    I can tell you this....I wouldn't pay a 10th of retail for that chair. Well, let me rephrase that. I wouldn't pay for that chair, period. It looks very uncomfortable.

    The speakers are huge. I'm a little bewildered that the drivers are reversed from typical location, for one.....and the refractions/reflections from the driver baskets to the edge of the speaker? I would imagine some pretty bad smearing of the images.

    The Sombrero galaxy m104. This galaxy is challenging to shoot and process, this image took 48hrs of exposure time total, and the final result blew me away. This might be the most detailed image of the galaxy captured from the northern hemisphere by an amateur. I should mention btw this image uses zero noise reduction or AI processing (excluding color noise reduction), it is just good quality data. This galaxy is 30 million light years away in the constellation Virgo. This was captured of course from SRO, with several nights of sub-arcsecond seeing.

    Well, The Sombrero Galaxy sure looks better there than it did on the cover of the 1982 reissue of UFOs first album. :p

    Is it just me, or does that speaker wire seem a bit anemic, given the speakers (and presumably the amplifier(s))?

    Ooh, those are hard. Off the top of my head, the Luxman preamp's the only one I know. Well, and the Diatone loudspeakers :)

    Doc, I knew this one would be a hard one but you nailed two of them. Diatone DS-V 9000 are the speakers. A Yamaha 101M amplifier sits below the Luxman.....what I believe is a Luxman CL350.

    The other stack got way more difficult for me. From bottom to top...

    Accuphase PS500 PCU
    Technics SLZ1000 MASH DAC
    Technics SHX1000 CDP
    Technics SE-A200 amplifier
    Technics SU-C2000 Pre
