This is an old picture from when the CMCs first came out. Got a T-Shirt out of the deal. I'd give the T-Shirt back to get my money back for the QC and CH :lol:

I have three monitors set up at present and thats cool too. They are all old resolution 4/3 aspect but I can now spread the project over two screens and get the MIxer on a third to the right.

I have been running dual screens for a while now in 19 in - about a decade.

I may well do something similar with the new big screen - one big one and two satelaitesw either side. See how things go.

It all goes down to how good your sound treatment is in your working area and as you say monitor placement , by me at least this has been taken in to consideration ;)


Yeah, thats how I know :lol: I would have more but just couldn't find space where they worked without destroying the sound, within a reasonable viewing angle that is!

Ah... I thought you could put a similar one in front of the left speaker to balance things up (only joking)

Fair point ;) The studio does need a sort at present. I am working in Surround so you cant see a lot of it in the pic

Just found out that Curry's have cancelled my order for the 42" in apparently LG have none in stock. Sounded too good to be true

Looking at your setup, I would have thought a 42" that close would be way to big!!!

Remember the resolution is still just 1920 by 1080 even on a 60"

A couple of nice 24" monitors would give you 3840 by 1080 and not make you go crosseyed.

I thought I saw a Russian doll?

Funnily enough I just bought one of these http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-47LM620T-3d-tv but it's for my living room not the studio.

I think so, I didn't get it for the 3D but it was on offer in Richersounds and got a free 5 year guarantee.
Turns out the sales person uses one of my practice rooms :lol:
