The system is made up as stated above with the addition of YamahaCD S300 cd player, Technics SL 1600 Mark II with Dynavector 10x5 MkII turntable and cart. The weak link are my cables which are basically just copper. The room is not square in shape...

I have a rather modest system. An Yamaha A-S2100 integrated amp, Klipsch Cornwall III load speakers. The room is a bit odd shaped but 30' x 30' with tray ceilings.The sound is distortion... and a kinda hollow sound. 
Yamaha? Welcome back!
The Yamaha A-S2100 is a powerhouse of an amp, only it is made in Malaysia.
