Thanks Munster, the Krells are for the prodigy's and i'm using the BK for the Ascent's and the Theater i
 
Thanks Peter, two guys show up to deliver when they saw what they were dealing with they called for back up, they needed 5 guys to bring that baby in the house.
 
Ah, I'll bet that you are a bachelor :). $XXXXX worth of AV equipment, sitting on a plywood box. If you get married, your wife will "fix" that (both) :D
 
Yes it's true. single with no "saf" (spouse approuval factor). i'll dress it up someday.

Thank you Mr. X for nice comment. It wasn't easy. I have some new photos, i just got a Richard Gray 1200c. So i moved a few things around, in the rack system that is, and i'll post them soon. PS. say Hi to Seedracer, but i always like Mr. X he was so :cool:

The small lcd looks better up on top. Hows that UX-1, i've read some great reviews?
 
Your system is stellar. Bet you love those monos (I admit it, I'm hooked on the Krell fpb sound).

Regarding your plywood platform...I believe if you clad it with some 1" dark granite you could make everything tie in much better even with that huge tv there.

It brings sounds out i have not heard before. I was just listening to Neil Youngs Greatest Hits and the first track is just awsome! Oh man the sound, I just love those Prodigys!!

Thank you Gerren. The monos are great, I was thinking to upgrade to the 750's but i think they would have been overkill. I didn't think of granite as one of my options, i'm going to check on that. Thanks for the advice.

Chris, do you have any rear photos of the UX-1. I would like to see how you connected it, if possible. Thanks
