    I did it again, I pulled them away from the back wall. I do this every once in a while so that my wife doesn't notice.

    Lol! The Mrs hasn't really noticed I have 2 Mc300's in the basement! Shhhh! :)

    Make no mistake.. she has noticed, and like all top-tier predators, she is waiting for her moment to strike. You likely haven’t noticed that her shoe collection has been multiplying like rabbits.

    Oh I've noticed! :wink:

    ^^^^ John and Yoko preceded that with Two Virgins.

    The only way to make the new 705's that are coming work,
    I have to split off the 2-channel. With impromptu stands:

    I know, my cable management leaves a little to be desired. I don't have a whole lot of room to work with. My future plans of dealing with it is to have is to have a new audio rack built. Maybe after the holidays.

    my cable management style is pretty much of a piece with my personnel management style. Folks who worked for me seemed to like it, but... umm... it was pretty chaotic. :|

    With me, it's one of those things that it does bother me a little bit, but I'm not going to touch it unless I can do it right. That probably means a new rack and possibly a new power conditioner. At least it doesn't buzz, hum, catch fire or anything like that. I must admit though, since this new preamp is a top loader, it kind of took a turn for the worse. So far, it sounds pretty good. So, for the time being, I'm content.

    I made a port muffler out of some rolled up 3/4" strips of ScotchBrite pads and inserted them into the ports, with a marked improvement in the bass.
    I also backed my KEFs up closer to the wall and spread them out as far as I could without obstructing the closet door.
    This seemed to make the speakers "disappear" into the soundstage.
    I also moved the sub foward a few inches.
    All in all, I'm quite happy with the outcome.

    I am finally setting up my shop rig, ordered a pair of Elac Debut B5.2's to go with my vintage Pioneer SX-780. Speakers should be here Wednesday. I'll post some pics when it's connected up.

    What speakers? Appears to be an open baffle design.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    It took my wife a year+ to notice my "new to me" huge Golden Ear Triton Ones.

    BUT SHE DID FINALLY NOTICE THEM. ;):D
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    One day she'll ask you, "Is that amplifier with the big blue meters multiplying?" :o

    Will be interesting to see what you think of them (with that ol' STK-module-era Pioneer or other drivin' power). Also I will be interested to know what you put 'em on and how you have them arranged in the listening space.

    I've been listening to the 6.2s for quite a while, on and off, and I am still on the fence about them.

    Thanks Tony, I appreciate that. I got about 20 hours on the preamp and it seems to be breaking in nicely.

    Placement won’t be optimal. They’re actually going on top of my gun safe, on either side of the receiver. I may wall mount them later, to spread them out a bit. I had the sx-780 in a Huge shop before driving some Energy C-9 towers, and it impressed.j

    us, too. :p
    Wedding present, if memory serves.
    Very '80s -- the ones we have.
    I mean, I grew up with the early 60s style TV tables (all metal, aluminum, perhaps) -- just made to be graced with a Swanson TV Dinner. :|

    OK, I'll stop now.
