Last June we moved to a new home in West Linn, Oregon.  In our previous house I had two fairly good size listening rooms, one had the Ascendo/Joule system (14x16 bedroom) and a (15x17 bonus room) for the MBL system.  In our new home I have a large 16x26 bonus room which now houses both systems.  I have one system on one end and the other system on the other end of the room.  My listening position is around the center of the room so all I have to do is swing the chair around to listen to one system or the other.


Dear lord I can only imagine how great your first system is!


MBLis my favorite!  Great choice, but you already know that 😁
