Aural Enlightenment 2, a Two-channel Audio System by Big Red Machine

(Untitled)
Room Size
12.5 feet wide, 9 ft high, 32 feet deep
System Overview
New digs and a side by side two channel and HT rack set-up. Concentration is fully on the two channel and I am achieving very high levels of performance after months of testing and tweaking.
Music Preferences
Anything except rap, country, and the standard fair poorly recorded R&R.
Room Description
Lots of windows to deal with and not much wall area for treatment so I applied heavy doses of diffusors in the drop ceiling and front wall. Works very well in bringing the sound out onto your ears from the sides.
Acoustic Treatment
Diffusion and more diffusion.
Listening Impressions
Exceptional clarity with no boominess.
Media Storage
HAL MS-2 windows 8 music server and JRiver.
Other Comments
I don't allow the HT gear to pollute the 2 channel sound, so no HT bypass for me. I connect the HT speaker cables or 2 channel speaker cables as needed keeping the systems completely independent.
