Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to the site Pat. Nice system. Your first photo is a bit blurry, though.. You can edit that later if you want.

Regards,

Tom.

Thank you all.

Indeed the Classe gear is quite nice looking. I think Classe Audio has achieved a beautiful object you want to display within your system. And the sound is great. Although SS the amp produce a warm sound that reminds the one of tubes. I must admit the combination of Classe and Ascent works wery well in my room.
