I tried to “stitch” together this photo so you could see how I’ve used the room with the Logans. Didn’t do a very good job with the photo, but you get the picture.
I have wanted to post my system for some time. The logans were purchased new in 2000.
Outside of the Logans, I have:
A. The Sanyo digital projector which we use for all TV/DVD watching. When I don’t want to run it (bulbs are very expensive) I have that little ugly white TV running just to keep up with the news.
B. I have built the M&K V-75 MK-II subwoofer into the fireplace cavity where “wood” used to be stored. Did that after we converted the fireplace to natural gas.
C. My diapole surrounds on the sides are called “Balconys” and were made by MB Quart
The center channel speaker is a Polk Audio CLS-350. It is not made anymore, but the tweeter is very fast, so its not a bad match to the logans.
The rest of my electronics are:
Yamaha RX-V995 digital receiver 240 watts 2ohms
Mitsubishi HS-U760 SVHS deck
Yamaha DVD-S796 dvd player
Denon DRM-740 3 head cassette deck
Monster Cable Interconnects
Monster Cable Speaker leads for biwiring
Phillips Pronto Remote Control System
X-10 lighting controllers
I don’t like wires laying around, so I’ve pulled wires through the attic (on a slab) for all my wires. The projector was the hardest to do, because it used a SVHS cable. I made the SVHS cable out of a pair of RG6 cables. The subwoofer run uses RG6, too.
I have two can lights behind the logans on a dimmer. (See post in Tweaks section.)
I still really like the sound of my system. I vaccum the panels quite a bit, for maintenance. A bit scared to do the washing, but I might one of these days.
My parents live close to Lawrence, KS, so when visiting them once, I toured the Martin Logan plant. Was a wonderful opportunity and experience.
