Tyler's My first attempt (and building) System
Last Update: March 17, 2003 at 23:02:37 IP Address:
Amplifier: Denon 2801 receiver (90w x 5)
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none
Speakers: Vienna Acoustics Haydn (rosewood)
CD Player/DAC: Pioneer DV-C503 (5 disc changer)
Turntable/Phono Stage: none
Other Source(s): none

Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Atacama Nexus 27" gloss black stands

Tweaks: none
Room Size (LxWxH): 8 x 9 x 9
Room Comments/Treatments: system is cramped into my small (!) college apartment bedroom, hopefully will have more breathing room for the speakers soon!
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Just about everything, but mainly Progressive Electronic, Hip-Hop, New Rock, Rock, Punk, Jazz, Classical, and others...
System Goals/Comments: I am very pleased with my speakers and stands but would like to have a little more space for them as they sound best about 2 feet into the room from the back wall. I'd like to audition a few amps in the short run (next few months) and maybe subwoofers in the longer run (next year). A better tuner may be in store also.
System Strengths: The Haydns - a tad laid back (my preference), surprising bass for such a small monitor
System Weaknesses: Can't quite achieve the slam i'd like to, perhaps due to the amp. Also, system is cramped right now and not sounding as good as it can
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: JVC 27"
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Denon 2801 (same as above)
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): JBL ND-310
Sources (DVD/VCR): Pioneer DV-C503 (same as above)
Other HT Gear: some old Panasonic vcr
Comments on HT System: Rarely watch movies, but the JBLs just about blew my doors off when watching the matrix!

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Mechanical Engineering senior, enjoy martial arts (Karate, Tae Kwon Do) and flying stunt kites (notice I didn't say doing tricks!)
