scar972 - Thanks for your kind words. I just went to the hardware store and bought some hangers. I use 4 to a panel on the ceiling. I think they are supposed to be used to hang plants. BTW your room is beyond words. You've got a lot of stuff! Just listened to Anthony Grimani on Audioholics give a talk for about one hour on room acoustics and the effectiveness of various panel designs. I highly respect the man. He did not find the GIK "Mathematical Sequence" type diffusion panels to be effective below about 3K if memory serves so they aren't doing much for that critical midrange. I now wish I had listened to him sooner. I still like the sound in my room. Guess I was just lucky.
Beautiful room @gsal Congrats! I love the way the GIK panels look in your room. I just installed GIK in mine as well. I was wondering how you mounted the panels to the ceiling, did you use hardware GIK provided or stuff from the local store?
CY - Yeah, maybe, but you have to wonder why a company like Aesthetix would sell a $12000 amp with an "inferior" power cord when the sound of their amp can be be improved to amazing heights by simple updating it with a $1-200 after market power cord. No ill will intended...just saying.
Beautiful room and system, @gsal ! I love the tidiness and starting with good GIK treatments. But I am definitely One Guy on the Internet Who Thinks You Will be Amazed What Happens When You Put a $100-200 Power Cord on Your Amp.
No special power cords or conditioning in use at present. Only dedicated lines. I believe my $ could be better spent elsewhere. To that end I am looking to purchase a new Clearaudio Innovation Compact TT with Tracer tonearm. Probably going with the new Hana Umami also. Thanks for the comments. Oh, BTW, I used to own the Thiel's you have. It was great to see them again in your system. Good listening.
I love this room! Curious, you don't mention nor do I see any power conditioning or special cords, wondering what your thoughts/experiences are with these? Bet the Vandersteen/Aesthetix is a wonderful combination.
