Amplifier: AudioAnalogue Puccini SE
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None
Speakers: PSB Stratus Golds, switchable between music and theatre systems.
CD Player/DAC: Marantz DV-7001 (SACD/CD/DVD)

Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Disconnected the old Tara Lab Time and Space/TFA Return speaker cables and am trying the Home Depot 14. IC's are Audioquest Diamondback (from the phono preamp to the amp) and Ruby (others).
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Monster Power HTS-2000, Target racks
Room Size (LxWxH): 24 x 14 x Varies
Room Comments/Treatments: Surprisingly good as-is for a bonus room over a garage with knee-wall, sloping ceiling, etc.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, Opera, Jazz, Folk, Broadway
System Goals/Comments: Adding/upgrading whenever economics will allow
System Strengths: Works well in the room. Love the sound of the Puccini SE, especially after improving on its phono stage by adding the Graham Slee unit.
System Weaknesses: Concrete floor would help, but it's a bonus room over the garage. At least it's a dedicated room.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Hitachi 51"
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Yamaha HTR-5860
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): PSB Stratus Gold for the front two, switchable between music and HT systems. Center uses speakers in Hitachi 51'. Surrounds are PSB Ambient II, and there are two PSB Alpha Mites bringing up the rear. DCM sub.
Sources (DVD/VCR): 2 DirecTV HD DVRs
Other HT Gear: Extra hard drives on DVRs for increased capacity
Comments on HT System: Finally worked out a compromise that gives me surround capability but doesn't sacrifice 2-channel music quality.
