Dom Brown's Main - getting there... System
Last Update: December 08, 2003 at 01:26:50 IP Address:
Amplifier: Naim NAIT 3
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none
Speakers: Rega Ela (Mk 1)
CD Player/DAC: Rega Planet (original, not 2000)
Turntable/Phono Stage: Rega Planar3/P3 hybrid (Planar 3 plinth, P3 motor and PSU, Ortofon 540 MM cartridge, uses Rega Mira's phono stage
Other Source(s): Technics STGT1000 DAB tuner, Pioneer CT447/Technics RS-B85 cassette decks, Sony JB940 MD, Akai CR-81D 8track cartridge recorder
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Naim NACA5 single wired, Chord Cobra on CD, cheapo Maplins on MD/tapedecks, Cambridge Audio interconnects with Maywire DIN->RCA convertors (stupid Naim!)

Tweaks: Russ Andrews Silencer mains spike/line filterer thingy, Russ Andrews YellO Power, Eupen, Black Rhodium 4 gang
Room Size (LxWxH): 20 x 12 x 8
Room Comments/Treatments: New flat is full concrete construction so no boom, but the room is an odd shape so it's a bit of a mess sonically, but useable.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, pop, 80s, cheesy, disco, basically almost anything barring 'audiophile' recordings - a bit of a waste of a reasonable system really
System Goals/Comments: I need to upgrade to a high output MC cartridge (I broke the last one I had hence back to Ortofon 5xx MMs for now) and ultimately I either want a Garrard 401/arm off my deck, or a Rega P9, and am planning to upgrade/replace my CDP with either the current version of the Planet or a Naim CD5i if they ever come out!!!
System Strengths: Speed, musicality (the system doesn't draw too much attention to itself considering how cheap it is compared to some systems out there - except for CD being, well, CD), looks cool in its own way
System Weaknesses: Not enough time to listen to the system!!
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Housemate's 28 inch widescreen (still not big enough) - think it's a Mitsubishi but it's just titled "Black Diamond)
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Yamaha DSP-E800 DD/DTS/Prologic processor
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Rega Kyte rears (no room for desired Mordaunt-Short dipoles in current house), Paradigm CC170 centre, no sub (can't get one in sensible price territory that can keep up with the Elas.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Pioneer 656A multiregion DVD player, Philips Matchline 805 NICAM VHS, Pioneer CLD310 Laserdisc
Other HT Gear: Philips ProntoNeo learning remote
Comments on HT System: OK; it's only AV though so not critical IMHO.
