Live in a house. 2 systems in basement - tubes and SS. Now if only I could figure out this sideways image issue on my BlackBerry...


Just lie down of the couch and it will all work out!

J/K I have no idea how to rotate images on a Blackberry, but we get the idea.

House, bedroom & basement, 3 systems. One of two basement systems is a share stereo + HT system - the 2 channels system is basically the front channels amplification of the HT by using the HT by-pass input on my preamp. The other basement system is pure 2 channels. Both basement systems have tubes to keep me warm in the cold winter :lol: I also have a LINN all-in-one CD receiver in my bedroom.

True and a shame to see anything like that happen.

I'm just relieved that it was only the pic upload and not that my house had fallen over on its side... :lol:

Live in a house.

I have 3 systems in 3 different rooms.

Main 2 channel is in it's own sitting area on the main floor I call the "library", it's joined with the dining room.
2.0 channel HT in the family room (WAF means only 2 standmounts are allowed)
5.1 channel HT in the basement, this is the real Home Theater

Live in a house.

The HT system - which is also great for 2 channel listening - is in our living room (which is connected to our dining room).

2 channel system is in converted bedroom on 2nd floor which I use as an office / listening room.

I know this thread was started long ago but now that it has been revived, I will add mine to the list.

I live in a detached house so I can blast my 2 channel system at 2:00 am in the morning with no worries from neighbours. :mrgreen:

It resides in the front room, nicknamed the music room by my wife.

I have a two channel system connected up to the TV (no HT set up exactly) so that the programs I watch don't come out of those horrible tinny speakers that flat screen TV's use today.
