Jan's Main System
Last Update: November 04, 1999 at 09:49:57 IP Address:
Amplifier: Kenwood L-05 monoblocks, slightly modified. Very, very good, but can be a tad too bright at times.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Sonic Frontiers SFL-1, the old model w/o remote. IMHO one of the best reasonably priced preamps on the market.
Speakers: Hales Concept Five. A bitch to get to second floor (225lbs./each) but the sound is worth every drop of sweat
CD Player/DAC: Rega Planet
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Speakers: Nordost Super Flatline

Interconnects: CD-Pre; Nordost Black Knight
Pre-Amp; Tara Labs Prism 33

The system is about to get rewired. Like the Cardas line (which btw. is the internal wiring of Hales).

Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Heavy duty industrial powercord and extension. Soon will include conditioner.
Room Size (LxWxH): 14 x 10 x 10
Room Comments/Treatments: I know... The room is waaaay too small.. No other choice right now...
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, Blues, Rock....
System Goals/Comments: Life-like presentation, not stadium loud mind you.
System Strengths: Pinpoint image, expansive soundstage. Can give a glimps of Audio Heaven
System Weaknesses: Bass a tad flat at low volumes, and presentation a bit too forward. Blaming the amp and wires right now...
Video/HT System: None
