Description

I have been working with my system the last 6 years, and finaly I found my reference sound.

Tryed averything from Usher 8871 BE II, Von Schweikert VR4SR MK II, VSA VR4JR to Sonus Faber Domus Grand Piano Black. Also a lot of electronics from Rotel, Halcro SSP 220, Ayon Typhon, Pass Labs, Ear Yoshino V20, BAT, and Meridian +++.

Now I am looking in to picture upgrades. I do not know if 3D is the way to go yet, because I think the glases are a big drawback. Realy, I can not see the whole family sitting in the theater with huge, heavy and wierd glases while watching a movie. And picture dynamics are less as well in 3D. Any thoughts on that guys?

So I am thinking maybe a good 2D PJ like a Sony SXRD series instead??

Some information about the room. There are some acoustic treatments like bass trap, diffusors, absorbations on front wall, spreadlight absorbent, walls hung on silicone based fasteners, cealing with LF absorbent, and some minor things. I do not belive in over dampening of the listening room. In my opiniun, that might turn something good in to a dull listening experience.

To control the system and lightning, I use Logitech Harmony 1100. The thought behind the light where to create an atmosphere with the lightning, and by the choise of collor on the wall and sealing. This was intended as the golden path between the cinematic batcave and the clinical listeningroom. The collors are two shades off gray wich in turn creates a warmer atmosphere.

During movies I have chosen to use two subwoofers at this time, i did use three subwoofers, but it shows that two SVS towers gives enough headroom and fun. Anthem ARC system helps with setting up the system during movie, but for two channel listening I use only the front speakers without ARC and subwoofers.

Very nice and cool looking system!  Can you please elaborate how you selected and decided on the placement of room treatment material?

If I would merge my systems, I would choose the Anthem processor.

Amazing room and one hell of a HT system,...it must sound great! Have you contemplated updating the Classe 102 player? In its day it was a very fine piece,...do you do alot of music-only playback on this fine system?

Really nice system. Looks like you have the best of both worlds.
If I may ask, what is the sofa you have? It is beautiful and appears to have removable/adjustable headrests? Comfortable I hope?
Thanks

Thank you Zmanastronomy.

Yes, a lot of thought went in, pluss a lot of trial and error with a lot of fun.
I must admit, Plato saved the day with dynamik, and nutural midrange. The attack is somthing else as well.

In short, they are the best speakers I have ever tested in my room.
