Amplifier: Ayre V-5Xe. I love this amplifier. It is so detailed. Such wonderful resolution. Great soundstage. And so, so musical. That is the real thing. (Just put it in to replace my old pair of Adcom GFA565 Monoblocks. I wish some of you guys had told me how shitty those things were, and I would have done this sooner.)
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Conrad-Johnson Premier 17LS. I replaced the stock Sovtek 6922's with Mullard CV2493's. Sweet, sweet, sweet.
Speakers: Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus 803 D. These are the most recent addition. They sounded wonderful right out of the box, which surprised me - no break in period? But, they are a replacement for a pair of Nautilus 803's, and a fantastic improvement over those. Highs are crystal clear and highly detailed, bass is authoritative in a way that the 803's couldn't quite match.
CD Player/DAC: Sony SCD-1 SACD PLayer. When I bought this, I said to myself that I would never even want another CD player. So far, after 2 years, this is still true. I've never heard a better CD player or SACD player.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Bang & Olufsen TX-2 with B & O MMC1 cartridge. I am using my old Adcom GFP565 preamplifier as a phono stage. It may be obvious from this set up that I do not play a lot of vinyl
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Kimber Kable Monocle XL - I had Bifocal XL in here, but replaced that with two runs of Monocle XL and I like that much better. C (The Bifocal XL has 36 discrete conductors; two runs of Monocle XL have 48 discrete conductors.) Interconnects are Linn Silver Interconnect.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Ayre L-5Xe Power Filter. Really quieted thngs down for me. I think I probably created another couple of decibles of dynamic range, here, because, this has gotten rid of a lot of low level noise and hum.
Room Size (LxWxH): 24 x 16 x 8
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): There's really very little that I don't listen to. But, in heavy rotation (apologies to MF) are Patricia Barber's Modern Cool, Diana Krall's The Look of Love, Miles Davis' In a Silent Way, John Coltrane's Lush Life, The Rolling Stones' Aftermath, Steely Dan's Gaucho, Angela Hewitt's Chopin Nocturnes and Bach Keyboard Music, and Walter Susskind's Ma Vlast and The Planets.
System Goals/Comments: Smiling faces and dancing feet. Got both.
System Strengths: No wife. That means that I get to buy things that I don't need and can't afford.
System Weaknesses: Room treatment. I am probably going to have to buy a new house to do anything in this area.
Video/HT System: None
TV/Projector: Yuck. I hate television.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Making fun of DUI lawyers.
