Hi, I have recently updated my sound system for my desktop HIFI speakers
current configuration:
Speakers: B&W 601 S2
Amp: Naim Nait 5
I don't have the largest room, give or take 3mX3m so i need to be careful about placement. For 90% of usage i will be sitting in my desk chair so speakers on desk (probably...) is essential.
As shown in pictures my second monitor is above both DAC and amp even the slightest jolt would knock it off which will not be permanently workable
I have just received my DAC which is quite large (in perspective), as you can see. I have shelves above my desk but i have read online that it is not good to leave equipment on non-dense elevated shelving, I am aware that you shouldn't really stack them but for now, i don't really have an alternative solution.
If i were to put amp and DAC on the shelves, the Naim is too wide to fit into the shelves so would have to go on the top, but i have a remote so would not be too problematic, will the fact that its positioned to the right of the speakers cause an issue?
How would you suggest i place them to best utilise the space i have?
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance
I am quite new to audiophilia so excuse my newbie statements if there are any!
Thanks again
