Ambience 2.8 DFR-8 + MT listening room.
12/15/16 at 16:02:34
 
Just finished putting together my all-Decware listening room. And first post to this forum -- I figured I'd share and say hi!

  • Room is: 16'9" x 14'4" x 9' and doubles as my office.
  • Speakers are 2.8 Ambience cabinets using two DFR-8s per side.
  • Amp is a Mini Torii.
  • Sources are Sony CD Player and Sony TTS-3000a Turntable with SME Series IIIs tonearm.
  • Isolator Series 120V 1000W Isolation Transformer-Based Power Conditioner.


Still a work in progress. Definitely need to invest in some room treatment.

Wow, that top-firing loudspeaker looks interesting.

Thanks @Matchstikman -- They certainly are an interesting design. They fell in my lap, so-to-speak. I am coming from a tri-amped multi-way horn-based system with a MiniDSP, scaling way back to a single full range driver system with the MT. I sort of love the simplicity of this system. No crossover, single amp, no DSP. And the sound quality is pretty awesome. I'd like to get a HR-1 eventually, but this is pretty good stop along the way.

Hi, just wondering what speakers replaced those awesome "Ambience" which you had before?

Looks nice DanV. Some Bass absorbsion in the corners would be a good place to start.

Thank you. I think bass traps are definitely going to be a useful addition to my space. There is a fair bit of bass build up that needs to be dealt with. So lots of absorption eventually in the corners should help things quite a bit.

BTW, I am currently running a pair of GR Research super Vs in this room.
