fileunderwater 's Mixed bag System
Last Update: October 22, 2002 at 04:40:15 IP Address:
Amplifier: Nad 350
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated):
Speakers: Dont ask. I honestly dont know. Wait...They are made in Sweden. They are an old pair which I stole from my parents and they definately need to be upgraded.
CD Player/DAC: Technics SL-PD847. A 5-disc changer that is starting to get a bit old. I have thought about a new one, but I dont know what to buy. I really like the 5-disc changer, but at the same time a standard single CD player is probably gives better sound.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Thorens 160 mkII with SME 3009 SII improved. The pickup is a Goldring 920 IGC. I'm very satisfied with this setup, but I need to make some adjustments.
The phono stage is a crappy thing called Ready sound CVS 2000. A new and better one would be preferable.
Other Source(s): Philips N2508 cassette deck. A real beauty.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Interconnects are Tara Labs Prism 800i and something called Tech-link+
Tweaks: I have some in mind, but haven't gotten to it yet. For one, I will change the bottom plate on the TT to a thicker one.
Room Comments/Treatments: My "listening room" which happen to be my whole appartment is filled with assorted junk to dampen the room. Honestly that is really an after-constructed explanation I give people who ask why I have such a mess.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): I listen to a little bit of everything, but mostly rock/pop. Some artists/bands which are cornerstones in my record collection is the VU, R.E.M., Radiohead, Thelonious Monk, Spiritualized, Pink Floyd, the Clash, Bob Dylan, Nicolai Dunger, Elvis Costello, Primal Scream, Mercury rev ++ much more
System Goals/Comments: I would like to change alot (which you probably understand after reading my description) but the monetary funds aren't present right now. The first things I would change are the speakers (been looking at B&W 602) and the phono stage.
System Strengths: Functional playback of assorted music.
System Weaknesses: Many, to many
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Biology, being outdoors, photography,
I\'m a biology/math student.
