Looks clean. Well done!
I ask this question to almost every owner who has a dedicated music setup. The left speaker is too close to the equipment rack and there's a stand mounted TV between the speakers. Do they impact the phantom image and stage? Because the space between and behind the speakers contribute a lot to these aspects of the stereo reproduction.

Well ...
I have not tried the stereo chain in the same place without TV

But don't feel that image, centering, depth is suffering because of such an arrangement

Cheers,

I had the TV between the speakers for sometime and when the TV was moved to a different place, the depth and clarity of the centre image and instruments significantly improved. I understand that not everyone is gifted to have dedicated stereo listening setup, but these experiments worth the attempt!

As "raghubp" said even I have not experienced any image, centering, depth issues with this setup, or maybe I have not used this TV separately to observe the changes. However this setup is gone as of today. As I said in my post this room will have purely a stereo setup in a few days with these below systems.

Stereo Setup
Yamaha AX-397 - Stereo Amplifier
Mission LX2 - Speakers
Nakamichi Cassette Deck 2 - Tape Player
Nakamichi OMS-1A - CD Player
Popcorn Hour A300 - Network Media Player
Cambridge Audio CP1 - Pre-amplifier
Akai AP-206C - Turntable
