Nice setups all around.  Matt,  did you build the shelves yourself?   

here is the latest configuration I am using (on the uncluttered side of the room)
Oooh, those Quads are pretty. :-*

Yep, I built the rack.  It's a Flexy DIY style rack.  Super strong and stable.

Lots of Hereseys in our small circle of friends.   Somebody should have let us all know how bad they suck.    >:D

I may be the only one who didn't care for them. Mark was nice enough to lend me a pair of Forte's, or was it KG4, and then his Heresy's. I loved the efficiency of them with a low power tube amp, but they were just way too bright and forward for my liking. I do believe they were the most capable speaker I've heard with my tube amp to get the highest possible volume level with no break up or distortion. My ears prefer a more "brown", mellow, laid back sound.

I never had Fortes or KG4s.   I had a pair of something that I can't remember the brand or model number, but it was a "Designed by Klipsch" and made elsewhere black tower with two tens and two horns (IIRC).   It may have been those.

I forgot about loaning you the Hereseys but now that you mention in I do remember.   I wonder if that was before or after the recap.   I've done a few sets of speakers but these had the most dramatic improvement from the work.

They are also very room dependent.   Elijah (I think it was Elijah, could have been Tom, again, my mind LOL) marveled at how much better mine sounded than his.   I told him it's the room, not the speaker.

I would love to try some Fortes in my gameroom and upgrade my originals to Heresy III.

You lent me the Heresy's before the recap.
