7. I used to work for Tweeter and always loved the Logans, but could never afford them. When the Ascents went on clearance, I was able to pick up a pair. That was in August of 2005. I eventually added Frescos, Montage, Mosaics, Motif, and the Descent i. I've downgraded to a 5.1 setup for now, leaving me with what you see. Recently I have been changing gear around instead of speakers.

Fantastic System...

Mark,

Welcome to the ML Club!
Great looking audio system. :D What percentage do you enjoy HT films vs. music listening? I was wondering what kind of Sunfire Cinema ~ Seven you own the 200 watt or the 400 watt? As I've heard great things about both. Also I noticed in the photo of your system their is a black box on the floor with white wires coming from it, is that an Xbox 360?

I think your future plans of acquiring Fresco's and Descent are excellent... :D

Beautiful system as it is.... :D

It is good to have you here.

I listen to about half movies and half music right now. Plenty of music while I'm on the computer, but that's not serious listening. I'm running the Cinema 200-7. I just picked it up a few weeks ago, but has been a great performer so far, especially biamping the ascents. Thats actually a PS2 at the bottom of the screen, just hooked up temporarily. It is a small room, so I can't get everything completely in the shot. When I get my own place, I will have a larger room that will open up the sound quite a bit. On the other hand, when the bass hits in a movie clip or a song peaks, it fills the room quite nicely. Thanks for the comments guys.
