|Last Update: June 21, 2003 at 21:24:34||IP Address: 220.127.116.11|
|Amplifier:||ASL Wave 8 Monoblocks|
|Preamplifier (or None if Integrated):||Yamaha C-2A|
|Speakers:||Axiom Audio M3Ti's|
|CD Player/DAC:||DVD player bastardized for CD player usage: JVC XV-SA70.|
DAC: ART DI/O, basically stock for now...for now.
|Turntable/Phono Stage:||Kenwood KD-2055 Belt Drive, corian base with Grado Green, few little tweaks.|
The Yamaha is my phono stage (please refer to system name for explaination.)
|Other Source(s):||Tuner: Kenwood KT-5500 with Magnum Dynalab Silver Ribbon antenna|
Sound Blaster Live! for Lo-fi MP3 playback when I'm feeling very lazy, or not listening critically.
And a cheap VCR for TV sound.
|Speaker Cables/Interconnects:||Speaker Cable: Roll your own CAT5 Plenum, 10 pair conductors, braided.|
Interconnects: For the components not worthy of good cabling, whatever I found in the box. For the better components, a few AR 'pro' series cables, and an IXOS verdi that I quite like.
|Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.):||Whatever it lands on....|
|Tweaks:||Most equipment rests on a bubble wrap supported shelf, I need to fix that... :)|
|Room Comments/Treatments:||In transition, will be a hole in the wall (9'x11'x10') soon enough|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Pretty varied...Classic Rock, little modern rock, good bit of Classical, especially Bach and Mozart. A few Jazz musicians, and the occasional light rock penchant.|
|System Goals/Comments:||I've hobbled it together in, well 18 months now really, everything but the TV and VCR is new. What can I say, it's an addiction. Main goal is great sound on a budget, musicality being foremost, life-like presentation that is.|
|System Strengths:||Quite happy with Analog playback, I love the Axioms, and the Wave's. Digital just got a lot better with the DI/O|
|System Weaknesses:||No low frequencies, and I've pretty much given up on incorporating surround sound until I have more space.|
|Video/HT System: Integrated|
|TV/Projector:||Crappy newer Philips/Crap-in-a-Box 19" Color ;) TV|
|Sources (DVD/VCR):||JVC XV-SA70|
|Comments on HT System:||Meh. Don't have enough money to spend to put together anything listenable now.|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||GA Tech...that\'s my school, keeps me occupied.|
