I can make up the Cary pre, but boy that's one awesome looking man cave you got there. With a setup that that why even bother to go to the big screen.

No.  They are RPG Skylines.  They came painted to match the wall color!

 

Having Rob here was a blast.  I needed his seal of approval on the room before labeling it a success.  I played DJ as we played multiple digital selections before going to vinyl, which sealed the deal.

What a listening room. I wonder did it take long to get the room set up like that? What speakers are those if ye don't mind me asking? 

 

The construction took a couple months and then it took 3 more to do all the room treatments.  Kudos to Jeff Hedback on his work and design.

It's a smashing success. I don't get to have that level of music and audio fun all that often since - I of course get to enjoy my own systems, which I do, but rarely do I get to enjoy great music on a great system with an audio buddy biggrin.gif It was awesome.

Congrats David, it looks impressive. So euh, when can I come over? I'll just sleep in that couch for a week, I won't bother you too much. Maybe get Clayton there too.

 

:rolleyes:

Lieven, you have an open invitation. And, you get a bed too.  We have several extras now that the kids have their own places.

Hope you are able to fly soon and have a safe trip, my colleagues told me that is kind of warm in Chicago today.  Mid 20s...

David, what amp are you running with your SLP-05?

post #8395 of 10993

That is a seriously awesome looking audio room, dminches.  I am feeling almost as green as your wall and sound treatments!

Rob

Thanks for the nice wright up on the amp. I try my best to make the best sounding amps.

 

David

I see you popped off the shield's on the C3gs  Has it changed the sound?

The GAPE sounded absolutely terrific with the LCD-3. There is a delicacy and detail to the treble that was otherworldly. The bass weight was also colossal, while still being very well defined and controlled. In both these respects if bested my great love the Leben CS-300 (which Dave also has one of, conveniently located right next to the GAPE). Glenn's amp is a top tier headphone amp, no doubt.

One more pic:



That said, it was Dave's unbelievable speaker stereo which was the real treat. Very few have ever heard music reproduced in their home this well. It was astonishing.

wow!!!!!!

How much did you run those C3g's David?  They were NOS, never used so they needed a good 24 hours to settle.

You too.

 

Remember, I am not in NY, but in South Jersey, outside Philly.

I am using a pair of Cary SA-500.1 monoblocks.  Those 5As need a lot of juice.  The Carys are up to the task.
