    I added a pair of Jennings Research Contrara to the stable today. Gorgeous speakers. A friend of mine was going to donate them to GW. I said no your not!!! He gave them to me and refused payment. He said all drivers work. I'll open them up at a later time to check them out. I didnpop the Peerless out and its a 7510. 751031.

    Now that warmer weather has finally entered, I moved the FW J2 from the main listening room,to the much cooler “Pit”. The J2 generates some serious heat! The FW F5 is much cooler in comparison. So until A/C season is over, the amp swap will remain in place.

    I wish I had to worry about seasonal issues with my multiple first watt amps... first world problems am I right?

    I wouldn't argue with some pictures. Happy listening.

    Thanks! I purchased some chrome furniture legs from epay, and attached them to bamboo cutting boards. I think it ran me about $60, all in to make 2.

    Same sound signature. Just bigger everything.

    Actually, the biggest immediate impact is at lower volumes. Just seems huge still at very moderate levels.

    I have a very large room to fill, so it’s what I expected based on the 2’s.

    That makes buying "blind" much easier. You know as you go up the the line,you will get more of what you had. Nice room! And yes,it looks like a very big space.

    Got a TV stand for the TV so I could raise the TV and put the 703 in front of it. Also moved the Music Hall A70.2 integrated amp to where it was and rearranged other equipment. Still have to find a place for the chair next to the fireplace. It will go to another room. We still need to hang pictures and get more furniture for the new house as it's a long way from being finished. Also going to add a mantle above the fireplace.

    @Milito - Scoot that center channel forward so it's flush with the edge.

    It would also help to angle the center up so that it is aimed at the ears versus the stomach.

    Finally put it together. Picked up a nice little NAD 310 integrated to go with my Keces 151 MKII and recapped RTi35s. Nothing esoteric but it puts a smile on my face for a budget computer rig.
