Nice. When you live this close to your equipment things become detailed and the smallest changes (speaker toe in) are clearly audible. You learn a LOT from having a tiny, crammed a/v space and when life provides for a bigger room, you know how to make things right ;)
Keep it up!
ps is that a microfiche on the left hand side of your table or a sheet covering a monitor?

If you are talking about the grey thing, it's just a mat
so when at long gigs, my feet stay comfy. LOL

Great I would say :wink: It makes the turntable easy to get to and having the turntable up there keeps it away from bouncy wooden floors etc.
Putting the speakers on the steel girder made a big difference to the overall sound: less bass, but much more accurate bass I remember.
I have a thread on how much the turntable weighs (c8kg incl arm), so I may be limited a bit for alternative tables, but hey ho, I’m sure if I wanted a change I could find something good enough... [-o<

I had to think a bit about what you were on about...no Ween =D> . The Doors, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin are the other posters around the room.

Here’s a couple pics of my tt. Ariston rd11s. Denon 110 cart. Sounds super sick. This is the blue note tone poet series. Pressed from original masters. As smooth as ice.
