The ceiling height will be around 12 to 14 feet.
accuphase’s house sound is best described as more reserved, refined, subtle, natural, with less overt treble and deep bass emphasis... more about making the midrange be the magic... there is sufficient detail, sparkle and air but it is presented in a very non-aggressive unobtrusive way
not the best to impress your hifi friends for a short audition, but excellent for long term ownership and hours of engaging listening... in short, it is more the girl you marry, not one you pick up for a fling...
@lalitk what are your thoughts? I’m going to see Guns and Roses next month in Bangkok. So I will have a day or two to audition some gear. I’m just not real familiar with the products here as opposed to the US. I’m scaling down and the wife has to be happy too! Also i am not used to 220/240 power. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Given the limited availability, I recommend lining up audition with dealers in Bangkok. You should hear few systems and decide which system or a component floats your boat. I would steer clear of boutique brands, a reputed well established dealer should afford you a wide range of brands from Europe, US and Japan. If you’re downsizing, Integrated from Gryphon ~ Diablo 300 comes to mind.
I appreciate all of the insight gentleman. As I’m sure you most can understand. I have the bug. I’m overwhelmed and thrilled with being able to build a new system. I understand synergy and the importance of the way different components work together. I just really have the itch to do something I’ve never thought of or tried. I’ve heard great things about the Gryphon 300. Although I’ve actually never listened to one. It’s a love/hate hobby. I love it. My max budget is 25k. I’m open to all idea’s. I’d like to hear your thoughts. Thank you
