    Hey guys, the reverb, dynamic processor and the eq are just a light show for my enjoyment at night there not in the signal path I just like the cool factor.

    I was asking them about a vintage tube amp, still looking though and wound up bringing this stuff home :)

    Wow! That’s some pretty sick gear there!
    My uncle gave me a set of the BIG Cerwin Vegas when I first got into audio. Unfortunately, they are living with his sister in Oklahoma at this point, and we have no way to get them here. Not that I would ever use them, of course.
    You might as well call me Russ :tongue: :wink:

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Hook the Planet up to the Brio and achieve pure aural bliss!

    I thank both of them every time we talk, I talked to him about the Breo and the Pioneer and how I prefer the Pioneer over then Breo and he thinks a more laid back speaker set and different speaker cables. He told me you can tune the Breo with speaker cables, I thought he was kidding but he wasn't.
