  1. Awful phone pic, but I'm too busy listening to get the proper camera out

  2. Lights normally dimmer for listening. No hifi in sight other than speakers and it would be better if I couldn’t see them! We are listening to Purrcell; naturally.

  8. Strangely : this is not my favourite position , although it is probably the best music wise , I like to sit at the bar behind , with one elbow on the worktop and one holding a whiskey.

  9. My system has completely changed apart from the Esoteric Preamplifier and this is my version of musical nirvana.I've had my own listening room for over ten years now & can't imagine trying to fit everything that I have gathered in that time back into a shared space.

  12. As an architect friend of mine always said; “Keep it simple”! I’ll post another pic when I receive my new speakers.

  13. Poor photos as the lighting in my room is quite difficult. I usually listen at night as I find it quite overwhelming during the day, there is so much going on that the system demands your full attention. The speakers take you to a different world that really burys you in the music and washes the day away.

  14. What a brilliant idea for a thread. Today I wound down by listening to a fabulous gift from Mike @stylesound on the Systemdek>Pioneer Urushi>Celef LS8's. Great to get reacquainted with these babies after mainly listening elsewhere. I continue to be amazed by what these tiny speakers are capable of. With apologies for subdued lighting, taken by subdued listener.

  15. This used to be the lounge, but when we added an extension to the back we decided to use that mostly, so I 'converted' the lounge to a 'music and film' room. The LPs are to my left and the majority of CDs to my right. However, as all the CDs have been ripped, they tend not to be used and stay in the cupboard out of site.

  16. Here’s my system of DIY,low power SET amplifier and DIY, 98dB single driver speakers with aperiodic bass loading. The ports fire downwards beneath the cabs. Turntable is a BTE designs Lenco L75 with 60s retro paint job, 70s SME arm and equally 70s Empire 999SEx MM cartridge. Phono stage is a MoFi Studiophono, CD player is an ancient Philips CD371 and DAC for the streamer is a Topping E30 with 5V regulated linear power supply.

  17. There's some very inspiring systems here. As there seems to be an absence of Quads here's mine!

  19. Had a lot of changes lately as was trying to downsize/downgrade. A lot of gear will have to go unfortunately. Turntable is waiting to be setup next.

  26. And so the Posselts don't get jealous, one from "the other place": still only an iPhone which makes the anglepoise light look like it dazzles (hence switched off for pic) though it doesn't. *for the OCDers: sorry. The speakers are equidistant from centre, honest, I obviously slouched!

  28. The fact that I can easily slide these speakers back to the rear wall when they are not in use and the fact they have a very small footprint, makes our living space very flexible…thank goodness.

  29. Nice thread. I really enjoyed looking at all the pictures of rooms and setups. Here’s mine. Forgive the “mood” lighting. For some reason, I prefer listening with the lights low.

  30. From the chair in the lounge…. And the one in the man cave. I can only apologise for this one - the room’s in a right mess currently!

  32. Couldn't leave him there. Took me six weeks to get near enough to catch him. He ended up lying in the middle of a road junction and I had to lie in the road near him for an hour, flicking pieces of cheese and tempting him ever closer. Caught him with my last piece. My wife and her friend were each side, directing incredulous Madeira drivers around me. Not a task to be taken lightly, I can tell you. He’s spent 15 months in local kennels until our house was built (couldn’t have him in our rented apartment). Won’t let me out his sight now. What sight he has, anyway. None in one eye and a bit in the other. Almost no teeth and a bad heart. He’s very old but what time he has will be comfortable.

  33. Trying the long wall of my small rectangular room and as I'm so nearfield to the Quads it seems to be OK so far. (Need to do a bit of cable tidying once I'm happy). I've not tried the stereo subs since getting my new amplifier as I'm getting some extra bass already switching from SS to valves. They might be better on the outside of the speakers, but hey, I like experimenting and changing the sound now and then.

  35. Ideally I would have the speakers out from from the walls but it’s a multifunctional room.

  36. View from the listening seat, a pair of Q Acoustics Concept 500s sitting on top of Townshend Seismic Podiums, the "stereo" is housed behind the listening chair , out of site if not mind.

  37. Hardly the ideal "listening room" arrangement, but without a dedicated room, compromise is inevitable! The Eagle eyed will have noticed the two wooden bowls carefully placed on top of the speaks for the best acoustic effect - night and day, inky blacks, etc...

  38. A better photo. CDs are to the right, in a corner. There's a small LP stand to the left I use for albums in current rotation. All my LPs and tapes are stored upstairs in my 'art room'.
