Beautiful place Mazzy.
And there is a gap behind the couch, not right up against the railing.
Also I don't want to spend your money or add to your design aesthetic but you could always add something like this or narrow slats of wood from your half wall up to the ceiling. Light would still come through and it was add another layer of safety. And then you could watch tv while cooking.
It's only money
Maz, that is absolutely the coolest room ever, how lucky are you to have that! I have always lived in homes with wasted rooms, I like to call them show rooms, no one ever goes in there except when company comes or on holidays. I could be totally happy in your one room with the kitchen, oh my, so open, airy, light, the perfect place for some great music or a movie with 15 guests, so nice, and everyone needs an RCA dog, hearing his master's voice!
Hey thank you. I personally hate a room you can't use regularly and this one is always used. Great for listening on my own and with friends and parties. It's a great space with beautiful light during the day. Which s a good thing in Seattle.
Audiophiles will see it as a compromise, and yes it is, but as much as I enjoy good sound, the music is primary to me in terms of continuous buying of records-I'm not a gear head and my systemy is considered mid level I guess. But is sounds really nice.
Except for my upgraded Rega RP6 which I got almost three years ago, I haven't upgraded anything since I bought it all in 2002/3 in San Francisco. Rotel and B&W CMs. However I am now auditioning new speakers. Really like ProAcs but probably more than I want to spend. Just also listened to the new B&W 700 series speakers and really liked them even though they were only on the floor for several days-not even broken in. I am personally a fan of the B&W sound. Maybe because I've owned several pairs for almost 30 years, so the new 702S2 is at the top of my list. The white ones would fit well in this room as the looks are so important to me. I guess I am superficial.
Probably want these:
Nice pad Mazzy
Mazzy, what are those crates for the records?
I you are referring to the wire flip through racks behind the sofa then they are these. I use them for new releases and my lounge cool cover albums to the left of the fireplace. Package Deal: 2 Bin-e LP Storage w 2 FREE Groovemats and 25 FREE Inner Sleeves
Those speakers would look fantastic in your ultra room, and as for the audiophiles opinions on the space, who cares, I would be so comfortable listening in that darn room, I would never leave the house, you are so very fortunate to have a room so
spacious and open, breathing room. Hey, I have one more possibility, as I am a total B&W fan, you could skip a few big nights on the town, put a few extra bucks into these, and just be the envy of the audio community, oh yes!
Apologies for the De-Rail...I love this thread also! Carry On!
Ha. Yea I'm sure they would work out nicely. What are there, around 20K plus? And I would probably need a new amp as well to power these.... ca ching!
Oh, I would call about 10 dealers and find someone that would take about 35% off, I'm rather good at that! Oh, if the 800 series might be too big, here is another speaker that would be right at home in your beautiful spacious room, oh yes it would! Suppose to be some of the best engineering work Dave Wilson and his son have cranked out. In regard to a new amp, that integrated in the middle of the B&W's should work out nicely for you.
Sorry but these here are butt ugly. Just my personal opinion. Your mileage may vary. Last time I wrote those words a Gort spanked me
Ooh! Just went there..the link.....I'm diggin the wall mount version!
I got spanked by a Gort here once,...but I deserved it....and he was cool.
Are you saying you don't like the Wilson's in white???
I love them!
Oh ....maybe you mean the B&W's??????
I don't think I like them in any color. But I bet they sound great.
Mazzy, think of them as Wilson works of art. I do think with this loudspeaker you have to put your hands on it to appreciate the work that went into it. It's just a piece of beautiful technology, and you can bet it's as good as it gets. I always waited for this company to use a veneer wood on their products, but it just never happened. While I don't like them as much as the B&W 800 series, it easily matches the B&W quality, different but one of the best loudspeakers possible, IMHO.
What's the name of those Wilson's? The last ones I heard were the Sophia's about 12 years ago.
What do they cost ? $$$$
What do you think?
I have only listened to a few favorite songs, I'm too tired and hungry to get into a full fledged audition. But what I have heard I like: huge dynamics and realistic presentation of environmental sounds. On the Focal test CD is a recording of a single cylinder motorcycle which was reproduced in stunning fashion. Also enjoyed the drum sounds on "South side of the sky" the remastered version this time around.
My newly updated system. Blowing my mind nightly. Its been a great road. The last is my first music only system in my new house 11 years ago.
