actually i find having a dedicated room is harder to get it sound right compared to open area....like living hall

maybe mindset that it should sound better in a room....

Dunno we are in the same boat, I found that too "big" or "high ceiling" living area in the house, e.g. at my hometown, at 1st floor, I got a tall living area, will hear too much echo if play too loud hmm.gif

If living hall with carpet and window curtain, it will be just fine? flex.gif

Dedicated room is ideal for maximizing hifi system.
speakers need loading & reflections to achieve d following
1. Big ambience
2. Enveloping feel
3. Texture midrange
4. Lows extension with a tail
5. Depth n layering
6. Airyness
7. Full bodied

Dear sifus.....wanna ask. Any shops selling Cremona Centre? Does not matter if it is Cremona M Centre or Cremona Centre.

Also, if I were to get Liuto Smart Centre, will there be audible difference? I have heard that there are timbre difference, but I am not sure myself.


Please help. Thanks a lot

Dickong this is the Home series before Domus series came about.....Domus was launched 2008 around there

Save to say they are roughly within 8 to 10 years old

If these sonus are in condition....worth getting

The tweeter is the Dynaudio Esotar made to SF specification and tuning
The mids is made by Seas if i am not mistaken...otherwise it could be Eton....

Pair it Krell or Mcintosh......man these speakers are awesome

revive

been awhile since i posted my system.....so lately i moved into a smaller room and playing with simple setup....

so here it is...with the trinity of sources.

the vinyl - Linn LP12 Majik with Project Audio arm and Adikt cart....Project Audio Phono DS2 Tube

Mcintosh MCD-201 cdp

Cambridge Audio Azur 851N streamer

Accuphase E480 int amp

Olympica 2

Cables by Vermouth, Oyaide and Neotech diy
rack by Taoc
damping/footers by Harmonix

by far this is the most musical ever setup that I have owned through out my audio journey

it doesn't need hard listening to enjoy the music

Your room needs a rug on the floor, you have early reflections from both the walls and floor

ahhhh i have many stuffs that i take in and out while setting up my system...including rugs of different piles/fabric, wood diffusers, bass traps, and all sorts of acoustic treatment

i've been playing with hifi for 20 years excluding the days where i use my dad's equipment....

first reflection controls are for new comers...just like people tell me about centre imaging lar....depth, width....these are really fundamentals

but its good to bring awareness too

some also miss the tempo, timing, tonal balance, micro dynamics, coherence and level matching

we've progressed into the realism of the music.....natural organic representation to bring the visual listening and liveliness of the music
