Great system. Very cool stuff... I'm sure you know what my favorite pieces are! Those monoblocks are just amazing.

How are the acoustics of the environment? Looks like a difficult room to set up correctly with the large glass window and tight space. Do you use any acoustic treatments or find the room fine as it is?

Again, awesome setup, congrats.

Actually pictures can be very misleading. It’s actually a darn good sounding room. πŸ˜‰

I do use some RT in addition to big lp rack. Some Cathedral and Aperture panels adorn spots in the room along with some ancient Room Tunes at room nodes.

Yes, I was thinking exactly the same thing...

Having those big monoblocks that deliver well over 300w/ch, would require a much larger room to work in full effect.
I have been to many places where they have elaborate systems but the room is a total mess, even if treated with all sorts of gizmo's and room correction software, the basics are still critical for system placement.

But as Myles has clearly pointed out here, it is quite difficult to tell from photos... plus we haven't listened to Myles's room, therefore obviously difficult to judge.

Great gear Myles and I have now listened to the ART150 stereo version, simply marvelous driving the Martin Logan Ren15A's, partnered with the GATS2.
A true SOTA system no doubt!

Cheers and have a good one,
