@lalitk  I hear you, absolutely. It will most likely happen, just a matter of priority between upgrading the floor system and investing in customer inventory. Kicking off my business as a dealer has been a fun challenge! Should you want to trade anything in towards an N30SA or MC20 if you don’t have them already, let me know. I’ll do everything I can to work with you!

@blisshifi, I hear you on internal clocks within T+A and N30 but my experience with external clocks has been nothing but stellar. A external clock in a ultra high resolution system like yours can be a bit of game changer :-)

@lalitk Thank you! I was eyeing rhe MC20 at AXPONA and it certainly piqued my interest. It might be something I add, but the internal clocks in both the N30SA and T+A reference DAC are already very stellar. The itch is there, so who knows?

Thank you, @islandmandan. You are always welcome to make an appointment if you ever come to town to visit! Would love to have you!

Beautiful system indeed! I love the attention to detail and your choice of electronics. Would you be adding Aurender’s MC20 clock to N30SA?

Blisshifi, it's a wonderful system you have assembled, I'm sure I would be very envious if I were fortunate enough to hear it, but considering the distance, and my age, it's not likely to happen.

Best regards,
Dan

Not that many other people with T+A gear - nice setup!

Thank you, @jond! Yes what you refer to are Synergistic Research HFT Speaker kits. They act as tiny little transducers that help battle standing waves and phasing issues to help the speakers’ resolution and enable them to more easily disappear into the room. I use other HFTs around the room and the effect is notable.

Jaw dropping system! And so well color coordinated and those Vicoustic diffusers are so cool looking. One question there seem to be bolts protruding from the front and sides of your speakers are they for tuning purposes?

Absolutely stunning system with an equally beautiful thoughtfully structured matching listening environment. Had a dealership in town that carried T+A and loved what I heard but I was already deep into tube equipment by then. Sure you have exquisite days/evenings of musical bliss with family and friends. System too nice not to share. Maybe you could even turn Larry....always one. Enjoy the music.

I see that you have Isoacoustics Gaia on the TT feet. I have not seen that. Did you try other devices and if so what did you try and what was the difference.  I have found Isoacoustics to be just right under solid state components and in place of feet on my rack.

Makes sense, thanks for the reply!

Thanks very much for the link to the two-sided tape you used.  Much appreciated!

@jjbechto I went for the SVS SB-4000 over the SB16 Ultra for a few reasons:

1. Bigger woofers that reach lower frequencies are often not “faster”. I wanted the quality of the carbon-like driver in a sealed enclosure that could perform as fast as possible with the music. I’m predominantly using the sub for soundstage improvement and clarity across the frequency range vs adding thump.

2. My room is medium sized, and two of the SB-4000 are sufficient. I also didn’t want the footprint of a larger sub taking up more space. 

3. I didn’t go for another sub brand because of a cost for value ratio. I respect REL, but the subs are incredibly expensive if you want them to go lower than 20hz at -3db. Also, SVS’ DSP capabilities and ability to adjust everything (crossover, phase degrees, parametric EQ, etc) through their mobile app from my listening chair is priceless as proper sub integration is such a pain in the butt.

Holy Cow. Beautiful system and room that obviously took a lot of work and time. Awesome job.

Great system!  Looks Beautiful.
How are your Vicoustic panels mounted in the window?
I have a very similar situation in my room, but I don’t know how to mount the Vicoustic panels.

Very nice system and room.  Well done.  👍🏻

Incredible system. Love the T+A stuff and the overall aesthetic. Curious: obviously the $ difference is negligible for you - why did you go with the SB-4000 over the SB16-Ultra (or a sub beyond that)?

Beautiful system so much to learn from here.  Looks like you may live in an area that might be quiet.  Hopefully you don't have annoying landscaper leaf blowing noise all day long.

That is a gorgeous room and beautiful system.  Everything looks amazing and so well balanced.  I don’t know what is the matter with people these days.  “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all” still applies in 2022, but unfortunately, the more I read on A’gon, the less it seems to apply. At any rate, enjoy that system in that beautiful room :)

I hope that was intended as a joke from Larry.  Otherwise, stunningly insensitive and condescending.  That system is spectacular, and the sound room is equally so.  Enjoy it in good health.
