Now that is one awesome boom room!!!!!!!  I love how you incorporated the Electronic QB in with the smaller blasters.  I spent countless hours of my childhood mastering that game!

 

Yeah, got to have the proper games to go with the radios! 

 

Very kool! I'm diggin that coffee table that the Atari is sitting on.. :yes:
Also got a kick out of seeing the VZ-2000 amongst the smaller boxes..
Mini, little, little, GARGANTUAN BLASTER! :lol:

 

ha ha, yeah, the VZ looks even BIGGER among the mini's!

 

That room is massive, is it the entire ground floor of the property. I didn't realise you took so many boxes with you to Italy, for some reason I thought you only had like maybe 10 max :lol:

Anyway, very enjoyable vid, a great collection of retroness :yes:

 

The down stairs of this house is an apartment, or maybe like a "Mother-in-law" room. It has a full kitchen, bathroom with shower and laundry room. There is also a laundry room on the main floor. I'm totally self contained down here!  :thumbsup:

The first "Official Party" in the boom room took place last night. My wife and I invited over some other American's that we met when we first moved here. They checked in and were in the orientation meetings with us. It was a husband and wife and two other ladies who's husbands haven't arrived yet, so a total of 6 of us.

 

I have my radio station transmitter set up so the whole house is getting my play list and I have the Sharp GF-9191 on the main floor providing a nice level of background music. 

 

We gave them a tour of the house and of course finished with the "Boom Room". When they all came down stairs one girls yells out "Oh my god you have a disco with a dance floor!".

 

:-D YES, YES WE DO! :thumbsup:

 

I had my Marantz home stereo playing my radio station and had a few radio's with batteries going, the JVC 3090, J1 and the C100. 

 

So, after we ate and after we sat on the porch and enjoyed the afternoon breeze, (with the Panasonic FM45 playing my radio station) we made our way down to the bar. By this time the ladies were into a few bottles of wine and the other fellow and I had had some beers. The music was still at a normal level while we played some Space Invaders and Combat on the Atari....and then it happened!  :-O

 

One girl screamed out "THIS IS MY SONG"

 

Straight out to the dance floor they all went!

 

My home computers are all linked using team viewer, so I was able to access the computer controlling the radio station up on the top floor, which in turn gives me access to the MASTER VOLUME. With one click of the mouse, all the radio's increased in volume and we never looked back!

 

As the band 38 Special once said "We were Rockin' into the Night!"

 

....and now I am horribly hung over  :sick: BUT, it was worth it!

Dear me, that's an amazing story - my, how I laughed!  :yes:  :lol:  Thanks to your excellent video I could picture the whole thing, your hangover has been well earned and (I feel) a sign of things to come in your new Boom House.  :yes:  :-D  :rock:

Thanks M.O.M., I'm still totally wrecked. I drank a bloody mary and a beer, trying the ol' "Hair of the dog that bit ya", but I still feel like utter hell.

 

So, I have already made some purchases via eBay. First, more shelving to get everything un-stacked and second, DISCO LIGHTING!!!!!

 

Music is only part of the equation! MORE TO COME!  :-D

The way things are heading I'd suggest some safety barriers for your collection as well!

Well, I broke every rule of drinking there is. I started on Beer, then had a glass of wine, then back to beer, then some shots of whiskey with beer, then a shot of Tequila and more beer  :bang:  :drunk:

You guys are awesome!! I had a beer last night after work. As I reached for another, my nagging wife said 'If you have another beer, you won't have any left for tomorrow night'! :-(

That's right, I've only got one beer left to get me through until pay day Friday!

Damn it sucks being poor! :-)

What kind of camera are you using? Great picture.

This was filmed with the DJI Osmo steady cam system with the Z axis extension.

 

It literally makes it look like you are gliding along.

Shelving Complete

 

These shelving systems are a lot of work. Sizing each shelf to each radio took 10 1/2 hours to do all five units. But I think it came out nice. Hundreds of little screws  :bang:

I rearranged these shelves as well, probably will again

We have our own villa, fairly private, no real neighbors, mostly in the agriculture area north of Napoli. So volume is not an issue.

 

Thanks for your kind word brother  :yes:
