Ozzie's Downstairs He Man Rig System
IP Address: 47.186.85.102 Last Update: August 13, 2020 at 12:01:32
Amplifier: Recapped Threshold S300 for the woofers.
A pair of recapped and modified Threshold SA/3s for the mids and tweeters.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Pass Labs XP-12. This beauty is followed by a Marchand three way 24 Db/oct active crossover (oh no, chips). A Marchand XM47 2nd order passive crossover between the soft dome and the player. A Legacy Steradian smooths out the low freqs nicely.
Speakers: Active Tri amped Legacy Whispers and Legacy Xtreme Bass sub.
Sources:
CD Player/DAC: Marantz Ruby. Boy did they bring it on this black box.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Too much effort for me.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: 20 gage Duelund for the ICs, and 12 gage Duelund for the speaker cables. Yummy stuff.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Power Conditioner? Why? If your AC is wired right and the power supplies of your equipment is properly designed, AC cables and conditioners would be moot. Anyone ever heard of a pi network?
Tweaks: Duelund wires all around.
Room Size (LxWxH): 20 x 16 x 11
Room Comments/Treatments: The use of controlled directivity loudspeakers and electronic LF room correction greatly minimizes room effects.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, some rock. I am ok with chicks singing.
System Goals/Comments: I am darn nearly there. My model is a jazz
club here in Dallas with very little amplification.
System Strengths: I have attempted to bring musicians that have deceased long ago back to life. Fortunately for me they do not seem to have access to my liquor stash.
System Weaknesses: It is nowhere near live music. So what, we are out the door now to go and hear some.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: 82" Samsung Q60 QLED TV. Fiber out to a Schiit MODI for audio D/A conversions.
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: 100 watt per channel Pioneer integrated surround amp driving the center channel and rear / sides only. The mains (Whispers) are driven as indicated above.
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Legacy Cinema HD center channel with Legacy Studio HDs for the surround / sides. Yeah, this rig does both 2 ch music and HT well, very well.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony DVD / Blue Ray player.
Comments on HT System: It's an all in one music and home theatre rig.

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Spending time and my hard earned money with my honey, my handsome dog Gus, travel, food, good liquor, over priced wine, live music, Netflix movies, sleep.
