    The chair is NOT cheap but a fantastic listening chair that I have been searching for years. Strolled across it on another audio site and was flabbergasted by its price and wait time BUT still a lot cheaper than my speaker wires and IMHO no less important.
    So basically in other words what you are saying is audio can only be enjoyed by folks who has a perfect listening chair capable of buying it from a manufacturer who provides leather to companies like Ferrari...Sigh!

    Not really, any chair will work, its up to the listener. You can always set in this

    Re: Finally a listening chair

    Here's an idea. Have you seen the recent commercials from Lincoln promoting their new auto seat? Completely electrically adjustable in many dimensions including the headrest.
    Find one at an auto salvage yard, make a wooden base for it to house a 12V power pack and your in audio heaven.
    My System:
    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, A MicroRendui, a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, & or Valvet E-2, Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, APC power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.

    Love it. Now if they would just sculpt the top to match the size of the headrest.

    Did I say that or did you say that?

    I found "MY perfect" chair after years of looking. My "personal belief" is that if I am investing what I am into my system, I want to get every last ounce of pleasure it is capable of. For me, a recliner, high back chair or a coffee table mitigates what my system is capable of. To others, if their enjoyment comes from reclining with a high back Stressless, Eames or whatever they choose and that enjoyment overrides the impact the music brings them, that's their business. However, make NO mistake, when a designer of a speaker designs them, he/she is designing them with an appropriate listening height, without a high headrest. It's all a choice and the latter is not mine.

    I can only state what works with me and the chair I chose pushes all my buttons. I said "my perfect listening chair".

    As to the leather which seems to send shivers down your spine, the point is that the company uses fine leather.

    I see you are from the Bay Area with the typical intolerance that pervades the air there. Learn to read and not put words in people's mouth. SIGH!

    Re: Finally a listening chair

    That is a great chair CPP. Did you make them or have them made? Love the rich look of the walnut with the industrial look of the steel.

    Nice variation on the mid century modern "Z Chair".
