This is my system setup in a SE Florida open floor plan design using the family room as a media room (14'-10"W X17'5"L X12'H). A kitchen area to the rear, and a breakfast nook at rear right wall. It's used primarily for stereo listening although we do watch movies on the wall mounted plasma HD.
Raidho Ayra C3.0 speakers, Lindemann amplification, Cary CD/SACD digital source supported by a solid "system foundation" (symmetrical system setup, room acoustics, power conditioning, synergistic cabling, resonance control) optimizing equipment performance.
The audio rack (Solidtech ROS Ref 4) positioned left rear of the listening position contains all ancillary equipment except the Lindemann 855 amp:
- Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray player
- Integra DTC-9.8 Pre/Pro
- Cary 306 CD/SACD player supported by Solidtech FOS
- Lindemann 830S Preamp supported by Nordost Ti pulsar points
