New house, (largely) new system:
PS Audio P5
Self-built music server, basically a somewhat modernized Caps v3 Zuma running Win 10 and Jriver.
DS DAC with Bridge II. At the moment I have it set up to run via USB with an AQ Jitterbug and Uptone Regen - Regen and server are powered by an HDPlex power supply. May go back to the Bridge though, will compare them to each other extensively in the coming weeks.
Hegel H160 amp. I do plan to integrate the new BHK pre into the system but i hafta figure out some issues re how to connect it up to our whole-house system to keep the spousal unit happy. In the meantime, the Hegel is very good indeed.
Vandersteen Treo Carbons + Rythmik servo sub. I do not have the sub integration/sound quite right yet… some room issues. May add a 2nd sub, we’ll see. or I may just say to hell with it and listen to music.
Pathos Aurium headphone amp, at the moment running it with Sennheiser HD650’s w/cardas cable and Denon AH-D7000’s. Sonarworks custom EQ for the Senns. (well worth it IMHO!)
NAD M4 tuner b/c my Magnum Dynalab is overseas.
Acoustech phono pre
The TT in the pic is a Micro Seiki BL51 that I bought when I was just out of college, must have been 1981 or 2. Rega arm. Also have a VPI that’s not in the photo. 98% of my listening is digital, but I may still upgrade the TT in this setup. Problem is I have a big sentimental attachment to the Micro.
Interconnects are Audioquest Colorado (XLR) and Shunyata Black Mamba or older PS Audio (for the tuner.) Speaker cable is AQ Rocket 88, double run. USB at the moment is Kimber and Paul Pang. Power cords are mainly older PS Audio plus one or two Shunyatas. (Paul - I am still waiting for newer, more flexible pc’s from you - I am in rebellion against cable stiffness and taxes. :))
Also have a modified KLH-Burwen TNE-7000A noise reducer for analog, just in case of noisy LP’s. You can see a big old Carver power amp in the rack - that’s left over from my wife’s old system, before she met me. Just sitting there for lack of a better place to store it.
