|Turntable/Phono Stage:|| Ariston RD-11 Superieur with SME II (3009R)arm; my reference turntable and another beautiful and rare John Carrick design. Had a direct drive Kenwood KD500 "rock" table, but it was just taking up space so I sold it to some strunz on ebay.|

|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Anything and everything by Jeff Beck. The early Who, the Rolling Stones, Yardbirds (w/Beck), Love w/Arthur Lee, Mott the Hoople, early Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Free.....60s thru 80s, Nirvana, Love (60's L.A.band), Tom Petty & Heartbreakers, and Mudcrutch. 60's U.S. garage bands, and plenty of British blues; especially by Peter Green/OLD Fleetwood Mac. And... Albert King, Willie Dixon, McKinley Morganfield. Bass playing, singing, songwriting, piano playing, and cello playing of Jack Bruce, my all-time favorite.|
|System Goals/Comments:||I love this system, because I put it together simply, relatively cheaply, and it sounds great! Have had much high-end audio over the years, but there's something basic and special about this system that I like best. Good as they sound, I don't miss messing with tubes. But only use tube bass amps.|
|System Strengths:||Great warm but tight bass, live sounding mids and highs. That amp is a killer.|
|System Weaknesses:||Nothing glaring.|
But I can't lift the Kenwood 600 alone, unless I want lifetime paralysis.
|Video/HT System: None|
