RE: House full of sound

Sorry, Outlaw. The PMCs are sitting in their boxes in London waiting to be driven down to the holiday place. That'll be in about 10 days.

RE: House full of sound

... but here are some pics of the man cave in London, taken on this grey February morning.

Not much going on here: just the Devialet, a Sonos controller, my bongos and one Sonus faber:

The Devialet is fed directly from a Synology NAS via USB. Also visible is the headphone system: Cullen-modded Sonos Connect, Lakewest-modded Audiolab M-DAC, and my much-loved Hifiman HE-500s.

The room has turned into a Shrine of Bruce.

The small black thing resting against the base of the left-hand speaker is my iPhone, which is providing some primitive lighting. Note to self: buy flash gun for camera.

:cheers:

House full of sound no longer

It's a long time since I updated here. Since the photos above were taken, the Cremonas went into storage and were replaced by the Martin Logan Montis.

But the big news is that I'll be bringing the curtain down on this thread and starting a new one, as we're moving house in a fortnight. There'll be a bigger 'den' for the Montis, and the Cremonas will be coming out of storage to grace the living room. There'll also be some decisions to make concerning amplification ...

Thanks!

When we move in (10 days away) it'll all be a bit ad hoc. But there will be one immediate plus: a considerably bigger space for the Martin Logans to sing in. Some acoustic treatment will go in right away. I have some acoustic panels to fit on the ceiling and the wall behind the listening position. Together with the carpet, this should provide a nicely "dead" acoustic, which is what Martin Logans like best.
