TeddiJackEddie 's Second out of 5 ... five years later System
IP Address: Last Update: March 12, 2018 at 10:12:35
Amplifier: Adcom 5300 with the world famous power supply mod. Love that old amp.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): DIY 5-tube (all NOS tubes)
Speakers: Magnaplanar MGII-B
Crossovers put on the exterior in a wood box; high end (expensive caps and coils) with some German ribbon tweeters.
CD Player/DAC: Marantz DV-6200
Used mainly as a CD player. Sounds better than the Oppo in my other system.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Technics 1200 with Rega arm. Rewired arm - wire goes from the cartridge all the way over and is soldered to the preamp board.
Other Source(s): Internet streaming and downloading. Old laptop digital out through Pangea patchcord to HRT Pro.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Tara (rust colored) can't remember the number. Interconnect cables are a hodge podge of DIY.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): DIY
Tweaks: Many
Room Size (LxWxH): 20 x 18 x 10
Room Comments/Treatments: Room is just right for the Maggies.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): See my other system. Believe it or not, my tastes are the same on both of them.
System Goals/Comments: For the Maggies to transport me to a place where endorphins flow like wine. Is that trite enough? Kind of true though.
System Strengths: Good for large scale classical as well as rock and roll.
System Weaknesses: Of course, with Maggies, it could use a little more bass.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: 65" Sony something
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Cable box and Marantz DVD player
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): See above
Sources (DVD/VCR): Marantz DVD and $50 Blu-ray player
Other HT Gear: None
Sometimes, when I remember it, I hook up to the stereo when we watch a movie.
Comments on HT System: Hey, it's a G-d damn TV. When I close my eyes, the sound stage on the news is so fantastic, I could touch the weather girl on her butt, but that wouldn't be PC.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Bike riding (on and off-road)
Target shooting (yes, I wear ear protection, but probably too little, too late)
Working out (weight lifting, general gym stuff)
Drinking beer
