Sure will do, once it's fully setup I'll do an open house/sharing session.
Am planning some upgrades shortly to tie in all the equipments:
1. New pre-pro to replace my nu-prime HD-AVP. Likely it's the Acurus Muse
2. Matching center channel speaker: Legacy Silverscreen HD
3. Either a mono power amp for center channel or a 3 channel power amp.

Well just confirmed on the upgrades/changes, although it may take time for the stuff to come:
1. Acurus Muse to replace the nu prime hd avp
2. Legacy Silhouette Center Speaker to replace current SOnus Faber Smart Center.
3. Mcintosh MC207 this is unexpected actually getting it in trade for turntable gear that am letting go. Still TBC but if go ahead this will replace the nuprime mch k38.

Exciting times ahead!

McIntosh 207 arrives! Loving it, very quiet and tonnes of headroom. Very dynamic as well, looking at the meters bouncing is fun.

Well some updates:
1. Just installed the Legacy Silhouette center, man that thing is huge. Big upgrade in vocals, much more clarity. Now matches closer to the LR main Legacy Signature towers.
2. My long time serving REL S5 went kaput. Got the quote to replace the main board was almost as much as a new subwoofer. So likely will get the Rel S510. Plan to do stereo sub with the REL G2.
3. Got a REL T5i just to run high level signal for the center channel.
4. Got 2nd hand JLE110 as backup whilst the S5 went for servicing at a good price. I believe I’ll just keep it and put this at the back wall.
I’ll be running a 4 sub system.. lol..

Some updates to the system:
- Muse Prepro has finally arrived and installed. Been loving it so far, awesome detailed sound and clarity. It's not been calibrated yet will do that after CB over.
- Added a pair of Atmos front over head. Now system is set as 5.3.4 with 2 pairs of front LR .
- Added HDFURY Vertex 2 video processor to split and scale 2 outputs for pj & TV.

Think that's it so far, really enjoying this setup..
