12 1/2' X 17 2/3' X 8'
Redbook CD based all solid state gear (with adjunct planar headphone setup employing dual-differential source and amplification w/ XLR interconnects). No tubes, no vinyl.
Classical primarily but also electro-acoustic free improv and occasionally some Grateful Dead
Average sized family room with a large thick wool rug and large picture window along one side.
Convoluted foam-Egg Crate Acoustic Studio Soundproofing for rear wall (a hugely beneficial tweak!)
According to the Audio Science Review website, my DAC measures like crap with high THD+noise. So, maybe not the most transparent sound reproduction on the planet, but it sounds pretty good to me. Better than any gear I've ever owned anyway.
With roughly 8,000 Redbook CD's, I'm pretty much committed to a CD player as my source. I've looked into converting everything to flac files and going the music server route, but the task turns out to be just too daunting and/or expensive. Plus I just really love browsing through all my discs.
