Description

This system sounds amazing in this room - 20ft. ceilings with tons of space/volume. It pretty much does it all... Most importantly, it sounds real and yields goosebumps!

Beautiful system, balanced system, but if I were you I would be itching to move up the chain of shindo preamps. Perhaps to a VR.

Very handsome room with nicely complimenting equipment cabinet and Altecs. The size of your listening space should really lets the Altecs breath allowing the sound to develop. Shindo seems popular w/ Altecs. There must be real synergy there.
I too use Altecs w/ tubes though a step down (AES Superamp MkII > Model 15's) in a small room. Still impressive but they act like near field monitors so I am missing that huge soundstage you have. I love your system.

Hi Markpug,
Your room and system look beautiful, the music reproduction must be simply wonderful! I love 300b amps and one day hope to hear the Shindo`s 300b amp interpretation.

SB Touch with TTouch power supply. I'm currently using Soundcheck's SB Touch firmware mods with much success. It makes for a very nice transport.

Markpug, great system. What are you using to feed the Teddydac?

Magnificent system and room. A large room that suits the system has benefits that cannot be denied. Very well done. Enjoy.

Regards,
Dan

System edited: Teddy Pardo's TeddyDac and TTouch power supply was the best addition to this system in years... I wish Teddy Pardo's products had been around in years past.

This is an absolutely beautiful system, congrats. For your digital I would recommend going to a Linn DS. this is the route I have taken I finally am satisfied. Happy listening.

System edited: New DAC added... Not much press out on the Audial Model S; however it's a true diamond in the ruff. It had no problems dethroning the Altmann when it came down to musicality.

Maybe a TT someday, but I seriously doubt it. Digital done correctly can get you there; plus it is incredibly more convenient. Ever since I introduced an emotion-invoking digital source, I listen all the time. More beautiful music than you can imagine is only a click away. However, the path to digital greatness is not an easy one...

Congrat. I'm sure your system sounds as great as it looks! Ditto what Mikeyc8 said about the analog items.

I'm surprised that you don't have an analog system to go with such magnificent gear? A garrard 301 or Shindo TT would top it of nicely.
