    almost symmetrical -- but those two downleads on the left-hand side must drive those with OCD nuts.

    It's a promo pic from Gregitek, an Italian audio company that specializes in vibration control products. The rack, speaker stands, cable risers, cables and power blocks are theirs.

  • Those cables must be as big as a garden hose. I wonder what they weigh.

    No pictures as there is like components on the rack, the floor just crap everywhere. If I have a clean setup then I feel unhappy about being limited as I love listening to diff combos for diff music.

    Love that room Mark. What a great place to hang out and pretty much lose the whole day pooping around with audio gear. Out of curiosity what are the dimensions?

    26 x 26 (not ideal, but at least the ceiling's not flat).
    If I could've talked Mrs. H into a three-car garage, it could have been acoustically better proportioned ;)

    Rekkids at my house are kind of like an iceberg; more of them below grade than upstairs :)

    Dang Mark, obsessive disorder ? lol

    Don't ya spend time grading papers anymore ? I envision you grading papers like Fred Clause stamping all the letters "nice", so you have time for your audio obsessions.

    Looks nice and inviting though.....speakers look a tad too toed in for the sitting distance to me or is that the optical illusion thing ?

    The semester -- is -- over! :)
    Papers graded, grades entered.
    Headin' out later to pick up our son, or, as I like to call him, "The Other Dr. Hardy" :) at the aerodrome.

    Good times.

    I have generally used the Duplexes toed in to focus the image a few feet in front of me. The result is actually pretty impressive with coaxial drivers.
