    Thank you. We're still packing and dealing with tons of paper work as usual, but we're getting closer.

    Yes, I think the new room will be better. My current room is 11.5' x 15.5' with an 8' ceiling. The new room will be 13' x 21', again with an 8' ceiling. The only real issue that I will have to deal with is with the TV. The wall where the system will be, there's a rather larger window right in the middle of that wall, so I obviously won't be able to mount the TV up high like it is now. I'm going to have to have it on a stand of some sort, which stinks. I'm sure I'll figure it out one way or another.

    Re: Chops' Current System Pics ....

    Here's the system in our (new to us) home that we just purchased. I changed things up a bit with the system, pulling the Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 2 amp out and bringing back these little NuPrime STA-9 amps. Also brought back the Polk Audio PSW-505 subs. It's hard to tell from the pics, but the main speakers are pulled 5' out from the wall, and they can come out further if need be. So far, so good, for only living in the house for a week.

    Re: Chops' Current System Pics ....

    Been playing with speaker/sub placement a lot more lately, as well as crossover and gain settings on the subs. The speakers front baffles are now just over 6 feet from the front wall, the subs are about an additional 8 inches further out than in these pictures. Tweaking width spacing and toe in about 1/4 inch intervals, this system is finally creating an extremely realistic, holographic sound stage with great depth, width and pretty decent height. With the right recordings, the speakers completely disappear as well as the subs.

    I'm really enjoying the system in this new, larger room/house.

    That's Charlie. She's my little music listening buddy. In fact, she's on the couch with me right now digging a new jazz album on Qobuz (Catch The Wind by Herb Alpert).

    Thanks, Mike! I'm glad this new room is working out as well. It's great to finally have a decent sized, solid room. There will definitely be acoustic room treatments for this room in the future.

    I brought out my custom white quartz slabs that I had made several years back, and put them under the NuPrime amps. And of course, some of the kitties laying around enjoying the system with me.
