    Default A setup from Milan V2.0

    New life, new house, new dedicated room and some new hifi equipment.

    Despite the small size of the room I am very satisfied with the result.

    Ciao Eugenio,

    Nice system, and interesting choice of components. I'm sure it sounds great. One small (but very significant) thing I'd compliment you on is how your TV sits behind your equipment, rather then directly in between the speakers, as so often is the case, and which completely ruins the sound!

    The amount of system pics I see posted where there is a huge TV or cabinet stuck right in between the speakers always makes me go [oh shit]... So well done for not doing that.

    Anyway, enjoy the music, as no doubt you will!

    Marco.

    Ciao Marco, grazie!

    The oled TV is a new entry (btw I love it), I've listened for some months without it and - very luckily for me - there were no particular variations in listening compared to the "naked" wall.

    In the future I would like to make a sliding panel on tracks with an acoustic diffuser material to be placed in front of the TV that should be moved only when watching TV.
    But it is not very easy to make for me, I think I will study the best solution for a while

    Eugenio, very nice gear and space! Congrats on the new house, new gear! I too have the issue of TV in between my speakers, but as you say, there are options, have fun working on that! Thanks for sharing your photos!

    Grazie, non č niente. Quello che ho scritto č solomente la veritą!

    Message to others with TVs incorporated into their systems: do what Eugenio has done, as it makes a huge difference, especially if you value creating any semblance of a soundstage!

    I like the idea of a sliding panel on tracks. If you get around to doing that, please show some pictures.

    Inoltre, devo anche dire che scrivi proprio bene l'Inglese. Bravo!

    Marco.

    Hi Grant,
    thank you!
    That's a (very) old Denon Dvd A1, it has been modified with a totally new output stage, fed by a new dedicated power supply. The machine has 2 digital inputs and so I use it mainly as dac.
    I like it so much... sometimes I come up with the idea of replacing it with something more recent and performing, but when I think of the necessary costs I immediatly put a stop to it :-D
