Na, leave the house wring as is. Two of those puppies your going to be running their own dedicated 400amp service from the street. Not sure if you will have to pay for the locall transformer upgrade though. On the bright side if you rip out your furnance and put them in a room with the open ducting and a fan it should keep you toasty in the winter

What kind of music do people with these ridiculous setups listen to? I know Linkwitz is all about live orchestral sorta stuff, is that what most of these people are listening to on $100k+ systems?

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

Not sure about $100k+ systems, but my ~$75k monstrosity of ridiculousness plays only the two best types of music ...country AND western

Sorry, just couldn't resist. Seriously...
I spin/stream blues, rock, world, jazz, some classical, & some metal. Good and bad quality recordings in all formats, my system is an equal-opportunity UNSPOILER. I "voiced" her for my own enjoyment of a strong majority of my entire music collection at volumes faithful to the original performances. She may not perform like a dragster on top-notch tarmac; but then again, a dragster can't round corners on bumpy alley streets either.

Your turn--define "ridiculous"

Thanks for the reply! Glad to hear someone with a system of your caliber isn't a complete music and recording snob. My system is more in the $1-2k range, and might not be the best for all music, but my line arrays do a fantastic job at producing the mountains of feedback and distortion in the doom metal I primarily listen to. I couldn't ask for much bigger sound without a set of 4x12 guitar cabs in my living room. Maybe someday I can do the same on a $75k monstrosity like you!

But hey! If you are lucky enough to drive a dragster, who cares about turning. I'll take 7-8 g's of straight acceleration. ...wouldn't mind 75k for a system either....:-)

Not that anyone really cares any more about turntables, but for only $450, you might be able to buy this operational sculpture soon...
