A small resource reconfiguration means my TDLs are bi-wired again, on my nice nice Cable Talk 4.1 cable too. DAMN, they sound good.

I'm so looking forward to getting my fat Yamaha amp fixed, it rocks these speakers like nothing else I've heard.

pffft. hardly. I mostly use my system for playing mp3s, for goodness sakes :)

Most of my stuff comes from Richer Sounds (I worked there for a few months, years ago, and made extensive use of staff discounts), and RS only sells medium-fi at best. I did score some nice secondhand gear from some contacts I got at RS though - including that gorgeous Yamaha.

I only wish I had the money to be a proper hifi geek... :)

Surely RS sell everything you need for home use (except Linn, AFAIK)? It's not worth playing with the big toys unless you've got space. And probably a public entertainment licence. ;)
Big toys clicky

RS don't sell Linn, no - but as I said, RS are very much medium-fi in the grand scheme of things. They know that, it's how they make so much money, by selling good (not great, but way better than crappy prebuilt systems) hifi at affordable prices. Even Linn are not that far up the hifi ladder - there's way better out there, if you've got the cash (and boy, do you need the cash - I've seen interconnects at over £500 each). To illustrate this point, there was a Serious hifi shop two doors down from the RS I used to work in, and they'd send people to us and us to them - the "serious hifi" and "consumer hifi" markets don't really cross over that much.

Also it's not size, it's what you do with it that counts :) I'll take a quality separates system kicking out 40W per channel over a multi KW rig anyday.

It certainly is what you do with it & EAW aren't like other line arrays; they're lovely magic bananas of sound... :)
Happy birthday, BTW!

And all i've got is some obscure retro Trio/Kenwood (older than me) ka-1500 mk II.

It does a good job, tho.
