Living room: NAD C521BEE feeding into an NAD C352, output to a pair of Klipsch RF-82s.

Bedroom: E-MU 1212m/SCD-CE595 feeding into a Denon PMA-2000IVR, output to a pair of Klipsch RB-25s

The living room rig was moved from my bedroom because of a lack of space so I have no future plans for it as I only get to listen to it a couple of times a month. For my bedroom rig, I plan on replacing my source with either a Denon 2900 or a 3910 with eventual plans for the SACDmods package, and either a pair of Von Schweikert VR-1s or Paradigm Studio Reference 40 v.3s. I was really interested in ML 'stats late last year, the Claritys in particular, but after assessing my room I really don't have enough space to make the purchase worthwhile.

Mine are some DIY ones also.

Dallas II rear loaded horn, using fostex fe206e. They're big, ugly, and weigh about 100lb.

A photo of one getting a test play before being glued shut, with my parents' dalis about two foot behind it for a good size comparison


Powered by firstwatt f2 clone


They still need to be finished and painted, but they're too heavy to easily move so i tend to just work on them in my listening room (naughty naught i know!), but I dont want to have wood and paint dust getting all over my new amp. And its a pain in the ass to move the amp while its still in several pieces like that. and i'm too broke to finish the amp

so it'll be a while.

my folks use Original A8s (CDP), onkyo amp and dali speakers. I use modded lite dacah, firstwatt, dallas

edit: inside photo for the curious. not mine

Arcam CD33T -> Plinius 8100 -> Meadowlark Audio Shearwater Hot Rods, strung together with Analysis Plus cabling.

I haven't really changed a thing since 2003 (and that was to switch in the Arcam in place of a tubed CD player that I burned out - long story), although I did manage to listen to a pair of Vienna Acoustics' Strauss about two months ago. Beautifully crafted, but way too much speaker for my small living room...

It's really a shame that Meadowlark went out of business too...
