Oface's a System
IP Address: Last Update: July 05, 2019 at 17:46:30
Amplifier: Elekit TU-8200DX integrated, with Gold Lion KT-88's ( I switch it up with RCA 807's and some TungSol 5881's) and the NOS, GE 12AU7's for drivers.

On the refurb/repair/rebuild bench:

Harmon Kardon Citation II ( as per 3/15/19, almost finished! Hahaha, spring and summer has kept me from finishing, here's to hoping I get it done before 2019 comes to a close!)

Eico HF-81

Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Schiit Saga (gen 1)
Speakers: Altec Model 19's

I have a pair of Urei/Altec 604-8k's that I am building cabs and XO's for.... can't wait to have 604's running again! ( deciding on plans and XO/Network. Will probably go with one of Jeff Markwart's designs)
CD Player/DAC: Files fed from external HD, then to my Intel NUC, then into dac to my amp.
Turntable/Phono Stage: JVC QL-A7 with Schiit Mani

Yamaha PX-3

Yamaha YP-D71

All use various carts.

Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Cheap, using romex 16ga currently.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Some Mil-spec surge protector I have.
Room Size (LxWxH): 30 x 17 x 8.5
Room Comments/Treatments: In need. Planning on building basstraps and panels, Jon Risch flavor.

Not an ideal layout. Open floor plan that opens ( behind the listening position) to the kitchen & breakfast nook, hallway leading to a office and a dining room. Also to the left of the system is the stairway. I sure there is a bit of a bass suckout.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All except new pop/country.
System Goals/Comments: Pretty good sound with what I have for very little $$$ (seriously, we're/I'm talking pennies to the dollar here!) outlay.
System Strengths: Plays music very well.
System Weaknesses: System only lacks due to open layout... need to address room treatment.
Video/HT System: None
