Ooooh.... very clean and very svelte! Reminds me of my previous Vantages.

Are those in maple or natural cherry? By the looks of it, it looks to be more maple. Is it birds eye?

You should post pics of the cabinet up close... looks seksay! ;)

Those are maple, standard, not birds eye.

Birds eye or not, those look very nice especially coupled with that nice flooring you have going there!

More pics of the Vantages closeup please! Wanna see the veneer on that cabinet. ;)

Cool Vantage System...

Axel,

:D Welcome to the ML Club!
Wow! your Vantages look way cool... :D They even match you wonderful hardwood flooring. :) Your system presents very well. Do you have a equally wonderful record collection as well? If so, may I inquire as to what kind of music you prefer to listen to the most? I am curious if you have given any thought to possible listening room treatments?

Fantastic Vantage system Axel... :D

I'm so glad, now I have a new place to visit when I'm in Isreal. It'll bring me a little bit of home while on vacation.

Hi Robin !
Thanks ! you made me blush ;) ...
I listen to mostly classical music (my favorite instrument is the piano - so I have a large collection of classical piano recordings), I also listen to some jazz and classic rock.
Regarding room treatments, well, I'm currently very happy with the way my system sounds - so I see no need for treatments, at least in the near future...

Thanks again !
Axel.

I've just rediscovered my vinyl collection, I find myself flipping side after side and listening non-stop...
You should try it ;) .

Joey,
There are a few of us who enjoy vinyl. You better be careful or you will get bit by that bug. :eek: I am sure there are tons of great used blues and jazz albums in Chi Town.
:D:D

Jeff, You are oh so correct, during my lunch with Tim (MITT) last week in Denver we both agreed on the fun of finding hidden treasures in used record shops. I recently came across a 40 year old record, Gershwin - Rhapsod in Blue, performed by Oscar Levant on piano along with Eugene Ormandy and the Phila Orchestra. Cost one dollar, it cleaned up and sounds great !!

I just picked up a Charlie Parker greatest hits album. It is a 2 disc set for I think $5.99. It is recording from the late 40's and early 50's with some guy on trumpet named Miles Davis. :D

I think we may have to start a mini thread on vinyl and how to clean them. :D

Jeff :cool:

Have it also. I believe it's mono. Sound is fair, but a historic document it is!

Vinyl rules!

I just noticed... your Vantage panels are still so clean. Not sure if it's the camera and the flash settings, but man... I wish my Summits were still that clean. I noticed that after a while, black bars appear across the panel with intermittent clear bars between the dark ones.

Do you clean your panels regularly?

They're pretty much brand new, I've vacuumed them once after taking them out of their original packages.
Could you send an image of this phenomenon ?

Thanks,
Axel.
