So this is my first HiFi system. I have been working on it since 2004 when I purchased my Rotel RSX-1067 and my Velodyne sub. I had been running Kenwood front channels for years, but finally, after getting my first REAL job, I was able to purchase a good set of B&W speakers.

This system is intended for home theater use, but will handle 2 channel playback that sounds pretty good for what it is. The RSX-1067 is driving 100wpc and drives all the speakers well, except I think the 9NTs could use a little more power. To that effect, I just purchased a ADCOM GFA-7805 that I have not been able to hook up yet. Its out for repairs.

The entertainment center is custom built and suspended by a single pole. This feature allows the whole station to swivel 25 degrees, which is great for working behind the system.

UPDATE: Added an ADCOM GFA-7805 to my system and its awesome. However now whenever I switch functions I get a "pop" sound. Not sure what is causing it. Any ideas?

Gentlemen, gentlemen, let's try to keep this thread on topic, shall we? This is about Jo's Fist System. Let's try to find out what he finds so frustrating/aggravating about it in order to solve his issues. Isn't that what forums and fellowship are all about?


"My Fist System"

What is a fist system? Do you clench your fists anxiously while listening? Does the system make you angry when you hear it? Do you have to fight for listening time? What gives?
