Hi to All,

Having always a love of high-tech stuff and with a background of an electrical engineer I spent the last 6-7 months for studying the latest technology in HTs and finally took the plunge and bought a couple of nice equipment for my living room.

Size of the living room:

Length: 13 feet/ 4 meters
Width: 12 feet/ 3.7 meters
Height: 10 feet/ 3.1 meters

Eqpmt:

LCD TV: Samsung LE40A656
AVR: Denon AVR-2310

Speakers: Dali of Denmark (www.dali.dk)

Front L/R: Dali Concept 2
Front Heights: Dali Concept 1
Center: Dali Concept Center (what else, eh?)
Surrounds: Dali Concept 1
Sub: Dali Concept Sub (what else, again?)

STB: Philips HD DVR

Turntable: Akai AP-001C (vintage type, but needed a lot)

Tape deck: Akai CS-702 D (another vintage type, but needed again)

VCR: have a lot of VHS cassettes from the past, so its a Panasonic NV-HD687

CD: Sony CDP-M43 (soon to be replaced by a Denon DB2500BT HD transport)

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite A10-S503 (still need to figure out how to connect it to the Denon avr)

Air-con: Samsung xxx (too lazy to look up the model no.)

OK, so here are the pix:

As seen from the couch:



The other way around as seen from the TV:



All front speakers are nudged off up front from the bookshelf and tilted at about 10 degrees downwards in order to face the main listening position at ear height...



A decent shot of the Denon AVR-2310 at her place, including the completely sealed front firing Dali Concept Sub:



Front Main Left and Front Left Height placement:



Anything you Guys would have done differently? Suggestions are more than welcome! Please don't spare me!

Sorry. I guess "study" would have been a better choice, just going by all of the books you have in there. Kinda makes the equipment secondary IMO.

I would also add "Library". But when I first saw the pics I said the same thing "Looks more like a home office".

Hi Guys, never thought of that "office look" of my living room, but you may have a point there. Maybe the extention to the left side with the laptop is responsible for this case. Anyhow, the system sounds pretty good!!

Thanks again.

Very nice setup. Not sure if these area available in your neck of the woods but they can be used for angling your speakers - and also isolate them too. Auralex makes some good stuff.

Thanks wizzack. Mopad looks like a pretty good idea. I'll start to look around in my woods!

mogorf,

Very nice room. I like all the wood work and the beautiful windows to the left. It sure looks like you have a nice view!

Dali makes some excellent speakers and I am sure it sounds great in there!

Regards

Wow, nice setup! Plus, the fact that it's not your typical boxed room is really nice! Lot of personality in that room and it shows!

Hi dd,

Thanks for your kind compliments, room was completely remodelled in 2008 by a designer studio, cost a fortune, but nonetheless! And yeah, Dali beyond its quality guaranteed by Danish craftsmanship, also does well in the price department! :-)

Thanks Luma, owner (wifey and me) and designer worked closely together via a lot of consultation before and even on-the-job to get this final result.

I must agree with the others who have admired your shelving, Mogorf. It is beautiful and wonderfully subtle.

Thanks GLuebben and cdvision,

Another point in regards of acoustic treatment (sort of) was the wallpaper seen behind the TV and on the right side (might not be really visible on the photo). It's not a flat and glossy product but has a kinda rough texture that has the role of taming reflections off the walls, yet allowing Audyssey to do a better (less strained) job while doing room correction.

Meantime, the mirrors built into the rear wall furniture (so called bronze mirrors that are less agressive than "normal" mirrors, if you take a closer look) may mean a challange for Audyssey, but the overall effects work pretty fine for my ears.

Thank you, probably the only thing missing out of the vintage equipment is Edison's gramophone and a dog!

Szervusz cd, remélem beszélsz magyarul, de ha nem az angol is jó lesz.

Hi cd, hope you speak Hungarian, nonetheless, English will just do fine.

Come to Budapest at your earliest convenience, and don't forget to shoot me a PM of your schedule. I'll take care of you, first we'll do is to audition my room set up and then we'll go out for a treat to fine restaurants and plenty other stuff to see what Budapest has to offer out of her so called "Old World Charme", something you won't fine in the New World Charme of Vanvouver, B.C.

Deal?

Sounds good! Unfortunately I only know English. I wish I'd picked up other languages when I was younger. I used to know a bit of Polish when I was young. But I've since forgotten all I knew. (My grandfather - my mom's dad) was Polish.

Love the room, I'm a big fan of wood, the more the better, but that first pic looking at the t.v makes the t.v look like it's a mile away, it seems like it's to far away for a 40in t.v.

Thanks for your kind compliments on wood! I think it's only the photo (stitched panorama) that is causing sucha distortion of perspective, the tv from the couch is actually about 3.5 meters, I think good enough for a 40"er.

I don't think you should take anyone's suggestion, because your setup is awesome.
But i think you should upload a photo of this room's surroundings, i mean a photo of the surroundings through the window, because while watching theater sitting in this room i would like to feel the feelings of the environment.
