MarkgM's Happy Happy Joy Joy System
IP Address: Last Update: January 26, 2010 at 10:26:05
Amplifier: Swapping around for the moment
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Same
Speakers: Fuselier "Basic Eights".
CD Player/DAC: Lite-On DD A500GX
Turntable/Phono Stage: Dual 506
Other Source(s): Revox Cassette
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Transparent M-Wave 100s
Room Comments/Treatments: Stand-mount speakers are raised to 26" from floor, w/baffles 40" from wall behind. Conveniently, there are windows right behind each, and french doors in the firing line. Equipment stand is open all around. TT shelf is in-wall to studs (through the drywall)
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): I just have to like it. I don't tend to like "white white" music, but I like every emotion, and I like different directions, I like rhythm, and I like harmony, and here's some faves: Winwood, Miller, Wonder, Stills, Gabriel, Young, Chicago, Lennon, Harrison, Annie Lennox, Amie Mann, Michelle Shocked, MMW, Bjork... Living Color and Beastie Boys... Mozart and Charlie Parker. I have a long 'Yes' history (not sure how that works) I have loved the sounds of Bill Bruford, and Jon Anderson, and ABWH. Much more...
System Goals/Comments: "Acoustic Analog". I don't like sources of great distortion for their own particular idioms. Its all about the music, but, I don't care as much about the level of distortion as I do for "analogous to the original" overall. Dynamics have to be there.
System Strengths: The speakers give me most of my acoustic analog (and dynamics capability). I need vinyl to cleanse myself of digititis, and I also have a good share of CDs.
System Weaknesses: The side walls are completely dissimilar.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: 30" TV, but its behind the speakers (yes!)
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: No - all 2-channel
Comments on HT System: Someday I'll move to a flat screen to enlarge the picture and help clear the area between the speakers, and wherever possible to reduce wattage consumption.
