    Mike, I agree. Nice rack. Are the shelves adjustable in height?

    Can you pan out to see your front wall? I'd like to see what you have there. Looks like acoustic treatments??

    Mike that room looks so great, I'll post it again for you.

    I remember the front view with the panels which I saved, but I don't remember seeing the turntable to the right.

    I'm sure it is relaxing to sit there even without music and enjoy what you have accomplished.

    Thank you Harry, very kind of you. Being Retired, I'm afforded the time to set and enjoy anytime I feel the 'need', which is about every day :)

    I have been told that the 2m bronze I now have on this turntable needs about 50 hours to break in. I put about 8 on it today. I think it has about 15 now and seems to be opening up.

    I have the same table, and also had a 2m Bronze on it..but I ended up going to a Denon DL-103 LOMC, and for me, it just opened up a whole new ear opening experience. It just took that table up a few notches..these Denon’s are special.

    I have a Denon DL-103R that is potted in a Paradox Pulse Guard. A very good Cartridge for the price of admission.

    When she wears down, I have plans on sending it to SoundSmith for their Ruby Cantilever upgrade. Owners have stated this takes the 103R to a whole different level.

    Well John, I must say thanks for your recommendation! I love a great deal, and I think I got one with these babies! Only 3 hundie! :smile:

    First impressions:
    Exquisitely detailed highs! Airy, in fact. Mid's a bit less body, as compared to the SRS's (expected) and definitely in need of a sub! I knew the lower bass response would never match that of the SRS, just based on the specs, but still what was there had good attack and was never boomy. I'll play around with the placement a bit, but if you like bass, then this would be a great pairing with a good sub.

    Very sensitive to toe-in. In fact, the manual recommends an equilateral triangle arrangement between the listening position and spacing between the speakers.

    Overall, I am very happy! I like them very much. Sure, not the SRS big rig performance, but an excellent performer (and great value) overall.

    Thank you sir! :smile:

    Do they recommend using a flashlight (from your listening position of course) to shine on the panels to make sure you are in the sweet spot?

    It's the Walmart version of the Ikea Kallax. I believe it's branded Better Homes & Garden. 8 square, there's two empty squares under the picture because new records are expensive but I'm getting there.
