Wowie Zowie, beautiful system. Forgive my ignorance, what speakers are those?
this is our current setup, a mostly all tube system.
All the tube gear is from our range of custom tube audio gear we hand built to order.
Top shelve, left to right:
Model Aretha tone control preamp, model Elvis KT88 60W/CH stereo power amp, U-Turn turntable, Revox PR99 MKII fully restored and customized;
Middle shelve left to right:
Revox FM tuner, model Janis phono preamp, model Billie headphone amp;
Bottom shelve left to right:
Model Hexagon source selector, Sony 5 disc CD player;
Speakers are Vandersteen 2Ci's
This really is an excellent sounding system, the Vandersteens do really like being driven by the Elvis tube power amp.
Alas, the wine bottles on the right are not tube...., but taste good!!
Altec studio monitors. 604 Duplex in 612 "utility" cabinets. Variations of were used in a lot of recording studios during the period of time most of the music I listen to was recorded.
nice! Do you build custom SET amps?
Nice. Try to pull the Vandersteens at least 18" from the wall. As you might know, they are very picky about setup...but when you get them right they are fantastic.
Vandy's like power too.
they are off the back wall about 19", does not like it on the photo
I do, model Ray 6L6G SET, details here, http://www.erhard-audio.com/Ray.html. The 6L6G is strapped in triode mode.
Yes, at first I thought that maybe 60W may not be sufficient, but then these speakers are quite sensitive, and model Elvis is MORE than enough to run the 2Ci's!
I only saw the white one! Both beautiful.
How are you liking those speakers? Pretty impressive specs on those.
Measured from the rear of the speaker? I'm thinking they would sound better forward of the cabinet to reduce diffraction.
Well, of course, I LOVE THEM!
This is a design that I have been working on and refining for over two years. Finally brought them to market this summer. Positive Feedback will be posting a detailed review by our very own John Hoffman in a few weeks. Stay tuned!!!
Now we're talkin!
I did not realize the Cionnsailes were your designs.
I think you should get more input. I happily volunteer!
(I spent a day or so in Kinsale and like the town.)
Good luck with them.
Thanks! So far everyone (but one person) who has heard them likes them. I have done three demos for local retail outlets. All three started with "well, we aren't really taking on any new products now" and ended with "how long can we keep a pair?"
The impressions so far are that they are very neutral and revealing of upstream equipment. Frequency response is "flat" which was part of the design intent. And bass response is surprising for a 6" driver. Taking orders if you are interested! The set in the pic are Lucky #13, available with or without matching stands. PM me for pricing.

Congrats Baco, that's great!
that will not really work with the current setup and room layout. I tweaked the adjustable crossovers on them, was able to make them sing that little bit better again! Today I maxed out on the amp, 60W, into the Vandee's, WOW!!...was pretty effen awesome!!!!
Well your cats seem to like your setup a lot
