Room Size (LxWxH): 26 ft x 14 ft x 17 ft
Room Comments/Treatments: A.S.C. tube in the middle behind both amps against the wall. This living room has open space on my left to the rest of my house. It would be a nightmare for me to describe the exact dimensions on my left wall. Nevertheless it has great acoustics.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): 60's,70's and 80's rock, Some metal, Oldies, but as of late (the last 6 years or so) Old Classic Jazz has been it for me along with Vocals, and Classical music. I also dig all kinds of Mexican music, Afo-Cuban rhythms etc.
System Goals/Comments: To stop trying to improve the sound. I've been fortunate enough to live a couple of miles away from Jeff's Sound Values, I've purchased most of my equipment from him so he's allowed me to try different speakers that come his way, they are a GREAT bunch of guys, and no I don't work for them. I've tried Spendor 3/1's which have the purest midrange I've ever heard,unfortunately my room is too big for these I may purchase them for a second room. I've tried Audio Physic Virgos, they just didn't sound right in my set up, and I'm in the process of bringing home some Spendor S 100's. So far my Klipsch have out done them all.
System Strengths: System synergy, Dynamics, imaging, truth of timbre, soundstage... Absolutely AWESOME.
System Weaknesses: lowest octave, and my wife not going along with the idea of putting the speakers farther away from the back wall. They are currently about 4 ft. away from this wall.
Video/HT System: Separate
