Sure thing. You are able to use any picture you like and they can turn that into an Acoustic panel.

Many of us here have had great results going the DIY route for the same thing and much cheaper. @nickbuol has also helped folks with image editing.

Big fan of GIK myself. Their tri traps and 244 traps look great, but foremost they really make a big difference is sound, and for the money, they can't be beat. I have a dedicated, treated room for the first time in my life, and WOW. What a difference. All I have is a "cheap" pair speakers for $1.5k, and they sound amazing. The sound stage and clarity are just superb now. Every time I sit down and listen to music now, I loose track of time.

It's nice to relax to good sounds and lose time.

Sat down just now with a recently dusted-off (and thoroughly-cleaned, with mild dish soap and water) two-LP set from circa 1990, Phil Collins: Serious Hits...LIVE! as seen here:



Funny enough, even with a good, deep soap-and-water cleaning, these records still sounded shrill, sibilant and almost unlistenable (with regard to, specifically, the last tracks on each side); I don't recall these LPs ever sounding this poor (I bought the album brand-new back in '90), with end-of-side tracks like "Separate Lives" coming across particularly harsh on the vocals...


Still, it was a nice listening session, if definitely bested by my sit-down with the freshly remastered (and awesome-sounding) Def Leppard: Rock of Ages the Definitive Collection CD....

Here is my Marantz system with Monitor Audio Bronze 2's. As you can see the room is packed & limited on space so I had few options as to where to mount the Bronze 2's. Additionally, the listening position is 16' away and the speakers are set 14' apart and mounted 77" from the floor to the top of the speakers. For a couple of weeks I played around with speaker positioning as much as possible until I settled on where they are currently mounted.

I am very happy with this setup! To get the down angle and toe-in set, I was only able to compare the sound of this positioning to the 8' triangle positioning that would normally be ideal for this setup. With eyes closed, imaging is nearly perfect with vocals coming from the center. The Marantz PM8005 pushes the sound to the deep parts of the room and sounds very similar to the 8' triangle requiring a touch more volume to do so.

Since the speakers were mounted so close to the sidewalls to get proper imaging, I was getting some slight bass booming that was rectified with the included Bungs. In addition, I'm using an SVS SB-2000 sub in the rear left corner of the room. This pairs nicely with the Bronze 2's and helps produce a nice soundstage especially since the bungs reduce some bass.

I am impressed with the Bronze 2's since the soundstage and imaging is great considering how far apart they are. Also, break-in is a must. They sounded thin and I was disappointed with them until they reached about 100 hrs.

Nice setup. What model are the three Marantz units and the Turntable? I see the Marantz PM8005 Integrated Amplifier but I can't tell what the other units are. Oh, nice choice in speakers too. I love the Bronze 2 line.

Unless I'm mistaken, Paco, the turntable is an Audio-Technica AT-LP1240 (I have its little brother, the AT-LP120 ).

Like everyone else has said, nice Marantz gear; I, too, am rocking one of their components in my two-channel system, one of the last CD changers they made, the CC-4001.


Is that an SACD or CD player? And is the turntable an Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB?

Nice setup Tron. You should probably have the PM8005 at the top of that stack for sufficient ventilation.

The turntable is an Audio Technica AT-LP1240. I think it sounds fantastic. I had the vintage wood Pioneer PL-570 and the AT sounds better in every way. The unit on top is the NA6005 Network player. I'm still working out the kinks on it and the only remaining issue is that I have to do a factory reset every few days or Spotify Connect & Airplay quit working.

It's the CD6005 (CD only). I was contemplating getting the SA8005 for SACD playback. The reason I didn't is because I have a fairly decent CD collection and I knew that once I start listening to SACD's my CD collection would seem inferior. For now, the CD6005 makes my current CD collection sound better than I've ever heard them. Maybe down the road I'll think about SACD again.

Besides, eventually Spotify, Apple Music, etc will have SACD quality. It's only a matter of time

So legos, a 2000 series SVS sub, and no issues?

Those legos wouldn't survive a song in some of the rooms on this forum

So legos, a 2000 series SVS sub, and no issues?

Those legos wouldn't survive a song in some of the rooms on this forum
The Legos survive just fine! The MEGA BLOKS on the other hand crumble at the lowest of volumes.

Indeed; though I wouldn't necessarily classify it as "true entry level" -- there are plenty of others in this realm that I would deem much less worthy than the AT-LP120, including the Ions and Crosleys of the world...

Planning on upgrading my cart do you know where to look for the best cart for our TT?

I plan on upgrading the stock AT95E soon as well, due to excessive inner groove distortion and other issues; from what I understand, the Audio-Technica 440MLa is a great replacement,

Besides, eventually Spotify, Apple Music, etc will have SACD quality. It's only a matter of time

Indeed, Marantz has been known for making some good all around CD players. My changer has given me issues with regard to recognizing discs and not keeping a multi-disc programming order (very annoying when I'm trying to make my own mixed compilation CD off five different discs I program in the changer) but I think this has more to do with the mechanism of a changer...

Here is my setup:
Dynaudio Focus 260s
Naim Uniti 2 Integrated Amp All-in-One Network Streamer
Pro-ject 2xperience TT w/ Stock Sumiko Blue Point No.2
Naim Stageline phono preamp
Mac Mini w/ M2Tech HiFace USB to spdif converter running JRiver


My system integrates the HT setup also, but the HT bypass on the Naim allows to separate 2-ch from HT. The rest of the gear is a Marantz 7007, Oppo 103, Hsu VTF3 MK5 HP, Dynaudio Focus 210C and DM2/6 and a 55" Panasonic Plasma.

Where are your Acoustic Panels from? They look very nice and integrate with the room well.

A great choice in gear. Though I will admit I have never knowingly heard a speaker from Dynaudio.

I bought them through ATS Acoustics. Thank you for the compliment.


Well if you ever get a chance, do listen, they have a smooth top-end with clean mids and punchy low-end. I really enjoy them.
