triode3's Main System
IP Address: 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".
CD Player/DAC: None
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.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
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.
