Nice setup you have there Mark. Very clean look to it. Love the look of those tube amps integrated into the system. Classy!

Congrats and job well done.

Very nice, do you switch back and forth between them and go with the set of speakers that sounds the best for that particular music selection?

Wasn't it brought up that the speakers should be set up the same on both sides, RBH AXIOM center stand RBH AXIOM so as to eliminate the narrowing of the front soundstage by having one set of speakers closer together?

Loc: It's all about the location.
That's my thinking Jay(I do that occasionally). That way, the speakers are a similar distance apart.

Hi Jakewash and everyone!!! Thanks for the kind words. Currently attempting to make "black and tans" with the misses. Not successful but that depends on your definition of successful. Nonetheless feeling comfortably numb. Sorry, Adult ADHD kicked in.... I kinda go with the flow, whatever sounds good (not a very good audiophile am I...). Right now everything is sounding really good. Both systems put me in the front row with great imaging. Both systems are truly transparent. On another subject, I am very surprised that the PrimaLuna System is not as "tubey" as I had first assumed (let's not go with the "if you assume, you make an...") With the chinese KT88's handling the power output on the PL 6 monoblocs, I have found that the PrimaLuna's are very articulate. I have not noticed any roll off in the treble,the mids have great definition and the Bass is very tight. Who'd da thunk :). With the emotiva, regardless of speaker (yes I have run countless combinations.....) the system is just a monster!!!!! You like bass slam you get bass slam. You like SPL, you get SPL. My favorite tune (along with the neighborhood, I think) is Phil Collins 'In The Air Tonight" with the volume turned to +infinity dB...that one section with the drums....priceless!!

That is some serious audio gear Mark. How do you like ERC-1?

Hey TonyMC, I'm MTAK on the EMOTIVA Forum (but you knew that already). Hope your enjoying the Memorial and listening to some great tunes on those M60's (very nice BTW). Detailed, Accurate, and Revealing ("I'm just play'n what yer feed'n me sir") If that is what you like, then you cannot go wrong. Like I posted earlier, you are in the front center row and you will hear everything as it was intended. Plus if you have any HD CD's, they will shine.
