OakIris's Humble but always evolving System
IP Address: Last Update: January 29, 2014 at 12:55:34
Amplifier: Art Audio Carissa Signature integrated tube amp for my main 2-channel system.

Computer room system: Sound Quest SQ84 tube amp.

Also have a SinglePower MPX3 tube headphone amp for use with my headphones.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None
Speakers: Cain & Cain Abby speakers; 95dB; natural alder wood - beautiful looks and sonics, IMHO.

Computer room system: Cain & Cain Noogis - a miniture form of the Abbeys, also in natural alder wood. Very nice indeed.
CD Player/DAC: Main 2-channel system: Audio aero Prima MKII- it has tubes!
Computer room system: Consonance Droplet 5.0 CDP. Very impressive sonically and visually, at least to me.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Teres Audio Model 160 turntable with a Wright Sound Company tube phono stage and step-up. Upgraded my turntable with a lead-filled birch platter (formerly had a lead-filled acrylic platter) and a maple record clamp. The cartridge will be a Denon 103 and the tone arm is a Moerch DP-6.

Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: 2-Channel system: Cardas UE15 speaker wires and Golden Cross ICs. HT System: Silver Audiopath speaker wires for fronts and center. Blue Jean cables for rears (this is a run of about 40 ft.)
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Furutech ETP80 power conditioner. Also use a Power Power Bar 1100 - basically a glorified surge protector.

My rack is a beautiful custom made maple, bubinga and granite rack from HHG Stands: http://www.hhgstands.com/index.html
Tweaks: Audiopoints under equipment stand.
Room Comments/Treatments: Not a dedicated listening room so it is mostly make do....; the room is small with lots of windows so not ideal.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): World music, mostly Celtic, Afro-pop, Latin; jazz, blues, classical, classic rock
System Goals/Comments: My goal is to enjoy my music. I think I am done for now - very happy - until the next bout with upgraditis.
System Strengths: I love the synergy of my systems - and they look very nice, IMO, too.
System Weaknesses: Still in sonic bliss; haven't had the system together long enough to start criticizing it. :-)
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Panasonic TH50PZ800U plasma TV
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Denon AVR-3808CI surround sound receiver
Rotel RMB-1075 Power Amplifier
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): My fronts and center are B & W CM-7 speakers with Wenge veneer; the rears are FJ Zwerg monitors with a cherrywood finish. My sub is an Onix Rocket UFW-10.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Denon DVD-3910 - for DVDs, DVD-As and SACDs. Very nice picture and great sound quality.
Comments on HT System: I don't have a dedicated HT room so my system is simple, still have no "room treatments" but I enjoy watching movies & TV with this set up.
