Description

Started as a full 5.1 setup with Onkyo entry level av receiver. After 2 years my attention switched to 2 channel stereo systems , sold the Onkyo sr-507 got an awesome deal on the Denon  1500ae series amp and sa-cd player. Paired with the Jamo S608 full range speakers, 150w 6 Ohm. Speaker cables are the Chord company Rumor 2 factory banana termination. I am using some cheep RCA cables from a local store, gold plated termination and 99.3 oxygen free copper (update in the near future). The latest addition is the Project USB Box S+ for digital audio, capable of 384hz sample rate (asio drivers ).

Update 1: Got into the turntable scene . Started with an entry level Project Debute Carbon with an Ortofon 2M RED cartridge. The record collection started Expanding.

Update 2: The big one, NEW SPEAKERS ARE HERE !! FOR more than 10 years of dust collecting the whole jamo S608HCS3 setup is gone. After a long time of decision making and a lost deal on the KEF LS50 bought the new KEF R3 bookshelf speakers. Sound is like a dream, a big step up in build and sound quality well worth the price. Still stuck in my small room, NOT for long NEW update soon.

Will add more info and pictures ......still under construction

Any suggestions and comments are welcome!

I like your selection of equipment, but better placement of speakers and gear would enhance your listening experience.
