Very nice system,
Looks like you could use a center channel. :p

How do you like your PS Audio PD4.7?

Highlighted beautiful musical system...

Eric,

Your system looks fantastic... I like how your photos turned out, especially the back lighting of your SL3's, totally awesome, dude... :D
NEC makes a wonderful plasma TV, yours looks great, I like your stand too... :D

I am curious, what are your room dimentions? Also, what precentage do you listen to music and HT? Do you plan to purchase any other ML speakers someday? Can you discribe the sound of your Classe CA100 CP-35, with your SL3's?

Great looking set-up... :D

Cheers

-Robin

Very nice system, but where is the TT. Martin-Logan's w/o vinyl is just wrong IMO

Very, Very nice. I too like the back lighting affect. I miss my CAL stuff(sold/given to my son). My ears told me Classe' and ML were meant for each other. When $$$$ allow that might be my first upgrade, had a chance to pick-up a barely used CA-301 but missed out, oh well.

Again very nice, Happy Holidays!!!!

...and rear channels and sub and preprocessor and 3 more amps.... :D
The PD gives a more 3D sound, feels fuller and a bit more dynamics. It doesn't give me the cleaner sound feeling which was my expectation (don't know why). Though, I'm not sure the price is worth the 3D improvement.

Room is 12x18x9. I'm very particular about the speakers placement.

I'm one of the few pure 2 channel guys left in this world, the TV and DVD were added just because... everytime the thought of getting a surround system comes up, it would soon become saving for my dream - B&W 801D :eek: So no, probably not another ML, though I've no complaints about it's sound, love the soundstage and imaging.

Classe was the warmest solid state amps I could find for the budget. I've been test listening to the Audio Research VS110 and SP16L and it sounds very similar to my Classe combo as far as tonal balance goes. Not analytical yet can handle huge symphonies fairly well.

Someday I'll get another one. Still have my records from the 80s collecting dust.

A Musical image ML sound...

Erictrostatic,

It seems like you love your system just the way it is... ;) Good for you. :D
So do you listen to all kinds of music? Or do you listen to more jazz and blues?

Cheers

It's been a long while....
I can truly relax when listening to Mozart the great. Piano sonatas, the grand piano right there between the ML. Also like to recreate a little jazz club right behind the ML, double bass to the right, saxophone right there next to it, next is the piano and the drums are well back over there....

Nice setup! We have a lot of similar gear. I like the back lighting. I want to do something like that. I need to get some pics of my system and post. Any updates to your system since you posted last?
