After years of climbing Tiger Mountain, mostly here on the 'gon, and slowly graduating from Totem Hawk to the Forest and now the Wind, I think I've about reached the limit of what I can do in my space for sane (ish) amounts of money. I got bass, soundstaging, imaging, clarity, transparency. It sounds like...victory... Not much left to do but listen, but I'm open to cable suggestions. And I might upgrade to the H360 next year. I think the Winds would be happy with even more current.

Nice system Tiger Mountain. I like Esoteric, too (DV-60 for me). Would I be correct in assuming you're speaking of Tiger Mountain in Washington State? If so, I'm on Whidbey Island, to too far away.

Regards, and enjoy,


Did you get a h360? I had the h100 and bought a new h300 and there was a huge difference. I’m selling my h300 if interested, I bought new equipment and had to go with something much more powerful at 3x the cost of the h300.


B___, how have you been? Any new gear/pics for the system? Hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying being back with your system!!!


B___ You've been busy since we last talked/traded email.  Very nicely done! You must be very happy with the entire system; the speakers are gorgeous as is the room and the Hegel and Esoteric gear!  The Oppo 105D is one hell of a Blu-Ray player and upscaling monster (using one at home for video for the last year).  Thanks for letting me know that you've done alot of work on the system.  Let's talk sometime soon.  Congratulations on all the upgrades and changes!!!!


Thanks for the input! Noted. 


Give the h360 a good listen before you purchase. I like the h200 better. Plus you can use your own dac. Also I didn't notice the greater power when listening to harbeths but maybe you would with the totems.


Hey there,
Might I suggest some Morrow Audio Speaker Cables?  After breakin, they sound MARVELOUS!!!...and not INSANELY priced!!
