    I don't see the humor. Just face your back towards the bricks and swing away from the wall...

    Ken, are those custom shelves for the vinyl?

    The salmon colored shelves were built when I lived in Baltimore. The black ones are from Ikea, we added metal feet and a masonite back. Here are some early photos when we first moved here showing the transplant shelves after we repainted them.wji4wjl7no35.jpg

    My wife photoshopped a representation of what everything might look like. We ended needing two more of the Ikea shelves to fit the records. Plus several other record shelves that we also brought from Baltimore.

    As so often (and so unfortunately) seems to happen to real experts when they show up on enthusiast forums, he got picked at by some folks who didn't agree with/accept certain of his positions, so he moved along. Danged shame, IMO. He is a fine fellow based on my interactions with him (which have mostly concerned photography, amusingly enough).

    These photos show how the record storage finally turned out, the area behind the listening area are six shorter record cabinets.
    Very classy presentation! 🤩

    Yay. :/

    We've been seeing this one twice a day for three or four days now. Don't like seein' 'em in the daytime. They're not supposed to be out in the daytime... but this one does not seem to be sick (i.e., rabid -- sheesh, did I really type rabbit, or did Autocorrect see me comin'? :| ). Seems to be feeding; maybe supporting a brood?

    Ouch!

    Ken, is your listening area on a slab in the new digs?

    Very nice room!

    Is it just an optical illusion, or does the ceiling slope up towards the speakers?

    Ken, the room looks great, however I think you might need a few more records.

    Ken,
    You and your wife have done a great design and decorating job on that "audio" space.

    I meant to ask you this when I first saw the Shoji screens at the end of the room. Is that an end wall the screens are covering? And what is behind regarding the lighting?

    Did the Ikea shelves come with the legs or did you put metal legs on the Ikea shelves?

    You mentioned Baltimore; what city/state do you live now, if I may ask?

    Glad you remain a dedicated member of this forum!

    "I meant to ask you this when I first saw the Shoji screens at the end of the room. Is that an end wall the screens are covering? And what is behind regarding the lighting?"
    Hi Harry,
    The previous owner maintained an office in the basement and built the screens as part of the design. There are four flood lamps, two on each side, behind it attached to a rheostat. There is a 2' space to a solid wall behind with a pocket door to another room. In the between space are shelves on either side, I keep some spare audio components and a complete collection of Audio Amateur and Glass Audio magazines. On the other side of the pocket door I have the air compressor and record cleaning stuff set up and model train.

    "Did the Ikea shelves come with the legs or did you put metal legs on the Ikea shelves?"

    We sourced some nice metal legs from Amazon.

    "You mentioned Baltimore; what city/state do you live now, if I may ask?"

    We moved to Hagerstown, MD. and really like the town and people. I'm originally from Cumberland, MD. (about an hour west) and at the time my mother was still there. We picked it because it was partway between there and Baltimore and have found it to be very agreeable. My wife is active in the local art museum and there are some really good restaurants (hopefully soon to be reopened).

    The Tandberg 64 is correct, Mark.
