Absolutely beautiful. You have assembled a dream living experience and environment! Nearly perfect utilization of a small space. If there were a few vintage mid-century modern furnishings about; I would have found my ultimate interior. Bravo on many levels!!

Just, praise, kudos, ideas and helpful suggestions to improve or refine one's set up.

Hi ld. ! I couldn't agree more mate. None of the arguments - it's alot nicer in here.

Quote:


Now, about the Kef 205/2's! Wow! Not bad, Not bad at all! (that's an understatement). Are you just getting the two towers or are you planning on acquiring the whole surround package?! And if so, is the wood finish the only choice or is a piano black-like finish available? It's obvious that, coordination is paramount in your dwelling!

Regards.

Lol I'm not a wood finish type of bloke as you might have guessed (!), so it will be either the Piano or Satin Black. I'm looking at the 205/2's, 202/2C, then 4 XQ20's as sides/rears. I'm in the middle of arranging a demo here in the coming month which is exciting ! I have a feeling I might have to go down the Nad M25 route for powering them if I can find one in the UK ! Have to wait and see on that.

Then the final part is that Carl from JL Audio has given me the details of a dealer who can export 2 Fathom f112's over here, so that should take care of the sub 100hz region.

My current speakers are a weak link, but I'll be sad to see them go still.

Have a great new year mate, and to everyone else too.

The Kef 205/2 are fantastic speakers and together with the Fathoms it's going to be a hard to beat setup. I know you're going to floor everyone coming to your demo, so do us a favor and snap some spy photos of their faces when you fire that baby up!! That is, only if the prime minister's not going to be present also...

ddgtr cheers mate. though I think I may have given the wrong impression in my post lol ! I'm after a demo of the speakers at an independent AV shop pre-purchase, not in my own home lol. (Sounds like a plan though ?). I'm interested in auditioning the Wilson Benesch Discoveries also, though I have a feeling the Kef's might be a bit kinder to poorly recorded material ?

p.s if the Prime Minister ever set foot in here, there'd have to be a damn good reason !

Rex - cheers for the kind words matey.Thanks for reading too .

I've done a photostream which includes various pics that you can see here, as well as from a link on the first page:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/3296005...76106283/show/

It includes something I got for my Birthday on Jan 1st, which I'm utterly thrilled with tbh. It's a shame there's nowhere in the UK that do something like Colorwarepc in the US -

Being a bit of a PS3 gamer, I've been after these badboys for ages:

A DS3 in Crush to match the sofa's:



And a DS3 in Prowler to match the Bedroom Walls:



They've got a very impressive finish to them - almost like glass !

Cheers all .

Hello FORCE!

Ok, you have taken the concept of color CO-ORDINATION to epic levels! You have the concept on LOCKDOWN!
You see, as quiet as it's kept, I noticed the orange/white MP3 docking station in the initial photos. I thought, "that's unique. It matches the couch colour scheme. Not bad!" But now, you have really raised the bar and found PS3 controllers that not only match the living room decor colours but also the bedroom colours. I just hope that you do not inadvertently leave the "Crush" controller on couch and a guest fails to notice it due to the stealth-like colour and accidently sits on it!
Bravo FORCE. Just when I think you've maxed out, you go vertical.... again, taking it to another level!

Regards.

Many thanks Brian. I'm never happy with my pics still tbh lol. A sucker for perfection I think !

I use a Nikon D40X, which is still really an entry level DSLR, with a Sigma 10-20mm HSM lens for wide shots, or the classic Nikkor 50mm prime for close ups. I always use a tripod (got a wicked Manfrotto one with ball head for xmas !)- this helps immensely, and if I ever need to use an external flash, I bounce it off the ceiling. I also always use the camera's timer to lessen the risk of camera shake when the shutter releases.

I think the real trick is to make sure the subject is well lit, and if it isn't , and you need to use longer exposure times to let more light in, then get yourself a tripod, or something similarly sturdy.

Hope this helps mate.

Force,
Thanks for the reply. I will have to get out the old tripod and give that a try. Also, I am currently using a Kodak Z812 IS 8.1 MP camera. Will upgrading to an SLR be a significant difference?

Thanks for your help.

Here my setup. Its not very modern like yours, more traditional to go with the rest of the house!

It depends on the camera Brian, but generally you're able to do alot more with a DSLR, and the camera itself can do more to help you get better pics. Even on automatic setting you should be able to get some decent stuff, but the real fun lies in using the Manual, Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority settings.

The main advantage, is being able to use different lenses for different jobs, as the glass you use will ultimately be a determining factor on the end result.

There's a whole load to learn (do you ever stop learning ?!), but it's so enjoyable at the same time.

Here is the camera I am currently using. I know very little about cameras but I want to start learning more. Do you think this camera will produce pictures close to the quality of your shots?

