Hello everyone. This is my first post, and hopefully it is in a format acceptable to this forum.
I am trying to gift a system to someone. The person loves music, enjoys high quality sound, but is not at all interested in learning anything about systems, hi fi or technology of sound.
The room it would go in is nearly a circle. It is also nearly all glass (due to views), and with a mix of wood and rug flooring. Sound does not bounce as much as one would expect.
Although the space is a good size, the dining and sitting areas will never need different sound volumes.
My goals are: 1) achieve sound excellence; and 2) Hide most of the system as much as possible.
I have three scenarios depicted as attached.
- BLUE. Four Sonos One + Sub
- RED. Two Sonos Five + 2 Sonos One
- GREEN. One Sonos Five + 3 Sonos Ones + 1 Sub
Would much appreciate if you would give me your preference, and reasons for why.
Or, please give me an alternative other than those shown.
Many thanks in advance for your responses.
p.s. currently there is Mu So by Naim on the table by the door. Decent sounding when it does not give you an electric shock when you touch it. Yes, you read that correctly.
