To add your system, you must register.

|Amplifier:||Prototype solid-state push-pull amp, based on my previous single-ended amp - "as simple as it needs to be but no simpler!"|
|Preamplifier (or None if Integrated):||DIY tube built into a PAS-3 case. Low-feedback GB-5814A (best 12AU7 sub!) line-stage and zero-feedback MM 6027A phono stage.|
|Speakers:||Modified (re-wired, re-capped) Infinity Monitor-II: bass down to 22 Hz with refined highs from the Walsh tweeter.|
|CD Player/DAC:||Revox B-225: massive transport, parallel DAC, low jitter, sweet and neutral.|
Sony CDP-111: very close to the B-225 with the convenience of a real remote control!
|Turntable/Phono Stage:||Oracle Delphi, Fidelity Research FR64fx, ADC XLM-II, collecting dust because it doesn't have an auto-lift and life is just too short to deal with such esoteric concepts...|
Sugden BD-2 with ADC XLM-II improved - rythm and music on a budget - sweet!
|Speaker Cables/Interconnects:||DIY braided CAT-5 speaker cables and Oritek Audio X-2 prototype interconnects - the best I've heard (my own company...)|
|Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.):||Amp and preamp use shielded power cords and EMI filters.|
|Room Size (LxWxH):||20 x 15 x 8|
|Room Comments/Treatments:||Rugs, couch and a large fabric decor on the side wall.|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Classical, Jazz, classic Rock.|
|System Goals/Comments:||Coherent and natural sound.|
The real goal is to sound not like a system!
|System Strengths:||It does not sound like a system...|
Very 'fast', detailed, resolving - and musical!
|System Weaknesses:||Amps are not brutal, but sufficient for my tastes and room size.|
Vintage equipment also has its drawbacks... The CD players are first generation single-beam, and there are (very few) CDs that one or both cannot handle.
|Video/HT System: None|
|TV/Projector:||51' rear projection Mitsubishi - very basic!|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Ham radio (how predictable...)|
