Frans' SoundScape C center and M7 monitors
« on: 20 Apr 2012, 09:04 pm »
Frans purchased a pair of SoundScape 12's on the used market.  The previous owner had only had them a few months when his wife found out what they cost.  She said either she or the speakers would stay, but not both.  He decided to keep peace in the home and Frans purchased them.

Now it was time for a SoundScape C center and M7's for surround duty.  Of course, they had to match the SS12's.

Here are the M7's...



And the SoundScape C center...



Frans, have a great cinematic experience...

- Jim

Love the look of those! Killer set.

Also really like the new photo method, much sharper and clearer.   :)

Fran - FANTASTIC looking speakers...    Just WOW !!

I tell ya - I never tire of the look of that finish...   

Just downright sexy....   I know you'll love the M7's...

It's always so darned hard to keep my mouth shut when I see speakers in process before the owner gets to see them.  We are very jealous of this system you have now!!

The wait is nearly over! Thank you Jim - I'm sure these will rock my world!

I had to keep the silver gray tiger maple theme going. These will be with me for a long, long time!

Wow, Frans - just amazing.  Please post pictures of the entire setup when it is in place.  As Warpdrv mentioned, I was at his place today listening to his own pair of M7's and they just sounding phenomenal.  Congrats to you, sir!

Hi,

Okay I know where the original owner went wrong?  He didn't get Jim to 'doctor' the receipt and take a few thousand off them.  I do this all the time and its worked really well so far :)

They are a beautiful looking speaker and I hope the owner  enjoys them.

Regards

Rod

Really looking forward to the complete set. Should arrive on Friday, yay!

My next move will have to be figuring out how to acoustically treat my room, I'm still trying to figure out where to start!  :oops:

Congratulations Frans, you're finish inspired me.  I've ordered SS8s in a bird's eye curly maple with silver gray finish!

As far as room treatment, I just submitted floor plan and photos to Auralex.  They have a free evaluation/recommendation service (for their products obviously).  Submitted Sunday - haven't heard anything yet though.

And they are masterpieces!  The 10/12s remind me of locomotive engines!  From the photos of your new speakers, the finish does live up to them.  What are you powering them with?

There's a lot to like about this amp, gobs of power and it's silent like a tomb (both the device and the speakers when nothing's happening). The price/wattage is pretty hard to beat and build quality is great. Granted, I don't have any other amps to hook up, so I cannot tell how this would sound against, say, an Anthem P5 or Bryston 9B SST2. The other day I popped in the eponymous Dire Straits debut (definitely a reference SACD) and the plentiful power on tap just riveted me to my seat... :drool:  Yeah, that's what it's all about!  I have an audiophile friend (ok, my only audiophile friend) who has Von Schweikert VR-4 SR MKII speakers running off dual mono tube amps and speaks highly of them, so I am expecting an awesome experience when/if I get to hear them. It will help me determine a better frame of reference.

Hook them all up and play "Transformers", then a whole bunch of music, then after you repair all the cracks in your plaster and the house resettles you'll have a good baseline to start from!   LOL!!!! Thats my favorite veneer so far whats the technical name of it for ordering purposes someday??? These get 5 dancing sunglass guys  :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Yeah, after Transformers - sound treatment will be the least of my worries!

The "technical" name for this treatment is: Silver Gray Tiger Maple (with full veneer front baffle).
