Chimaera Hifi & Home Theater
« on: August 04, 2019, 23:45 »
Hi Guys

I've just moved back to Singapore from Hong Kong for work. I brought back my gear that I have amassed in HK although some are bought here. So decided to do a home theater setup in my living room in a 4 room HDB that I bought before moving to HK. Went the whole hog and it turned out pretty sweet. I have an understanding wife which is highly important. Hence without further ado the gear list as below:

Home theater 7.1 system
Projector: Sony VPL-VW-260ES, native 4k
Screen Custom 82 'Crystal White' inch drop down projector from Cyrus, gain 1.1
TV: LG OLED 55EG9100 wall mounted
Preamp/Proc: Nuprime HD-AVP
Power amp: Nu prime MCH-K38
Source: Pioneer LX500 & Sony X700 blu ray, StarHub box.
Speakers 5 Sonus Faber Liuto Smart (LCR and Rear), wall mounted
Speakers RBH VA 815 ( height or surround backs) in ceiling speakers
Subwoofers: REL S5
Cooling : AC Infinity Aircon T10

Hifi
Source: Lumin U1 Mini & Denafrips Terminator DAC
AMP: Vitus RI100 Integrated amp
Speakers: Legacy Signature SE in Black Pearl & AAD 7001 Reference Monitor
Subwoofer: REL G2

Power : Dedicated power line drawn from mains, out to 3 MSHD Powerplug Cryo treated.  Z Power Bar (all source & HT) , Shunyata Venom Amp 1 (Vitus), PS audio Duet (REL subwoofers)
Sound treatments: Vicoustic
Cables: Mix of Zu, MIT, Nordost, Shunyata etc.
Rack: Solid steel S4.3.

I'll get photos in a bit but below is the ID showcase of the flat with living room/HT shown:

Bro your tv so high, hope your pj screen is much lower or you get sore neck...mid screen ideally at eye level or not much higher
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

Hi there

Yeah the TV screen is a bit high, unfortunately that's due to the center speaker and the equipment rack positioning we got used to it and adopt a slack seating position on the couch. Lol..

Congrats on a nice set up.

That's the drop down screen. From the photo angle does look like Aircon. Lol..
