NB's Totally 70's Home Office System
IP Address: Last Update: January 25, 2020 at 10:04:21
Amplifier: Marantz 2238B Receiver
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none
Speakers: Smaller Advents (dated 1975)
CD Player/DAC: Sony XE500
Turntable/Phono Stage: Dual 506, AT 440MLa cartridge
Other Source(s): NAD 6155 Cassette Deck
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: generic
Room Size (LxWxH): 29 x 13 x 8
Room Comments/Treatments: Lots of carpet and books. I have my Advents on a pair of stands I bought at a yard sale.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, Jazz, Classical, International
System Goals/Comments: Two great recent scores--I just replaced my Marantz 2218 receiver with a 2238B I got at a tag sale--sounds even more tasty. I picked up the Advents for 8 bucks at the thrift. I'm in 70's heaven.
System Strengths: Replaced my KLH 32s with the Smaller Advents. They bring out the clarity and midrange of the Marantz and extend the bass a lot more. Total cost for the system: $98.
System Weaknesses: I have the speakers in the middle of the room so they can face either end. Not ideal but you can't have everything.
Video/HT System: None
