Description

Novemeber 2016-Added 4 x LAMM m2.2 for biamping the TADS, driven by  the LAMM LL1.1 preamp.A match made in heaven!( or in Brooklyn NY......)
 The LAMM amps will be set on 4 SRA ocxl+2 amp stands.The LL1.1 power supply will be set on  HRS m3xs.
October 2016-the pas lab gear proved to be completely unreliable and after 7 months  of use,one of the xs amps died! good riddence!

October 2015-update--  after 4 years of enjoyable listening sessions with my focal stella em, i replaced them with the TAD REF1s.The ref1s bring more of the focal's strengths to the forefront ,and then some.

 Also upgraded the siltech double cown i/cs to the newly developed TRIPLE CROWNS-  a significant upgrade on its own.

April 2021—

Replaced my Lamm gear with the soulution 701s, and 725 preamp.

Also replaced my TAD speakers with magico m6.

HRS AMP  were upgraded to the vxr models.

No, the M6 aren't going anywhere anytime soon.  one of the best speakers out there, at any price point , in my experience.

Cy, thank you for your kind words. Appreciate it.
The room was built up from the studs up and mineral fiber, accustical rubber ,homasaut  panels an3/8 “ sheet rock to create an isolated/ insulated room.
Has its own sub panel and grounding. 
The treatments  were a trial and error till the right balance of absorption and diffusing was created.
The rest, plug, play and enjoy.....

I really like this system.  The gear speaks for itself but I'm even more impressed with the care you put into room treatments.  They're beautiful.

Wow!...
such room care and electronics deployment deserve a lot of respect, I'm really impressed, furthermore your TAD R1's is one of my preferred loudspeakers ever, I can only image what level of satisfaction to listen to your system.
Well done, really really well done!

TH, 
Apologies for replying sooner.the dCS Vivaldi 2.0 is amazing. Even after 4 years of ownership ,I’m amazed how musical and detailed it’s sound is.I can’t recommend it enough.
As for the Sara vs. the hers-  to my ears, the hrs has the capability to open the sound further, and lowering the noise floor by a good 2-3 dbs.
Thank you, I’m enjoying it immensely.

Pls tell me:
- about the Vivaldi's performance.
- about the differences between the SRA IsoBases & HRS M3XS'.

Beautiful system.  It must be revelatory!!

Just wondered if you had ever tried a 10MHz clock in your Vivaldi system -- I just added one to mine and the benefit is pretty considerable despite relatively modest cost (at least in the context of DCS)

Yes they are ... in every facet and aspect....they continue to exceed my expectations and preform way above their price tag.
I feel your pain...😀😀😀😀

The TADs are amazing speakers....work and life are intruding far too much :-) I'm getting grumpy due to lack of time to do extended listening!

The best bass i had in my room over the years was from the rockport hyperions. omg- it would peel the paint off. the worst bass ( or for that matter ,the overall worst speaker i  ever had) was from the tidal sunray. the focals stellas  were imactful but rolled off some, yet detailed and tunefull. the  TADS  , to my ears are the best of  all worlds.

ozy

 yes , it's  so very true that the TADS are not the last  word in sub 25hz reproduction, but ,like you said, their bass is tuneful and still impactful.

ozy

Yes they are....13 months later they are continuing to show me new things! I miss the deep sub-bass bottom end of my Legacy AERIS as these seem to roll-off in room below 23Hz or so (have yet to measure with REW but will soon) but the bass they do put out is tuneful, accurate, super-fast and resounding!

Jim,  my all tubes system, vac and bat before that were great sounding systems. tubes, without a question in my my mind, humanize the sound. but.... too much of a good thing is just too much. i also arrived at the conclusion that a well designed tube preamp is far more critical in "humanzinig " the sound then a tube amplifier.to my ears ,the lamm ll1.1 is at the pinnacle.
  the hybrid design manages to  create a great deal of  current to drive not- so- easy -loads speakers, but having a tube in the signal path lends ,again ,to a more human sound ,not brittle or etched.
