DIY braided cat5 speaker cable
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Dedicated 20amp power circuit with commercial grade outlet. No other power treatment. Only need to plug in the int. amp and CDP, so the single outlet serves me.
Tweaks: Vibrapods under CDP. System sitting on two birch ply record crates (full of records)which are sitting on a single 1.25" MDF plank which is spiked to the hard wood floor (on nickels)
The CDP is also sitting on MDF and sometimes I'll weight the top with 20 pounds or-so on top of another piece of MDF cut just for the job.
The B&Ws are spiked with their factory spikes.
Room Size (LxWxH): 17 ft x 17 ft x 7.5ft
Room Comments/Treatments: 24x24x4" ATS bass traps in back corners, 12x24" DIY Absorption panels of 2 inch Owens Corning 705 in four corners. Plants used for dispersion.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All but Opera, Cock-Rock and Country.
Particularly like Acoustic Jazz such as Coltrane and Monk, I love Leonard Cohen, Lambchop, Tom Waits, Beefheart, Will Oldahm, Dylan, Schubert Quintets, Beethoven Symphonies, Mozart Piano Concertos, Arvo Part, the AuPairs, Mekons, Greg Brown, Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens.
System Goals/Comments: I will achieve a state of satisfaction where I won't be obsessing about acquiring new/better equipment.
System Strengths: My beautiful wife. She supports me in doing what I need to the living room and our bank account (I won't go in to debt for any of this) in service of good sound.
System Weaknesses: Not enough time to listen. I have to go to work.
Video/HT System: None
TV/Projector: 19 inch curbside feebee CRT in the spare bedroom.
