I believe that the most important item of a well set-up system is the space itself. The space, which can be a dedicated one, a main house-one, but well converted to an entertainment space, or generally a living room, which needs a lot of compromises.

Well, I am now in the process of building a dedicated one. The space HAS to fulfil both requirements: Home Theater AND Music, and not necessarily at that order. This is the most important and perhaps the most expensive of all of my components. The space will have a two-level floor, insulated walls and a ridgit construction. Approx. dimensions (in metres, I am in Europe after all): 9 m long x 5 m wide by 2.75 m (one half) high and 2.50 m (the other half) high.
