    Gorgeous setup! And welcome to the BSS (Bubinga Summits Society)! I bet they sound superb with your C-J and Pass gear! Did you really drill holes in your floor for running wires?

    Yes I did but have a way of patching so it will look OK once I move.

    The Pyramid item is a candle holder with a mirror in back.

    Actually, it's a sound tuning device mechanism.

    Looks nice at night when listening in the dark.

    Dave, I posted a picture of a "partial" view out my front window.

    Made by Marigo ?

    BTW (and I'm not pulling your chain here) I thought you would need more dots than I see on the windows, specifically in the middle.

    Gordon! How could you? You were one of the last holdouts who hadn't posted his system. Now the pressure is really on.

    By the way, your system and your view looks as magnificent as always. And I know from experience that the Cary-CJ-Pass-Summit combination sounds wonderful. Although, I do think you could do CLX's in your place with no problem. Perhaps your next upgrade?

    Yes Rich,

    Time to pony up to the saddle. No more excuses Amigo.

    And to all who have posted such kind remarks, a big THANK YOU. Pictures are fairly indicative of all the natural light I get in my living room because of the windows.

    Bernard, if you look at the bottom of the window in the first picture, you'll see the additional ATS panels I attached to the windows. Total of four plus five more below and to the sides of the window.

    Best,

    Gordon

    Man that is a beautiful set up. I love the wide plank floor. The view is to die for. Why did I stay in MI. Love the room.

    Very Nice Gordon.
