David M. Green's David & Melanie's System
Last Update: October 29, 2002 at 21:46:22 IP Address:
Amplifier: Melos Plus 200 Custom Rebuilt (& it's been stable for almost two years now if you can believe it!) 225 wpc
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Herron Line Stage
Speakers: Magnepan SMGc's
CD Player/DAC: Melos, Pioneer, Krell
Turntable/Phono Stage: Linn Table/Graham Arm/Helikon Cartridge - Herron Phono Stage
Other Source(s): Roksan turntable for mono LP playback
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: NBS, Transparent, Nordost, Wireworld probably some others I can't think of.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Tiffany power conditioner, Townshend seismic sink, Sunfire subwoofer & lots of small stuff - Standesign five shelf unit (the Penta?) VPI HW17F cleaner. Use ONLY Disc Doctor materials for cleaning LPs, CDs and DVDs.
Tweaks: Vintage tubes all around & lots of little things here and there that are always changing.
Room Size (LxWxH): 12 x 18 x 8
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, Classical
System Goals/Comments: Better pair of Magnepans is about all I wish to make the system better.
System Strengths: Wonderful midrange and very deep bass.
System Weaknesses: Inarticulate soundstage, not enough top end. I used to have Maggie 20's, so I really have been trying to come up with something close to THAT sound without having to spend a fortune again. I know, I know, find some used 3.6's...
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Mitsubishi 36 inch recalibrated in 2001 to eliminate overscan and improve color and gray scales. It looks like a Pro set, people cannot believe it is not six years old when they come over, and I mean serious home theater people, not the in-laws.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Denon DVD, Pioneer Pro Laserdisc.
Comments on HT System: Watch film with 2 channel only. I prefer it to any type of surround, and I'm still saddened that DVD's 2 channel sound after several years now is not as dynamic or exciting as laserdisc's was.

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Film, photography, for other hobbies and raising my child is, for now, my occupation.
