    Re: Media Room.... turntable integration

    Maybe everyone know this already, but when it comes to unlocking your music, WHERE the turntable & rack are located in the room can be a deal maker or breaker...

    IMO & IME, of course...

    Hi Jim...Where would be the best place for the turntable to be located in a room that's roughly 18.6' X 14.2' with speakers on the short wall?

    Never in a corner, and preferably not on the front wall behind the speakers, nor on the rear wall. Not adjacent to a speaker. Somewhere on the side wall, as long as it's not the first reflection point from the speakers...

    Do not want the turntable in any area where the bass might be reinforced.

    Re: Media Room.... turntable integration

    After I tried the top shelf for a week, I shortened the rack, and suspended the turntable on a dedicated shelf from the wall. Anyone walking on the second floor upset the music when the TT was on the floor rack. Couple angle irons and slab of butcher block fixed it all. I did choose a convenient level for TT alignment, and record placement while standing.

    Having read Jimís book, my rack, and TT are on the side wall, with amps only between the speakers, on amp stands.
    Amp : DIY FirstWatt M2x mono amps
    Digital : Bricasti M12, Oppo 203
    Analog : Technics SL1200G, DIY K&K Audio Maxxed Phono Amp
    Speakers : Zu Audio Druid V
    Headphone : BHSE + Voce
