Revolink, I really like your vibration isolation right thur. Are those Shakti Cards? For what it's worth, a GS-1 would look nice in there evil_smiley.gif

Using HF-2's to compare Audio-GD Sparrow "B" and older Benchmark DAC1.

 

Soon I'll have Sparrow "A" to compare also.

 

Sony X with the TF-10.

 

I like the Rubbermaid "stand."  Wished it matched, though...  *sarcastic grin* 

 

Oh, and D12 next to printer...

@RexEterna:

 

Hey, my Father has one of these Sansui Receivers lying around...what can you tell me about it?  

 

I remember it being 50 Watts per channel and the speakers having magnets that made them ridiculously heavy.

 

(I admit to using the "Loudness" button- first green text button, have you got it depressed?)

 

I'll have to search for info on it now!

Yes, those are the awesome Shakti combination turntable leveling and isolation  magic cards. wink_face.gif
 

 

Nice turntable, Skylab! I almost picked one of those up a couple of weeks ago (assuming it's a DP-59L)

well i can't say since you never mentioned the model of it(mine is 5000x which is 60wpc@8ohms continuous, 160w max@8ohms) but i can tell you sansui brand is a really nice sounding units for pure,accurate sound reproduction and has massive amounts of muscle behind the power amps used in most sansui gear. lot of military soldiers would buy up sansui gear like crazy overseas back then. was very popular brand in 70's,80's,90's and even now. take it out and give it a listen and see how you like it(if it doesn't require a good clean and well taken care of) and no i don't use the loudness button at all. mine has enough muscle to power anything i throw at it(even headphones). loudness button was really meant to amplify the low and high frequencies at low listening levels  to compensate for lack of bass and highs like some wind instruments,hihats,ect.

also amps back then was built with real watts. amps was measured across the full frequency spectrum(20hz-20khz) and can double it's power output lower the impedance goes making'em perfect for speakers like magnepan speakers or other planer magnetic gear. that's why people will tell you when you give them a nice vintage unit a listen will be impressed by how much power they can deliver and how it sounds. give it a listen. you'll be surprised. i love all my vintage gear i been collecting.

Now I like that simple set up Paconavarro. Macbook>E7>DT990 I bet it sounds pretty good aswell.

I'm using my new DAC (HRT Music Streamer II) through my dad's SS speaker/headphone amp (NAD C 350) -> HD  650's. This sure beats just using the EF2A. Now I want a big ass SS amp but It wouldn't be very practical. . .

Yes Bazzman, great sound and all fits in my backpack, even the dt990s with the case.

Thank you Rex!

 

I'll take a pic of the Sansui unit (might grab it) when I see family over the holidays.  That's exactly what my Father did (purchase the Sansui) while on leave from his Vietnam Tour duty.  I remember showing off how powerful it was to friends and trying to destroy the neighborhood with Def Leppard's Pyromania album...
