Description

This is my starter system but still a work in progress. I have spent a lot of time on the room design and build because I knew once it was built I would not be able to upgrade any of the interior of the walls. All power wires run back to the BPT power conditioner on a dedicated 10 gauge 20 amp breaker- the mains, the center, the sub, the projector and the surrounds. All wires are at least one foot apart or if needed cross at a 90 degree angle to prevent any noise. The lights are on a separate breaker.

I will not be upgrading the speakers. I will not be upgrading the Halo processor or the DVD player for the theater side. My goal is to run two mono tubes VTL, VAC or SS Krell or Pass Labs on the mains and a new CD player between the mains and then have the secondary system for movies.

At this point I most likely will upgrade all solid state amps to Pass Labs and the mains to VTL S-400 or 750's, VAC 110 or 220's. Any suggestions here?

All speakers, interconnects, and power wires will remain the same upgraded ones I presently have.

Here are a few more details:

• Dedicated 10 gauge power wire with 20 amp breaker

• All studs in walls have been polyurethane coated to create a musical transducer effect similar to polyurethane-ing a cello, bass or acoustical guitar. (I know a little voodoo, BUT go down to your basement, poly one stud next to another and knock on both once it is dry.) Learned from

• The walls were all insulated for noise and vibration control.

• The sheet rock was laid and each area of the dry wall was “checked” by tightened or loosening the screws before mudding. This was accomplished by knocking on the walls and trying to make each area sound the same by loosening or tighten the screws.

• The front half of the ceiling was slanted down towards the projector screen to reduce standing waves. Two parallel surfaces reflect continuous sound waves = poor sound.

• The paint was picked for its acoustical benefits, meaning gloss paint has the most reflective qualities verses flat having the least

• 80 weight carpet was used to further reduce standing waves-this is regret! I wish I would have put in wood floors and used throw rugs to adjust the reflective-ness of the wood floor. I am considering now putting in a slate or wood floor and tearing out the carpet.

• Leather couches were used to try and reduce the absorption of sound instead of fabric

Next steps in the room:

• VTL S-400 or 750's or VAC Phi 110/220 Tubes for the mains?? Pass-labs for the surrounds?

• Sound treatments throughout the room

• New CD/DVD player- Denon 5910 with mods by PartsConnexion, which replaces the output stage with tubes

