    @thyname, I hear you on the move to a different speaker. There are so many darn good choices and life is too short to stick around with one brand of speakers. It took me 15 years to break the B&W spell :-)  And having T+A Integrated around is a huge help, the PA 3100 HV is capable of driving most speakers out there. Enjoy!

    Thanks @lalitk ! it was about time for me to change speakers around. I had the chance to demo before purchase. My pair was brand new sealed, so there is still break-in required.

     @thyname, Congratulations for new speaker/subwoofer. I have not heard of S7t’s but now I’m intrigued:-)

    Hello fellow audiophile-great system-do you still have msb discreet dad?
    I just got one here to demo and compare to my Mac 12000 integrated built in dac and my aesthetix Pandora eclipse-so far digging it-what were your thoughts on it over the long term on it?

    cheers-
    Gary

    Thank you. Mostly yes. Except for the Everest which will remain with Omega XC

    A beautiful room and system. Interesting combination with Esoteric player/transport and T+A integrated amp.

    Happy Listening!

    Thanks for sharing photos of your system, which looks bloody marvelous.
    I love the wood (Mapleshade eh?) mixed in with classy hi tech lines of your electronics. Looks like a sharp setup. Enjoy the music!

    Hi Tom! Yes. MSB DAC and Innuos Statement are gone. Keeping it simple, and using the new Esoteric N-01XD DAC, which has a great streamer built in. I am happy with results. I had a chance to compare side by side before the change, at my home.

    Hey its Tom in Reston. So did you ditch the MSB dac for the Esoteric dac now? Are you still using you Innuos?
    Everything looks great!

    Thanks Rick, I appreciate the nice words.

    My room is certainly not optimal. I wish I had a dedicated listening room. What you don't see in the pictures is the other portion of it (it's a basement), L-shaped, with the other side being my modest HT with two 65" screens for watching (mostly sports, but shows and movies too). Chair is certainly nothing to brag about, no name chair bought from a local furniture shop, I belie about $300-$400.

    Very very nice room room and terrific system.  To say I don't look at folks' systems much is an understatement, but I am glad I looked at yours.  It gives me an advance look at what my room can be like once I get to making it nice.  My room is a rectangle like yours (mine 10w, 18L, 9H) and I even have the same chair (looks like a Ekornes, stressless).  I've always wished I had an add'l 2-3 feet width like yours.  But I am very thankful to have a dedicated room that sounds great.

    Hi @thieliste 

    I sure will. Should arrive here next month.

    I think I saw somewhere on another forum you are doing a shootout between the 3100 HV and other Integrated Amps

    @thyname let us know when you get the PA 3100 HV, this one is on my radar for my new rig but i have other options like the CH Precion I1 or Vitus SIA-030.

    Hi friend!
    you put down one of my preferred, simplest top notch sounding system of my dreams! Your T+A is an incredible well built, good sounding piece of art, I had the opportunity to listen to them quite often and I felt in love with this wonderful german brand.
    My best compliments mate!
