sk's I'm There System
IP Address: 73.16.13.45 Last Update: April 27, 2019 at 07:12:55
Amplifier: Atma-Sphere amps (M60's and the Novacron LE) and pre-amp Atma-sphere MP-1 or Merrill Christine Pre, Merrill amps & Bricasti M25 amp x 2 to run with Sanders 10e speaker system & Gold Note PA-1175 amps. Love ALL
also use Merrill Veritas mono-blocks

Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): NVO SPA-II/SE 22 tube phono unit has blown away my KONDO M-7, not even close. This also has beaten my KONDO M1000 MKII that retails for over $90,000 !!!! (Not worth the asking price IMHO). Also sold my Kondo KSL-SFz step-up after 15 years for a S.A. Labs SUT (from Russia with love) Unbelievable SUT at a fraction of the Kondo SUT. Alos use Gold Note PH-10 phono
Speakers: Colibri Labs Electrum (makes Acoustic Zen Crescendo's MKII sound broken) (http://www.audiocolibri.com/en/)
As of early 2018 now use Sanders 10e Electrostatic speakers....I'm in love again.
Sources:
CD Player/DAC: Bricasti M1SE
Turntable/Phono Stage: Sold my Simon Yorke Design S10 (just to pricey and a very hard sell given other tables now on the market at a much lower cost and sonically no difference IMO!), S.A. Labs SUT into the NVO SPA-II/SE phono unit with an CAR-50 (Kuzma) cartridge and Kuzma Stabi XL (black) table.

Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: S.I.N Audio and Audiomica (IC's, speaker cables and PC's) ALL Kondo cables are now replaced with S.I.N. Audio or Audiomica which is a more "natural" sounding cable and 1/4 the price.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Mike Fredrickson rack
S.I.N. Line Conditioner
Pranawire Linebacker
Tweaks: 6 Vibraplanes, Shun Mook resonators

TMOTL (too many others to list)
Room Size (LxWxH): 26' x 16' x 12'
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, small ensembles
System Goals/Comments: Not for the performance to be transported into the listening room but for the the listener to be transported into the recording hall.....
System Strengths: Can listen (and want too) for days on end....
System Weaknesses: Took too many years to reach my goal, and way too much $$$$. If I only knew 5 years agao what I know now, would be $200,000 richer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Video/HT System: None
