    No pics yet, But here is what I am using-

    Denon UD-M30
    Kenwood 100w Sub
    Lindy usb DAC
    Small studio monitors

    The DAC is connected to my pc via TOS and then by ana cables to the Denon. The speakers were active, but i have removed the amps, and they are using crossovers from some tannoy speakers.

    I've got them about 18 inches out from the wall but I do keep them all up front like that. 95% of the time they're used for music and I am unfortunately limited to small military housing and I've got bigger furniture being delivered. Once I get a bigger living space I will be upgrading the towers, adding a power amp, and placing everything around my listening area appropriately. But for now this is what I'm working with :)

    18 inches maybe to much but all i was trying to say was to put 2 pairs away some were and listen too 1 pair time so there is breathing space, although that might be your issue not having some were put them..

    Well as long as your enjoying and have fun with it :)..

    Not to mention the golden rule of matching speakers. Layman's terms here; Even if all three sets are from the same manufacturer, their 'colour' is not matched and therefore the sound signature of each speaker is fighting with one another. If indeed all three sets are connected, it is going to sound like crap in comparison to picking the best pair of the batch and equalizing them for your room type. Not to mention the impedance of the signal being split into three different paths will not give each speaker enough power to be properly driven which will degrade the sound as well. A classic mistake made by the inexperienced (not necessarily implying yourself). But as he stated, he is working with what he has available.

    True, I got out of dealing with HIFI and such back in the early 2k after 16 years and still today think some of the old speakers are much better even more so the newer TANNOY which is a shame what they done to those these days.

    Yet another expensive hobby and you gotta find the speakers you like most for what your doing with them.. As i used to get mine out the local paper and have at least 3 pairs which depending on music type or films i was watching.

    Poor man's audio system:

    Home: PC with Audigy 2 ZS, Creative Inspire P380 (but I prefer using headphones), Philips SHM1900 (planning to buy Superlux HD681).

    Mobile: Nokia Lumia 625 with these badboys. Random Philips earphones with replaced jack!

    Not much, but It's mine.

    My measurements were way off, sorry, I have them 9 inches from the wall and that's literally the only place I can put them!

    Here's a link to check out the specs on my receiver (I think that's definitely enough power even though I might connect a power amp):

    I've had all 7 speakers on max volume bumping various genres of music with little to no distortion!
