You have like 10 albums, and 200 records.

Finally have a camera that will at least take a viewable photo, so I thought I would share some pics. Speaker placement is not ideal, but it is a work in progress.    

This topic is giving me such a woody.   I collected fiercely in the 1990s, in retrospect the best time possible since everybody was dumping LPs. I'd spend $100 or $200 at Jerry's in Pittsbur

Those the Foremost cubes?  Been using those for about 10 years now.  While not the prettiest they really get the job done well.

That they are!

 

They're ok. As I use the black ones, they're not too noticeable. The front of the room where the rolltop deks, CRT TV, speakers, and storage cabinet (upon where the TV rests), etc is all in dark wood, so that side looks nice and when you're in the room, you're pointed away from the foremost cubes. :)

Found our loungeroom was getting really cluttered so ive done a swap with some new Kallax shelves in lieu of the old Expedits......Using the white shelves and dropping the heigh has just made the room feel heaps more open

I also moved a few months ago, and decided that since my two 2x2 Expedits were basically full, it was time for an upgrade.

I'm really happy with the new 4x4 Kallax and all of the room I have for expansion! Still not too crazy about having to have my turntable and receiver separate from the shelf, but idk if it would look right having them sitting on top of the Kallax since it's so tall. It would make hooking the speakers up way easier, though... what do y'all think?

I like the cabinets along the bottom row a lot. Is that an Ikea thing? Also, What speakers do you have?

You can buy those doors as add-ons at IKEA. Great for keeping small pets out of the bottom row.

Yep  they are the Door inserts that Ikea sell as add ons for the Kallax series. They are a bit of a pain to install but once they are in they look great. 

 

Speakers are Bose 301s - I got them at a rediculous price and prefered them to the Wharfedales that i was running. I also have it all connected through the roof and into the outdoor entertainment area to Bose Outdoors as well.....they pump

Ah! I should've guessed Bose with that horizontal form factor. Out of curiosity, which Wharfedales were you using before?

Diamond 10.1s.....i did  an A/B test and these sounded so much brighter. But value for money, if i was paying rrp id probably take the Wharfedales, i just happened to get the Bose 301s dirt cheap.

Bit of tinkering in the man cave ... some 20mm redwood timber, some rough work trials on ergonomics ... what is the verdict?

The verdict is you dont need to post the same stuff in every thread with the words storage in it
