    Heather, Those shelves around your sitting area look to be about the correct size for albums. What the heck are all those books doing there!

    Ahh. Recently sent the Eames chair off to the HM hospital, so had to use the sofa. The 3" add'l 'sitting ear height' ruined the amazing imaging I had with the chair. Glad the chair is back again - it places my ears right at 077 height of the "L200"s....Perfect!
    (And The Cat gets his sofa back again.)

    If you look carefully, you can see the whole lower shelf on the back wall is wall to wall records, Her stack starts on the left - mine is the bulk of it. But I have not bought music on vinyl for years (got a Disney "classic songs" album maybe 5 years back, but thats it). They are not easy to get to since, even with a Denon DP45F and Stanton 681EEE cart, I just don't play records anymore. Tho obviously, I did pull out the Oneness album last fall when I was considering going to see McLaughlin's "last tour" - passed on it.
    And with over 2TB of lossless files on a server, ... well, music is so much more friendly that way, and still sounds real good. But who knows, once the Heather/Altec Valenias are sorted, maybe I'll play some vinyl again ...!

    This is my current seat. Low back so open to sound. Swivels too.

    Thank you for the welcome! Wanted to search for a welcome thread to say hello :)
    This is the front but the turntables (Dual 601/701 v1) are in brown consoles now. And the changed seat of course.

    The amplifier is a Yamaha CR-2020 and the speakers Heco Professional 650

    That's on of our rooms in the cellar. I like the wood on the ceiling... And it wouldn't really get any higher without :)

    Welcome to AK, skeal. Wild guess: It's probably difficult to locate you after work or on the weekends because you're simply lost in the music. Your space simply demands focused, solitary listening with minimal distraction. If I were in your shoes, my neighbors would have to file a missing person's report as they'd hardly ever see me.
