    I just got home tonight to set it up with the 3.1's that gwh so graciously karma'ed to me and the Halo Integrated. System sounds very nice. I never thought I'd have a system this nice, let alone being the third system...

    One more casualty of the Vanilla upgrade...
    But for those interested, you can still find the remnants of the Showcase here> http://web.archive.org/web/20090205040535/http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showcase/index.php

    but the last person to update was awhile ago. Still, it's kinda cool going back and seeing some of the members' setups, even though many have evolved since then - I know my current equipment is very different from what it was in 2007.

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Mr. Boston, is that an Akai cassette player? I have a GXC 706 D and it's looks very similar to yours. Nice Teac RTR you got there.

    [/quote] It is a Yamaha TC-520. I still have alot of my cassettes from the 70's :) the Akai players are built like tanks also. As long as you use them. Sitting is its worse enemy

    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Jeremy, that basement setup looks sweet! Looks like it's ready for a party and poker night. ;) Wow, those speaker stands in the den up front look stout!

    What a wonderful piece of nostalgia, the old days, when we had a systems' page. Didn't realize how much I missed member's systems till this thread.

    I don't have a camera that can do justice to an indoor shot. AND, my house and gear are in such a state of disarray that any pics would be embarrassing compared to all the well-cared for, arranged and clean systems above. I'd have to "dust" for a week or so before I could even take a shot! Then move the extra speakers and equipment out of the way, or de-clutter! Because, I'm a bit of a pack-rat. Every shot above is hospital quality compared to my mess!

    The second pic was actually the first. As soon as the camera comes out the dog comes running and sits down. Lol

    My 2 channel system. Not super impressive, but modded lsi15's on mono blocks sound super sweet.

    Thank you. It's too bad I don't have the discipline to get rid of some of the junk and tidy it up. If you find yourself in northern New England with a little time to spare, c'mon by and give a listen!
