Wow Coke, that is a beautiful room. Love the wood and high ceilings.

Og, do you think that the plants that you have behind the speakers help with the sound?   My speakers have been in three different rooms. They sounded best in a room with some plants behind them in a similar room as yous. Although it was also a situation where the speakers were further from the wall. Just curious on you opinion.

Supposedly the plants add some diffusion, but I have no idea if they really work for that. We put the plants there to break up the look of the acoustic panels and add a bit of color. I never A/B tested the sound difference. It would have been hard to tell at the time since I was messing with the SS8's open grill and poly fill stuffing when we added the plants.

Great looking system and setup Greg

The acoustic treatments blend in very well, even the wicker touch to get them up off the ground

What type of speaker feet are you using?

Nice job

Thanks Tom.

coke      Nice size room,is that a house or a cottage? Sure wish i had a room like that.Does all that wood paneling make the room live or well dampened?

Thanks for all the positive comments!

I'm not exactly sure of the difference between a house & a cottage. It's on 5 acres (can't see any neighbors), 1.5 stories, insulated shop with attic, small pond, storage shed, rock fire pit, large deck on first floor and smaller on 2nd floor, private mountain bike trail, an outdoor RC track, 3 room, 2 bath, and it's less than 20 minutes from work.  The wood seems to help dampen the sound. 

Here's a few more pics.  Sorry for the off topic post.

Very nice Coke

You forgot to mention the excellent stone work
Now fill those shelves with some lps

I would think the high ceiling would play a role in the dampening of the sound

Being single does indeed have it's perk

Nice place Coke! 

I've had a hell of a time finding a good room in my house to set up my 2 channel system, but here's what it looks like now:





You'd think in a 3400 sf house I'd have a better room I could put them in, but they've ended up in the living room.  I'm not happy but that's where my wife wants them!  Unfortunately as well I don't have much time anymore to sit and enjoy listening to music.

I prefer to have them in the living room. Mine get a lot more use throughout the day than they would in a dedicated listening room.

Just moved to a new house and had to split up my 7.1 into a 2.0 and 5.1.  Still haven't setup the 5.1 but, here is the 2.0 setup in my living room/office/dinning room/kitchen.  Unfortunately, I do have to close all the blinds for a serious listen.




And, just to get an idea of the room...

Updated photos to show how nicely the STs get along with the 65" plasma that forced its way between them. Also shown are some new DIY audio cables. Solid silver PTFE insulated speaker cables and solid bleached cotton insulated RCAs for CD audio. This was my first time assembling cables - very happy with the end result. Sliders are from Herbie's.

Beautiful! I ordered the same ones. Great shots and I'm guessing, and hoping mine look as good as those. Wow.

Shouldn't be too much longer!

In fact, I was looking at rugs and yours looks identical to the one I'm considering. Do you remember where you got it? Nice, clean and simple. Love it. You have great taste! ;)

Thank you for the compliments. The rug was handed down from the in-laws when they redid their kitchen and sitting room, so I haven't the slightest where it originally came from. Good luck with your new Salks!

This photo was taken late in the afternoon. Morning sun would provide for a better photo, but we haven't had much of that lately.
