Bruskie Posted March 13 Share Posted March 13 (edited) Since we moved here to Colorado 2 years ago my audio journey has been absolutely amazing. During this time I have switched back to Vandersteen, going from Thiel CS 2.3 to Quatro Wood CT. My listening room is 14' X 16' X 8' ceiling. The rear wall is only 6' high opening to an eat-in kitchen 5 steps up stairs. After trying the speakers at various locations with great advice from Johnny Rutan, I settled on them being 19" from the front wall bookshelves with a 1" toe-in, and 12" from the side walls. They are 130" apart (tweeter to tweeter) and about 150" to my listening position. I have rotated some plants around, made some diffusing panels, threw a rug down and hung some wall hangings. My latest week was switching 2 PCs. I had a high current Hurricane feeding my Torus RM15 and ran my Pass X250.8 into the wall using the stock PC. I figured the amp could use the high current cord more than the Torus since it only powered my TT (or streamer) and pre at any given time. Well, the music did become fuller. I don't really know how to describe it other that it sounds richer. More harmonics??? More air??? It just sounds wonderful. I feel like I have progressed more in the last 5-6 years than I have in the previous 40. My system has never sounded anywhere close to the magic that is now coming out of those Quatros. And I have many of you on this and other forums to thank for your guidance and just plain kindness with helping me through this complex audio journey. If anyone has any suggestions based on my system and room photos I am all ears. Thank you all, Bruce Edited March 13 by Bruskie 4 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
