    The room looks awesome now, Tom. Love the new color. And my, aren't those Summits sharp! That chrome trim goes so well with the Pass Labs amp.

    Looks awesome Tom! I bet it sounds that way too. Let us know how you like the Summits compared to your Requests.
    Move that audio rack out from between those speakers and hear what you may be missing!!!!

    Tom, lookin' good! I like your faux painted walls, looks just like what we did. Your dark ceiling is also nice. Is that real wood, or some kind of synthetic treatment?

    Also, I hadn't looked over your component list lately. I hope you're not using the Monster conditioner with your Pass amp. If so, I strongly suggest trying the amp without the Monster, just to see if it makes a difference. I used a Monster 3500 conditioner in my setup for over a year, before finding out it was choking my power amp. I've since relegated it to pure video use (where it works fine).

    Looking forward to hearing your impressions of the Summits!

    Wow Tom! Those Summits look awesome in your room. Also everything from the new wall color, new carpeting, to those gorgeous new Summits looks amazing! You have now inspired me to re-paint my HT room. Not sure what color yet, but I do know that it won't be any variation of white.

    Congrats on the new speakers and the whole new look!

    added some new photos, including a "history" photo.. It's interesting to see my system change over the years.

    Tom, the history photo's are great. Really fun to see how the system has evolved. What's really shocking is how truely gawd awful that pink room was. Much, much nicer now!

    Default Moved the amp

    I got my 3 meter interconnects in the mail this week, so this morning I moved the amp into the left corner. Of course now my power cable for the amp won't reach, so I got it plugged into an extension cord (for now).

    This allowed me to move the left speaker a little more to the left and this sounds a little better to my ears.

    Still have to put my fake ficas behind the right speaker and my other plants behind the left one....

    also.. got some "anti-jumpers" and put them on the Summits... not sure I can tell any difference.

    got my plants moved back into the room and updated my main photo.. Still wondering if moving the rack over to the left side of the room and moving the left Summit to the right a little more would be better..

    The room is much better with all your effort, very relaxed looking.

    Your system has come along way this year I'm sure it sounds wonderful.

    Until I looked at the picture progression again I forgot about the pink walls. Not that there is anything wrong with pink walls. I painted our kitchen pink, well mauve actually, but many people called it pink. You either love it or leave the room.

    It is a little difficult to tell from the photo but it doesn't look like the couch will interfere with the left speaker much. You could temporarily slide the couch down the wall away from the speaker to see the affect but I would guess it will not be a huge change.

    Ever since acquiring Joey's Summits you have been on a roll. What's next or have you exorcised the Joeyitis out of them?

    I'd love to ditch my Denon receiver and get a proper HT processor (ie Theta Casablanca 3) but I don't think it'll happen until after the economy rebounds...
