  • Hello From A New Member In Louisiana

    I just joined today and made my first post in the Reel to Reel forum. I am still learning my way around here and how to do different things. For now I will just try to post a picture and description of my listening space. It has taken quite some time to get everything to where it is today. But, it has been time well spent since I am very pleased with where it is. The room measures 21' x 25' x 12' cathedral peak. It is separate from my small home, but connected by a covered walkway. I recently did a Zoom interview for YouTube:

          I haven't quite figured out how to set a signature yet. Yes those are the VMPS RM-V60's. The bass towers are actually part of the complete system, which is very rare. I was the first owner and I only know of one other complete system out there, but there may be more.

                    I'm not sure how I had missed it over these years, but then I don't spend a whole lot of time online, so I shouldn't be too surprised that I did.

                      Welcome to the group!

                      I had heard the RM-V60 in a few demos with Brian Cheney. Always thought they were a pretty special speaker. I still have my RM-2neo speakers, but they are sitting in storage. Those are still my wife's favorite speakers. I see SST Ampzilla 2000 monos in the pic. Nice amps, too!
