    Which sound better in that room, translate to other playback devices accurately?

    ^ Nice, btw I ended up copying your idea with the Ikea Magnarp lamps, it looks great and gives a nice moody atmosphere for the studio :yesway:

    I'l post a picture later.

    What monitors are those?

    That's the thing... they both sound gorgeous and seem to translate equally well.

    Cool! They're definitely great lamps for the money. Post a pic when you can :) Given To Fly nailed it, these are both Amphions, the One15's and Two15's.

    Tirmu, I'm intrigued on how you installed the leds in the back of the monitor...Are they the standard IKEA led color strip?

    It's basic led strip from ebay with adhesive on the back... I lined the edges of the back of the monitor with it. Works very well! :)

    I agree! You can use one long strip if you make a loop in every corner. That way you don't have to cut the strips or use several.

    Sorry, these question have nothing to do with lighting:

    What kind of bass traps do you have in the corners? I did not notice them the first time around which is something people rarely say about bass traps. Also, which pair of monitors did you decide on? How will you be powering them?

    Hofa basstraps, I ordered them from here: Hofa Basstrap Creme

    I have 2 of them stacked in each corner. I'm leaning towards the Amphion Two15's with the Amp500 although I still have both pairs...

    My turn!! I apologize for the poor photo quality. Any advice on any stand for my KRK? They are way to big for my desk so I'd like to raise them a little bit.

    Photos are fine! I recommend IsoAcoustics stands (check out my pictures above).

    Slowly getting there. Moved to a new apratment a few months ago that had a walking closet of 3 squaremeters that i've made in to my studio.

    Just got room for one guitar in there so still need to have the rest of the arsenal in the livingroom but that is OK!

    Gonna add some wallmounts for the monitors and also buy a Dell ultrawidescreen get out the most of it but still gonna try to get it as simple as possible in the small area.

    Hope you guys like it!

    Hello. I'm somewhat new to this forum and I thought I would share my studio set up. I love to look at pics of other people's studios and see how diverse they are, from very simple to very complex. I look forward to being a part of the community.

    Welcome Xcaliber, nice lil setup you have there.
    Care to share more about the desk? I like how compact of a footprint it is, but still accommodates some rack space and room for a 49 key controller.
