    A little late to the party.

    Here’s our family room set up. Sonus Faber Olympica 3. Wife chose the Rotel Ra1592 integrated because of ease of use.

    If I had my way, I’d have a monoblock set up in the corner.d84s5qh81bdf.jpeg

    Dad, this sticker will look great on the side of those speakers.

    I liked them about 6" off axis from my ears. I also liked them more when my ears were level with the woofer.

    My ears sit a bit higher than most people when listening. I’m 6’ 3” and sit kinda high up in the wheelchair compared to an able bodied person sitting lower in a recliner or on a couch. ;)

    I will keep adjusting as best I can to get great results.

    These speakers look fantastic. The finish is smooth as glass. They had some smudges and spots on them when they got here but I used Über rinseless car wash, mixed with distilled water, applied with a Chemical Guys microfiber towel.

    Wondering if any of the past owners put a coat of auto wax on these? @vcwatkins @kharp1 Perhaps the original owner Craig got them from on eBay?

    I talked to Dave @daboyz and he just used a damp cloth.

    I bought them used in South Carolina. Don't think the original owner did anything. I generally use a dry microfiber cloth. It's possible I used a bit of the Gibson guitar polish; not certain.

    My preferred placement was a bit wider than usual (probably close to an equilateral triangle) and toed in to a few degrees outside of direct line (a few feet behind listener's noggin). I did not try adjusting up/down and never got around to adding weight.

    Nice rig, enjoy!

    That's a wonderful product, especially on the piano black found on the LSI lineup. m543ukmroi00.jpg

    Hahaha I dont have my glasses on and I thought it said "Pimp Polish"!

    A heck of a game. I'm not a Ram fan but my buddy offered me a ticket to the game but I came to Vegas instead.

    I wish they were going to Vegas instead of the Raiders! Vegas is home but I never liked the Raiders.

    Most points scored on a Monday Night game...ever. It was a blast! Mahomes was off a tad and that's one reason they lost. But the LA referees called some BS calls to help the Rams but the RAMS did fight like heck to win too.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Just think how well this would sound IF you had two of the same tubes in it, instead of one RCA and one Chinese....

    Oh wait does it even work? didn't you lose a screw or nut down inside of it?

    Willow I probably should, but don't have the room. A chair goes in the corner where the tree is now. Got to so a little re-centering on the wall decor, lol.

    Thanks Joe. Yes the sound is getting better, but I still am looking for an amp to add to it.

    Cool beans. We can only do what we can only do. Looks nice and clean for sure. I will add that the lady in the right hand corner would drive me mad watching tv (I know she's there for the holidays) but I don't like anything in the screen's way.

    Thanks, there is no protective film on them. It's just light reflection on them as the room doesn't have a lot of light and I had the overhead light on as you can see the reflection on the TV screen.
