I can finally post a system pic after completing room renovations and the room isn't overrun yet with records and CDs.  Also I'm in a spot where I don't really want to swap out any of these components (famous last words).

Everything but the ZROCK2 and the cabling was bought used.  I am a musical omnivore (indie rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, afrobeat, a smattering of others) and the goal of the system was to be able to balance musical enjoyment of a couple thousand CD's and several hundred records with maximum fidelity and dynamic impact.

Matt be careful in the Jon Zone lol still waiting to get my 2a3 amp back, repairs are so backed up at Deja Vu. But it's ok the little loaner Sythesis Encore 5881 amp is a nice backup. And I wish I had room for a 2nd system. Cheers!


Now this is a system I've been waiting to see looking very nice Matt. And it looks like the "super Yammy" didn't displace your Pass Dac. I bet it sounds fantastic!
