Dr. Philosophy's System No. 4 System
Last Update: December 11, 2006 at 10:03:21 IP Address: 80.47.87.23
Amplifier: Bose control unit: Lifestyle 1. Cambridge Audio integrated amp.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None.
Speakers: DIY single-driver backloaded horns (using Fostex 106FE, and Fostex-recommended horn).
Sources:
CD Player/DAC: The Bose unit!
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Lamp cord, ratshack ICs.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Radio 3 and 4, jazz, music for sex, music for going to sleep.
System Goals/Comments: An exercise into putting the money into the speakers, everything was driven by non-sonic considerations. The aim was to be cheap, unobtrusive, with a reliable remote. Since I built the speakers, not so unobtrusive. For the bedroom.
System Strengths: Very nice radio-controlled (not infrared) remote control, and the speakers are astonishing for the price (230 to build).
System Weaknesses: The Bose cdp is awful. If you want to hear the worst of CD, connect a cdp like this to some very transparent speakers like these: ouch! I need a good cdp that can drive long cables, with a volume control and a very good remote.
Video/HT System: None
