The Workstation


Sony SS-T70ES Speakers Powered by Logitech Z906

Soon to be replaced by Purifi 1ET400A Amps - Overkill I know - The new Amps will share duties on the main system powering the SS-X70ED Speakers with 2 x Velodyne 10" Subs (1 of the Subs sits next to my workstation that will be switchable from main system to workstation system and will be wired via the RME ADI-2 for Workstation use)


Sony 5200ES AVR Amp powers the main system and will soon be replaced by Denon 8500H (with 1ET400A Amps for mains in a 9.2.4 Atmos configuration)
The rest of the surround floor speakers are also SS-X70ED speakers with SS-XC70ED repackaged in a custom wall enclosure behind a custom DIY 120" Spandex acoustically transparent screen.

In-wall speaker back together!

In-wall speaker build2

 

 

Properly time and phase aligned based on original cabinet spacing and alignment.  Some insulation was re-packed behind tweeter.

In-wall speaker finished!

 

Here's an old walk around of the system, though the screen is now mounted on the wall, and a few other things have since changed as per pics above.
 

 

Room Response and Group Delay of the system with the Subs integrated. (@ seating position 3M)
System plays cleanly to about 118db at 3M (more than enough)

And the digital pinball machine I made at the back of the room. (and yes it has a custom subwoofer built-in)

This is all very cool.  Love the way you have repackaged those Sony speakers. 

 

And the pinball machine is plain fantastic.

 

Happy listening!
