SJT's Grad Student System System
Last Update: March 10, 2002 at 00:30:03 IP Address:
Amplifier: Sim Audio Moon I-5 integrated amp (70W into 8ohms, 110W into 4Ohms)
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none
Speakers: Main: Avance Epsilon 910 A/V + ACI Quake subwoofer

Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Zu Cable Oxyfuel interconnects

DIY power cords (JR style)

Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): No rack yet, everything is in a television stand. Entire system runs off a Monster HTS2000 power filter/surge protector (except the Sim).
Tweaks: Vibrapods under the Quake- tightened things up a bit and helped with room resonance.
Room Size (LxWxH): 14' x 13' x 10'
Room Comments/Treatments: Can't do anything about the size of the room, I get what they give me. The layout of the room does not allow for much treatment, but just recently added Sonex corner treatments.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Female Vocals (80%) favorites include: Natalie Merchant, Tracy Chapman, Joan Osbourne, Sarah McLachlan,...other music includes New Age, some rock, a little jazz (collection currently experiencing a huge growth spurt)...yeah that's about it
System Goals/Comments: I'll need a better room to improve on the sound. Maybe get a rack when I get the money and the space.
System Strengths: I enjoy the sound. After listening to higher-end gear, I know there is better out there, but satisfied now (I really don't have the money to upgrade even if I wasn't satisfied:0))
System Weaknesses: The squarish shape of the room. Lacks true dynamics and deep bass. Little room treatment.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Magnavox 25" television- about 10yrs. old, but not a bad picture (just lacks the newer video inputs)
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: See above, everything is run off the Sim integrated.
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): See above.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Toshiba DVD player (SD1600)- not bad for the little use it gets
Other HT Gear: Popcorn and beer on occasion;0)
Comments on HT System: It lets me watch the news and the occasional video, what else could I want? Well maybe a HDTV...one day...
