Speakers: PSB Synchrony 2 with a Sunfire Tru Sub Jr. behind each speaker to fill in the bottom
CD Player/DAC: Denon DVD5900 universal player(DVD-A, SACD, DVD, CD, yada yada yada). It does not suck.

Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Mid priced Monster Power conditioner
Room Size (LxWxH): 17' x 14' x 10'
Room Comments/Treatments: Carpeted. A wall with built in shelving loaded with LPs and books. Room could be a tad deeper but that ain't gonna happen.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Pop/Rock, Classical rock, Folk Rock, Alt. Country, Indie Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical
System Goals/Comments: 90% dedicated to LPs so obviously I want a system that captures the strengths of vinyl.
System Strengths: Sounds good to my tore up ears. Plenty of power and flexibility.
May not have reached the nth degree of air, transparency, and bass extension, but folks don't run screaming and holding their ears when I throw on the Cowboy Junkies either.
System Weaknesses: Wish we'd built the room a foot deeper
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: 65" Panny plasma-Media room
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Denon 2311CI-media room
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Media room-Def Tech Mythos 6 (LF, C, RF) Def Tech Mythos xxxx in celing for RS, LS, B&W ASW 750 (10") sub, Velo SPL-1000 (10")sub
Sources (DVD/VCR): Media room-Oppo BDP 83
Other HT Gear: Living room system, 25'x22'x12', Denon 2311CI, Sony NX-800 55" LED LCD, Oppo BDP-93, Def Tech Mythos STS Super Towers (LF & RF run full range, built in sub in each spkr), Def Tech Mythos 6 for Center, Def Tech Mythos in ceilings for LS, RS
Comments on HT System: Both rooms sound great, media room with Panny is 14x17x10 and is a good movie venue for up to 6, but living room system opens into huge kitchen, wood floors in both, so there are some sound issues. Media room, where we do 95% of viewing, is carpeted.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: wine, travel, reading, movies, music, golf, tennis, fishing, and some other stuff
