  1. It has taken me most of this morning, but it has been an interesting journey through all the listening chairs throughout the Wam. It raises confidence that although Hifi outlets are a dying breed, the consumer demand for quality music systems is alive and well. It’s nice to know that most people face the same challenges of trying to get the best out of their systems, within the constraints of domestic dwellings. Some extremely difficult shaped rooms, and lack of available space, have been overcome with great ingenuity. I admit I have an obsession of listening to music, no matter what room I am in. (Even the throne room has a ceiling speaker). With this in mind, I post three main views from my listening chairs. First one is my main system, where I spend most of my evenings, or “relaxing time”. Second is in the main lounge, usually for mornings. Third is the view from my other listening chair, normally for afternoons, while watching the birds, and watching the garden grow. I’ve got plans in my mind for garden improvements next spring and onwards. Better late than never.

  3. With the amount of light that comes through the south facing patio door I have had to wait for a dull day to be able to take a reasonable picture and this is it. The inner verticals of the speakers 6 feet apart, 9 feet from the rear wall, 9 feet from my chair with another 11 feet behind the chair. 50 feet behind the doors is the beach and 100 feet beyond the beach is the Solent.

  4. Hmm, yes, a good point raised by jkb; the view from my other main listening chair. The Headphones Spot in our rather nice conservatory.

  5. Hah, finally, success. I've sussed out how to take panorama pics. I've only got a small brain so it's taken me a while Not a great photo, but it gives you an idea of my main system view.

  9. Mental Notes - Split Enz. Vinyl. Being an antipodean, Split Enz has always been in my consciousness, but I've never until now owned any. Not sure why. This is amazing. If you are a fan of Roxy Music, Peter Gabriel, Sparks etc do yourself a favour...

  24. So you're going to be changing your id to loesteem? Personally, I like to live in a cluttered mess, and I'd be really uncomfortable in many of the ultra tidy Show Rooms on display here. We're all different, be proud to be yourself!

  25. Admittedly, my original post played up the sneakiness. In fact it originated from a suggestion by my wife. We are lucky in having a second larger living space - an open plan kitchen/ diner and seating area, but this was mainly used in the daytime. By moving the comfiest sofa in there from the living room, installing the best TV in the house and fixing the lighting to make it a cozy night time space, my wife is very happy to let me have the living room for music in the evenings. If you have the room, it is worth considering if an agreeable compromise can be reached.

  28. As I've said earlier it may have got lost now but I did use the original silly putty with great results but I just fancied something a bit less garden shed and having had many years of success with Audio Technica products they did the very thing. And is washable too. Santa Stocking Filler.

  31. I can have all the systems and set ups I need, however when the little darlings have a sleep over (Grandchildren) then I have to result this. Tiny music room sleeps one of Nan’a precious, and I get told “is that necessary to have the main system on” Nasty Nana

  38. 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...
