My living room has a couch, a chair, my record player, record collection, a Mac mini, and my stereo.
Thank you, my tables cool too.
no video or tv in my house, i do have 2 hifi rooms. one thiel, one maggie.
When you consider my user name, you know I approve...although I'm a Glenmorangie man, myself.
Yes. I dedicated my living room for it. Special incantations and blessings, too.
Sort of/Kind of..... I also keep a desktop PC, some guitars, and usually small amp there too.... but the main reason for the room is to 'listen' to my dedicated 2-channel system. Jolida, Rogue, McCormack, Pro-ject, Vandersteen stuff.....
What Vandersteens and Rogue Audio do you have?
I used to have the 2Cs (probably not even the 2Cis) and I have no idea as it has been a long time. I have heard the Vandersteen 3s at my previous dealers place and a friend had some Vandersteen 5s that sounded marvelous.
Just 4 days ago I bought a pair of Rogue Audio M-150s upgraded to M-180s and am still in the honeymoon/evalutaion phase with them.
I have the Rogue 66 Magnum preamp. I run that into the McCormack DNA 1. My Vandys are Series 3a Signature.
My dedicated stereo room is at my neighbor's house. He's absolutely dedicated to kill me with his polka music.
Currently in the process of rebuilding mine...removing an annoying support post,new beam,Quiet Rock drywall,sound barrier,Safe N Sound.
15 X17 with a stupidly low 6'5 ceiling(basement) but I made it work. The room really gets filled with music.
Source-XDS1 Ver.3 SACD player
Pre/Power amps-Marantz Ref. Series...soon to be replaced with Luxman 900 pre/power
Cables-Kubala Sosna Emotion
Synergistic Research Power Cell 12 UEF
Speakers-Gershman Acoustics Grand Avant Garde
MUCH better look and improved imaging now with the rack re-configured horizontally and lower to the ground. Better ventilation for the tubes too!
Yes, my living room, which also contains my 7.1 home theater, which has a 2-channel stereo mode.
My only remaining traditional 2-channel stereo system is in the master bedroom.
And the basement is all about guitar amps and monitors....
In my Yugo.
I used to have my "proper" stereo set up in the office I rent, with some DIY acoustic treatment and all. Sounded great, but it's much more enjoyable to have it in our living room as I can "share" it with my wife and kids. Music should be a social thing, IMO. The room isn't very good (square, plastered walls), but we have carpet on the floor, lots of books and "stuff", so it's not that bad. Plus when I want a late evening listening session, I pull out the speakers for more or less near-field listening anyway.
