Main System: Finally took the time to hang some pictures and finish the HT room up a bit. I also played with the sub placement and found that the Velo sounds MUCH, MUCH better where the Polk was, in fact I have stopped using the Polk at all. Also took some pictures of system 2 & 3. \r\n\r\nAfter playing with multiple preamps & system configs, I have settled in on using the Lexicon for Stereo as well as HT. I am using the Velo in stereo also, in it's new location it fills in the bass perfectly and sounds fantastic. The room is a bit boxy and was eating up the bass from the M3's. But I have never been more happy and content with an arrangement. I usually spend more time tweeking the system than listening, but I am finally just listening with no desire to tweak any more. And let me just say WOW, I am speechless while listening to it. :) The Carver preamp is there for the TT and the EQ was an experiment, but I am not using it and will be removing it.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSystem #2 is in the living room, A surprisingly good sounding little system. The Sony ES & separate DAC, coupled with the Athena S2's really sound nice together.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSystem #3 (so to speak) is basically just a lot of leftover stuff in my bedroom. However the Yamaha RX-V995 is a very nice receiver and running the Athena S1's, NHT VS 1.2 center (or the BIC V52 center I just found at goodwill for $10) sounds good. The onkyo Sub I also found for $10 at goodwill and is a nice little 8" Sub. I think I will be putting the Polk into the br system and maybe running some wire for surround spks.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe CW's in the picture aren't being used (other than to hold up the TV) at the moment. I do have them hooked up to a Yamaha RX-V596 I just got for free to test the receiver.
