An Architect's Music Room

The music room took a lot of love and 10 years of planning/design to build. Now it is finally there (well almost). Here are some initial pictures of the analog shrine. Hopefully I can now continue my harmless indulgence in good music and share it with my little daughter as she grows up.

New updates in 2016-17 with new McIntosh C50 preamp and MVP891 SACD player, sweet sounding BMC M2 monoblocks, Primaluna Dialogue Seven monoblocks and a beautiful Transrotor Leonardo Doppio turntable. Latest addition to top it off is a pair of the magnificent Focal Utopia Scala speakers in a warm gray finish.

Thanks for checking out my systems! We're in Michigan.... where nearly two feet of snow fell since Christmas! 



Hello Sourojit,
    Just a beautiful home, what an inspiration. Sound quality may be paramount but equipment exists in our living space so it has to be beautiful too. Yours is simply gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. 

    We have an MCM house too, and have just torn out our cheap 90's kitchen and replaced it with a decidedly retro kitchen. I'd be honored if you took a peek; it's labeled Oran and Sara's Kitchen Stereo. (Our main system may be of interest too, it's titled Music is Magic)

    Congratulations on a world class house.
