I'm sure it will change but I enjoy the synergy I have so far.

The journey never seems to end...

Hi Robm,

How are the Von Schweikert speakers doing in your room? I was reading another thread where you mention a 13X12 room. I have moved into a house and have a similar room. Do you use any room treatments, etc?

Thanks,

milpai

Thanks Glenhifi! I definitely enjoy the escape it brings. The Vons just do so much right and almost nothing wrong. He's my favorite speaker designer.

Nice to get away and escape to the music. Very nice system, I too love the Vons, they are the very musical speakers be it with SS or tubes. I do favor tubes. Enjoy the music.

I can't say enough about the Melos. I absolutely love it for the price. It's a nice preamp to boot.

Using the Lavry DA10 as a digital preamp.

If I ever find an HP-2, I intend to get a Melos

Oh that's right.

I actually would prefer the Aleph from a pure sound quality standpoint anyway. The F1 is the best for dynamics and controll though.

Sorry for the mistake.

What preamp are you using?

robm321

222222&text=jp
No F1, I'm using a Pass Labs Aleph 30 balanced.

Hey JPak! You would know considering you have the F1 (the best amp I've heard for the K-1000s) driving them ;)

I got a set of AKG K141 monitor headphones - they are quite nice but I still prefer my Sennheiser HD25-13's...

ha ha Dewald. I was going to say done for now becuase I am happy with the setup, but I knew as soon as I did I'd upgrade something.

The journey never ends. The one day you might think you have a good system and the next you get a better (or more satisfying) piece of equipment.

I got through turntables like nothing... I am like it!
