    Default What stands?

    Is that a birds eye lens you took that picture with? That's very cool. Your room is amazing. May I ask what your stands are sitting on?

    Default Great pix

    Wow that's a fantastic pic indeed! Wonder how the SHL-5 sounds with the Lamms...the stands look like Skylan or something similar.

    Default Awesome setup!

    Hi Ferdie

    Hope you are keeping well!

    Wow! Awesome setup which must sound as good as how it looks! This is my dream, to have my own dedicated music room, acoustically treated and aesthetically beautiful and inviting.

    Keep well!

    Default Minimal SHL5 system

    I agree that is a very complete hi-end system ...

    This is a minimal setup with SHL5 maybe not the best so far but still good for someone who listen just music at home.
    Cheers

    Default Harbeths = minimal set-up

    Harbeths are easy to please, minimal set-up is great with them as well.

    With my dedicated room set-up, the capabilities of the harbeths, the lamms and the other gears are maxxed out & one will be aware that these can compete with the best out there.

    Default Minimal setup?

    Hi Micron. I wouldn't call your set up minimal at all. It's actually extremely nice.

    Mine is much more minimal than yours, but it still sounds great. I guess that's what makes music so wonderful. All of us get to enjoy it. Is that a glass of white wine I see on the table? Hmmm, good idea.

    Default Harbeth = tonal purity and musicality

    Yes Harbeths really require very little fuss as far as setup is concerned.

    Armed with any decent amp & source & they are good to go & can easily compete with virtually anything out there as far as tonal purity & musicality goes.

    Hi Don Jr
    The setup is minimal because use minimum devices ,but still use a dedicated electric circuit for Naim amp with dac inside (without power conditioner) and acoustic treatments on walls turns on the interior design side... All comands runs from ipad ( I mean lights, heat and sound). The speaker cables goes thru special tubes under the floor and all electronics have a special place in wall with corian shelves. So all you can see is a pair of old style beautifull new speakes. And yes, a glass of wine is always welcome.
    Cheers
