Speakers: Silverline Sonatina *Avalon* style speakers setting on granite blocks w/ Maplshade brass cones underneath and Ebony wood b/w the cone points and granite blocks
CD Player/DAC: Audio Note CDT-2 transport setting on Polycrystal shelf and Walker Audio Ultimate brass triple point cones. Omega Mikro's best Ebony Planar digital cable leading to an AudioMeca Enkianthus DAC II.X using symposium rollerblocks and both DAC and transport using Omega MIkro Active power cords
Turntable/Phono Stage: n/a
Other Source(s): n/a
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: SC's are Omega Mikro's latest (2004)Planar Silver Active cables leading into Bybee Ultimate speaker filters on both top and bottom posts w/ Walker Audio High Definition Links on top posts also. From DAC to pre using Omega Mikro Ebony Active interconnects (older tube style using 56 GA. wire). From Pre to amp using Nordost Valhalla RCA ICs or sometimes Audio Magic Clairvoyant 4-D. Getting ready to try RSA Poiema here too and old reference was original Pure Note Epsilon. Never had anything buy Ebony from DAC to pre though!
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Audio Magic Stealth feed from dedicated line w/ Acme Silver Cryo outlet by Elrod EPS-3 signature PC and Quantum paralell line filters in various outlets around the house
Tweaks: Lots of Shakti Stones walker tuning discs, ERS sheets Herbie Tube Dampers, Symposium, DH Cones, Orchid Bay, Maleshade, and Walker Audio cones. Bass traps tweaks around room in corners and behind speakers.
Room Size (LxWxH): 12 x 15 x 8
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Female accoustic, alternative rock, classic rock and some jazz
System Goals/Comments: always trying to get that *you are at a live performance* feeling of transparency and front row soundstage emphasis
System Strengths: Great midrange vocal clarity w/ huge center-fill realism and very accurate accoustic reproduction.
System Weaknesses: Due to room size could use a little more soundstage depth and w/ only 35 wpc I sometimes think a litle more bass whack! would be nice, that is why I sometimes swap out the power tubes and the Valhalla ICS for the Clairvoyant 4-D.

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Denon 4800
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Infinity
