Salamander Rack - 40+20 - (really annoying to have to stand on chair to work ttable...)
Tweaks: Left over Salamander feet under back of speakers to lean them forward 10 degrees so I don't need a high chair to listen.
Room Size (LxWxH): 13' x 17' x 9'
Room Comments/Treatments: Speakers not actually designed for near field listening...Room not such a problem due to dipole speakers...Room un-rectangular enough to make modes not serious issue... could use some diffusion behind me...
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): No Hip Hop Please
Anything else goes.
If pushed, will admit affinity for progressive rock...
System Goals/Comments: Really would like to actually hear my ESL-63/SW-63 system set up some day...
Oh yeah, then there's the SOTA Nova/ET2 I need to finish putting together one of these days. Guess I should spend less time listening to music.
System Strengths: It's paid for. It usually works.
System Weaknesses: I don't have enough toys yet.

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: B&K Reference 30 (would you believe I gotta hellova deal...)
Carver C-9 Sonic Holocaust Generator (sorry)

Comments on HT System: Okay, one of these days I'll get around to that part, but I work on surround systems every day. Sometimes your brain needs a rest...
