Holmz Posted August 23, 2021 Share Posted August 23, 2021 I have owned a pair of 2C since around 1985 ish. So it is probably a good investment as I have never though of replacing them. I’ve been through a PSE amp, then some VTLs, and just got a used PrimaLuna from a friend (who was also the same friend that the VTLs came from) At home we just got an OLED LG, and the audio is pretty dire. The Mrs has some hyperacucis, and simultaneously we both have hard time with hearing the dialogue from some movies and series. The other problem with the 2C is the WAF, so I might try and get some brown socks/grills to better blend with the general dark brown wood in the room. It is looking like I should use a VCC2 or a VCC5 rather than a VCC1. Does anyone have dimensions for the VCC5? It seems a bit deep, and that was part of the WAF with the 2C… When I have them set up well then the house boss thinks that they are too far into the room. That is the point where the sound gets a magical depth that seems like it is coming from outside of the living room wall. Which also gets some comments about not being able to even hear the speakers, and they don’t sound like speakers should sound… because you cannot hear them. Maybe the VCC2 is a more correct choice being able to sit a bit further back? However we will likely have a console below the TV, and move the TV to a wall mount. Then we can shove the AV gear into the cabinet and put the center channel on top… hence the size question. If I go 5.2 then likely it will be the VSM1s, but the room is 14’ TV to sofa wall, and 18’ wide with another 12’ for an attached dining room. Ceilings are 11am high and it is on wooden floor, so at least it makes running cables a bit easier… (i.e. under the floor). So the VSM1 pair would be ~4 feet directly left and right of the sofa’s seated position. If I shove them, into the corner then they be maybe 6-10” back. What is a sensible approach here? Most of the AV forums seem to push Warfdales, KEF, Klipsh, etc… however I do not mind that even in 2 channel mode the TV seems like the sound is coming from the screen rather than the speakers. I know it is probably a bit of an echo chamber of confirmation bias here, but I think I could do worse… and I have had the 2Cs for so long I am attached to them at this point. Another friend with Dunlavy speakers commented that there were only a handful of speakers that where designed time/phase correct (Dunlavy, Spica, Vandersteen…). The VTL friend also has a pair of Spica’s in addition to the ML planners… so we all sort of like similar sounds. The house is new to us, so there is also a bit to do for treatments that are WAF acceptable. A curtain over the window is an easy sell, as is a rug on the hardwood floor.
