|IP Address: 18.104.22.168||Last Update: January 03, 2021 at 08:46:19|
|Amplifier:||Switching between BGW 250D, Crown and my custom ARC ST-70-C3 (need new power tranny, the small stack Dynaco runs too hot). |
Here are some pics of the ARC: http://dimlight.org/number9/ARC/arc.html
|Preamplifier (or None if Integrated):||My own build of three preamps in one:|
PAS Labs B1 Buffer
TubeCad Cathode Follower Buffer
BoozeHound Labs buffer
BoozeHound Labs Phono preamp.
All in a ARC SP6 chassis, you can switch between them on the fly.
|Speakers:||Custom bookshelves from Madisound, Snell Type E/III in the main room, Infinity QE with Emit tweeter. Sometimes I swap in the Dynaco A25 with rebuilt crossovers. Subwoofer is a JBL 2245h 18".|
|Turntable/Phono Stage:||Technics SL-1200MkII, black. Denon 103 cart. KAB mods.|
|Other Source(s):||Computer to Proceed: FLAC through a RaspberryPi running RuneAudio controlled by smartphones.|
NAD 4020A tuner, this was replaced by a Pioneer not so great tuner, but it does pickup stations without hiss that the NAD hisses on.
|Speaker Cables/Interconnects:||Interconnects are homemade Canare cable with Neutrik connectors. Speaker cables are Canare star quad speaker cable. Used Kimber 4TC before, but were too short for this room.|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Jazz, Ambient, Reggae, some rock/fusion. |
Coltrane, Miles, Ahmad Jamal, Duke, etc.
Marley, Peter Tosh, Steel Pulse, Sanchez, etc.
Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, English Beat, Surf Coasters, Man or Astro-Mann, Slacktone, Los StraightJackets.
|System Goals/Comments:||Turntable is a DJ deck, need to replace with a better deck.|
|System Strengths:||Easy to listen to. Sometimes is images great, sometimes not. The speakers were really cheap, I need to upgrade.|
