weitrhino's moveable audio feast

The Plats are about 3 feet from the sidewalls, 4 feet from the rear and are toed toward the geographic center of the room which is about 19x27. From the vantage point of the first pic there are couches on either side which angle toward the rear center of the room. There's about 18" of space to the rear of the coffee table/rack. Under the left side of the table is a Powervar power conditioner running all the components, the amps are powered directly from the wall. My Pioneer multidisc player stayed with my HT setup so I had to drag out the old Apex cd player. It has a fair amount of mechanical noise but it will have to do until the Oppo BDP-93 comes my way. The system has already changed since I took these pics. A TX-11b has replaced the TX-11a. In this new room I still have no proper listening chair, but when one arrives the components will move to a small rack within arms reach to the side with only the amps remaining on the table. Until then there's no space for the TT.

I'll have to come up there and help you get those speakers set up right though. Way too much toe-in.
Please tell me that triple light isn't for a pool table ?!?! ](*,)

I've been playing with the toe-in a bit, but until I have a properly placed comfortable chair nothing is set in stone. As for the light, there probably was a pool table there once. It is a 19x27 rec room and we've only been here since August. No telling what the room was used for before.

Looking good. =D> Those are the distances I settled on from the walls. Agree with Toymaker on toe-in. I had mine aimed right at listening position. My Plat 4's were highly directional, as witnessed by my DB meter.

Having said that, let your ears decide. :rolleyes: That is what makes this fun, seeking audio nirvana.

Love the look of the tube amps. Very clean set-up. \:D/

That's a beautiful set-up. Is 180 per sufficient to drive the ALS? 19x27 room, eh? That's a huge space, very nice.

Oh yes, 180 does the job nicely with tube power. Quite nicely indeed. As for the room dimensions, it feels a bit smaller due to the angled wall to ceiling, the measurements taken at the floor.

Those tubes look beautiful - and I bet the sound is even better!
