big lobsta's Krell HT System
Last Update: January 15, 2004 at 08:40:12 IP Address:
Amplifier: Krell KAV 250 and KAV 250/3
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Krell HTS
Speakers: Paradigm Reference 100s v2 fronts, Paradigm Reference Center Channel and 60s for rears.
CD Player/DAC: Krell KAV250cd/2; Marantz DV8300 DVDa, SACD
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: I had AudioQuest Granite speaker cables for the front and center. Now I am listening to Zu Cable 'Wax' speaker cables. CalRad 4 twisted strand for the rears. AudioQuest Python XLR or Nordost Red Dawn XLR interconnects, depending my mood, and AQ Coral XLR to sub. All balance interconnects except for the sub have been replaced with Zu Cable Warmouth interconnects. I found that the Zu Warmouth is in-between the AQ and Nordstrom and more to my liking. Will this ever end?
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): APC LineR 600, APC Office Pro350 battery backup and surge protector. Salamander Synergy Twin 40 in maple with black steel inserts.
Tweaks: Chris VH's DIY power cables (flavor #1, http://www.geocities.com/venhaus1/diymains.html). Please note I do not have anymore Belden 83802. I am looking for more and will post an ad when I do acquire more (10/6/02).

Music Used (Genre/Selections): Basically all the concerts I never went to in the 70s and 80s are now available in 5.1 (DD/dts). Classical, Jazz, New Age, Cultural, and Rock.
System Goals/Comments: This system is an upgrade after being bitten by the hometheater audiophile bug.
System Strengths: I am still tweaking it but one thing is for sure I am listening to more music outside my realm of a few years ago. You can say it has broaden my appreciation for music like jazz especially from Cuba.
System Weaknesses: Neighbors. Too many remotes. This system is not a year old yet and I am still digesting it.
