The next logical step.
Move of main equipment rack even further back, by 12.5 inches from last position. The amp is still at the old position, and will move once I have decided that I like the new rack configuration. I have always done it that way, move amp on stand last, because that is a major undertaking (you can't just slide the amp stand on the spikes sitting on disks). Normally the amp stand is quite flush to the main rack, with about 2 inches or less in between, now you can see the gaping distance in between.
As you can see, the main equipment rack is now quite close to the middle tube trap; not sure if I can move it further much, since then I get in trouble with my cabling.
This rack move almost all the way to the front wall of course was a long time coming, but I decided to take it slow and first get acquainted with the sound at each step for a few days before I take the next step. I don't want to overlook some pro and con at each step that might influence the final decision.
How does it sound? Big change, I can say that without exaggeration. Do I completely like it? Not sure yet, but I might. Do I hear advantages compared to the last position? Oh yeah.
I'll report in due time.
