just looking at the mess. MASSIVE FAIL!

I feel sorry for the musical instruments in that room!
That guy needs to hire a feng shui expert, it's a very distressing room.

Highly unlikely his wife/S.O. join him for a listening session...it is what that's for, right?

I like it, very interesting taste and style to that. Probably got a lot of things going on in the other rooms too. Sex dungeons and what not, lol!

For example, what is the turntable on the left of the picture? Are those Wadia components on the right side with the blue light?

Do Trong Xuan apparently has his own feng shui, and plenty more where that came from! Mrs. looks happy too! I'd love to join them and hear their favorite tunes!

sacd is agreeable substitute for vinyl

clothing required to avoid upholstery stains

hands WILL be clean while handling program material

critcism of sound allowed by authorized personnel

critics can ONLY be authorized by myself

great performances on excellent recordings preferred

great recordings of crummy music verboten

great music on crummy recordings preferred over just above mentioned
