Turntable/Phono Stage: EAR 834P purchased in 2010 - Yes, it's that good. NOS tubes aplenty Hint: let the transformers break in for MC break in before ye judge... .

Clearaudio Concept with Benz Micro Nude Glider SL v2 MC The combination is immense.
Other Source(s): USB out from computer system. Using MOG online music. I think they have the best quality so far. Running out of usb into a Musical Fidelity V-Link to convert the clock to asynchronous. Using optical to the Jitterbug both to decouple from the computer (noise bomb) and immediacy in my system. It was one of my best input(s)until the MC Glider came in & MC Transformers. Long break in. Now, no contest. My pioneer DV-09 S Elite used as transport into my redbook Modded Monarchy 44.1 is very Very very good. I would say the difference is listening to up and oversampled to - redbook, Great redbook. Very Good. Great up-sample by Mog what? 384K @ 24Bits... Big difference in steps... .
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Many. Tara Labs Pandora "S" Space and time, Tara Labs Reference 1 Blue Jeans cables, Right now all the stranded cable is out. I am using only the BJC solid core. It is Killer. I will not go back to stranded.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Dedicated 100amp service for system. Own Breaker box and ground. Belden solid core 10ga solid conductor for 110v all discrete to Hospital grade duplex outlets. 20' 1/2" copper ground rod set and static ground Audio equipment only is on this. Dead black background even with Tubes.
Tweaks: Tubes. Room acoustics, Stand offs Power cords. wrapped some 10ga around the stock cords and noticed a difference. Cesar stone (quartz) isolation platforms. Lots of home made stuff... .
Room Size (LxWxH): 30 x 11 x 8
Room Comments/Treatments: what are you gonna do when you are shooting 11' across a long rectangle. Been working it for years. This can be done.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All of it from the hardest electronic to the most sublime acoustic or vocal. Everything.
System Goals/Comments: Quad Mono block. My Parasounds need to be recapped and are awaiting me on my bench. The Dialogue 7's so so so so good the quad may never happen.
System Strengths: Stage, transparency, Punch, the Mids are to die for. Bass to kill. High's are never strident. I swear my ears hear different (better) now.
System Weaknesses: Working in a really tough room. I really cannot think of a single thing I would run out and change. A Octet of Golden Lion KT 88's likely gonna happen soon. The L1290's bi-amped must be heard and the incredible transparency and imaging of the sat7's with the sub-woofer are equally beguiling. When I want a change tubes wont effect, I change speakers.
Video/HT System: None

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I have managed to turn all my passions into careers. I first thought I was messing up good hobbies... Nope <3