Hi again Brian. You should be able to get some pretty nifty shots with that camera ? I see it records only in JPEG format, so if you do any editing or post processing in a program such as photoshop, remember to save in TIFF format (this will be uncompressed). Then when you're ready to upload to an image host such as imageshack etc., then you can save in JPEG format.

And thanks for the nice comps Dave. Maybe you could bribe the wife somehow lol ??

p.s just ordered the 2 F112 fathoms, so they should be with me in about a weeks time. Can't wait !

Thanks for the comments. I almost didn't post because this thread is one of the first I looked at. It looks like it should be in a magazine. Very inspiring. I love your sense of style and your equipment placement. Multiple rooms of sick hardware. Can't go wrong with that.

Hello Force!

Ok, you finally received the Fathoms! Now where are you going to position the behemoths?! BTW, they are very impressive looking. (Understatement of the year!)
I have three movies for you to demo after you set up the subs: Live Free, Die Hard; Ironman and Transformers. Let's see how long it takes the Bobbies to show up at the front door!?!

Wow, I am impressed. This is one reason why I have always hesitated to put my system up for display here! I just start to feel good and BAM, I gotta see this. LOL

This is really nice,a bit sterile for me but impressive nonetheless. Its the kind of place where I can see Mr and Mrs The_Force come in and "Hal" the electronic butler asks if they are "having their usual cabernet for the lady and scotch up for the gentleman this evening?" Upon which The_Force requests Hal to "continue that James Taylor cd we were listening to the night before and oh hal, start that on the third track please!"

While on the subject of acoustic treatments in another discussion are those panels acoustic treatment panels?

I really like the pc room. I installed linux on my ps3 to have a linux system with a beautiful 1080p internet on my 52" dlp so I can appreciate what you did there. The equipment is very impressive. Good job on a very extraordinary system.

Yo ld - those pesky bobbies ! Cheers mate. Luckily I've got those 3 flicks on BD so will have an ikkle play this weekend and check em out . I've got 'em at the front of the room on opposites:



The first night, I was a bit underwhelmed with them tbh - then I spent some time the day after altering crossovers,E.L.F and most importantly gain on the AVR and now I'm pretty chuffed with the result. I think it was a case of not being used to 'clean' bass - and they do like to be cranked up. At lower volumes they merely tickle, but are best served steaming hot at slightly higher levels lol ! Very chuffed overall mate.

mconley cheers mate - and the 'Hal' scenario made me chuckle out loud lol The panels were meant first and foremost as a cosmetic addition. Whether they help or hinder the acoustics in any way I'm not sure ? I suspect even though they're solid, they might help dispersion just a tad ?

That is soooo true! In some cases I find myself getting used to a piece of equipment and when I upgrade it I find myself being a little disappointed only to realize that - after listening to it for a while - I couldn't go back to the old one... It's funny how this whole thing works...

This is not always true though as some additions will blow you away the first time you insert them into the system.

The JLs are excellent subs and they look great in their new home!!! Congrats!

The Force,

Have you considered having one "nearfield", and one "farfield"?

Did you try running the first sub, and see where the nulls were? This would help in the positioning of the second sub, as I see you have multiple seating locations. Also, since you said you have them at "opposites", I assume that would mean that one is hidden by the black lacquered cabinet that you is shown in the pic.

The Force,

Without a doubt one of the most amazing looking systems I've seen yet. I absolutely LOVE the modern contemporary look. Your HT is so clean and organized that it looks like pages from an AV magazine photo shoot. I have never seen a system (or room for that matter) so dust free. Do you have a special room air filtration system?

Also the pics of your room and gear is the best I have seen! Talk about photos you can almost reach out and touch! Were all the pics taken by a professional photographer? I have a DSLR but I'm still a newbie at using it, and at some point would love to have my photos come out as good and as detailed as yours.

Did you try running the first sub, and see where the nulls were? This would help in the positioning of the second sub, as I see you have multiple seating locations. Also, since you said you have them at "opposites", I assume that would mean that one is hidden by the black lacquered cabinet that you is shown in the pic.

Hi fanatical. If you look at the pic a few posts above, when you say the black laquered cabinet, if it's what I think you mean on the right hand side, then that is the sub !! Because I used a wide angle lens, the right hand sub looks alot larger and at a weird position in relation to the LH sub ! I positioned them near enough by what JL Audio themselves recommend - at the front of the room, and at the same distances from both L and R main speakers. My seating/lying (!) position is near on bang in the middle of the two, but still experimenting - just not enough spare time at the mo !

I have a DSLR but I'm still a newbie at using it, and at some point would love to have my photos come out as good and as detailed as yours.

Seth thanks ever so for the kind words mate - means alot. Personally I love your pics ! You've got a lovely bright room there which helps immensely I think. I'm never entirely happy with my pics tbh, but I will always say that my tripod is my best friend - without it I'd be lost,as my hands just shake far too much lol !
