~Lurcalot~'s The 5 x $500 = $2500 system System
Last Update: February 12, 2001 at 02:03:46 IP Address:

Monster 3000
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Monster HTS1000
Tweaks: none yet...
Room Size (LxWxH): 19.5 x 14.5 x 7.5
Room Comments/Treatments: The room is somewhat close to the "golden rule" and room opens to my delightful kitchenette thingee to one side so used cheap RPG foam panels folded into the one corner as a corner trap and more at 45 degree rear reflection to try to dead end the backside. It did help but still experimenting.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock and Jazz - Richard Thompson, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earl, Bella Fleck, Don Peer, Gatemouth Brown.
System Goals/Comments: Enjoying surfing for value equipment and still learning what I want. OK. I already know I like them Dunlavy SC V's
System Strengths: paid for
System Weaknesses: The the amp batteries and of course want the Maggie 1.6's. The amp will only play about 4 CD's well before they have to be recharged for 6 hours. The batteries are four 12 volts wired for 24 volt output and I am thinking of wiring up to two car batteries to see how long they will play.
Video/HT System: None
Sources (DVD/VCR): parallel DVD audio out from 414. The DAC hooked to the RCA digital out for music and the analog out to the pre for HT.
Other HT Gear: Toshiba CW34x92. CRT 16x9 HD ready TV
Comments on HT System: cost as much as my 2 channel music system and is in the shop and it usually only displays Speedvision while the music is playing.
