Then you upgrade to a stereo. Then you get a receiver and separate speakers. How many steps, then, does it take to get to here?

Nice equipment and setup, but he really jumped the shark when he added the cable elevators.

That's one of the rooms Rives Audio did! It's featured in one of the brochures/articles they sent. Very impressive. I'm still thinking I'll save for an acoustical consultation/design from them. I don't have an unlimited budget, but I'd like to take it as far as I can when I do the home theater remodel. So yeah, I need to save up all of my vacation time so I can sell it back.

When they try to sell you wires and cables that cost more than a good bicycle, run the other way.

Yes Peter, but he appears to have an inadequate number of cable elevators to prevent an obvious droop which might in large part nullify the benefits of that equipment.

Oh, the humanity! I wonder if Thelonious Monk sounds better with the cable elevators? And those firehoses/power cables? I guess he has his own power plant on his property and doesn't use the "grid." Otherwise spending $$$ on just the last 6 feet would seem...

Beautiful room though. And some nice gear.
