Not necessarily a 'building' post, but a 'moving and rebuilding' post. There's no real forum for this: I need to move my entire household, including of course all my HIFI, from Europe to Australia.
This is the main system
with my precious Denon S1 components.
There are in total 31 speakers, 5 tube amps, and about 15 other components involved: 10 Speakers and the tube amps are from Ian Schneller's Specimen Products in Chicago
and the other speakers are Infinity (mainly Kappa) in all kinds and sizes.
In order for everything to move, it is going to be packed up in an ocean freight container, and will float the seven seas for a couple of months. I am extremely anxious about this. Especially since there seems to be no insurance provider willing to provide any insurance against vibration damage, electrical damage, atmospherical damage and pest damage.
Is there anyone with experience in this? I'm sure temperatures in the container can get pretty high, but maybe also pretty low. I'm sure it will be vibrating like crazy. No idea about humidity. Is there any special instructions I should give to the people coming to pack everything up?
Apart from that, I look very much forward to finding a home with space to really build an auditorium appropriate to the quality and class of this equipment. I'll be sure to document it on these forums.
