    Default Control Room remodeling is finished!

    Well, after many, many hours of cabinetry and interior design, the control room remodeling project from the summer is now finished! What I thought would only take about a week took well over a month to complete, but it was worth it.

    I built the custom desk that is seen in the photos, as well as the racks underneath and solo. Thanks to the many ideas that were shared with me from many of you several months back. Here is a link to some photos of the new room (old pictures can be seen on my current website for comparison)...

    Very nice! That looks like a room that someone could spend hours mixing in.

    Very nice, I like the finish, the earthy colors, it looks very comfortable.

    I am however concerned about the positioning of your loudspeakers, they seem to be positioned like headphones. Are you sure this position isn't affecting the stereo image?

    Very nice. It makes my out-of-control room look shoddy by comparison.

    Thanks for the compliments! I do not claim to be a cabinet maker/carpenter, but I do enjoy carpentry, for the most part. I guess you have to to tackle a project such as that desk.

    The room is also not as bright as the pictures tend to show. The camera was set to produce a nicely, exposed photo. The lighting is usually nice and low, and easy on the eyes.

    That "LA-2A" was another project I completed a little over a year ago. Most of the hardware was from a kit offered by Bloo Technologies (a guy from over at the Prodigy forums). He no longer offers those kits, which contain the very nice custom-made rack mount enclosures. That was the nice thing about the kit--that enclosure. Internally, other than the transformers, it's built identical to an LA-2A. I even used vintage wire I found at a community college, and NOS carbon resistors (in certain places) that had been in storage for over 30 years! My unit has Sowter transformers, and yes, it sounds amazing!
