Thank You to everyone who’s replied so far!  I’ll update my description as soon as I have some time on my hands 😀.

    • GIK Acoustics 244 Panels x 6, Monster Bass Traps x 3
    Room Treatments from GIK! Room treatments are half the battle.  If you are trying to achieve good sound, you absolutely must have a good sounding room.  Whether it’s damped with GIK panels or books, vinyl records and plush heavy furniture, much of what you hear or don’t hear can be attributed to your rooms response.
    • Onix Audio Stereo Rack
    I actually quite like this rack.  I have 2 of them so I can change in and out different heights and configurations.  The rack is pretty modular in the way it screws together.  I filled all the legs with play sand.  The rack is pretty heavy and sturdy!
    • Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit
    Great sounding Dac!  Very detailed and just really nice sounding for my musical tastes (which lean towards a lot of electronic music).  Perhaps not the most musical dac but I enjoy it quite a bit.  I also think it’s a bargain for what you can get them for on the pre owned market.

    I took the cover off and put dynamat everywhere on the inside.  It was a pita to get the lights realigned on the front.   I don’t recommend ever trying to pop the cover on a schiit dac unless you are a gluten for punishment.  You’ll need emotional support when it comes to getting those led’s through the holes again.
    • OPPO Bdp-93
    Oppo BDP-93 for spinning discs and the occasional blue ray!  This unit has the upgraded Nu Force edition board and I applied dynamat everywhere in the inside.

    Not exactly the quickest response / load times and it won’t play hd videos so there are things limiting about it.  
    • Salk Sound Veracity HT2 TL
    I recently acquired these speakers locally.  I’ve been wanting to move from stand mounted speakers to a larger floor standing speaker for awhile now. When I moved into a place where I can play my music as loud as I want, whenever I want, I started really looking. My Fritz Carreras sound so good, especially eq’d, that they beat out everything I put up against them.  When I saw these Salks locally, I pounced on them and am glad I did.  They sound absolutely incredible and are exactly the move I was trying to make.  

    I’d say the strengths of the Salks are a very flat response, great bass response, smooth delicate highs, great soundstage depth and very dynamic.  When I used an eq, I could get the Carreras to do 90% of what the Salks do, which is quite impressive for a speaker 1/3 of size and $1500 less expensive. 

    All in all, I am very pleased with the sound quality, build quality and appearance of the Salks.  
    • Belles Aria Integrated
    75 muscular watts!  I really really like this integrated amp.  It has great modulation on the volume control from the remote which I like.  The openess of the sound along with the bass control are really nice.  I believe I read in the manual that the damping factor was relatively high so that may explain the exceptional bass response 
    from only 75 watts.  I imagine that the new Aria Integrated amp with 125 watts and balanced inputs is a great sounding amp.

The setup is looking pretty near @b_limo. You have come quite a long way. But come on man, you are just keeping us hanging. Please provide some details on the components, stand, room treatments, etc. What happened to the Fritz?
Congratulations on setting this system up. Enjoy!


This is my main system now!  New room, new speakers. Absolutely in love with the sound I have currently!


Very nice! Is this your main system now? I thought I saw Fritz in another room. These are gorgeous!


Those Salk's are just gorgeous @b_limo !
