Very nice! How warm do they run? I find my 1502 to run a bit warm, but not what I would call hot. That classification is reserved for my old Jolida 502 combined with the Musical Fidelity 550K's. Now that was HOT!

Very nice system. I see I am not the only with location limitations. It would be so much easier as a single guy but life would not be as interesting then. My wife likes to inject her “feng shui” into my equipment location.

Everything thing is in a feng shui swing. Just wanted to test out the hardware with simple placement and connections first.

Not too hot that it would overpower air conditioning. But enough to warm a 16’ x 28’ room by a few degrees. Everyone says that tubes have a warm sound. LOL

Indeed. They can be a blessing during the winter months. Post some pics when you get your final setup. Your Focals look really nice too.
