Hello from New Zealand

well here we go, post number one....
you realize how intimidating this place is with its huge pool of knowledge

Anyway, hello from a very wet NZ, we've had 3 weeks of storms, high winds and rain to keep us indoors of late, ok me, I'm 43 married 2 teenagers self employed and have had an audio interest since I was a kid. I'll blame the old man for introducing me to James Last and others.

So the system has changed from 2 channel to prologic then DTS/AC3, BlueRay must be next, speakers have changed, amps changed and added, I'm nearly happy with it, EQ could also be on the list

Here's a list of my baby

Monitor Pioneer PDP805XG
Pre-amp/Processor Rotel RSP966
DVD Rotel RDV1050
LD Pioneer CLD1750
CD Rotel RCD865BX
Power PureAV PF40
Rack custom made with ply shelves and 4 x 20mm threaded rod at 2.0m high, with a heap of washers and nuts to hold it all together so all are adjustable

Speaker cable Proel 8 core

Mains JBL L7 tweeked with Vocal 4” with ported chamber and reworked x-overs
Amps Rotel RB991top and Rotel RB990 bottom, horizontally bi-amped

Centre JBL L7 based custom with 035TIA tweeter, 2x 704G mids and 2x 708G-1 mid bass
Amp Rotel RB980 bridged

Rears JBL L7
Amps Rotel RB991 top and Rotel RB980 bottom, horizontally bi-amped

Subs JBL 2x W12 GTi in 3 chamber bandpass
Amp QSC RSA3266

Room lighting is a Lutron GRX3106 with about 25 halogens hanging of it
Remote control Phillips Pronto Pro RU990
Remote IR link is all Xantach

Cheers
Bret
