I like those, and don't mind the whole thing as an acoustical art installation. But it is a shitty amplifier being sold for a lot of money.

Well, open baffles are superb (I have Linkwitz LX521's) but those above are far too close to the wall - they need to be 4 to 6 feet from the back wall.

In fact Bastanis website shows their latest offering (Sagarmatha duo) about that distance in front of a curtained wall (which will tend to absorb rear radiation)

The best thing about this system is the "Live in Hamburg" by E.S.T :dance:

I had one of those CD players back in the day - it was a thing of beauty inside. That pic brings back memories of the superb construction standard. It was not lightweight!

HD800S, Musical Fidelity x-Can v3, changed tubes for 6H23P. Capacitor mod also. Savi Audio SA9227 32bit384khz DAC, ASIO. Foobar2000. Music is locally saved Flac, sourced from Tidal. Foobar has Graphical Equalizer DSP adjusted with S/N dependent values from Sennheiser combined with What-HiFi's broader testing.

I have went with prices and reviews when choosing my gear. Headphones and Amp are second hand. I can say I'm happy with what I have. X-Can v3 might be a bit bulky for travel.

"Might be."
