Even though good looks has never made anything sound good, most people still listen with their eyes... If it looks good, it must sound good.

This is my first up close "studio shot" attempt. Comments welcome

Thanks.

What surprised me is that the walls and floor did not reflect any of the LEM lights I set up in the model. I thought I would have had to spend hours on getting it as it is in Photoshop. Well, I spent exactly 2 minutes finalizing the image in PS. I am still scratching my head about that. It looks like walls and floor acted as a black hole in the rendering process except for the objects sitting on the floor which are perfectly reflected. Right outside the reflective areas the light is equal to 0. The black is as black as can be. This is fantastic for this kind of shot.
The ceiling is light grey with LEM set at 4. It reflects perfectly in the vacuum tubes, but is totally absorbed by the walls and floor. Walls are set at 0 reflection, but should still be affected in color by the light. As for the floor it is set at 15, no blur. The front wall has 3 LEM panels. There is also an extra LEM (dark yellow) at 45 degrees above the preamp. I was expecting a slightly brighter area surrounding the preamp. 
Here is the model. Although, the writing on the floor barely shows on the model, it was created within SketchUp.

Back faces in all of my models are always black. 
Again, there were no issues with the model as I got exactly what I wanted. But I am still puzzled about how I got it right. This would not happen in the real world. 
One of my previous post "MBL Stereo Room" was done similarly. Although the floor was more reflective in that one, I got the ceiling reflected on the floor.

Very nice! Does RT60 refer to Sabine here?

RT 60 refers to reverberation time (decay). Yes Sabine came up with the formula. Also, HP-1A would refer to Headphone Amplifier, in this case it refers to High Precision Acoustics [wink]
The project is based on acoustics... I should have written "eye definition wireless system" on the ear pieces. I thought about it afterwards. 

Thanks!

Just replaced the picture with a slightly modified version. Check the earbuds [smile]
Now the statement is complete.
