I still love and buy CD's! Although I have to admit, most of the time I just stream Pandora and use the DA in my preamp to make it sound pretty good.

Started messing around with extreme nearfield subs. I guess you could say it's getting serious. Giving them about 2kw, eq'd for response down to about 10hz.

So... Extreme Near field. This means, you're going to set these up behind the couch and blast them, but your neighbors can't hear it?

Or does this mean you have a better delivery of the bass up close without the effect of the room? Brief googling has not served me well this time

A little of both -being as you're so close they don't need as much power as a traditional positioned. You also eliminate a lot of the room effects (good and bad) sitting so near.

The big thing is that the tactile effect is nuts in the extreme nearfield. Meaning that for a given sound pressure level you feel the music far more. At high volume levels it's easy to put visible waves in the couch. Too much is gimmicky but some moderate amounts make everything far more enjoyable and imparts a live music feel.

Haha, no, I do have some wall treatments but they're minimal. The foam is just to angle the speakers up, the tweeters are in-line to the ear, and reflections off the hard desk surface are reduced. :)
