I think I've seen those before. My brother (adamp88) showed me a pic of some huge monstrosity of a cable that had highly reflective metallic-ish braided shielding on it. It could just be the flash reflecting off it.

Sushi your wallpaper is ready!

I've made two...one with a pair of M60's included, one without.

or

I think the one with the M60's seems a little too crowded...


Curtis...yours is next.

Sushi,

spiffnme seems to be taking his sweet time making your requested pic ( ), so I decided to give it a shot. It's a widescreen edition.

Click here to see it.

(I couldn't find any suitable pictures of speakers, so I made the M22s from scratch. I used the sorrel pear swatch from the Axiom website, and some good close-up pics of the drivers from a review of the M80tis I found.

I think I like Photoshop almost as much as I like this forum. Thanks for the idea spiff!

(To see how I did it, right-click and save the photoshop file here.)

Yeah, but those were just the power cables, Peter. These look like they're connected to the speakers themselves. Here's a picture of the Acoustic Zen Gargantua power cord. It's over an inch think and just a mere $1500 for a 6 footer.



edit: after a little searching, it looks like Acoustic Zen makes a speaker cable that's basically the same idea as the Gargantua, so it's very possible those speaker cables are the Acoustic Zen Holograms, which will only set you back $950 for an 8ft run.

Uh, boys, Sushi doesn't have M22s or M60s. He's got Hales fronts. Dur.... ;-)

Yes Ken, but now sushi realizes how good they'd look with his 45TX.

He doesn't have a 55txi either, but that's the picture he supplied.

I think the point was an Axiom/Elite wallpaper, not necessarily a "Sushi's System" wallpaper.

Thanks Craig and Peter! I didn't know Peter was a DIY speaker builder. Your opuses are safely in my wallpaper folder alternately showing on the desktop, together with the Honda S2000 calendar.

Adam, so what's the surface material on those Zen wires? How come they are so uniformly bright?
