This is almost up to date.  I have a JLF112V2 but due to waiting for the second one I won't bother with those pictures yet. 
Here is what I am running:
Speakers: Nearfield Acoustic Pipedream Reference 18 Speakers w/ tribal drummer subs
Amps: VAC Renaissance 140s on towers (130 watts Class A out of 8 300B tubes per channel)
Crown XLS2000 on subs
Preamplification: VAC Signature MK II w/phono utilizing the 8416 tubes
Analog: VPI HR-X w/ VPI SDS, JMW 12.7i tonearm, and Van den Hul Colibri XGW cartridge
Digital: Lumin T1 server w/ L1 harddrive

Enjoy and don't hate on the pics, maybe once I get a house I will buy a camera...













Speakers: Nearfield Acoustics Pipedreams Reference 18
Amplifier:
Crown XLS2000 on subs
VAC Renaissance 30/70 (towers)
Preamplifier/DAC: Phison PD2
Server: Antipodes DX (everyone should investigate this brand)
CD: SONY DVP 9000ES
Turntable: I will have one again... Looking at Hanss T60 or VPI Aries

It will be missed.  Selling the VAC equipment, the Crown amp, and I think the Lumin.  Going to get a Devialet 200 and probably an Auralic Aries to run as my server because I won't need the Lumin's DAC. Should sound good still but I have my doubts it will be on the same level.  On the bright side, a house will be REALLY nice.

I have not regretted moving to a Devialet 400 from my Carver Silver Seven Tube amps.

Haha this one hasn't gone up for sale. Last was the VPI TNT V-HR. It was a great table but I love the HR-X. Thanks for the positive words!

Someone should really jump on the pre. It is the best pre I have heard. Killed my Levinson 32. The amps bested the 33 amps too. I will miss the VAC gear.
