Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): 150 Watt mains conditioning unit.
Room Size (LxWxH): 12ft x 12ft x 8ft
Room Comments/Treatments: Room is small, used as an office/study and living room. The eatons are on top of my LP Boxesat about 6ft high, too high really but a compromise so I can fit 70% of my record collection in the room. The ESL's live on the floor in front of the LP boxes.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): 60's 70's rock/prog/phsyc/soul,country & Miles Davis, some but not much modern rock/trip-hop/alt country
System Goals/Comments: I would prefer a bigger & better listening room with a higher ceiling so the music can breathe or a dedicated listening room with a shelf for a few records/cd's books etc. . Present room is cramped and full of books/records/cd's to the ceiling also a computer workstation
System Strengths: Fantastic sound for the money I paid for it. Losing the Quad 22 was a sure eye opener. The system is silent & without the hisses and pops from the 22. Everything opened up, with the NVA.

I was always (and still am) a vinyl fan but the addition of the Beresford 24 bit DAC has massively improved the soundstage of the CD player. So much so that a month later I bought one for system 2 and at 100 I would recommend this to anyone.
System Weaknesses: None, the weakness is in the room! I've never heard better!
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Listening to or playing music. What else is there???
