    Nice clean setup! Is that a boxer on the rug?

    Made some changes, added my separates into the mix. Yes I know Preamp on top of amp is no good but itll stay for the time being. I have played the Adcom for 10 hours at moderate volume and it has barely been warm...barely.

    Enjoying the system though, little tweaks here and there and some curiosities to try before I take a purchasing break (wedding coming up and the misses wants another little one running around).

    Your setup looks like it could a promo photo for the Signature line. The rack styling is on right on point with the Sig design.

    How have you liked the Kef's? I heard them at AXPONA and had a good talk with the brand Ambassador Jonan Coorg. He gave a good presentation and demo. He told me how he and his wife decided to clear out their rack of gear for the Wireless. The speakers sounded pretty damn good and that's saying a lot given the mega buck stuff at the show. At some point in the future I would love to try a set of these in my living room for a two channel system. The simplicity and capability of the setup is nice.

    So far, especially in the acoustically challenged room, they are doing fantastic. I have had them over a year. Since the firmware and app updates, the actual KEF app works much better. I actually have been using my Lumin D1 a little bit less since the update.
    I have a schiit sys passive in the mix as well so I can go between my Jolida D9 phono pre and the Lumin D1.
    @AsSiMiLaTeD is also using the KEF LS50W

    For the money and what's included on them, they are hard to beat.

    Don’t pay attention to the assorted [email protected] in the corner, I did this Friday after school and then went to bed, and have just now had time to snap a pic and start cleaning up. :)

    Not sure which one I like more. Perhaps I can audition each one for a couple of days.
    What say you?

    What a great idea. However the storage would be null and void because of the vibration lol.

    What TV? All I see is bits and pieces around the stand.
    On a more serious note, the TV could be mounted on a wall, and the stand would just be a place for pictures, records, etc.

    Lol! Viking

    Drew it’s mainly used at a pre, the Linns drive the mains for 90% of my listening. Only during movies does it drive the center and surrounds.
    So it’s warm, but never hot.
    The Linns are amazing, I can drive at ear bleeding levels and they just get warm.

    I like them all that is why I keep them all. Panel, point source, and cone speakers all have strengths and weaknesses. I like panel speakers for clarity, cone speakers sound pressure, and point source speakers are like some things in the middle of panel and cone speakers. This is how I use them. At night I listen to panel speakers. During the day if I can sit down to listen to music, I will turn on the point source speakers. If I have to do work around the house, I will turn on the cone speakers. There was time I just want to have only one good system and sell the rest but I know that I can't have all the sound I want just in one system.

    I know I'm probably nitpicking but, the fact that your speaker cable is not symmetrical on the left speaker is driving me krazy.

    But don't worry about me, I should be ok in a week or so.
