    Are those DIY speaker stands?

    Nope. They are Resonant Woods platform stands. I’ve got two pairs of stands from Brooks and he does beautiful work.

    Excellent, thank you! And they're within driving distance for me too!

    Very nice set up. I have the same VPI Classic 1, but I don’t have the periphery ring. How big of an impact does it have on the overall sound?

    Thanks! My perception is the ring adds depth and weight/ gravitas to the sound, which are qualities I love. I find I always use it. Hemmed and hawed about getting one for years given the price, but I’m happy with it. Also certainly helps out with warps!

    Are the four headphones one for each system or per style of music?

    lol all of the above (maybe time to join a support group?). I do have headphone amps in all my systems and enjoy different headphone amp/ combos depending on mood and genre from time to time. Headphones were my gateway into the hobby, but I mostly only listen to them these days when the house is asleep or I need to focus on a work project and want to eliminate distractions.

    Still, you seem a bit like me, speakers first, room second.

    If I can make them fit, then somehow I will.

    A stereo salesman once said something similar to me.

    Outstanding!

    I have always been wanting a pair of Concert Grands, not that I have any where to put them either.

    That usually does not fail to deter me in my quest for vintage speakers.

    Since I am familiar with the K-Horns, I would be curious to how you would compare them?

    I have never heard nor seen Concert Grands in person, but they do look yummy!

    You belong here, both are vintage and you did notice the speakers after all. :)

    It's all good!

    The khorns are actually a better fit for the room. I found the tweeter arrays on the CG's very beamy unlike the horns on the K's. Plus the CG's take up a bit more space in already cramped room. Here's a pic of them along with a pair of Mcintosh ml1C's and a pair of pre lawsuit JBL subs which they absolutely dwarf. I had 4 ML1C's in that room for a while and they were probably the best fitment for the room but alas.....I just can't keep them all

    Hi it looks lovely and I don't see this clutter of which you speak. Also can you detail your system for us?

    Thanks for the compliment. Dark picture can't make any components out, Was the only picture I had on my phone. This is a system I put together when I decided to pull my old vinyl and cassette tapes out of storage. I've upgraded the Amp to the Nad recently and looking at changing my speakers next.
    Amp- Nad C 328
    Tape deck- Nad 613
    TT- Audio Technica lp120
    Speakers- Kef Q100
    Sony mini disc
    I'll get a better picture up soon.

    With the backlighting, try focusing on the equipment with your camera, so the lighting gets adjusted and we can see more of it ;).

    Not yet, I only have an original RCA pressing.

    My Lp isn’t in great condition, but my Grado MC+ mono cartridge suppresses 90% of the noise.
