Schu's Primary System System
IP Address: Last Update: October 16, 2007 at 06:41:49
Amplifier: Bryston B100 SST Integrated Amplifier which replaced an old Goldmund SRI
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None
Speakers: DIY Using SEAS metal cones and a SEAS soft dome tweeter. Actually beats my old Revel F30s in terms of inner detail and imaging. It cannot match the Revel bass or dynamics however.
CD Player/DAC: Pacific Valve modified DAC AM
Panasonic DV S97 as transport
Turntable/Phono Stage: Sorry to say that I have none anymore. I gave the B&O to someone who really appreciated it however. It has a good home.
Other Source(s): Adcom tuner
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Kimber 4TC speaker cable.
BlueJeans Cable LC1 interconnects for both digital and analog.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): PS-Audio hospital grade wall sockets. Volex and Audioquest power cords and Furman PST8-D power strip. Amp is plugged directly into the wall.
Tweaks: Sorbothane footings, maple shelves, shelf dampening.
Room Size (LxWxH): 26 x 16 x 17 (cathedral)
Room Comments/Treatments: System was recently moved due to a 'decorator' visiting. Listening is now done in the near field. Custom absorption panels a-la John Risch were created but with changes to the WAF. Using plants to diffuse some window reflections.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, Classical, Pop, R&B, Classic Rock, most anything but try to avoid rap or country when necessary.
System Goals/Comments: I am very happy with this setup.
Midrange smoothness and accuracy, soundstage and imaging, smooth clean detailed highs with no sense of sibilance, decent clean bass which only calls attention to itself if the music calls attention to it.
Looking for acceptable WAF.
Simple to use.
System Strengths: Imaging, sense of being there. Inner detail without being in your face. Set up to play all types of music.
System Weaknesses: Slight accomodations for WAF in terms of speaker positioning but a good compromise. Lacks in ultimate SPL.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Plasma screen. HT system is shared with main audio system.
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Something awful.
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): B&W sealed 10' sub.
DIY speakers.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Panasonic DVD S25 as transport.
Other HT Gear: Motorolla high def DVR via Verizon FIOS
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Cycling, Home Remodeling, Speaker Design, Writing Embedded Software.
