Well I need to get pics up but this weekend was a trip, I had a good friend from Agon here from out of town and after getting the Sota shelf up and getting the wires routed and seperated better, we tried some amp rolling, he had an old Carver TFM 35 that we put in as the panel amp, too bright and forward mid range was tiresome we swapped cables around to find the best synergy but still wasnt blown away at all, so I thought to try the Aragon amp for the ribbon mids and tweets and use the Carver for the woofers.......I dont get it and would never have guessed it but this is an excellent combo! No forward barking mid range, no harsh tweeter and the bass is actually better...(I dont get it and never will but we found a great combo) My discovery cables serve the amps well and my MIT works well off the DAC, after swapping cables around this worked the best.....many thanks to Bob for comming all the way down and all his help....alot of fun!
System edited: Well finally got the wires isolated from power cords, installed a wall mount rack for the SOTA and am trying a rather vintage amp for the panels...the verdict is not in yet. I do like the Valvo Amprex tube in my S.F. pre, last issue is a hum for the table wich I fear just may mean a arm re-wire may be in my future. A luxman T117 tuner has been added aswell and I hope to add new pics very shortly.
