paa's My valve DIY system System
IP Address: Last Update: May 08, 2010 at 05:02:46
Amplifier: Ella, an excellent DIY kit from DIY Hifi Supply. I'm using Gold Lion KT88 tubes
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): None. I control volume in the digital domain
Speakers: Triangle Comete EX. I used Quad ESL 63 for some time but had to reconstruct the stators and the final results are far from satisfactory (two stators still have problems)
CD Player/DAC: None! For some years now. 24/94 music downloads is the way to go
Other Source(s): Squeezebox Touch with Russ Andrews power supply, Musical Fidelity V-DAC with Little Pinky power supply
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Nordost Red Daw speakers and interconnects, Nordost Moonglo 2 between Squeezebox and DAC
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Vincent power cables
Tweaks: The amp has been subject to multiple modifications
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, Bossa Nova
System Goals/Comments: A good balance between transparency and smoothness
System Strengths: I had a lot of fun tuning the amp to the speakers and my own personal tastes
System Weaknesses: I miss the Quad ESL 63 ultimate "voicing" and "un-boxiness"
Video/HT System: Separate
