    I just made the move yesterday afternoon and haven't had much seat time since. I haven't noticed any ill affects yet...I'm sure there will be some smearing, but the Center Image has improved considerably. I had all the gear on one taller rack previously, now that the Image is much "cleaner" and a little deeper as the Rack is more "out of the way".

    I think white speakers can look really sweet in the right setting. I dig the looks of this new model from Monitor Audio (Silver 500) - have not heard them though:

    Your system is awesome. That said, you could probably improve imaging and soundstage if you move the speakers out in to the room a bit.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for this post! I'm currently trying to sell my mother's home and everybody kept telling me that her wallpaper had to go if I really wanted to sell it. So, this week I have professional wallpaper removers taking down the wallpaper in four rooms and now I have to find a "neutral" color (often used word by Realtors, as if they know anything?) to paint all of these rooms to attract a buyer. A tan or light beige color seems to be the place that we all seem to agree is the way to go and after seeing the photo of the room above with that Benjamin Moore Linen White, I believe that we may now have a winner! Well, that it is, until the guy that is painting the room tells me that they don't use Benjamin Moore paints. LOL. They seem to wear Sherwin Williams work pants, so who knows?

    Tell him that whoever paints your room will be using Benjamin Moore, and to include the extra $15 a gallon to the bid. He's wearing Sherwin Williams clothes because they comp them t shirts and heavily discount the price of pants. The extra cost for paint will be well worth it, Sherwin Williams is all name, check out Consumer Reports on paint. I have been a painter for 40 years.

    Here's where I'm at with the orange room right now...

    My plan is to keep the orange (I'm getting used to it), but I'm gonna paint the trim (indented bottoms of the walls, window sill, baseboard heater) Ben Moore Linen White. I think that will be enough to soften the effect.

    The orange isn't quite as radioactive in real life as the earlier photos show, and it may have even deepened as it fully cured.

    Orange is actually a very good colour to brighten a room, especially if you are planing a 60's retro look.

  21. I personally think a light grey is more in damand these days than beige. Most of the new and flipped houses are going there

    I personally prefer Benjamin Moore by my flippers used Sherwin Williams matte grey SW 7015 (promar 400) with Solo white trim. Looks great.

    I have tried to get my wife to go with Mango in the TV room....which is what I would like in a small room with large window. Ended up painting absinthe which turned out to be a light dull mint green.

    Thanks for your input, I appreciate it! I've also heard that light grey is hugely popular these days. The rooms that we are painting are already dark, with huge metal gold trimmed windows and dark wood crown molding (the house was built in 1949 and is very Frank Lloyd Wright like in it's design), so we fear that doing any variety of grey, might be too dark. Since posting earlier this morning above, I have spoken with my contractor and he said that he often uses Benjamin Moore Linen White and that would be a good choice for what we are going for. I will have a look at your suggestion and consider it. The bottom line is, the wallpaper that we are having removed in the large living room was that dark green 'grass like" wallpaper and in the other rooms, my mother had some crazy shiny wallpaper, which screams 1977 and a disco, LOL. I honestly have never understood just where my mother was with that wallpaper. Rich looking at the time I guess, but hugely out of date these days.
     
  25. Linen white is great too. It’s still dark here Seattle) but later I’ll snap some photos of this light grey.


    Edit: not color accurate but here is that nice light grey. @Chris C
