Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All genres depends on my mood love old stuff like Muddy Waters, but will play pop rock right after enjoying Kind of Cool, then John Hiatt or get this Joe Cocker, I adore the Bach solo suits by Starker I have on vinyl
System Goals/Comments: HAVING MY EQUIPMENT RETURNED TO ITS RIGHTFUL OWNER I got the tubes which I gather she thought messy TGA.
I started to concentrate on 6SN7s because they were easily acquired and I think they sound better than any tube I have used. They do not deteriorate quickly with use but I have a lot to ofthem. I am happy to have a large seletion but If I had saved all that money I could own a SLP-05 From Cary to use them in. the AE-3 is great but rolling them doesn't have the impact I have noticed in other circuits. Are they really are worth?
System Strengths: Which one? the 40watt integrated it is the classic long tail and it is very tolerant of tube rolling so its fun. Finally getting the right tubes for the SP6B and cables for the system I forgot to mention Au24 power cables on dedicated circuits and SuburuGuru from agon top model power cables the prelude and Fuge and the Q bar propower socket strip
System Weaknesses: Right now I have found Nirvana with the Cyber 800 monblocs and AE-03. Minor tube roll in the amps with input and heaters being "NOS' I think the input CV2943's by Mullard are really great and surprisingly the EH 6CA7s not EL-34s are heaven sent. The Gec Reissue Gold Lions KT-88s from Jim McShane are "scary" good.
The real Weaknesses are having too much audio refuse along the path to Nirvana that I can't sell. For reasons unknown
Video/HT System: None
TV/Projector: Japanese brand made in China as is the usual case. 52 inch screen. Hi Def.
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: POS Onkyo probably made in China
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Onkyo threw them in should throw them out. except the sub.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Older Sony like 3 or 4 no DMI. Being a materalistic pig means I have lots of them.
Comments on HT System: Icannot unbderstand why the cable ass toungers puta wierd jack for out put
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Physician: currently disab Academic,Service and Administrive, previously of Temple U Sch.Of Med
