Can’t wait to hear your impressions. The 901’s are interesting. How will you set up the bi amp? Does your signal get split with an active crossover?

Wow, that’s crazy! Hope you have a bunch of dedicated power lines for them!

Must sound amazing.

Very nice set-up. I considered 4 x 611 as well as 2 x 1.25kw options before deciding to go with MC-901s. Having said that, I currently have 2 x 611 running the 800s in the interim as there is an issue with one of the MC-901. I will be posting update pictures momentarily.

Thanks! I have uploaded photos of the current "situation". The during the install there was an issue with one of the MC-901s. My dealer is taking care of the issue and have provided MC-611s for us to drive B&W 800D3s in the interim. I can tell you that the even the Bi-Wired 611s sound pretty good driving the front L-R. So, I anticipate the MC-901s are going sound that much better.

In summary, the finished product is coming along but not quite there yet. Sometime in the not too distant future we will upgrade the current Panasonic 65 inch to an 83 inch OLED - at least that is the plan today. Also, I have not yet decided whether I will stick with one sub (B&W ASW-1000) in the rear corner or move to a smaller dual sub scenario for HT/Movies. Any opinions?

Lastly, I want to add music streaming to the set-up. I am interested in opinions and recommendations on the approaches (various brand streamers, DACs, Roon Nucleus, etc...). This is a new area for me so I am trying to learn so that I can make a better educated decision on how best to implement. Note the vacant bottom right shelf which is eagerly and patiently waiting for me to figure out the path forward.

Nice set-up and a very cosy room!

I do hope you don't suffer too much from reflections of the sound.
The shape of the room is not ideal and the system might benefit from some room treatment, to further improve your sound.

The RoomPerfect of the MX-170 makes great work.
No need for more room treatments.
