Components Toggle details

    • Volent VL-2
    Ribbon Tweeter and Graphite/Titanium woofer
    • REL Acoustics B2 Brittania
    Running 2 in Stereo
    • Aesthetix Saturn Calypso Sig
    I didn't realize what the rest of the components in this system could do until switching to the Calypso.
    • Aesthetix Rhea Eclipse
    What a fantastic piece that was selected to match the Calypso...just makes vinyl so textured and interesting.

    2016 - Very musical and a great color palette 
    • Aesthetix Atlas Eclipse
    2017 - Recently upgraded.  Very detailed and musical
    • Walker Audio Procession Phono Amp
    So different from the Rhea Eclipse.  I can't believe I own both and each is so good, but different than the other.  Infinite loading is a revelation.  The jury is still out on which I prefer.  Maybe I'll keep both?
    • Dynavector DRT-XV1s
    Still my standard
    • Micro Seiki RXV-1500
    Modified with brass footers and Starsound record weight...better than the vacuum hold down
    • Microseiki 505 Mk I
    So far a real find. Soon to have a second one for a Benz H2 cartridge
    • Auralic Aries
    Controlled with Roon and leashed to DAC via Audioquest Diamond USB.  Sounds best when wired and using Audioquest Vodka to do that.
    • PS Audio DirectStream DAC
    Their latest software has always been suprior, so generally the latest is installed
    • Musical Fidelity A5
    Today this acts as transport only into my DAC - Does anyone listen to CD anymore?
    • Sennheiser HD650
    Headphones w/Stephan Equinox Cable
    • Singlepower PPX3
    Headphone amp
    • Quadrant Systems Speaker and Interconnects
    Small manufacturer whos wires have blown away the competition at the price point...very pleased!
    • Synergistic Research Outlets
    Dedicated 20A lines to each amp, then a run for analoge and another for digital
    • Shunyata Research Denali 2000T
    For Atlas Amp and Rel Subs (run from a PS Audio Power Strip)
    • Shunyata Research Denali 6000T
    Behind the wall of my components
    • Small Green Computer SonicTransport i5
    I'll use this post to also list the rest of my random digital chain - Regen, Jitterbugs and maybe a power supply soon.  Tidal streaming and Netgear NAS for music.

What stands are you using? I discovered the Usher's need substantial stands to really sing.
