First Attempt at Hi Fi

I live in Bangkok Thailand and I’m currently building my first Hi Fi system. Well actually, this is my second attempt. The first was a Mid Fi system that didn’t last very long. After reading numerous magazines, websites, reviews, etc upgrades were surely to happen. So here it is my first attempt.

There are quite a bit of Hi Fi shops here in Bangkok but not all are very helpful. Luckily, I was able to find a shop that has been around for years that was able to give me advices and numerous listens. So I think I’m done for now and would like to just focus on happy listening and building my CD collection.

Yep, I agree. Looks nice. But you definitely need some more furnishings to flesh out the sound. Rugs and curtains are a good place to start. And maybe some heavy tapestries on the wall. Your pics remind me of a scaled down version of my room. When I first set up the system years ago it sounded absolutely horrible until I got some "stuff" in it.
