Just finished with a quick sound check, system is sounding great, one courious thing. Taking a sound level reading in the usual listening area, I have gained a 10 - 14 db increase, with the same volume control setting as before, not sure if this is becaue of the seperate amps, changing to balanced cables or what. To tired to figure out why as of right now. Have the triggers all working, so when the system is powered down, the amps shut down in sequence, kinda of cool hearing the relays click as they shut down. Yes, a simple thing, but need to take what I get at this time.
Took a few quick pictures of the days progress.

Halo boxes, need to find some place to store them soon,


Sony mega changers removed to make room for amps


Three new A 21s


A 21s out of the box.


A 21s in their new home.

Looking mighty good.The A 21s are more than likely more sensitive to the in coming voltage from the prepro.How is the heat situation going for ya ?

Have only done a quick 2 hour test, listening area at 102 -107 db, all four amps running cool on tops, heat sinks just warm, looks like having seperates will be worth while for sure.

You gotta love the guy for getting his priorities straight. I mean, how many months have we seen that unfinished fireplace now?????

Just ribbing you, Dennis. Congrats, man! It looks amazing. If your priorities change again, I would be more than happy to "hold" those Halo's nice and safe for you!!

Geez, seems people are around tonight, thanks for the compliments, much appreciated.

Decided to watch League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, considering the speakers/sub are not adjusted/tweaked, the PLIIX made the 7.1 sound rather good. The new kids are still running cool, so see no problems so far. Took a couple of quick pics, room was total darkness, first the system with the flash, second no flash and only the system lights on. At the bottom of that picture, you will see the lights being reflected on the floor. Each amp has the blue 'Halo' around the power button, in the top center the red 'P' logo, which is a status light, when the amp is OFF (light dimmed) ON ( full brightness) BLINK ( problem), the two blue led lights for channel status.

Ya, meter at those settings, and becasue of the size of the listening area and great speakers <g> its not as loud as it may seem, but loud enough you can't talk to a person next to you and hear each other. lol Just a bit louder than my usual listening range, but for testing, makes the amps do a bit of work.
