The room is a long, rectangular-shaped, walkout basement with a large window behind the audio equipment rack (lots of light!). One half of the room is focused on 2 channel audio, then spinning the listening chair around enables video viewing, with a separate 5.1 surround system. The floor is a concrete slab, covered with carpet. I currently switch between the Spendors and Martin Logans, and now have a small powered sub-woofer along the right side wall (under the picture/CD shelf). Next will probably be a speaker upgrade and suggestions are welcome! I listen to rock, jazz and soul.

If the enlarged image comes up sideways on your computer - you can put the cursor in the pic, right click and then open it in a new tab, and it will display correctly. Kind of a hassle but it works on my desktop.


MJ - when I look at the enlarged photos on my desktop they did the same for me - came up distorted and sideways. I reported this to Jason at Agon - he enlarged the photos and they came up fine for him. I also looked at the enlarged photos on my ipad and they displayed correctly, so I am not sure what the issue is. I thought it may be a setting or software on my desktop in which the photos are launched. Sorry about that. 

Folkfreak - thx for the kind comment! I like to keep the 2 systems apart since I can optimize them for their intended purpose. 


Hi MJ, the photos come up fine for me. 

Btw cute idea to combine both 2ch and HT in this way. I used to have a mixed system with the 2ch pre on bypass for 5.1 use. However that got too complex, I like your solution better 😉


What a combination the PrimaLuna and Spendor pairing must be.

It's hard to study your photos because the enlarge on their side and squashed. Can you try redoing them for us to enjoy?
