Dave G.'s OK for now System
Last Update: May 24, 2001 at 22:10:18 IP Address:
Amplifier: Rotel RB-990BX
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Mac C-712

CD Player/DAC: Adcom GCD-700
Turntable/Phono Stage: Rega Planar 3 w/ Elys

Tweaks: I have the Mirages Bi-Wired to the Rotel
Room Size (LxWxH): 25' x 20' x 12'
Room Comments/Treatments: The Mirages do OK in this room, but the BiPolar design doesn't really work in harmony with the room configuration in terms of bookshelves behind the speakers. It's a good room though, and if I had the $ it could be great.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock/Genesis/Yes/Kansas/Marillion/Flower Kings/Rush/Who/UFO/Deep Purple/Heep/Marley/XTC/Thin Lizzy.
System Goals/Comments: Want toob preamp and maybe toob power amp and new speakers
System Strengths: Full response from the Mirages but they don't really match the rest of the gear. Too bright on cd material.
System Weaknesses: LP playback is crummy, wish it was better. Prefer cd now. But some cd's are too bright thus fatigue.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Sony
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: none
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): standard "stereo" config.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony VCR, Pioneer Laserdisc, Sony DVD
Other HT Gear: none
Comments on HT System: I'm not big on HT atthis time, but love concert videos.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Love music and beer and mountain biking. Love remastered cd's.
