Re: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

OK, I'll post links in the meantime. Once I can post pics again (hopefully?), I will re-post.


So, here goes the arrival of the ATCs...


Edit: I cannot even post the links... One link does come up, but if I add more, I get error messages...


Edit 2: Aha!!! Figured out the posting. See below for the continuation...

Re: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

I will use them for room damping... Big Smile Seriously, though, that is a problem.


I have to keep 4 boxes as I do not know which set will go back - and that is a lot of space as they are simply huge. At the moment they are stacked in the room (so, see, room damping it is!) but I can store them for a short time in the basement car park I am told...


I am itching to post some pics of the whole story here but cannot! I keep getting errors... Grrrr...

Re: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

OMG, what have I done!  Apparently I encouraged this.  You can't listen to me, I drink heavily! (stops typing to take sip of rum and coke)...


 Awesome!  Quite toying with us and open those suckers up! 

Music Server -> Devialet 200 -> PMC Fact 8 -> Chord Cables

Re: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

Yes, yes! Jaxwired - baaaaaaad. OK, I'll have a drink to you tonight, just before the Spain-Portugal game!


Well, the unpacking:
The C1C just comes out. Easy.





Note these are black, not rosewood as the main ones (rosewood finish option is more expensive than the C1C speaker itself!)


 


The 50s and 100s will take a bit longer to get out and install.

Re: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

The 50s are in the flat, the 100s are just outside. I was alone so getting them out and even moving within the flat was tricky. 
 


To move the boxes around I put either a thick towel or a an upside-down door mat under them. The floor is quite smooth, so they slide relatively easily. Tilting the box onto a corner and pivoting also is a feasible way of moving the heavy stuff without lifting.



 




So, open the box.. Another one inside. These are thick hard carton double-boxes.
