PJD 's In current rotation System
IP Address: Last Update: May 26, 2020 at 10:45:26
Amplifier: Mc275, original model, rescued from an estate clearance (it was free). Recapped etc. with much appreciated and generous guidance from a fellow inmate. (Obtained a Fisher 500c the same way,free; it works but needs refurbishing.)
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): DIY Hi-FI Supply Basie with 12BH7s; McIntosh MX-113 in storage.
Speakers: Monitor Audio Silver 6 speakers. Replaced PSB Image 2Bs, which I was using due to small room. Vandersteen 2cesigs and Klipsch Cornwalls are sitting on the sidelines.
CD Player/DAC: CI Audio VDA 2 with CI Audio VAC power supply. Fed by RPI 3B+ with Allo DigiOne SPDIF board and Volumio, which replaced a Mac Mini running Audirvana and ITunes into a Peachtree Audio X1 USB to SPDIF Converter. Also use Pioneer DV 563A universal player
Turntable/Phono Stage: Technics SL-1200 with Hagerman Bugle III as phono preamp; Dual 1229 (needs work, not in use at the moment.)
Other Source(s): Onix 88 CD player; Marantz cc-67 carousel CD player; Ack Dac (1.2?).
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: VH Audio Pulsar II digital cable from Peachtree Audio X1 to DAC. Morrow Audio AudioQuest USB from Mac Mini to Peachtree Audio X1 USB to SPDIF converter; Morrow MA3 interconnects from DAC to pre; Mogami interconnects from pre to amp. AudioQuest Type 4 speaker cables.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Nothing of note.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, blues, Americana, classical, jazz fusion.
System Goals/Comments: None at the moment other than breaking in the speakers.
System Strengths: Sound is ok considering room and speaker limitations, but fun and convenience factors are high. And the price was right.
System Weaknesses: Many, but especially the room -- a small living room. The other option is a small basement.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Hiking, reading (history/nonfiction mostly)
