The chain looks like this: PC with FLAC (located in the bedroom) >> Harmony Design DA9 as DAC >> Rega Cursa3 as pre-amp >> Rega Maia3 as power-amp >> and finally speakers: Klipsch RF82

Another picture thread. I'm up for it.

 

EDIT: The SA8004 (for sale, buy it) is essentially being used as a USB to Coax converter for the speakers.

 

iMac > SA8004 > XDA-1 (Used as a DAC and Preamp atm) > UPA-1 Monos > MMGs

iMac > SA8004 > LF > LCD 2.2

MorbidToaster, are those electrostatic speakers? And what brand are they?

post #5 of 133


They're Planar speakers (Magnepan MMG).

 

By the end of the year I'm hoping to demo a pair of Martin Logan ESL (Electrostats) and the Magnepan 1.7 (Bigger Planar) and pick one of those up if budget permits.

I always wanted to hear electrostatics. Never got the chance though.

Anyone have any tips on how convince their spouse to allow for maggies in their home?  I have my eye on 20.7s

My girlfriend (going on 5 years now) actually loves my MMGs. It seems Maggies in general have a high WAF because they don't really look like speakers. The 20.7s would be a different ball game, but I think the same idea might apply.

 

If you've got the space for them, of course. I'm surprised you don't have a 'listening room' if you're considering 20.7s. ;)

How do you like the MMG's?  Trying to find replacements for my pop's old MG-1's, love their sound but hey take way too much floorspace.

Really enjoying them now that I got the image centered. Took me awhile as I always had it to the right but they sound great now they're in the proper places.

They eat up all the power I give 'em and do need t .be played a bit loud to really rock though. I think a sub to fill out the sound will make lower level listening better though.

This setup isn't as cool as the others on this thread but it still sounds damn GOOD.
