|Preamplifier (or None if Integrated):||Sugden Headmaster|
But I use my Sennheiser HD 540 Reference Gold headphones for all attentive listening, so they are the "speakers" that matter here.
The Rogers db101s are in fact either side of my computer monitor and I use them for background music while I work.
|CD Player/DAC:||Sugden CDMaster|
|Other Source(s):||Soon my Mac Pro will be a source after I've bought a suitable DAC.|
|Speaker Cables/Interconnects:||Qed Reference Audio 1 interconnects. These are budget cables. The speaker cables are in fact entirely budget ones at present with no particular name.|
|Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.):||It all goes on WallNut II shelves which are rawl bolted to a brick wall. It is very sturdy stuff.|
|Room Size (LxWxH):||12 ft x 10 ft x 8 ft|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||99% of the music I listen to is classical.|
I love the impressionists, such as Debussy and Ravel of course. Right now I'm listening to Isaac Albeniz's Iberia orchestrated by Francisco Guerrero.
|System Goals/Comments:||I think that the next thing for me to get is an additional pair of headphones. I've had my Sennheiser HD 540 Reference Gold's for 20 years and I love them, but I think that the latest headphones from AKG or Sennheiser might be good for me. I quite fancy a pair of AKG 701s.|
|System Strengths:||I think the communication of the music is very good indeed. The resolution is excellent. The sound with the HeadMaster is vivid.|
|System Weaknesses:||I think that other systems probably have better sound-staging. People that really want a very great amount of PRaT might prefer something different.|
|Video/HT System: None|
