    Here's a couple pics when we weren't fully moved in yet, I'll get some better ones this weekend. This is before the Parasound A21 replaced the HCA1500:

    I found an older ESL setup.

    Looks familiar!

    Here's my old ESL setup (before I picked up the InnerSound MK II ESL amp :smile:

    Then I picked up an InnerSound MK II ESL amp and I got rid of the tube amps:

    Same setup after I got the VTI rack, after Roger Sanders converted my InnerSound MK II ESL amp to a Sanders ESL amp with all new boards and caps, and after I got the Modwright modified Sony 9100ES (Signature Truth mod w/ tube rectified power supply):

    Very nice Vic

    Thanks Ivan. That was one of the best setups I ever had. I guess you could call it my reference for which everything else is compared. Surprisingly, I didn't have that much invested in it. Sadly, I had to let it all go.

    Here are my loft pictures. Did some reorganizing tonight.

    Its a very unconventional setup wiring wise, but it works quite well.


    4jm3fda1l6ka.jpeg
    Right side bottom to top
    Pioneer LDS-1 Laserdisc player
    Anthem MRX-500
    Mitsubishi DA-A30

    Left side bottom to top:
    APC H15
    Custom HTPC
    Roku 3 | Linksys Switch | Netgear NAS
    Carver C-1

    Powercables are as follows:
    APC H15 - PS Audio AC-3
    Anthem MRX-500 - PS Audio AC-3
    Polk MicroPro 2000 - PS Audio AC-3
    HTPC - Signal Cable Digital Reference

    The rest of my source cables are a mixture of Audioquest Component cables, generic HDMI/Optical and Blue Jeans Cable LC-1

    The HDMI is out on the anthem, but the component output works, so the wiring is weird in that the Roku and HTPC go straight to the TV, with sound coming via the optical output of the TV to the Anthem.

    The Laserdisc uses Analog inputs on the Anthem, and sends them out via Component to the TV.

    Speakers are AV123 ELT525t towers, and I have a Polk Micropro 2000 sub. Nothing fancy but in my room its the perfect mix, and those that have heard it would agree. The couch is also super comfy (aint that right Russ)......

    Cathy is the queen of audio here. What I really like about her and respect is that she enjoys what she has. She's one polkie I'd like to have a coffee with one day.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Thank you JF, this means the world to me.

    I know I don't have the latest and greatest, but I have the best that I could afford at any given time, and it is more than I ever thought I would have thanks to this forum.

    Also wanting to keep my space open with room to move, and living with the ingrained lifetime habit of listening to my depression era parents always telling us to make do with what we have.

    It was a struggle letting go of my still working RTA-8Ts but I fell in love with the S60s and so I made sure I gave my 8Ts who would appreciate them.

    I'm listening to my system right now and enjoying it, and will for most of the weekend. I hope you all have a terrific weekend! :)

    Very nice setup there Joey, ESPECIALLY for a college student. How did you like those AV123 Stranda units? I've never seen those until recently when a set was offered on the local CL. In that same beautiful rosewood finish.
