This way I could set up the equipment sideways, creating more floor real estate in the process, which was my wish. Later I […]

HFA Audio Setup History 19 – Secondary Setup – February 2016 to March 2016 premium
After completing the construction work it was time to reposition the Apogees The Duettas and associated equipment were moved into position and with anticipation I sat down on the listening sofa, only to be overwhelmed with bassy room modes.

HFA Audio Setup History 08 – Music Server and Rack change premium
The above picture illustrates where we left off on the previous page, with no more room for the Meridian MD600.
