IP Address: Last Update: July 06, 2009 at 11:58:13
Amplifier: Manley Neo-classic SE/PP 300B monoblock amps. (With EML 300B)

Tweaks: Custom 25kg glass stand, vibrapod under cdp, Cardas caps, Densen 'demagic' CD. Hifi-tuning fuses.
Room Size (LxWxH): 10.66 x 9.35 x 8.56
Room Comments/Treatments: Small but very good sounding room. Acoustically treated with Akustar foams from RT60. (Early reflections behind speakers and side walls. Long wall speakers placement.)
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock/Pop (Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles...etc.) a little classical too (Bach...)
System Goals/Comments: My goal is the most realistic and natural sound reproduction given my room size limitation. To get everything and more from the master tape.
System Strengths: I got a teleport machine, i use little shiny dics and BAM! Musicians appear in front of me. An all (single ended) 300B signal path by Manley Labs is something to be heard to be believed. Ultimate transparency, killer dynamics, life-like textures, tonal accuracy to die for...etc. AWESOME!!
System Weaknesses: The size of my room. I can't use "real" full range speakers but i still got very good deep bass. Harbeth M30s, like their predecessor Rogers LS5/9 can compete with much bigger speakers. I could have more depth with a bigger room too. System not really full range but one of the shortest and cleanest signal path...
Video/HT System: None
