I agree

Aluminium X 4!

A shot of the Eclipse at rest (screen off) and the speaker as a highlight would be terrific

trackbeo:

If someone showed me this layout in the abstract (corner positions, room connection, nearby wall reflections), I would be quite surprised that it sounded decent at all! Guess it's a testament to the radiation pattern of the acoustic lens. Your choice to swap the 18's to the front L/R makes good sense to me, as does moving the 19 out of the corner. Sorry I cannot help with your question, but I wanted to post to say I *love* your matching polished aluminum "BeoLamps" -- it's as if Ross Lovegrove had waltzed through the room, waved his hands and done a Uri Geller, bending the lamps to his wishes! (Now there would be a worthy successor to David Lewis; imagine what the BL50 *could* have looked like...)

Thanks :-)

I had to look up those 2 people you mention :-). And yes, i love them too. They’re cobra lamps.

Assuming that your Essence is a 2nd Gen, just connect that to your network somewhere, where it fits (preferedly hardwired)

and set it up as an integrated device of the Avant.

This way you can reach it directly via the Avant/the X-app.

Look here for inspiration:

http://forum.beoworld.org/forums/p/28374/223554.aspx

If you fancy that - you could connect a turntable to the line in and play vinyl on your Avant setup.

You could also place it somewhere else in the house and connect an S3 (as an example) to it to play music - in a hall or a guestroom.

Plug the ir-eye in to it for convenience.

When you then connect it to the Avant, you can reach the (some of) its sources from there.

I wish you happy playing.....and playing music ;-)

P.S. If not already done, you really should make a Speakers Group with the two BL3’s by that chair.

Sitting there listening to music will be like having giant headphones ;-)))

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Yeah it is a Gen 2 and i was using it solely to connect the BL3s and to use it as a NL product. The primary product in the app was the Avant but as all my other stuff is NL it’s currently surplus to requirements.

I don’t own a LP player and i dont see me getting one of those. Perhaps i can see if my dad would like it, if I cannot connect it to the Lab 3s along with the receiver 1s.

I have made a “rears” speaker group just like i had with the 18s there previously.

 Beautiful - reminds me of an Eames house – and I love the Swan chairs.(Not to mention that idyllic view)

 How refreshing to see a photo in which  the owner has clearly spent more on the house than the hi-fi :-)

Hi CB -  I can't understand the bit in brackets - 'Extirpated' means 'destroyed' or 'obliterated' (?)

Hi Kromer,

Thank you very much!

No – not a showroom but part of my (obsessively minimal) home on the south coast in England.

I’m delighted that you recognised the chair but then again, Verner Panton is a  compatriot of yours 🇩🇰

 Best regards – Alan

It means I took it out of the depths of the closet, and certainly not destroyed Surprise
