|Amplifier:||Decware 84C Signature Monoblocks.|

|CD Player/DAC:||WILL NOT CROSS THE THRESHOLD OF MY HOME|
|Turntable/Phono Stage:||Was, until recently, heavily modified 1985 Linn Sondek LP12 with Origin Live DC motor and outboard power supply|
and Cetech carbon fibre subchassis. Black Linn Ittok LV II, Koetsu Signature Black, Linn Karma, and Denon 103D cartridges.

|Speaker Cables/Interconnects:||47 Labs OTA cable used for all interconnects and power cords.|
|Room Size (LxWxH):||25 x 14 x 8|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||My tastes are very catholic. Apart from Pope John's Greatest Hits I love: Soul; 70's, 80's and 90's rock; funk from every decade; ditto blues and rock and roll; ska, roots reggae and rock steady. About the only music I don't like is regimental marching music, oh and heavy gangster rap. But aren't the two almost identical ?|
|System Goals/Comments:||I like what I have a lot. SET's and super-efficient speakers are certainly the way to go. My next move is a speaker with forward firing and rear firing (at an angle), Lowther-based speakers.|
|System Strengths:||Astonishing speed. I have never heard a faster system. Incredible imaging for an omnidirectional speaker. Instruments just float|
|System Weaknesses:||Occasional abrasive highs and a little lightness in the bass that were recently cured respectively by the Decware Gizmo and most dramatically by the Goldring.|
|Video/HT System: Integrated|
|Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub):||NONE|
|Other HT Gear:||NONE|
|Comments on HT System:||NONE|
