    Comments: I've wanted a pair ML's since I heard them at CES in 1990. I finally got around to finishing a dedicated listen room in 2008. This system was put together from November 2008 through current. Room treatments have really helped dial in the sound. This room is 10 ft wide and 18 feet long with 1 inch drywall all around. Carpet over a concrete floor.

    Great system - envy your dedicated room! If only.........one day!

    That's some pretty heavy treatment you've got there too - I assume it was a fairly lively room?

    Bah! There are those of us who think that "exquisite pure digital setup" is oxymoronic! Let the vinylphile corruption begin... :-)

    Nice room. I'm so sure my wife would allow me to dedicate one of the rooms in the house for my listening room. I wonder would I be able to keep the high heel up my ass in the divorce settlement.

    just remember it's always easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    Thanks guys for the kind comments!

    Fish- the bass has been the hardest to dial in. The A.R.O. that comes with the JL does a pretty good job of smoothing out the response. I'm happy with my the bass response now. The 4 inch panels behind my speakers helped as well.

    A couple more pics of my other equipment:

    Yes Adam, the room was not listenable until I started with the panels, the more I added the better it sounded.
