Listening room, Flexi-Racks and Record shelf all DIY
« on: February 03, 2013, 03:23:55 PM »
 Hello,
 Here is my nearly finished listening room I built in my what was a 2 car garage. I built the shelving for record storage and all the Flex-rack style furniture for the room. I am making a few acoustic panels to finish out what the Auralex foam misses. All that is missing is my MAC 2105 ( still in the shop) and a MAC Pre that I am getting from Carl and then it will be perfect.

Greetings Jeff!

The room and the equipment rack looks wonderful!  Beautiful DIY work!!!  It looks like a confortable place to sit and spin some vinyl.  I'd say that you have a terrific vinyl collection.

Nice looking family!  Is that a moose your daughter is holding?

I hope to see you soon!

Regards,

Carl

 Thank you all for the nice comments. It has been my obsession for several months and it is just about perfect for me and then I can start on the theater room.
 Carl, Yes that is a Moose Beenie Baby that Sarah is holding and it is one of her many animals that she absolutly loves. As you may have guessed due to the weather I postponed my trip up and will be trying to reschedule again in a couple weeks or so. I cant wait to update the pics with the McIntosh gear and of course hear them in this room. 
 I set up everything per the Cardas formulas and I think it is nearly perfect, the only flaw that is causing some issues is the big bulk head that the HVAC vent runs through. I am hoping I can correct it with some large sheets of acoustic foam and diffusion.

How do you like the Studio 40's?

 In this space I love them. I have Studio 60's as well and before I finished the room the 60's were all I used as mains. Now in this room I like the 40's better paired with the my 15" sub. So I moved the 60's to the upstairs formal living room where they are doing a much better job since it is a open space with cathedral ceilings.
 Now that the room is done and once I have the McIntosh amp and Pre in place I will upgrade my turntable and then my speakers. Then hopefully I will be able to start all over again and keep upgrading without the Wife kicking me out, LOL
