Beautiful setup. Equipment stands appears to defy gravity…

Some sweet D7.2 speakers for sure.  Just amazed how they have soared in price over the last 5 years or so.  A friend bought a new pair of 7's for $4,500 around 2018, given a nice dealer discount at the time.

Nonetheless, enjoy!


Thanks for your compliments, looks finished from the distance! I need to change the equipment cabinet, delete the very convenient sliding rack and make fixed shelves that allow for wider components and more stability. But will need to cut in an access panel for cabling access. Also want to treat the wall between the cabinets with an absorbing wood slat panels. The room is not bad acoustically given it’s a condo living/dining/kitchen so multiple surfaces to help with dispersion. Speakers are limited from being more than about 300mm from the wall as primary circulation route immediately in front, that limits the sound stage scale. Very happy with the speakers but like any you need to be mindful what you pair them with, accuphase amp has great synergy but also need good recordings as they are revealing by nature.


A stereo setup should be like this superb. I like Spendor sound a lot, have heard D7, the bass is so controlled. What u think Spendor sound?


Really lovely room and nice system dabler! Good luck with your streaming adventure!
