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.

Thanks Jon, no it didn't but the Superyammie has uses elsewhere in the house... building an extra system is my cheat code for staying in the Jon Zone!


Love the Stabi, built like a tank, and a lower noise floor than my Rega P5, really pushes surface noise a little further into the background. It doesn't "blow away" the P5 but I'm glad I made the upgrade. I also use Vibrapods under it.
