Nice!! Where did you get the rack?
This is what I am currently running.
Just got it all up and running yesterday.
Mcintosh c-28 pre
Mcintosh MR 73 tuner
Mcintosh 2100 amplifier
2 stacked pairs of McIntosh ML-2 speakers
Mcintosh MQ 102 EQ
Custom Thorens TD-106 turntable
21x10 room 8 ft ceiling.
sounds good, sometimes really good depending on what music I'm playing, but room acoustics are not ideal, and it shows. lots of balancing and acoustic treatments to follow.
Wayyyy too much stereo for this room, but I am working on doing some treatments to the room. acoustic panels, rug, etc.. should help a bit, but MAN....this set up sure looks awesome.
It's got its own stage!
So far, so good. Just finishing off the open plan build downstairs.
Although the speakers are somewhat in the corners of the room up against the wall they present no problems - to what I can hear anyway.
Nice and flush with no cables in view. My pet hate! Cables!
I'll add some stands under those HPM's when I get the time to make them.
Here are some pics of my 13'x9' listening room. See my sig for equipment.
Thanks for looking!
Hey Tea, I've always liked your speakers. Great implementation of the Heils.
Thanks djangle. Ed Shilling gets credit for those. He sets the Heils up with his own external crossover. They add just the right amount of sparkle. I feel these speakers are a true hidden gem.
Here is what i did with mine.
Thank you! I think they are fabulous. WAY underrated! To my ears,they are maybe a slight bit not as detailed as my First Watt F5. And I mean a slight bit. However,they will out preform the F5 when you want to push the volume.They truly are a great buy.
I bet those sound great!
Its tight in here.... 8 x 10 or so....
My place right now.
Maid retired long ago.......
All those tubes must keep that room very toasty! By the way,that looks like a nice tasty beverage on your desk!
Just a glass of ole Kentucky Tea. 90 proof 7 year old that is......
You should consider hiring her back.
Seriously though, nice taste in music, equipment and drink!
This is what I’ve got going for the time being.
Do you stack the speakers you are listening to on the ones you are not? As stands?
I was going to suggest stands for both pair of speakers. Get those tweeters to ear height when seated.
