have had quite a few JBL's. I have been really liking the Decade 26's. Patrick ended up with the Type K's I had, have been really liking the E's, and being in a small listening space they fill the area with no problem. Man now I want to go home and start playing music! :)
