Thanks...the displays turntable image on the LED TV is from the Youtube Audiophile hi-res music site. I was listening to it when I took the photo and thought it looks good with the decor.

Love it, very clean look. The turntable image on screen is the perfect place for the self destructing obsolete format :-)

Ha, that's cool, I was attempting some humor about the virtual turntable, but, you were in fact listening to one.

I thought my system might provide a little amusement since most of it is so old:
1962 Denon DL-103 cartridge, new, replacing another
1974 Ariston RD11 turntable, not shown
1976 Technics SL1100 turntable
1978 Shure V15IV cartridge, not shown
1978 Threshold Cas400A not shown because it draws between 250 and 500 walls at idle, though it will probably be pressed into service soon because the other slave is beginning to hum
1979 Yamaha CT610 II tuner
1980 PSB Subwoofers, pair, original with passive crossovers
1982 Mission 774 tonearm, not shown
1983 Carver M1.0 slave, beginning to hum 
1984 (?) Yamaha CX800U preamp
1989 Denon DRM-500 cassette deck, yard sale find, free, one of many cassette decks
2002 Energy C3 speakers
2018 Yamaha BD-A1060 DVD/CD player, recently bought new since Oppo stopped making their players
It sounds just fine, about 20 Hz up

Thanks!

I forgot to mention 3 pairs of PSB Avantes, one pair of which I gave to a friend, and 2 pairs of Paradigm 3SE Minis, one pair of which I gave to a daughter, various receivers, etc, etc.

The picture of a speaker you posted looks like a KEF LS50. You might be interested in looking at its family of frequency response curves:

While I've never heard them, They should sound pretty good.
