very nice.

are those martin logan speakers?

Looks like PMC's below what with the port at the bottom and some other speaker on top. Does look very much like ML large grill concept though:D

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. ChristovTN yes, as an accomplished Drummer & Bassist and avid music listener it is a massive part of my life :)

dean999 & Darrenraymond, They are Kingsound Queen I's from Kings Audio, the crossover point is listed wrong on the WS it is actually 600Hz fwiw:-

This version has been superceded by the Queen II, they retailed at a tad under £2K.... and worth every penny from the enjoyment I get from them. Despite being a big speaker they have not been at all fussy with room placement, which is a bonus. If you are serious about your music you need to have a listen!

Excellent, I'm of the same musical persuasion (however, just without my beloved drum kit :() - again, great setup.

i love the presence of a linux computer :D

It forms the heart and soul of my stereo replay. I use Rhythmbox via ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) on an old but good laptop as a dedicated music server. The audio codecs just seem so much better than windoze. This streams my music to a Marantz SR6004 via A2DP Bluetooth. The quality is exceptional tbh, bettering a Behringer UCA222 24/48 dac I have at my disposal with either analogue or optical inputs.

The monitor you see in the picture is a 22" touch screen that works really well, and gives a modern `Jukebox' feel, being able to select music at your fingertips.

ChristovTN: Get yourself a decent electronic kit mate, hardly takes up any space. I use an alesis DM5 Pro kit and find it an excellent alternative to a real kit tbh. :smashin:

All the computers i own run linux, my servers, my laptop and my desktop.

Laptop and desktop run Debian, same for my fileserver.

My Linux gateway runs a hardened linux distro called smoothwall.

Old thread I know, but would like to know if you kept with this setup. Seems very different to advice on here - running a pair of centres and rear surrounds above and quite close.
