    Difference between reQuest and Summits are vast. Much better bass with Summits. Better panel integration with woofer too. Smaller footprint, easier to live with than the reQuest, but reQuest had bigger soundstage.

    I have toyed with moving the component rack away and in the corner where the amp is now, which would allow me to move the speakers closer together and get a little more focused imaging.. haven't had time recently, but I may try that in the future. TV unfortunately has to stay there. :-(

Unfortunately, the equalizer kept failing and blowing my speakers when it did. The 3bx I kept for a while after that and used for companding cassette recordings. Those recordings sounded pretty good although only in my system. Take care.

    The 4bx definitely adds some punch to compressed audio files and makes them sound MUCH better. Doesn't do much for lossless formats, though.

    Here is a picture of my system. The speakers are Proac Response D28. In the topmost row are the power amplifiers, Accuphase A-30 in bridged mode. In the middle row to the left an Accuphase C-2000 pre amplifier with DAC-20 add-on board. In the lower row to the left an Isol-8 mains conditioner and to the right a Cambridge DVD89. The Duet receiver can be seen in the middle row of the rack to the right of the pre.

    Home-made bass traps in the corners.

    Sorry for the bad picture quality! The picture was taken with an ultra wide-angle lens.

    Regards,
    OS

    How's your "mini" system with the Charlize and Harbeths doing?
    I've been considering swapping my Kans for the P3s.

    Here's my latest pic of the Squeezebox

    It feeds a Beresford mk6 DAC.
    Sound output is via my home built single ended triode amp
    and a pair of home built open baffle speakers using Fostex, Goodmans and Eminence drive units
    the bottom bass drivers are actively driven by subwoofer plate amps.

    I do like the Harbeths, but the whole system is just wasted in the room that it is (kitchen, about 7' square). I'm tempted to get a Boom instead!

    My cat likes to sit on top of my speakers when they're in use - something about listening for his master's (or his servant's) voice. He'd have a hard time with your speakers
