IP Address: Last Update: June 14, 2012 at 08:53:07
Amplifier: deHavilland 50A Signature Amplifiers. These are a redue of the classic Fischer 50A's built in the 50's. Interstage transformer produces 50 watts in Triode
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): deHavilland Mercury preamp single ended
Speakers: Wilson Benesch new Geometry Series Vectors. Simply breath taking. Cabinets are Carbon Fiber like wings of a stealth bomber. No resonance and back waves disappear totally
CD Player/DAC: Bricasti M1 DAC. 8K and just plug it in to your old CD Player. Huge sound stage and natural tonal quality. Very close to really good vinyl rigs.
Turntable/Phono Stage: Feikert Turntable and TriPlaner Arm, with the Transfiguration Phoenix Cartridge. Not sure what took me so long to discover the Transfiguration. Sounds a lot like music
Other Source(s): The Andros PS 1 Phono Stage from Zesto Audio. All tube fully adjustable. Crazy good.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: We are wired with Kubala Sosna. Emotion and Elation. This is not a fix for a tipped up or tipped down system but if you like your system sound this will make it sound better. Save you money as well.
Room Size (LxWxH): 34' x 16' x 10'
Room Comments/Treatments: No added treatments, just sofa, the floor is carpet.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): I am all over the map. Lots of vocals, Stevie Ray, Patricia Barber, Holly Cole, I am an old hippie so lots of old vinyl. Eat A Peach etc.
System Goals/Comments: The goal for me was to avoid any mechanical artifacts with sound so natural that I could just forget I was listening to a system. Mission accomplished.
System Strengths: Huge sound stage, high resolution, perfect timber, pitch, voices and instruments sound very real and not over the top, very very satisfying
System Weaknesses: Not a system designed to impress people with sound affects, jet fly overs etc.
Video/HT System: None

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I ski about 40 days a year and golf during the summer. Colorado has the best of both worlds.
