Great system!!  I have the 1000ESD pre amp and the 55ES amplifier and would like to ask you a question.  Can I connect a current dvd player or television receiver which has digital output and connect it to the 1000ESD either via the coaxial or digital input?

Yes you can, but mind that E1000ESD can decode 2 channels only (Dolby Surround) so you have to set the audio settings in your DVD player to "stereo downmix".

Neat system. Why did you choose the N55ES amps over the N80ES?

N80ES is driving front speakers as they need pretty large amounts of power.
Sure, the N80ES sounds better, richer and smoother but I doubt that would be audible in surround effects.

The main reason of course is that mint N80ES are pretty hard to get, the one on the picture was borrowed from my neighbour. Biamping test was ment for stereo mode only and since there is no difference driving the front speakers with separate amplifiers I decided not to seek for another one. For now.

I see.

Your photography is very good. Can you give me any tips on taking better pictures?

Also how do you clean off fingerprints?

Thanks!

It's pretty hard  to take good pictures because the components are black and there is often a bad lighting. First, you need a stand. Then you have to use a long exposure time. 1, 2, maybe 10 seconds. Experiment. When daylight is not an option, try to use non directional lighting (external flash, reflectors with white bulbs ...). And at the end ... Photoshop: transform, rotate, levels, contrast, blur, sharpen, color balance ...

For cleaning you can use Lambskin Chamois and Microfiber cloth for the dust.
For heavy dirt you can also use window cleaner, but be careful, some signs might be erased!

I recently took new pics of my own SONY home theater setup but not quite as good photo quality like gerchy though. I do have a Nikon DSLR as well but dont have all the proper lighting I need. check it out anyways!
