Thanks to all of you.
Ugo78: Nice pic, but:- blue sky? mmh, the reflection in the window is still a very marginal element, not a protagonist as the title of the contest asked for...;- red bricks?! Not at all. A brick is "a block, or a single unit of a CERAMIC material" (Wikipedia). These are blocks of painted (?) sandstone... Sorry, but in my opinion your photo had to be disqualified...
I'm not really sure if its bricks or stones, but we frequently use both termes wrongly.
thanks you all for your kind words.
Jen003: I've only just seen this now and absolutely love it and very deserving of 1st imo.Could you tell me where this is please?
Thanks for your kind words.
The Corrèze is a french department, and the village is : Collonges la rouge (Collonges the red), a beautiful small village, where all houses are made of red stones.
TanukiSan: Congratulations with your 2'nd place.
Thanks a lot
mrsfixit: Wow, awesome setup.It reminds me *very* much of my friend in South Carolina's setup. His setup also has high end tube amps, and some weird white plastic speakers that flare out like the bell of a trumpet- only they're about 3' or 4' feet in diameter.Man cave indeed. We ladies like this sort of thing too... :-)Thanks for sharing this. It made me smile. :-)
Thanks and yes, it's not an exclusive room for men,lol. My wife also like this room, which is primarily intended for movies, musics and video games. She like watching movies :)
RPJG: How can those 6 front speakers work in harmony, compared to a simpler setup with two large speakers?
There are four pairs of front speakers, one on top of the screen (front high left and right), one for the sides (front wide left and right), and two pairs for front , controlled by a power amplifier which is connected to an AV amp, + one pair on the side of the couch (surround left and right) and one pair behind (surround back left and right). The whole is calibrated per six measurement points by Odyssey technology.Two pairs of front speakers (properly adjusted) dramatically increases the presence of sound without overlapping sound waves.In Stereo mode with stereo amps, I select manually the speakers with a specific distribution box and I choose the stereo amp I want to use. Most of the time, in stereo mode, I use only one or two pairs of speaker.
Thanks for all your comments.
Agree with the LC2, even if the difference is very low with the LC1, but unfortunately there is no more "studio L line" available in France.
