Since pictues of our houses were posted. Let's post pictures of our entertainment rooms.
God! You must be single!
Here's what I got....
Hey!!! I bet I got more Bigfoot Barleywine that you!...
The System as it is now...
................... signed by Keith, Greg, and Carl!
So; as a married man, I have 3 entertainment rooms, really.
As soon as mine is finished (installing new speakers), I'll post a pic.
I never get tired of this.....
Love the El-Rayo Ex LP cover! I just picked up a mint used copy this weekend.
Yeah! Both you and Scott have great set-ups! Very, very nice! And; basements! 'Haven't seen those in years!!
Dood! I thought I had a kick-Azz TV but yours is the ####!!! mega!
Whoa!!!! What is your system? Looks Sweet!!!!
By the way, I grew up in Indy. Graduated from Broad Ripple. And; lived in Lawrence, and Carmel.
I seem to wind up in the Broad Ripple neighborhood when I go to Indy for the F1 or Brickyard race.Cool Place.
I picked up the Beatles CD EP Collection in a record store on College Ave.I like Indy.
Here is my setup in my apartment. Since my room is so narrow (grrrr...) I can't get far enough back to take a picture from the sweet spot.
EDIT: The coffee mug in the shot has no liquid in it!! It is filled with lose change. See post below.
Joe: I like your speaker stands!
They do the trick. They are more solid than any speaker stand. No resonance of any kind.
And I never get tired of that Lowell George album you have on the wall
Like the coffee cup balanced precariously on top of your system.
It actually does not have coffee in it! It has lose change in it. It is there to help dampen vibrations. Works like a champ. The block of teak adds some weight to the CD transport, and also isolates it from the DAC. The weight of the change helps dampen any vibrations between the components. I don't like to stack components, but due to constant moves at this stage in my life, my system must be able to pack up as easily as possible, and having a nice hifi rack is really not an option.
Copper or silver coins?
Joe, those notes above your turntable...were they left on your door by neighbors?
Here is my room Lps and CD in storage room off to the side of the sound room....
That would be funny if they were. Not funny for the neighbors though. I had only one note left on my door the entire time I lived in apartment buildings (which finally ended last summer). It was a very angry letter.
BTW Joe, that's a lovely collection of vintage gear you have there. I bet it's sounds lovely.
What are those 2 things on your wall behind your speakers?
Yes, our neighbors are very funny. They are good friends. The apartment that I live in is actually Columbia College's on campus housing. I live on a "loud floor" so quiet hours don't begin until 11:00 on weekdays. There are no quiet hours on weekends on my floor.
We live in a two-room townhouse so the downstairs room became the 'music room'. It also doubles as a guest room, that funky couch thing folds down into a bed. Firm but comfortable. The shelves on the left hold LPs that don't quite fit in the closet, CDs on the 'rotation list', old radios and things, and various other items that just sort of end up there. The closet on the far right is the 'media room'.
Pardon the clutter, I'm that way. My g/f did such a great job organizing everything and I just go in and tear it all up! The 45s on the floor are from a huge box of radio promos, mostly 80s stuff, that I'm slowly transferring to CD-R. I set up my old Technics with a Stanton cart to play the 45s for that 'radio station' sound I remember.
The other photo is from the opposite end. The piano was made in 1922 by Baldwin in Chicago but sold under another brand (amazing what kind of info you can find on the 'net!). The computer desk was a neat thrift store find, along with the weird chair. BTW, there's a great poster of The Jayhawks from the Hollywood Town Hall album hiding behind the door.
Inside the 'media room', LPs on the left there and VHS & DVDs at right on top shelves, CDs and SACDs on the lower shelves. All filled up.
Separate names with a comma.
