:wink_face: Hmmm, an evening at Charlie Trotter's or CrazyRay's? Well presented, CrazyRay...

I've seen pictures of it before, but that room is probably still the nicest looking one I've seen pictures of here...

Hi Jeep. I had no idea TV was so important to Dutch folk...

 

I posted the pics for The Silent One because I knew they matched his aesthetic and the system is Shindo drive!

I am so worried his Sinhonias will puke if he feeds them a load from his 90's loaner KEFS :eek:!

Most importantly the Silent One has a folding tea table and no need for superfluous furnishings in his listening space.

 

BTW the guy is moving cross country and selling everything. He saved the stereo for last so he could listen till the end. Give him a break!

 

Your sentiments warm me :wink:, thanks for the holiday spirit. My mono blocks push the KEFs or the not so efficient HE-6 like a walk in the park.

I find your comment puzzling. I do not intend to offend anyone. Maybe you shouldn't be offended so easily? My comment was just an observation and I started off with two compliments. The room looks like a museum. Not like there are any music around, children, or people... The room also reminds me of those audioshows in hotels and conference centres. Million dollar setups that no-one can afford. Or a zen garden that no-one is alowed to walk in. It looks lifeless, incomplete, setup for a photo. Just like I make product photographs. That's all.

Sure I like a tidy room, but my livingroom is a living-room. And yes, that includes watching tv. I need the screen to see what I am playing on my HTPC. Playing LP's is nice for attentive listening but I like playing background-music too. I don't want to go back and forth flipping discs every 15 mins. Playing flacs is much more convenient and with better quality and less hassle than cd's (or some lp's ftm). I really, really like playing vinyl. But I have difficulty accepting that it would be anyones only medium. I mean; this is the 21st century. Playing cd's is sooo last century. LP's are cool, but cumbersome and delicate at the same time.

I like the turntable in the setup. Brinkman? biggrin.gif

No doubt, but they are whispering to you (in Japanese): "we are your humble servants master, please acquire a pair of LaTours so that we can please you better....

<ALT>

 honestly yours are my favorite Shindos (the Aurieges too - so clean and compact). The oil cans on the Sinhonia are precious!

So it doesn't suit how you like to listen to music.  Doesn't make it bad, or wrong or whatever.

 

I'm sure it's possible to go and do other things while there's music playing on that system too...

It so happens, the very first time I heard my Sinhonia's, they were leashed up to the LaTour field coils. My appointment to go pick up my gear included a listening session for a few hours of vinyl at the studio. I listened to LaTours/300B mono block pairing the first hour. Then we swapped-in my Sinhonia's for the next few hours... a fun afternoon!

It would be nice if you could accept that other people do things differently than you without criticizing them for it.  It's unfortunate that you need a screen in your living room in order to see what you're playing.  I just look at the record jacket next to me, nice big print with large nifty art work.  I'm glad, no, really, that you're so 21st century.  Actually, we all are whether we want to be or not, flac or no flac.:smile:

Maybe not for the first month or two...

No one has a man cave with two walls of windows except C-Ray!

Who says I don't? And how is criticising bad? Positive criticism is just as much criticism as negative or neutral comments. So I can't look at a picture and say what I think? Why should anybody be offended by what I think? You are giving me way too much credit for a casual remark. What's next? People are being offended when I call those speakers brown?

Tastes evolve. Lifestyles change. Everyone (almost) has a television. The photo we are talking about looks artificial, I don't buy it the owner never plays anything but lp's (is this grammatically correct?). Magritte: this is not a pipe. I see a painting... Call me ignorant? That's your opinion free to express. I know I'm not (most of the time wink.gif ).

It's unfortunate that you need a screen in your living room in order to see what you're playing.
Actually, what I do when I want to look at the artwork is I take the LP of what I'm playing. Or look at the tv when I have it on and flip the pictures. But I wonder what you are looking at right now.... isn't that a screen just the same? Or should I write you a paper letter? One does not exclude the other.

Reading back I am wondering if my English is correct. Carries the right meaning. By "No optical disc player, no media player, no tv, no coffee table. No life." I do not mean to say the owner doesn't 'have a life' as the expression goes, but just that the room looks lifeless, devoid of life, without signs or traces of cohabitation. There are drawbacks in speaking English as a third language. Sometimes I don't catch a meaning. Sometimes I am literal when you read implied meaning. Etc. I'd like to see you write in Dutch, German, French, Spanish or Italian and make no mistake.

@ CrazyRay
I love that Eames loungechair. And how everything is in style. That takes a lot of discipline.

You did kinda say there's "no life" in a system without a screen.  Noone's putting words in your mouth.

 

Everyone (almost) has a TV.  But must it be part of your hi-fi system?  Quite a few people enjoy listening to their high end audio rigs without the distractions of other things.  Not really your place to call them out on it.

Not to be a snob but shouldn't quote Magritte so often unless you own a Magritte. 

Here's mine:

I'm just sayin'...

That was kinda my first experience as well. My ex-dealer's shop in Hong Kong...300B into the LaTour. I was so lucky I was moving back to the US and it was the wrong voltage because I was ready to sell my car (after I drove it home)! :biggrin:

Years later I saw/heard the Sinhonia at a friends and wow, to me, that's the nicest looking amp he's ever made. I'm just sayin'...
