The slanted ceiling has an amazing impact on the acoustics of the room.
This is my Hi-Fi nirvana. Couldn't be happier.

Joel, Odeon does not sell in the US. I bought mine in Germany and imported them. 

Before the Odeons I had MBL 111e speakers. 

ASR amps are sublime, I can only highly recommend

Congratulations on the lovely system and room!

+1 for the chair, I have the same one in my music room :)

I'm very curious about the Odeon horns (been also following exlibris and zipost systems here), need to find a dealer for auditioning... What other speakers did you own before?

And now I will have to also audition the ASR amp...

Enjoy!

I sold the tube amps. The ASR is so unbelievably beautiful sounding that I was able to sell the other amps without shedding a tear

Lovely room and I love horns! And looks like you have a few tube amps in reserve when you want a change of flavor excellent plan. And the Eames chair always classic.

Nice!  I just came into a BC 3.7 too and greatly enjoy it.  Based on what I see here I think I can confidently say the rest of my system is the weak link :).  Similarly, I enjoy what Roon radio pulls out of the web-o-sphere after I have listened to Tortoise, Mary Latimore, or similar.

I listen to 70% high-res digital music from Tidal and Qobuz. I just recently bought a Bel Canto DAC 3.7 and, man, this thing took digital to a whole new level! Especially tracks higher than CD resolution sound so amazingly beautiful and sweet that I really don't need to listen to analog all the time. Another factor is that I'm a junkie for new Avantgarde Jazz music. My record collection of approx. 200 LPs is rather limited but T & Q offer such a huge variety of music that I often get lost exploring artists I've never heard of before. 

The little room to the left is my home office. Conveniently located, isn't it?

I totally agree the leg lamp pulls the whole room together.  Wish my neighborhood had a tree lawn where I could find one too.  Seriously this room is amazing, both visually and I'm sure acoustically as well.  Curious if you listen to more analog or digital?  ALso what is that space off to the right?

I found the leg of the "leg lamp" on the tree lawn in my neighborhood. Bought a modern shade online and made it my special lamp.

Great space for a man cave.

Forget the horns and Earnes chair, where’d you get the lamp!?
