  • Re: Listening Room design

    [quote user="bidstonhall"] Looks like you had to cut away some of the trim, looks better in actual fact, fabulous setup [/quote] Right you are. We did not measure the reels when we decided on the trim. The Watt guys are good with all kinds of routers. Thanks for the positive feedback. I have done some revision to my recent post with more technical information. As I added in that post, I am using these posts to give people some technical "red meat" of how a complicated integration

    [quote user="MediaBobNY"] The smaller 7" reel one from circa 1980 is a Pioneer RT-707, which I also own. It was designed for rack mounting, with notches in the faceplate on the left and right sides for the mounting screws [/quote] Good eye. Yes, RT-707. The upper deck is a Tascam BR-20 2 track 7.5/15ips recorder. The Pioneer is 4 track (2 sided stereo) so that's why both players are there. Above and between the two of them are some rack fans. Those old R2R players generate a fair

    [quote user="marexy"] Hi nice B&O tech :) but..isn't a little bit small room? [/quote] Yes, a little bit. The pictures make it look smaller than it is. But, it was chosen for a few reasons: No major remodeling required Speakers outlast rooms in my experience so I'd rather have over powered speakers in a smaller room. Can always remodel later. My wife and I have very different ideas of what moderate volume is This room is the furthest from the Master Bedroom Contained space

  • Listening Room design

    Thought people might be interested in my new listening room. This has been an interesting project that has taught me a lot about audio and integration but produced a nice result. I was fortunate enough to have a room that does not have parallel walls which lends itself well to good acoustics. I worked on the project with Watt Integration who is Arizona's B&O dealer. I have a bunch of B&O equipment and was hoping to just integrate it in a new configuration with a preamp. My overall project

    [quote user="Duels"] How about a picture Tom? What speakers are you listening to in that room? [/quote] Sure. We are still under construction and underdecorated but I'll put one up tomorrow. Running Lab 5s, Lab 3s and 4000s. Non-b&o preamp and TV.

    I have a shape in my listening room as dampers. No drivers, control, etc. Just dampers. Looks great. Improves the sound. Uses no power.

  • Re: Beolab 5 & 96khz sources

    [quote user="CB"] No, I'm not sure. There are so many options here and there, often not explicit for the average person, and because the audible differences are not possible to compare side by side, it's quite difficult to answer your question. --> I did my best and prefer to enjoy my music than waste my time to compare things... [/quote] I think that makes a whole lot of sense. The only reason I'm digging into this so deeply is so I can get my system set up. Since I am looking

    [quote user="CB"] [quote user="tom555"]yes. 75 ohm cable; Will try another to make sure it's not a cable issue.[/quote] I've had some clicking issues with a cable also. Not sure why because it was not permanent (may be due to a bad plug or ECM ( electromagnetic interference ?)) Note: in my setup, the Chromecast audio isn't wired (WiFi) and it just works... Did you have a look at the settings of the multimedia server or the router/switch as well? May it be due to a

    [quote user="CB"] [quote user="CB"]Did you use a 75 Ohms coaxial cable? ( FWIW see this thread here ) And what about the source (file, streaming device) you use?[/quote] ? [/quote]yes. 75 ohm cable; Will try another to make sure it's not a cable issue. The source is a 24/96 file stored locally on my server. The server is hardwired via ethernet and the chromecast audio is hardwired as well. Again, works fine at 24/48 without the clicks, but at the higher rate (including 16
