HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
This is looking very stylish Dan, congratulations The last photo shows you've got a lovely, relaxed environment too. So is that rear width and rear height you have?
My only comment, in light of my own recent experience, would be to ask if you've considered some acoustic treatment behind you given you're fairly close to the rear wall? Should be possible to do something that matches the decor.
Thanks very much Ben.
Yes - surround and surround backs, if that's what you meant.
I have thought about acoustic treatment, as the sound is noticeably better if I lean forward a bit, so killing the refection from the rear wall ought to improve things. Did you make yours yourself, or buy them?
oh - and thanks for sorting out my pictures!
Sonos ZP90 / CA 751BD / Sky HD / Apple TV
-> AVI ADM40
-> Panasonic PDP50G10
Yeah surround and surround backs is what I meant! The leaning forward thing may be at least as much to do with getting in the sweet spot, are you able to move your speakers any wider to experiment? Either way, an acoustic panel may be handy. Only thing is it'll need to come down very close to the top of the sofa to kill the first reflection, so doesn't blend quite as smoothly as ordinary decoration. I made mine myself - I've got one picture of half way through the process on my system thread and a full explanation on my thread on atcforums - I'll try to find some time to post some more pics here if people might find it useful.
No worries re the pics!
Unfortunately i can't move them any further apart as i need them as far from back and side walls as possible to keep the bass under control. I'll have a think about what I can do with the acoustics. Cheers.
A major change....
Arrgh. Does anyone know why it isn't working? I was sure I was using the right link?!
nice speakers, did you not consider keeping your cd player?
cyrus cd6s, dab 8, pre xp & psxr, 2*8 powers, chordette gem and dynaudio 52se.
Thanks! No, I thought I'd take the opportunity to streamline as much as possible and go to purely streaming.
What did i do wrong?
You left in [IMG] at start and end, for this system you just need the direct link. On all photo hosting sites that should be an option or, like I just did, you can just delete those bits. That needs to be entered in the box that opens when you click the 'tree' link.
Lookin great btw!
Ah I get it - that caught me out because on the HDD Audio forum it was the other way around! Thanks very much, I'm liking the streamlined new system (but mainly because of how it sounds )