• Various musical type decorations

Change the sub to a Velodyne DD-15 or DD-18

    • Martin Logan Prodigy
    I have wanted elctrostats for over 10 years and now I have got them! Power Cables are Belden E83754 StarQuad red with a switchable spiral ground with Watt Gate and Marinco plugs SPECS: descended from Statement E2 Descended from Statement E2, Prodigy establishes new standards in technology, performance, and aesthetics. Advances in our electrostatic transducer, a new multi-transformer design, and isolated high-pass/low-pass crossover result in increased efficiency, power handling, and bandwidth extension. Multi-laminate composite cabinetry integrates a matrix assembly for strength. Aluminum alloy head-piece and side plate, and extruded stator supports increase rigidity of the ESL frame assembly resulting in an utterly non-resonant high performance cabinet-providing luminous detail, and expanded dynamics. Innovative, ForceForward™ (patent pending) bass configuration utilizes dual aluminum and high rigidity fiber cone drivers in isolated chamber configuration. You experience unprecedented room/bass control with outstanding placement flexibility-clean, pure, powerful bass-everywhere. Prodigy sets the standards for living with sound. Available in matte black with a variety of hand-finished hardwood trim options, Prodigy is both single wire and bi-wire stereo capable. EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) High End Loudspeaker of the year, 2000-2001 Frequency Response: 28–22,000 Hz ± 3dB Dispersion Horizontal: 30 degrees Vertical: 4' (122cm) line source Sensitivity: 91 dB/2.83 volts/meter Impedance: 4 ohms, 1.0 at 20kHz Crossover Frequency: 250 Hz Components: Custom wound audio transformers, polypropylene capacitors, air core coils Woofer type: 10” (25.4cm) x 2 (per channel) cast basket, high excursion, high rigidity cone with extended throw driver assembly, non-resonant chamber format. Bass Control Switch: +3dB below 50Hz Power handling: 300 watts per channel Weight: 133 lbs/each (60kg) Dimensions: 67” H x 16.5” W x 28” D (170 x 42 x 71cm) ForceForward: the problem bass reflections... the solution ForceForward As long as recorded music has been enjoyed in the home, loudspeaker designers have faced the challenge of room interactions produced by bass frequencies which can color and alter the character of the music. These colorations are a natural occurrence of sound wave reflection and motion through any listening room. Remember that all speakers radiate bass frequencies in all directions—including behind the speaker. The low frequencies which are reflected from the front wall and back to the listening position, add to or subtract from the original audio material and chaotically interact throughout the listening environment. Typically, this produces a diminished signal—called a null—at about 50Hz and an enhanced signal—a peak—at around 100Hz.
    • Martin Logan Theater
    Very good center-Power Cables are Belden E83754 StarQuad red with a switchable spiral ground with Watt Gate and Marinco plugs SPECS: the reference electrostatic center channel From the beginning, the center channel has been recognized as the most critical element in any home theater and multi-channel music system. It grabs your attention, grounds the cinematic experience, and holds you in the moment. Designed and executed precisely, the center channel bridges the main channels and provides a seamless sound stage that tracks the cinematic environment—to perfection. This is exactly what MartinLogan Theater i was designed and manufactured to do—effortlessly. Theater i builds upon the foundation of the hugely successful Theater center channel loudspeaker by incorporating a myriad of design innovations including a Generation 2 stat panel featuring ClearSpar™ technology, MicroPerf stator, low-voltage DC power, and enhanced cabinet and stator finishes. The Theater i’s new Generation 2 stat panel incorporates a reformulation of our conductive coating and a new plasma deposition process. This refined thin film technology provides improved impedance tolerance and maximum adhesion and abrasion resistance. ClearSpar technology enhances Theater i’s transparent look and increases both efficiency and dynamics. The new MicroPerf design reduces the size of individual holes in the stator, allowing more openings compared to a traditional MartinLogan ESL transducer, maximizing efficiency of the Theater i’s small ESL transducer. Fusing this ultra high-performance Generation 2 CLS™ transducer with dual proprietary 6.5” shielded dynamic bass drivers and an innovative controlled dispersion array has resulted in a design capable of fully resolving any sound from the subtlest dialog to room-shaking effects. Theater i’s innovative controlled dispersion array minimizes destructive high-frequency room interaction. To eliminate the need for a traditional IEC power cord and significantly increase ease of installation, especially for custom applications, the Theater i features a low-voltage DC power supply. To further enhance custom application options, the Theater i ships with a multi-mount stand attached. Whether the Theater i is placed atop a rear projection TV, wall mounted under a plasma screen, or placed on the floor, the unit can be precisely aimed simply by adjusting the proprietary MartinLogan handgrips. Enhanced cabinet and stator finishes, standard on the Theater i, include the attractive and durable new semi-gloss black cabinet finish and shimmering, dark gray Meteor colored stators (the front and back perforated electrostatic panel elements). The Theater i is supplied with single-wire, high-resolution, proprietary toolless binding posts for effortless cable attachment and management. Frequency Response: 70–22,000 Hz ± 3 dB Dispersion: 30 degrees Sensitivity: 90 dB/2.83 volts/meter Impedance: 4 ohms, 3.1 @ 20 Hz Crossover Frequencies: 300, 3000 Hz Bass Drivers: Two 6.5” (16.5 cm) magnetically shielded.

Sony's new Precision Drive™ 3 system simplifies the process by moving the lens-instead of the entire optical block-for faster and more accurate error correction. • Precision Cinema Progressive™ Technology Other DVD players detect image changes at the scan line level-Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive (PCP) system detects them at the pixel level. The picture is more faithful to the source-whether film or video-because separate, optimized algorithms are used to handle the differing pixel behavior. Separate algorithms are also used to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are virtually free from motion artifacts. • MP3 Playback3 Playing MP3 Music on aSony® DVD player is easy.

That would be a good question to post. I've not listened to the big Prodigy before and the adds always showed them with huge SS amps. What are their spec's? This will dictate which tube amps may work best (or not at all). I think your on the right track with the Wolcott but not sure.

Thanks Dave! Do you think that the tube amp verses solid state amp makes a diffence in noise? I just hate hiss!

Beautiful Trackmagic, I use a tubed pre-amp with a Krell amp...no tube noise at all.
