Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Belkin PureAV PF40 power console for all except Bryston and Anthem components.
Tweaks: Running all speakers (even the fronts) as "small" w/ 80hz crossover value due to prominent room nodes caused by cement walls on short walls.
Room Size (LxWxH): 21.5 x 21.5 x 8'
Room Comments/Treatments: Drapes over glass door walkout and 3 windows. Armstrong Optima 'Open Plan' foil #3353 suspended ceiling tile. Numerous homemade 2'x4' acoustic absorbers.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock (RUSH, the FIXX, Living Colour) and Classical soundtracks (Elliot Goldenthal)
System Goals/Comments: Acquisition of SACD player, completion of DIY acoustical room treatments, and acquiring the new Magnepan CCR.
System Strengths: A new world of bass enjoyment has occurred for me, thanks to my REL handling the bass. Hello Geddy Lee, nice to "hear" you.
System Weaknesses: My biggest compromise was to run the fronts in "small" mode crossing at 80Hz, using the REL in the "back" of the room to voice the bass. This successfuly dealt w/ the pronounced room nodes occuring along the long axis.
Video/HT System: Integrated

Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony DVP-NS715P DVD player
Other HT Gear: Microsoft Xbox 360 (used as a music source)
