Raven's System

Post by Raven » Tue Jan 18, 2011 11:44 am

My BC507NB was delivered yesterday. It was a bittersweet event as I essentially now have my dream system. I realize there will always be improvements however this set up has exceeded my highest expectations.

One of the conditions for allowing the system in the living room was to hide as much stuff as possible. Wife was kind enough to spring for the mule chest but the BmPH is too freekin' huge to fit in any normal furniture so at least I get to look at it.

My listening space is 9500+ cubic feet and the BmPH and the DAR I auditioned fill this space without breaking a sweat.

Thanks to Gilbert for great products, customizations and advice.

Extra special thanks to Totemman, an exceptional person, dealer and listening buddy.

Sorry Double D, there was a minor hiccup with my not having an uploadpic button.

As you can see I don't spend $$ on camera equipment.

The BC507NB was customized to allow for the depth and width requirements of the cabinet. It also has a Neutrik out and a custom BC62 that uses the Neutrik output in the BC6000 giving me an extra outlet.

Image

The main living room and entryway have 18ft ceilings and with the rest of the main floor and upper level being open concept the sound goes into every nook and cranny. I love having music everywhere.

Molly the cat (wife's hobby) hits the couch as soon as the music starts. She's a trooper even with Rush playing full throttle.

:D Great pictures. The system sounds even more wonderful than it looks. However, you are missing one of the cats. As the system is stereo both cats have to be present to achieve full balance.

Ah yes, George, he who wonders why the stereo gets undivided attention for hours on end.

Here is George enjoying Dark Side of the Moon. That or he got into the liquor cabinet again...
