    $6m Home Setup


    As is often pointed out on this board, money can buy you a load of kit, more often than B&O, but not necessarily stylish kit

    What a lovely installation.


    Cables all over the floor, a $6.00 fan blowing on your knees and enough amplification to mask the jet turbine fan noise of a 4K pro cinema projector mounted behind the prime seating position.

    That's just jaw droppingly ................................................................................... naff...............Ick!


    Nice bookshelves though, although I shudder to think what reading/viewing material is stuffed in them if THAT is their idea of tasteful.

    Re: $6m Home Setup

    WOW.... What an "installation". I guess nobody told him he could have already done this with 2 pairs of Beolab 5!!!!!!! Come on. This is really not serious.

    Best regards

    That set up of his is so cluttered I wonder how he able to set himself in a mood to relax and watch a movie. I mean come on, no one is that impervious to the influence of the aesthetic. 

    For that money, I would go for Goldmund.

    Re: $6m Home Setup

    i don't think TASTE is what they wanted... they wanted performance clearly, i'm sure it sounds ridiculous, i'm also sure 7 BeoLab 5 would sound better

    Re: $6m Home Setup

    I find it somehow unsettlingly.................sad!

    Maybe sad is the wrong word, but definitely unsettling!

    Generally speaking, you aren't learning much if your lips are moving.

    Re: $6m Home Setup

    Puncher I think you are right, its sad, that came to my mind as well... its all sort of a bit desperate ..... 

    ...Can you imagine having spent all that money and sitting in that awful room (you would think for that money you could at least manage to create a home cinema experience with comfy recliner chairs and the like)  and being blasted by all those enormous and over-powering speakers towering over you... horrid!
