Quantum's Quantum System
Last Update: February 15, 2004 at 17:31:41 IP Address:
Amplifier: YBA Integre Passion with phono stage. Outstanding.
Also: Cary 2A3 integrated 15W push-pull.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None.
Speakers: Spendor SP-100, with custom jumpers by Silver Audio; Sunfire Jr. Subwoofer (only when mounted on bearings).
CD Player/DAC: Birdland Audio Odeon Lite (very pleased); Sony DVP-NS500V DVD/SACD.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Technics SL-5 linear tracking. Good enough to show the organic quality of vinyl.
Other Source(s): Rotel RT-1080 tuner. Magnavox VCR. Panasonic TV and cable. Headroom Home headphone amp and Sennheiser HD-600 headphones.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Magnan Reference speaker cable (single wire); Luminous Audio Synchrestra Reference IC; Silver Audio Hyacinth IC; Bodgan Audio IC.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): PS Audio 300 Power Plant for DAC, transport and TV; PS Audio Ultimate Outlet; Kharma, LAT and Audio Magic power cords. Audio Magic Mini-Stealth PLC dedicated to amp.
Tweaks: Symposium Rollerbocks (DVD/transport); Daruma isolation bearings (subwoofer and DAC).
Room Comments/Treatments: Housed in the family room. Suspended wood floor with area rug.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All - Adams to Zappa, Ambient to Zydeco, Film Soundtracks, environmental, movies, TV sound, screaming V-10's on the F1 starting grid!
System Goals/Comments: Eventually will move to dedicated media room. Would like to try Valhalla cabling and higher-end digital sources/DACs (Medea, EMM etc.) May move to a music server format. May upgrade subwoofer.
System Strengths: Natural, transparent, detailed, listenable on a wide variety of sound sources and types. Cary adds superb tonal quality and detail.
System Weaknesses: Speakers too close to rear walls for optimal imaging. No high-end vinyl or hi-rez (except for 24/96 DAD) sources.
Video/HT System: Integrated
Comments on HT System: TV sound is routinely routed through the main system. Have dabbled with surround sound.
