A number of changes of late to the secondary system in our living room.
....I really am enjoying the outcome!

Out - Dynaudio DM 2/7 stand mounts
Out - Pioneer TX 6200 tuner
Out - JVC QL-Y5F TT .....decided to just have the one table in my main listening room / very rarely played records here

In - Dynaco A 35's - recapped...."new" grill cloth
In - Sherwood S-2400 tuner

The one constant is the Luxman L-450 ....and the rack which was built for me by a dear friend

Warm, rich and full soundstage. Amazing what a simple system can sound like.

Thanks for taking a look!

Nice looking setup. A lot of music was, and is still being, enjoyed on good quality old audio equipment. Should keep you happy for years :-)

All the best to you,

Don

Had a few sets of those Dyna 25's over the years , nice sound for what you used to get them for . Very tasteful looking set up , bet some 70's R&B would sound good in that set up :D

Thank-you ....yes some R&B does indeed sound pretty sweet.
...I also have a pair of the Dynaco 25XL's but these are the A 35's in this set-up and do everything the 25's do except a little better :D

Free or $20....hard to pass up indeed!
......these (A 35's) are harder to come by as I have been told by Dynaco fans.
......long story but I purchased these from a very nice local CAM member who got them from a dear friend who purchased them new
......very well cared for by a passionate audio gent
I feel fortunate!!

Very nice looking room and setup! I'm curious about the piece above your stereo on the wall. What is the story on that? It looks great in your room and I've been looking for ideas for a similar space in my room. Enjoy!

Just being devil's advocate a bit here. The room looks very hard and reflecting, a rug, at minimum, would help. If the room is good-sized as it appears to be, the Dynaudio's would have been a serious challenge for that amp. They are way better speakers than the Dynaco's. This is just my opinion. I do see and echo the visual appeal.

Hey Che,

"Devil advocate" away :)

The Lux made those Dynaudio's sing, no question about it.
And we enjoyed them when we did play them.

....and no argument they are a way better speaker then the A 35's...the technology is far more advanced.

This was a move to do two things......1) lessen my audio dollar footprint .....and 2) get all vintage gear in there for aesthetics.

Now don't misunderstand me - I love the way this system turned out. The synergy between these components is outstanding.....better then it should be!

The pic doesn't show the rest of the room....with 2 large upholstered chairs....a large leather sofa and ottoman....full length curtains....fabric pleated shades, etc it's not as "boomy" or reflective as you might think. Plus an area rug off to the side a bit too.

....plus all these components are on the warm side (which I like) and so the added liveliness (of the floors) for example kinda compensate for that warmth in a good way.

I think you'd be pleased sitting having a beverage in there with me :D

You're welcome to drop by!!

Thx

Hey, thanks bro', last time I was in Winnipeg I feel like I didn't give it a fair chance.
I, too was curious about the wall hanging above.

And now even more curious about the main rig. I gather you only listen to radio in this room?

The 'Peg grows on you!! ....well maybe not everyone :roll:

Radio mostly....but there is a cd player below too.
As I stated in the opening post I did have a table here but it got so little use that I decided to move it along.
Now only the one table in the main listening room.

I sent David P a PM - that piece my wife found at an art sale in Winnipeg a few years back. The artisan is from Montreal. Its glass and stainless....pretty heavy piece. We've received many comments over the years on it.

Thx


....and although I take crooked pics, the piece is anchored to the wall straight I assure you :wink:
