Tony Doman's Sunroom: Just a sittin' and a rockin': System
Last Update: November 28, 2001 at 00:20:09 IP Address:
Amplifier: Quad 303
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Quad 33
Speakers: Technics SB20 miniatures (approx 20 years old)
CD Player/DAC: Marantz CD42
Other Source(s): Technics AM/FM analog receiver; Aiwa ADF260 tape deck
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Speaker: white twin-core stuff that was in the toolbox, thin enough and long enough.
I/C: VD Hul 102 from CD. CT125-based from pre to power amp. Giveaways for the rest.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Lash-up chipboard stand/unit in a fetching shade of apricot white, handpainted. Speakers on tiny chipboard shelves high up in corners.
Tweaks: I'm toying with the idea of screwing castors onto the bottom of the rack so I can move it more easily.
Room Size (LxWxH): 5m x 5m x 2m
Room Comments/Treatments: Fully glassed two walls, with patio type sliding action. Roof clear polycarb in IBR pattern with UV protection; retractible canvas awning. Does nothing for the sound, but great to laze in on winter afternoons.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): 567 Cape Talk radio mostly, though I also use it for playing through the collection of cassette tapes to keep them healthy. CDs for background noise.
System Goals/Comments: She shall have music wherever she goes.
System Strengths: Unobtrusive. Cheap. Sounds good for what it is.
System Weaknesses: She shall have music wherever she goes, but prefers not to have the speakers at seat level where they'd really sing.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Writer: Associate Editor, CAR, Cape Town, South Africa. Guitarist (classically schooled, now playing mainly jazz, latin, acoustic styles). Competitive cyclist. Dabble in DIY electronics.
