Description

Update: Moved Thiel CS1.5 to another room and replaced them with Revel Performa F228Be. The Thiels were surprisingly musical in  comparison however the Revels filled the large room better. The full range of sound from the Revels made the music feel real and effortless. The MiniDSP Dirac Live processor made a stunning improvement to the sound in the room after correction filter was applied. The Townshend Audio isolation podiums and platforms truly reveal a nuanced and live quality at all frequencies!

Jeff,
Glad to hear that you moved to the Revels as well😎
The Benchmark AHB2 and DAC3 are perfect for the Revel Performas!
The miniDSP SHD made the room signature disappear along with all the pesky modes and resonances, allowing the Revels to breathe freely! Highly recommend Dirac Live for anyone with a listening room!!!

Skurra:

Nice setup
I went from Thiels to Revel , also 

How did the benchmark amp play with the Thiels  ?    I found Thiels were extremely , persnickety on amps , to sound wholesome in the  upper ranges ? 

What cartridge are you using ?
And cables ? 

Ps: crappy speakers ( lol) 

Well done

Jeff

music pod appreciate your kind words and I agree plants are lovely in a listening room! Yes, I take care of them with Sunshine, frequent watering, and plenty of Coltrane!

Your room looks cozy. 

Your plants look healthy.  Are you the one that takes care of them?

I like having plants in my listening area.

Great interior design and a very nice system, I like your eclectic tastes. It never occurred to me to use Herman Miller Eames shelving for an audio rack but now that I've seen it, it's an obviously good application!

Wow an absolutely gorgeous room! Love the floors, the decor, the exposed brick and nice system. The veneer on the Revel's is especially gorgeous.

dougsat yes! I love the space and the sound is quite good. I will be correcting for the room signature using DIRAC Live on my miniDSP Processor this weekend to further enhance the acoustic environment. Thank you for the kind words!

Very cool room and collection of gear. Love the Noguchi table in this space too.  May I ask what the floor lamp is that’s by your couch?
