Description

I have been Working on this for 10 Years, most of the Equipment is used,and Four Pieces were Purchased from Audio gone.My wife is astonished with how much money i spend on this room and i think she is about to leave me ha. My vechicle's are junk! But the theater room is incredible.Even with all the money spent, the biggest improvement was the sound treatments. It changed everything. it turn the sound into high end. When you purched the high end equiptment it never sounds as good as the reviews say. I heard systems for half the money sound better than what i had untill the sound treatment. now, I would put up against anybody! I got to the point where I was going to sell every thing I had in my sound system.The more I spent,the more unhappy i was,i wanted better.Until, the final stage, sound treatment” wow! Amazing. next big chang was the amp the krell 400cx mono stero amp wow it made the 803n sing like never before. then i bought the 801N and i can't belive what i was hearing. another big change,

now i am blow away.

Word of advice if you think you are not getting what u paid for consider sound acoustical treatment, you will be amazed.

Thank you

Vito

Great Looking System. Would like to know more about the acoustic treatments you used. I assumed that the wall fabric is covering some sort of fiberglass insulation?

Hey vito, what type of acoustical treatments are you reffering to?
Thanks,
John.

try Classe or levinson amps and a good tube preamp like ARC

I find the victorian parlor theme for a high tech home theater both unique and brilliant, like something out of a Jules Verne novel. The kids are doing something very similar in what they refer to as steam punk. Enjoy!

My point is, Hillyau, he already has one.

I don't think it's rocket science to audio folks here to realize the importance of a power conditioner on sight & sound...

Williamg508, I do know what I am talking about. I have designed and sold high end for 29 years. I know Dan and I sell B&W. My mentors were Peter Snell, David Berning, Dale Pitcher, and I was voted top 20 most knowledgeable dealer in Bound for Sound Magazine.

The B&W's have a hot top end that makes the tweeter sound disconnected from the midrange and Krell is grainy with a bite at 14k that makes the 800 series sizzle.

Try Clayton on B&W's and you will think the Krell sounds like a Sony with power and bass and build quality and good looks. LOL

HOLY SHNIKEES!! VITO....Great job brother!Not only am i a huge B&W fan but i can only imagine how that theater sounds. I may not have made mine look the way yours does but that does not meen that i dont appreciate all the work, time & money you put into it. 10+ my friend!

i think the guy who said krell&bw don't go together never picked up a sterophile mag or been to any of the shows and has no knowledge of the law of physics they were mated together because the db's of the b&w's need some muscle to push the boys anyway my only suggestion would be get them 801's off the floor and buy sound anchors stands designed strickly for b&w's you'll swear you have knew speakers in closing i think dan Dagastino & bowers&wilson have just a little bit more knowledge then the critc who said they don't belong together and remember your ears don;t lie

That is awesome. Wow. Congrats on a cool system and room. I agree with Hillyau on the power conditioning; it sharpens the video side as well.

Hi Vito, Did you ever tried on power condition, It's so important for the Picture and sounds. Try on the Isotek, Nova for front gear, Titan for Projector and Power-amp. You will hear and see the big different. Cheer! Hill

You have done an excellent job with the interior. If it sounds half as good as it looks, you have me beat hands down!

Vito:
WOW!
It looks so good I want to pop some corn and buy a ticket. Seriously, a great job. I found your system by looking for an acoustical treatment thread. I think I'd like to start with something smaller though. :-)

Cheers,

Hey Vito,

Room treatment makes a huge difference but I have to tell you that a lot of the problem you may have had has to do with the fact that Krell and B & W don't work well together and only a knoll gable (and honest) dealer could have helped you with that. (Or a killer audiophile friend who owns equipment that Stereophile has never heard of. LOL)

Glad you got it toned down with room treatment because it would have been bright and hard sounding before.
