Nice system and great match: arcam and kef. Probably very musical and a bit smooth.

Nice system! Is that a projector screen too?

In which case your fronts are a bit asymmetrical to the centre of the screen?

Great room and nice kit. I wonder only about acoustics. Super!

Yes it is an Othelloline electric screen (9ft I think) which I find great... you're absolutely right, I have pulled the front left back in a bit but I'm still evaluating speaker position, toe in/out etc..

Cheers for the heads up

Looks really nice!  What TV do you have?  And is that a PV1 I can see?

RE: System updated 2013

Fronts more symetric and more away from walls a little? A few more soft furnishings? I think a lovely room which may be spoiled by too much 'treatment'. I don't know if an antimode would help tame bass. I know nothing and in no way wish to critisize a very cosy looking lounge area. I'm sure you are very pleased and enjoy it.

RE: System updated 2013

Gorgeous! Love the 'atmosphere' created by those brick walls, and the overall cosy warmth of the room. Quite the contrast from the "sterile" white surroundings in my own listeningroom, but yours is still very neat looking. Nice balance! Would be cool to have a listen to that system!
