As mentioned previously, I am looking to have a SMALL gathering (in Irvine) over at my small apartment on my "college funded" system. Actually, the system is set up just for two with a love seat....but I can accomidate some more. I figure that I can fit: 2 in the loveseat, one on each side, and 2-3 behind. Optimal seating is 2 plus one direcly behind, but we can deal... right? ...so at max, 7 INCLUDING myself. The system isn't large or loud (mini monitors and 27" screen), but all the speakers are DIY of what I consider a fairly high caliber especially for the investment. IMO, it was designed with a good compromise to music/HT/space. You can actually see some of it in my sig file. The subwoofer has drastically changed (sold the big one and replaced it with 2 smaller ones), and the room layout has completely flipped. EDIT: The DVD player has also changed to the RP-91, and the cabling is currently DIY 89259's on the interconnects and speaker cables (the Gomer's don't fit with the new setup). Also ditched the IKEA stand for a Flexy rack. There are already a few who have expressed interest prior to this post, so they will get priority in line, but if you are interested, just say so below or email me I am looking at having this on Saturday, Dec. 14th. This is after my finals and before research gets too busy.
