    Dedicated AV room

    Step 1 - OLED on the wall.



    Step 2 - Moving the Magico S3s. The old crate system is mind-boggling $&#%. Crossing the fingers S3s survive the move today. Movers are trying to figure out as I write this. I gave up last night and itís in their hands now.

    Mike, why arenít you in CA again?

    Would looking at the unpacking instructions in the manual help? Follow the directions in reverse?

    I did. But itís very difficult to screw from the speaker bottom to the crate. Each needs 4 screws and I got stuck after one in. Canít find the others using my hands in that tiny space at the bottom where you canít see. I do know the new crate for S3 mk2 is much better and you just roll in and out the speakers on wheels.

    Edit: I just looked it up the manual again. Somehow I didnít have the same foams, mine donít look like the one in the pic. Hmm..oh well, too late.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I realized I didnít have the proper foams. It worked out okay, I havenít set them up yet though. Maybe tomorrow.

    Good luck. I am dreading the day I have to move my S5 MK2, even though I still have the shipping crates.

    Yeah, Mike. Old house was difficult to install dedicated lines too. I should be able to explore that here after things settle down a bit.

    Re: Dedicated AV room

    Looking good! What is your seating arrangement in the room? Are you planning on any acoustic treatments?

    Thatís the plan. And a second 113v2 and/or omega ethernet. Also, A5ís but Iím not in a rush regarding speakers. These S3ís still sound marvelous to me.

    A pair of used Q3 would be another upgrade option, cheaper than A5.
