Analog music sources, Technics SP10 MK3 and Studer A810 Archival half + quarter track IEC and NAB.

Allnic H3000 and L3000 pre and phono into a single pair of VTL 750.

The entire space (18' X 31') is acoustically treated with RPG panels and/or fiberglass over triple reinforced walls and ceiling. Floor is lamination beams over steel plates and two 5/8 epoxy floor. Above that floats 1.5" of concrete and half inch float for India multi color slate tiles.
All the reinforcement and acoustic treatment goes unnoticed, due to Whisper Wall rail system and fine textured acoustic cloth covering everything. In these photos (and often in person) it passes for painted sheetrock.
Room was designed by RBDG. The entire space was torn out to bare dirt floor and open studs nine years ago.
Thanks for looking.
