Nice! One cool thing that I noted is the attention and effort put into the cable organization dept. It says a lot about what is or is not going on there when the spaces in and around your gear do not look like a giant pot of spaghetti gone horribly wrong.... welcome aboard!

Actually, I believe the picture he posted is of the Theil's. The DCM KX 12 is a pretty "ordinary" looking box-type speaker--black wood with black grill cloth.

Theil speakers, OTO, have that unique sloping front, and tend to have BEAUTIFUL natural wood veneer finishes on their cabinets.

Great-looking system, and I agree with Treitz--you have VERY clean cabling. It's good to see a rig where the wiring doesn't look like somebody spilled a box of snakes behind the rack... ;)

Thanks for all the nice comments on my system.

Pictured are the Thiel speakers. They are very nice though I could use a larger amp for them. The TFM 25 runs the well but I would like to put a TFM 45 or 55 on them or a Sunfire 300. They like lots of power.

I do have plans on replacing my DCM's. They are good party speakers. Not sure yet what I want. I am thinking of a set of AL III or Definitive Technology BP20's or 30's.

Right now I have a TFM 25. I am going to use some of my refund money to get a TFM 55 repaired. I got the 55 with the deal but when it powers on it has a 60 hz hum. No lights and no click so it does need some attention.

I think I will do what TNRabbit suggested and have the 55 on the ribbon and the 25 on the sub.

Actually the fish seem to like the music. They look to be more active when I have the system fired up.

Here is a pic of what I have attached to the ALIII
