70Chevelle's current system

Post by 70chevelle » Thu Nov 17, 2011 10:32 am

While my 45 is getting better, I have the M500 working in it's place. I have to say I'm enjoying the music and also looking forward to the 45 wowing me further. I have my 2 channel system in my theater room. The 2 channel is a Sunfire Classic Tube Control Center with 3 Jan/Philips 6922's, M500, NAD 525Bee, Maverick DAC, and Vandersteen 2C's. (Toshiba Notebook streaming lossless itunes) I made the center channel/component stand. The base(s) are solid 2" thick oak with speaker spikes.

That room looks amazing.

Hey bub, is that room on concrete or on a wood substrate?

Looks like a nice place to relax and forget about the day.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Thanks all. It's in my basement and it's a block foundation. I studded out the walls and covered them with 3/4 birch plywood and painted it the color you see. (I'm color blind :-$ ) I made corner bass traps that you see in the corners which are formed with plywood in a 1/4 circle and filled with cellulose insulation. The floor is concrete with a 1/2" rubber type mat covered with 3/4" plywood and then carpet. My lovely wife and I are in that room every evening and all day Sunday's in the fall watching football. I'm amazed that the Optoma projector I bought in 2006, when I built the room, is still going strong with almost 4000 hours on the bulb. (oops, shouldn't of said that :-$ ) The room started out as my weight room, then it became my kids playroom until they destroyed it. I got the vision and built what you see. They had to fend for themselves elsewhere! :^o

Here's a few pics of my office system.

HK 330i I bought in 1982 (first audio purchase that I coupled with some MCS 2 way speakers and a Technics Tape deck that I sorrowfully no longer have) stacked on top of my Carver HR732. To the right of that stack is my Carver CT6 and SDA360. Listening to a combination of the Doors, the Eagles and Van Morrison as I type. It's playing thru the HK 330i. Not as dynamic as the HR 732, but it's been with me thru high school and college..... what's not to like???
