    Of course. Didn't even consider that, but you're right. Mine stays away from the HT system in our basement. Apparently, too complicated to want to learn. She just uses the TV/DVR in the family room.

    Both you and Hyfi are fortunate to have such supportive partners. My wife hates my toys and calls 'em "black boxes", plus with two boys running around I had to build a media room to store and protect my gear.

    Since you asked.......
    Here is a pic of the ES system as well as the other side of the room where the vinyl and some of my LD collection is stored. As you can see from the China cabinet in the middle of the vinyl compromises were made.... . Overall though you are right that I am lucky to have a wife that puts up with my addiction. However I have so little other free time it is about the only thing I can indulge in.

    BTW the Sony ES system consists of;

    Cassette Deck- RX79ES
    CD Player- CDP-C77ES
    Reciever- GA8ES w/remote

    Nice vinyl collection! IMO, definitely adds a little class to the living room. My wife would never let me have it though...

    I've always loved the wood side panels on the ES gear (your CDP). Sony made some of their best stuff in those days. Something died in Sony, as a company, when their founder passed away in the late 90s.

    I have a few ES CDPs myself, but dread the day when the laser goes.

    Thanks for sharing.

    WAF- I like the tall ones.....

    Had to do a little bargaining with the wife since I will to lay out some cash. She was not a big fan of how the Heresy's went with the rest of the living room decor so she said I can get the tube amp up and running if she could select another pair of speakers for the living room other than the Heresy's. I did not object too much since once I get the tube amp going I was going to probably have to move the Heresy's anyway or change the set up to accomodate the tube amp. So what would she choose.... vintage Electro-Voice?? KLH?? Dynaco??- No her choice was "the tall ones".....

    So no problem there as the Time Windows are one of my favorites and are great fit with the Adcom set-up.

    Moving Day.....Again

    I know -I know every time I say this is the last time I am moving stuff it lasts about a month. But I was able to find this little entertainment center today and it works perfectly in my second listening room. Very Very High WAF and I am happy with being able to use the KEF's again. The sony ES gear with the wood sides matches perfectly with the furniture. The black grills of the KEF's matches the TF-600's. My wife likes the Abbey Road pic in the back as well.

    Very nice! Are your speakers rear ported? Can you move them out from the windows any? I'd bet the windows with no treatment is sucking some of you bass out of the room.

    Nice job Styx. Too many vintage systems are a ramshackle mess. Good posters too. That makes me miss my dedicated listening space. I had the coolest posters.

    Yes, they're rear ported. The room is small 10X11, so placement is limited but they sound great, bass is nice and full....I'm a happy camper.

    Thanks. It's not the greatest room for music (better than not having one) but works well for me.

    Some before pics.

    Looks nice. My two cents worth of recommendations: invert the upper pair of stacked speakers to make more of a M-T-M array. Putting the tweeters closer together will reduce comb filtering.

    I definitely like the look of the "after" pictures...a very nice, peaceful listening spot. Good work.
    So, I broke into the palace

    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Cool

    VERY NICE.
    The company that starts selling receivers that look like that again is going to make a ton.
    WHEN did they forget that the style of the thing is important to the human operators?
    Not to detract from your fine system, but its so much easier to have a nice system
    with nice looking gear. We lost that down the road somewhere.

    I also want to thank you for showing your great listening space. Circumstances
    limit my options at present. MAYBE its time for me to go "back to the future"
    and consider some vintage.THANKS
