Amplifier: Denon, Stratos with mods by Kraus!
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Rogue Metis is currently stock with no mods
Speakers: Music system is Maggie 1.6/QR's. They're new. I'm probably adding twin ML Depths after the Mye stands come. Theater sound is via SVS subs and speakers.
CD Player/DAC: I have many sources: For music: Underwood modified Jolida 100A, Oppo SACD, Sony Blu-Ray and HD-DVD via Toshiba.
Turntable/Phono Stage: None. By old Thorens is boxed and sleeping.
Other Source(s): Working to set up a Laptop source with DAC.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Audioquest....nothing too exotic.
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): No power conditioner, but a single circuit in the house handles A/V gear.
Tweaks: Lots, but too much to type hear. Room dimensions below are aprox...
Room Size (LxWxH): 16 x 25 x 7.6
Room Comments/Treatments: I have foam behind the 120 inch screen. I hear some odd reflections in the rear, but only in multi channel. Other than that, the room is well damped.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, Jazz, Classical....no hard jazz.
System Goals/Comments: Mono blocks soon, maybe I'll try the Peter Gunn mods.
System Strengths: Clarity and soundstage. The room is really close to perfect for the Maggies. Tweaking position changes things, but it all sounds great.
System Weaknesses: Below 40hz or so the Maggies drop off a cliff. Integration of the "right" sub is a current project.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Mitsubishi HD projector to a Cinema White 120 screen. It's BIG!
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Denon, Rotel
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): SVS and SVS subs
Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, HD Cable
Other HT Gear: Oppo Upscaling DVD player...outperforms the Sony and Toshiba.
Comments on HT System: Big enough to allow for real "screenings" and the sound is better of course. Presentation often looks better than theatrical. Fantastic if you've got the room for it.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Own and sail a 35 foot sailing boat on the Long Island Sound, Astronomy, Photographer, fast cars, film & screenwriting, raising my beautiful 3 year old boy
