A pair of these (ADAM Audio S7A Mk2):

I even have enough space to place them!

On another thread I have been discussing big JBL's with Vladimir, I always used to have a second 'fun' system in addition to a 'proper' hi-fi.

Nowhere to put big JBLs even if I could find and afford such a thing, so now I would have these.......

 

The Mackie HR824-Series 2, not the most refined but massive ouput, no sub required and the ability to handle any house party. Active of course, 150 plus 100 watts rms, 8 in bass and a huge ABR taking up most of the back panel, under the amp pack.

Warn the neighbours....... :bounce:

RE: Your Dream Music System

I would have to audition a lot more systems to decide on a dream system. Of course, if I were in a position to afford one, I would have the resources to do so.

Whatever the system, it would be placed in a room that was measured and treated by an acoustical engineer and finished by an interior designer working in tandem. So it would both sound good and look good.

1 million lottery win: new house or flat - with the same kit but bigger room

5 million lottery win: purpose-built acoustically designed room and kit, in a new house of course

100 million lottery win: over 5 to 10 years create and develop a sustainable independent loudspeaker testing and research facility, using leading expertise and equipment, gain industry (pro and consumer) recognition. Develop and adopt relevant industry standards.

RE: Your Dream Music System

If it was in my current room, then a pair of these:

With a nice Pre (no idea) and a simple CDP like the Apollo-R and my Gyrodec would do me, maybe an SME arm on the Gyro.

If it was in a bigger room, then I would probably be getting an order in for some Magnepan MG12s (or bigger depending on room) with a Bryston Pre/Power and probably CD for good measure. Again with my Gyro I would have thought.

Michell Gyrodec SE / RB300 / 2M Blue | Sony DVP-S9000ES | Bryston B60 | Rega R9

As much as I like the idea how would this business make a profit?

Hi-Fi - Yamaha RX-V667 > AVI DM5 > AVI subwoofer

Head-Fi - Epiphany Acoustics EHP-O2Di > Sennheisser HD700

Portable - Sony NWZ-A847 > Westone UM3x

RE: Your Dream Music System

Since we are now talking about serious money, I would bey a field and install a replica of this......

 

I would then play every single known recording, in cronological order whilst eating 'Ben and Jerrys' ice cream.
