My home was built in 1882, the room is dedicated music only. Had original floor taken up and installed plywood under layer screwed on, new hardwood floor installed, so the whole floor is very tight, filled the cavities with fire retardant soundproof insulation. One of the biggest non audio up grades was the installation of solar panels on the roof. The change was like someone through a switch and everything locked into focus. You can never have enough clean power.

So far this month about 634Kwh produced. Upper and lower roof with 23 Panels.


Nice room and equipment, you say you use solar panels, how much power do you get from that, do you need many panels?


Clean and beautiful set up. Love that you give the 948s space to breathe.
