The RP3's used to be my front...then I upgraded fronts and moved these to rear. Having very similar speakers front to rear made a HUGE difference. I have to say that it sounds amazing.

Hi everyone

Well, here's the lounge:

DSC05601.jpg

Due to the open plan shape of the room, I have the speakers in a semi-circular arrangement with the rears slightly behind the listening position (the other rear is out of the photo but directly opposite the one shown bottom right).

The sub is behind the chair on the left. I'd like to bring the sub out as it has a nice wood grain but it sounds best in the corner (unlike a Victorian child, it should be heard and not seen).

The blue and white striped cushion on the couch is the sweet spot.

Yes, it was very sunny when I took that photo just now.

Very very nice setup...that KEF center channel looks HUGE...

Thanks Clint Eastwood.

Yeah, that centre is a decent size. About 230mm high by about 300mm deep if memory serves. Big sound too. It can handle the bass like nothing I've heard elsewhere.

ATTENTION ALL!!

At the request of "Clint Eastwood" and other members, I have merged CE's 2015 Show us your gear thread into the original thread, and moved the whole thing to the "General Hardware" section in the QQ Main Forum. This can cover vintage and well as new technology hardware and systems.

I left redirects all over the place, so hopefully everyone finds this one. I also stickied it for posterity, because I could not find the original thread at all. vB at its best it seems! :mad:@:

Rustyandi, it sounds like you have found Nirvana, a lasting marriage that includes all your passions! Just one thing, shouldn't you be playing your vinyl?

Dang it, that $20 could have gone towards whatever Steven Wilson remix is released next! Oh well.

Back to the hardware: Are there any QQ'ers with Naim speakers that have some pics to post, or a comment or two on the sound? Plenty of reviews on the internets, I know, but I trust you guys over them.

I've never heard Naim speakers and am hesitant to pop into the local store for a listen in case they expect me to part with $62K for a pair of Ovator S-800's, or worse, that there's a night-and-day difference between them and me Kefs.
