IP Address: Last Update: December 26, 2011 at 18:55:07
Amplifier: A four-channel setup.
Four Ampex 620 speaker/amp combo. Two front,
two rear. Two front channels were coupled with two Vandersteen 2Wq subwoofers crossover @ 80 Hz.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): See above.
Speakers: No center speaker, as it is not necessary in a home environment where two main fronts are only 7 ft apart. Center channel almost always very difficult to blend in. It also compromises channel separation. Phantom center gives a well spreaded homogeneous L/R sound stage.
