wood1's main system System
IP Address: Last Update: January 31, 2023 at 15:30:54
Amplifier: Custom built Musical Concepts monoblocs by John Hillig
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Backert Labs Rhumba 1.2 Extreme I still can't
believe what a difference this made. The sweet mids from The Peach remain, the last 5% of the top end that I always felt was rolled off no matter what I did is now present as well as a fuller, more controlled bottom end. It's like I'm hearing my 10t's for the first time.
Speakers: Aerial 10T V1 with Sound Anchor stands
CD Player/DAC: Wadia 20 transport, Wadia 15i dac and Genesis Digital Lense
Other Source(s): Bluesound node 2i connected to the lense via a 1m Virtual Dynamics Revelation Signature 75 ohm cable, only taking the digital signal out of the node
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: High Fidelity Cables CT-1E and CT-1 Ultimate interconnects, Virtual Dynamics Revelation Signature balanced digital cables, Virtual Dynamics Revelation bi-wire speaker cables, all power cords are a heavily modified VH Audio flavor 4 built by me, with Furutech FI-28R's on digital components and the Rhumba and FI-11CU male on amps (hardwired with no IEC).
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Adona Signature 9 shelf rack
Tweaks: Dedicated 20amp circuit, 10awg romex feeding 5 Furutech FT-D20A outlets, WBT binding posts on monoblocs and 10T's. Eden Sound Terracone XL footers on both amps and the Rhumba. SR Orange fuses in both amps and the Rhumba as well as Wadia 15i and 20, . Combo of SR blacks and blues in everything else. 10awg circuit will be undergoing some changes to add 2 more FT-D20a outlets so as to accommodate 4 High Fidelity cables MC.05 Helix Plus Signature power conditioners
Room Size (LxWxH): 22 x 15 x 8
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, Blues, Soul and Jazz
System Goals/Comments: I'm very pleased with where it is and while I'm probably not at the end of the journey I'm close to it although I will be looking hard at the new Aerial 12t's when they finally come out.
System Strengths: IMHO it does everything well, the journey has been very rewarding, not to mention a blast.
System Weaknesses: My room limits me some as far as soundstage but I can't do anything about that. The Wadia 20 and 15i are getting long in tooth but continue to function well and sound GREAT!!!
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: audiophile,audiophile and audiophile
