Here's a pic I thought was pretty cool of my small pathway to my seat.



Here's another picture showing the biggest piece of art at my place.


Yep, it's as big as it seems affraid

There's a story behind this Rolling Eyes but the real issue was, how will it sound in the room Question Or just around the corner from the left speaker. Honestly I didn't have much hope for it staying there, but after some voicing it's working out (so far).

The other thing is the foot stool, that I lucked out with. Another thing that I didn't think would be staying.

So when I leave my writing area and walk through the beads and take 2 steps this is what I see.



To the far left my kitchen, mid left listening area. And you can see the SAM. Behind the SAM is the entrance and equipment storage.

For perspective I lightened up this photo, so it's grainy, but you can see back into the kitchen and writing/sleeping room.



It's actually kind of a cool one man listening pad, that I've enjoyed vibe-ing out.

I'm enjoying the perfect size recording of Bach tonight.

Sorry folks, my world was put on hold Smile



I got caught up in a listening/tuning session with this recording and couldn't let go. So much fun Exclamation There are so many layers and zones to these recordings that sometimes I loose myself inside of the exploration. In this case I zoomed in on each soloist and then slowly backed out into the surroundings. Then I got focused on the choir as if the solos weren't there. I then moved on to the instruments (hushing much of the vocals). Then I went after the hall. Finally I ,once I understood all the parts, put it all together and played with the overall front to back positioning.

With a Tunable Room this would have been easier but something got into me and I just went for it. I noticed the shade outside and realized I had been at this session for almost 24 hours Laughing 24 hours affraid Is there even possibly anything more fun to do in life Question Smile Well, yes, do this in a tunable room, but other than that this was a blast Exclamation I'll be honest I could stay doing this for another week or so with Mozart but life calls. Even now while writing this in the next room I'm tempted to go back in and play. These Tuning Tools, what a blast.

Now what?

Well I'm letting it settle a bit as I tip toe around the place making something to eat, being very careful where I might place something. Then I'm sure I'll be going back in for another listen.

You guys pick on me about sleep, well..... Wink

Hi Michael

Would you like giving a report on the recent CES 2019 through your ears and eyes?

What was the response to the RoomTune products you had there?

Any high points or other learnings from things you saw/heard and the people you met there?

On your last post here: You were at the session with Mozart's Requiem for 24 hours -- you were just letting it settle rather than actually listened to the work all that time, without sleep? You cannot have been listening to the same work over and over for 24 hours.

Also please elaborate what you meant in "...I'm letting it settle a bit as I tip toe around the place making something to eat, being very careful where I might place something. Then I'm sure I'll be going back in for another listen." Why were you "careful where (you) might place something"....what is this "something" you were taking care to place (or not place) apart from being careful in a small place near a kitchen so as not to spill soup on an amp? What were you avoiding so carefully?

See a great reply from Michael here: http://tuneland.forumotion.com/t463-ces-2019-are-you-ready#8912

To which Sonic opined thusly:

Good description Michael!

The proliferation of headphones and ear buds you observed at CES 2019 is a sign of an oncoming disruption that will hit the audio industry. And simply put, this disruptive wave will reshape the whole audio industry, particularly the hubris-laden HEA. This is because the growth of the audio hobby is no a matter of “get younger listeners to appreciate good sound”. Rather than being unable to hear the difference between Good and Bad sound, the issue is where music listening fits into the new 24/7 always on living, how it is heard in context of use of space in personal homes and as part of all the activities of daily life.

The future is “convergent lifestyles and personal interests”, with the means to simultaneously engage work, social networking, entertainment of all types, personal purchasing with no restriction of the when and where.

Tuneable headphones soon Michael?

Sonic

Hi Sonic

The CES was enlightening for me. I felt before that I knew the direction of in-room systems, but seeing this CES put it altogether in an organized fashion helped clear the path I want to take, and have always felt I should take "a full tunable system".

The Rev Combo has taught me so much. One of the most important things is full range systems of today need and will incorporate subwoofers. I don't even mean Subwoofers but more separate 3-ways. I've been doing 3-way systems instead of sub/satellite systems all along and I'm glad I have because I have learned the difference between adding a sub and making a main speaker extender.

for example

A typical high end subwoofer driver has a response of 20hz-200hz give or take. My designs are 22hz-2.5khz. You might say "well your sub amp only goes up to 200hz". But, it's not where you cut it off as much as the design of the woofer mechanically. The Rev Combo is about blending, and the further I go with this the more I realize something very important in my designing. I will end up designing my own stereo amplifier. This doesn't mean someone can't insert their own amps, but what it does mean is my speaker system will be matched and flexible.

My system right now is using the Topping TP21 on top and the Yung 100 below. I have several other Class D amplifiers on the way to me now. This doesn't mean I have decided on Class D, but it means that when I design mine it will be very low mass.

Yes, actually I was in that session for 24 hours straight (with bathroom and food breaks). When I am in design mode that is fairly typical for me.

Yes, mg is having a Class D moment



I'm going through my mind saying "how why when where" so we must give me some room here to see if I can get my brain around this.

study

Let me say this.....



…..inside of it's stock chassis this amp was thin, shy and closed in. Set free? A completely different animal altogether.

Placed on the Platform another huge step. Moving around on the Platform.....



…..well it's a little tonal monster.

Minus the Platform the stripped TP-21 sounds like whatever you set it on and because of this often times sounds smallish. But place this back on even any part of the Platform and it comes back to life, move it around finding the place you like and you can get plenty of body and range. And, huge Huge HUGE soundstage that left on just keeps growing.
