Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Dared sl 2000A. tube type. Running Mullard NOS for 12at7's and GZ 30 rect tube with great results. Very competent and sweet little pre. Now using for Rect RCA blackplate and two 12AT shuguang. Outstanding combo!

Tweaks: Maplewood blocks here and there. Homemade
Room Size (LxWxH): 35' x 35' x 11-16 cath.
Room Comments/Treatments: The listening room only has one full corner. Other than that, openings to other areas of the house. Bass has been very clean and tight with little help. Very lucky.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical and Jazz of all types. Some new age. Love a lot of the old rockers like Crosby, Still, Nash----Grateful Dead---Dire
Straits---- etc. Good vocals (love Shirley Horn) John Pizzarelli, Kenny Rankin
System Goals/Comments: Something new once in a while. Just did the tube pre., first venture into tubes and love what it did. Probably no tube amp as Maggies love those big watts and I love what they do with them. I listen at generally low to mid 80's with peaks to 95 db. Even at those levels peaks will sometimes pop the meters over 200w. Just added White Zombie 99k.5 silver core wire on all interconnects. About 20 hours on them. Getting sweeter with each listening session.
System Strengths: I am pretty happy with it right now. Doing more listening than anylizing which is a good sign LOL!
System Weaknesses: Probably would benefit from some Hi End speaker cables but cant bring myself to feel the improvement would justify the cost.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Samsung Digital 60' DLP projection system w/ Hi Def.
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Sony NS999ES modded progressive to Yamaha HTR 5890 AV Receiver 140wpc This has a failed part so not using. Using a $200 Samsung cdp. Sounds excellent,, decodes everything includig DVD A. Real sleeper
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Fronts: Epos M-15.2... Center, self built, two 3" mids robbed from a Bose speaker for great mids....1" Titanium tweeter.
Sources (DVD/VCR): DVD and Many wonderful older CD's. Lots of Telarc, REf Recordings, Chesky, Nimbus, EMI etc etc
Comments on HT System: Most 5.1 dvd's are crap in my opinion. Pretty much listening now just to fronts with prrescence speakers added
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Many years retired. Now ill (Nov '07) with cancer. Hanging in there. Got a lot of music to listen to still.
