Amplifier: Krell Ksa-250 on the mid/tweeter towers.
two Bryston 4b's bridged to mono running the bass towers. Krell is class A 250wpc, the Bryston's are over 500 watts bridged.
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Audio Research LS 15
Speakers: Infinity RS-1B, with active crossover, but not using the Infinity crossover. I have gone to a DBX instead. Gives greater flexibility in level matching, and won't blow up my amps. Recently finished replacing all the original Infinity Emims with ribbons made by Graz. Wonderfully transparent!!!!!
CD Player/DAC: Sim Moon Equinox
Turntable/Phono Stage: VPI hw 19mk IV with Sama. I removed the springs, and am using the VPI supports to run it unsprung. TTweights 4lb platter, on top of the MkIV platter, plus TTweights centerweight and peripheral ring.

Tweaks: amp stands,Target rack for the pre-amp, cd player and crossover. TT sits on a heavy cedar butcher block on a Target stand.

Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical-orchestral mostly.
Jazz,blues-big band, vocals, small groups
Rock-very wide-ranging styles I play LP's most of the time, and play CD's only when I want to read at the same time, of if there is something I want to hear that I own only on CD.
System Goals/Comments: to be able to reproduce the sound and impact of a large orchestra or jazz band at satisfactory volume levels, and to also bring life to small chamber groups, jazz quintets, etc.
System Strengths: Creates wide, deep soundstage with impact. Sparkling delicate highs, and deep lows.
Accurate timbral accuracy from instrument to instrument.
System Weaknesses: Crossover points between mid and bass towers can be fussy,especially with the sprung wooden floor.
Video/HT System: Separate
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: trombone player, blues harmonica player, retired music teacher, baseball umpire and volleyball referee. Happily married and retired in Kirkland, Washington
