I can't say I can compete with such an equipment set!

First I need a place to live (left my apt in Singapore in February, still looking for a job/place).
Then I need to get all my stuff stored in Singapore delivered/unpacked somewhere else.

But while I was enjoying Singapore's life, this is how my rack was organized:

Sony MSC-4000

Pioneer LG-1 (LD+G) / Toshiba HD-A35 (HD DVD)
Pioneer LD-S9 / Denon A11-N (DVD/DVD-A/SACD)
Pioneer HLD-X9 / Pioneer VSA-D8EX (AC3RF built-in)

It's black reinforced glass actually :-)

It's an ATACAMA rack but it looks like they're not selling this model (EQUINOX AV BASE) anymore:

Julien,
Very cool. Must be a real headache to transport all that stuff every time you have to move. Not to mention your LD collection which I'm sure is substantial.
I hope some other people post their setups as well, love to see what people are watching their LD's on.

It never seems to end does it? But as for getting "one more item". I have to warn you, I have my power conditioner and big Conrad Johnson Amp on the floor on stands... so I guess you better go ahead and by a couple of Laserdisc players,... just to be safe! :)

Room

15 feet long
10 feet 2 inches wide
8 feet 8 inches high

Chimney breast to left of room is sound challenge as I have to work off the chimney breast and make the remaining last front of the room appear to be one large wall.

Double glaze window might as well be paper which needs to be blocked up with x2 layers of MDF at different levels to reduce as much traffic sound as possible.

Acoustical tiles are fitted at different angles on side and rear wall and a few on the ceiling near to the front.

I think you really need a video projector and a project screen that lets sound pass through :-)

There is usually a perceived balance between audio volume and visual area size. People tend to put the volume higher when the screen size goes up, without realizing they are listening at a higher volume at all. It just "feels more natural".

Unless you are listening to all these speaker on "Midnight mode" (which I doubt), probably a wider video span is required :-)

I'll get myself some theater chairs someday :think: ... If I ever get to live in the same place more than 2 years.
