Fave listening chair?


#1

Paul recently mentioned a new classy bum perch he was considering for his listening pleasure.

My system chair is a retro relic, kinda Jetsons, a color that would gag a maggot!:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

What are you sitting on to listen?


#2

Stressless

Ooh, what is that Chair? Nice! Especially as I want it to be short in the back/below the ears. Don’t look at a chair as an observer, as often as I sit in it and face forward, so don’t care so much what color it is ; )


#4

Dig those too, brett. Lay back and listen… : )

My current one is very similar.


#5

Not sure. Got it on consignment at a retro furniture store in PDX. Appreciate that the swivel bearings and race are really smooth, and I do like my head/ears clear of the chair back too.

Brett66… classy! I like the footrest (might need to find a matching ottoman.) george-jetson-reads-newspaper

Current Chairs


#7

The Traditional is for a Reason.

I was just in MR2 this week, and the “new” chair was not in there and there was an old-school chair - even less comfy than those, that floated my boat. Just sayin’ ; )

The back articulates to support the head as one reclines. They make them in all colors and a few styles, different bases and with and without the built-in leg rest, separate ottoman.

I had it for 20 years and it’s as good as new. Very nice leather and construction.

That one would be awesome for when the kids visit : )

Take the speakers off the stands…


#11

Since the Mende futon is so low, with practically no ‘legs’ whatsoever, I have my speakers set up on IsoAcoustics Iso-200’s just as low. That way the drivers are exactly aligned with my ears.

Having said that, in practice none of this matters as it is so pleasing that I often fall asleep in this futon while listening to music, and the Missus has to come down with the blanket. Ahhh confy.


#12

IKEA POÄNG with additional movable cushion pillows to adjust comfort. Instead of putting the money on Stressless, I put it in extra audio gear.


#13

Great chair, kinda laid-back angle-wise, and low to the ground with respect to most speakers - and feel free to chop the headrest off ; )


#14

Also since I am not right in the head :grin: , when purchasing the new chair I took into consideration its shape and ondulations as in how that would effect the sound. As well as the cloth type (chenille) to help with the room’s absorption levels.


#15

My neck does stick out over the back. Also have a 2x4 lifting the back up, kinda like Paul had those in the MR1…I hacked it a little.


#16

This is the one I used when CD’s were first released.


#17

Y’know…it is that kind of thing. Sortof like…everything else in this hobby. Who gives a … what anyone else thinks?

#19

Awesome : )

I need to have my head in a vise, otherwise, I’m not really enjoying myself. The Perfect Audiophile Chair.
