Eric's post on another pipe forum had me checking out his BIC speakers. I currently have a set of Boston Accoustics Sub-Sat 6's, which work well for movies and I keep them hidden in the TV center. That doesn't work so well for 2-channel music, so I just bought a pair of BIC DV84's (a little cheaper than Eric's PL-76's). I just installed them this evening. I had to run one speaker wire lead into the basement, than up to get around the fireplace. I'm listening to some Pink Floyd now (remastered Dark Side) and some Jeff Beck "Guitar Shop". Wow, these things rock and they didn't break the bank. I wish I'd have bought some towers 10 years ago...

The wife is out of town, hopefully she is OK with the look in the family room...

Most of my stereo is in storage since moving into another house last December. I am going to finally part with one of my 2 pairs of Clements RT-7 speakers shown on each side of the 8 ft long subwoofer. I have since put new foam wrap around grills on them to complete the restoration. If end up keeping them I'll just stack them so that they will be 8ft tall but only be 11" wide.

And now I'm enjoying a set of Audioquest Nighthawk headphones that my son is loaning me:

I asked my wife "can I get an 8" long subwoofer?". She said "no".......

I don't ask my wife about stereos, I just show her drawings and build the things, otherwise she would want those little Bose cubes that sound like crap.

She knows music is my passion in life.

These were the set of 8 ft tall speakers I built

Bedroom tube headphone amp is incredible.  Accurate, tight, fantastic highs & lows (no tone adjustments, none are needed), and still a nice 'Tube' sound to smooth out cd's.

Living room setup is older-school (mid 80's, early 90's).
My receiver was made just before Pioneer went all plastic.  That Pionner Elite receiver has a very large actual transformer and massive heatsinks inside.  Back when they still built them by the pound, and the last of the 'still really good sounding' era for them.

The speakers are probably the best that Rat Shack ever sold, the Mach One's. Gotta love a pair of old school 15" woofers in the living room, along with 4" x 15" Mid-Horns they contain.  Cool
