Wilson's Listening room System
IP Address: Last Update: August 09, 2012 at 11:25:43
Amplifier: Pioneer SX-1010

(c. 1975, 100 WPC, Much better than several more modern integrateds I've tried, such as Cambridge, Primare, etc.)
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None
Speakers: Meadowlark Heron i

CD Player/DAC: Sony Playstation 1, Denon CD player/recorder. The Playstation is more enjoyable.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Rotation of Pioneer PL-610, Presto idler, LP12 w/Grace 707, and AR-XA modded w/Grace 707 arm. All run to a Jasmine phono stage. (The Pioneer is my current favorite.) Dynavector 20x2L on the Pioneer, and Rega arms. Shure V15-RS w/Jico SAS on the Grace.
Other Source(s): Onkyo cassette deck
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:

Tweaks: Cable lifters from Signal Cable.
Room Size (LxWxH): 18 x 15 x 8
Room Comments/Treatments: DIY absorption panels flanking both sides of the system. Carpeted floor.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, Classical, select funk & R&B, and classic rock.
System Goals/Comments: Speakers should disappear. Provide a sense of the performance venue. Be able to play softly or loudly with equal ease and involvement.
System Strengths: Comes pretty close to doing the above. Full-range sound without a subwoofer. Pretty big soundstage. No deficiencies or problems that distract or keep me from forgetting the system and enjoying the music.
System Weaknesses: Soundstage might be a bit bigger with a little better imaging. I may be able to help that with better/different room treatments, especially diffusors.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Musician and college instructor of saxophone and jazz studies
