Turntable/Phono Stage: Technics SL-1200
Other Source(s): XM receiver
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: AR 14-guage copper for speakers
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): rock, jazz, blues, soul, old country and alt country
System Goals/Comments: Gradually get better, piece by piece, and see what some tube rolling with used, vintage tubes can bring me.
System Strengths: Both the Scott and Fisher are great vintage pieces. Can't decide which one is better. The Scott has a richer tone overall but the Fisher has a better bottom end and just a very impressive sound. Bugle Boy tubes - bought used and cheap - really are nice. So are the Tele's and the early 1960's GEs aren't too shabby either.
System Weaknesses: Fisher 500-C needs alignment (although I don't listen to FM much, so it doesn't matter.) The Scott 299(A) is in excellent shape, was professionaly restored - but needs more efficient speakers to really shine. A larger room would help too.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I work as an attorney in regulatory compliance for a small, independent life insurance company. Not as powerful as it sounds, trust me. :o) I follow the Iowa Hawkeyes (my alma mater) and enjoy checking out what the City of Chicago - my home - has to offer.
