    There's always something "Better", and it's a chase you don't need.

    I've seen videos about that system before, and two questions arise:

    [1] Why three speakers at the front?

    [2] I presume the four grandfather clocks are not actually working. Having spent all that money on a system, I wouldn't want to hear the "tick-tock" of the clocks interfering with my musical pleasure.

    He might have a trifield system, Meridian were big on that for a while and apparently it worked well.

    Anyway I'm finally in a position where I think my system is good enough. It's only taken me 30 years

    Whatever floats yer boat. Converting my old classic car to electric is all consuming right now but nice to take some time in the listening room that for me is good enough not to keep looking for something else

    Yes I've seen this one before too.

    1) it's a full surround system, so has a centre channel

    2) The clocks do work, you can hear them chiming whilst he's being interviewed. I suppose he mutes them while listening, either that or the system is so loud it drowns them out. Certainly looks capable of it.

    Not that keen on his decor, reminds me a bit of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
