zacster's Main System
IP Address: 24.38.204.140 Last Update: August 19, 2018 at 13:24:40
Amplifier: Dynaco ST-70 modded to 6B4G DHT, an SMSL SA-60 in my office
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Aikido DIY 6GM8 low-v with phono stage. I pulled the phono stage and replaced it with Schitt.
Speakers: DIY Scan-Speak, some other single driver types.
Sources:
CD Player/DAC: Oppo 93, iFi Nano iDSD, Audioquest Dragonfly Black, Hifiberry Dac Pro
Turntable/Phono Stage: Rega Planar 3, Schitt Mani, Ortofon Quintet Blue cartridge, all kinds of tweaks on the Rega
Other Source(s): Tidal, Audirvana, Raspberry Pi/Volumio
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Canare 4S11
Tweaks: Everything is tweaked, but the biggest mod is my ST-70 has almost nothing left from the original.
Room Size (LxWxH): 17 x 17 x 8
Room Comments/Treatments: No carpeting, lots of windows. Very bright.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Any
System Goals/Comments: Keep upgrading. There's always something better.
System Strengths: Nicely detailed, great imaging and soundstage.
System Weaknesses: Flabby bass, due to ST-70 limitations. This is no longer true, I've improved every aspect of the system since I wrote that. Bass is very fast and tight now. Speakers themselves go very deep ~28hz.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Panasonic 50" plasma, don't recall the model
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Outlaw 1050, doesn't work very well anymore, channels drop.
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): DIY Audax Center, old Boston Acoustic surrounds, SVS 20-39CS sub w/parts express amp. Haven't used the sub in about 5 years although it is still there. Kinda hard to hide it.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Oppo 93
Other HT Gear: lots of small office/dorm room systems for my kids
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Cycling, I ride a Kuota Kredo, a lightweight speedster.
