New home for my system

Mov3d the system into the living room for a christmas party, it works out well.

moved the 302's onto stools and put them into the corners, my what bass they have.

Listening to Bass 305, some melodic bass music, and im really not missing the very bottom of the basslines.

Most of it is still there with the speakers in the room some.

just 320kbps mp3 so not hi rez by any means but gonna put some vinyl Fleetwood mac on next, Rumors, Yum!

Grrrrr, hate being sick!

Head full of wool, but this disc rules.

Can really hear the bass modes in my space with the bassline on Dreams, either thin sounding or not, shuffle shuffle.

Never going back, Yesssss!

Those guitars are soooooo awesome! The texture, i love that song!

Got the speakers right in the corners, i can just see the inside of the sidewalls, and the image stretches across the whole room.

Thankyou Grant Fidelity, ive been waiting to do this!

Was given a Fisher Studio Standard RS-9005 by a family member. I was listening to it thru the headphone output into the input of the i12, HUMMMMM, then plugged turntable into phono input and listened to it alone.

Sounds hard compared to the i12, its interesting to finally have something to compare sound with.

Im really needing an input switcher of some sort, movng my amp every time i want to go from the TT to my cable box or phone is tiresome.

Anyone know where to get a double pole 4 position selector knob? Think ill just build a quick input selector.

I would continue saving for the DAC11, it will add soooooo much goodness to what you have now. You can use the DAC11 to build your system around it.
I have had my DAC 11 for about 2 weeks now and am beyond pleased as to what it has done to my system. Especially to my vinyl source and has really helped my CDP which is vintage and does not have coax or optical out, only RCA. You can read/see my review here.

Also think you will get better imaging/soundstage by putting those B&W on stands...You can search "that" auction site for good used stands or even CL for freebies......You might also consider putting some money into a up grade cartridge for your TT and that might be better investment than looking for a new/used TT.

Glad you are enjoying your "new" music again!

As you can see i got a new rack, a headboard really. Turntable down low in the middle. Been a long time since i was on here. Got a kinda scare today, turned the i12 on and the righ hand 12ax7 kinda flashed, didnt go tho sounds mint!

Holy i just love this amp. Find myself walking from the room and just turning my head and smiling at its silver face and glowing tubes.

Still considering an input switch because i cant afford the dac11. Just a dp6p switch and some rca connectors in a nice case.

A turn on flash for about a second is normal when a signal tube is energized, no need to worry, but might be a good time to think of getting some back-up tubes or doing some tube rolling.

Glad your Shuggie brings a smile to your day.

Cheers,
Ian
