    Very nice, Roberto. I find your guitar room treatments interesting. Does the system sound different if you swap guitars?

    Hola Bernard, regarding my guitars, I had them tuned in different notes. By sympathetic resonance, the music makes them to sing along, and yes, I think this is a nice tweak, because there are notes that still sing in the room, naturally. I am glad you liked!.

    MPS, those are Dark Cherry. They look awesome! but, what I do like most, is their quality sound! I do know that there are a lot of great electronic gear that make them to sing better or nicer. But I am very happy with it.

    Roberto my friend - so good to see your system up here after so long. Very tasteful and purposeful. Please, if you don't mind, I'd like to see more pictures!

    Tim, my room is very small, but I had managed to adjust the volume level of all speakers in such way that you almost listen the rears...just for a little add to the sound when you are listening to the music. For HT is a different set up. For stereo, only front speakers of course.

    Ha ha, I understand. If you want to make the wife happy, I suggest taking the CDs, SACDs, etc. out of the plastic jewel boxes and organize them into book type CD cases. They hold up to 256 CDs per case (4"x12"x10") and will free up 90% - 95% of the space you are currently using to store your media.

    Now I can get rid of them. I have being storage them in my hard discs. Now, I do not loose time searching for a cd...just got any music right away, thanks to Itunes and Audirvana. The sound is very good... or perhaps, I am not an audiophile any more...just enjoying the wonderful musician(s) playing the music for me! Happy listening!

    Roberto,
    IT looks great and I am sure it sounds wonderful. I know it must be very natural and very revealing.

    Best of luck

    Jeff
