OT-Music listening area
On an off-topic note, this past year I built a dedicated classical music system and started (continued) on the process of collecting and learning about music. I had good mentors in Eric Sperry, a master trumpet player and musician, and David Drews, another audiophile and former trumpet player in the Boston Symphony. I replaced my old Sony system with new audiophile components. An AMC 100wpc amp and pre-amp, Sony SACD player, and most important, Rocket 450 tower speakers from AV123. I now have near symphonic sound and excellent imaging. I never knew this world existed before being exposed to it. Eric and Dave's systems made my old stereo sound like a squeaky tone-deaf singer.
I had fun creating my own cables and tweaking everything until I was satisfied with it.

Beautiful speakers! What better way to drown out the misery of a winter freeze than some heavy metal music.ReplyDelete
Great system! All of your Tupac CD's must really bump! Did you hook up a bass cannon as well?ReplyDelete

P-r-r-r-i-i-i-t-t-e-e-e-e speakers, Erik! I like your "homey" set-up -- warm and friendly.ReplyDelete
