Finally moved house.
« on: 29 Jun 2024, 05:46 pm »
Just enjoying music for the first time in about 2 weeks, just moved house and I have been painting / decorating, and the Hi-Fi was packed away.

Just beginning to put the Hi-Fi back together, still need to finish setup which is why you can see tape on the floor. Waiting for a rug to arrive etc, still nice to be able to enjoy a bit of music after not having the stereo for a while.

I was worried as to what the system will sound like with a lot of hard surfaces and wooden floor etc, until I had had a chance to treat some of the surfaces etc. I needn’t had worried. I have to say this is the best my system has ever sounded, even though the setup is not complete. Having more room to play with is nice. Being able to get the speaker well away from the boundaries has really helped. The speakers are sitting 2.1M from the front wall, 2.3M apart and 1M from the sidewalls. I am sitting 2.5M away from the speakers.

We'll be moving soon.  The new place is closer to kids and doctors, cuter, and smaller.  The new listening room will be a definite down-grade (smaller, windows, only partially insulated).  But my ears aren't what they used to be either.

That looks great.
That area where you put the rack looks made for it.
That's probably why you bought the place.

SteveFord, that space worked out perfectly.  :green: The big-ish room is one of the reasons i bought the place.  :thumb:

Spent a bit more time dialling in the system. I now have a rug between me and the speakers. Changed out the feet that came with the speaker to my normal Symposium Rollerblock Jr’s.
I also added some GIK acoustic panels I had from my previous room. I will live with this arrangement for a while and see how I feel, before I change anything else around.

The room / rest of the house is still working in progress, since I am back at work, I only have evenings and weekends to work in the house. I don’t always want to do any work after a day’s work and some weekends I want to do something else.

Couple of pictures from my sitting position and from the speaker position.

I am really enjoying my music more. I am re-discovering my music; it’s amazing that the only thing that has changed is the room but it sounds like a much better system. I have always maintained the room is a good 50% of what you hear.  8)
