Bedroom system

Recommended Posts

with a recent update of my speakers in the bedroom system thought maybe worth sharing the little system I've got there,

from main listening position,

slightly closer up,

and sources (nad M5 cd/sacd player, Apple TV, TivoHD and amp is the nad master series M3)

Display is a sharp LCD.

Reason for the whole systems being was to provide an alternative to the main system I have. I've also always had a soft spot for standmounts so this provides a bit of indulgence there. Apart from that this provides a little escape ! somewhere to enjoy a bit of music, TV or other things via various sources. Evenings little daughter also watches a little tv there just before bed. The Tvio and apple tv comes in real handy for that.

I absolutely love the focals, and their sound, I think their forward ness is countered well by the nad gear. overall its punchy, dynamic, detailed and yet not forward in your face.

Its only a 2.0 system, but have measured bass response back to the main listening position,

equipment am using to measure were the velodyne sms-1

and definitely can see the standmounts roll off there nicely that could easily supplement the bass response down the track with a sub.

Its really hitting the sweet spot right now !

whats missing ??? a few things. had a lovely sony BD player that I flogged off. Found were just not using it. A universal remote sold that off found we weren't using that either. just using either the TivoHD remote which can pretty much run the system for TV etc easily. Or the Nad remotes for music replay.

Also missing is a DAC. I had a benchmark dac1 which I sold off. and nad m51 is prime candidate to go with the other nad gear there. when funds permit, I'll borrow one to try out :)

Also missing is a sub as mentioned earlier, am real keen to try out a BK xls200 here would come in a lovely rosewood finish to match the focals and hide away pretty easily and use the velodyne gear to integrate with the room and system.

So yeah there you go a little system. thats bringing me a bit of joy ! but still continues to be a work in progress for a bit of fun and have a bit of play :)

ps my wife has to be mentioned here, she is amazingly tolerant in allowing me this space to play. She says though she allowed the presence of the focals she is expecting some candles to accompany the music ! :D

thanks a master bedroom so bit larger than typical bedroom but probably not as big as what thinking :) yes some nice gear being for a bedroom have been really carefull and bought all of it either on run out or store clearances at hefty discounts, otherwise be never possible. And still flogging the odd bit of stuff to allow the focals to stay. Wife definitely been very accommodating. And have done my best to make sure as wife and children friendly as could make it. She has been very accommodating in the main room too, but will leave that a topic for another thread sometime :)

some care also gone in to get the right height stands so while in bed sitting up tweeters at the right height. Plus also setting them up so image well, with decent bass response and yet not intrude into the space too much to upset the wife !

now Al, do you think its a good idea to have a nice system in the bedroom.

I am all for music whilst doing the wild thing, but if it were from a high fidelity system, one would have to wonder if you wont be distracted and scream out...hey dear did you hear that..........

Great system, Al. I bet there are more than a few who would love it as a main system! Congratulations on getting to keep the Focals, but I hope the PMCs went to a good home. :-)
