LA... for sure with ground systems improvement would be alot better! I like my equipments simple; i don’t like it all clutter and messy, i like it clear up in front of my sound stage, to me it helps with imaging. I had great racks and use alot of isolation but they all come n go, so to make my life easy, i just use butcher blocks for simplicity and don’t have to deal with equipments sizing and fitting. Happy listening!
Hi BJ, Really appreciate the feedback. All internal chassis on all my units are dampened by EAR materials. The Turntable sits on an extra isolation platform from the manufacture. I use 3’ maple birch butcher board for the turntable, which helps alot with vibration. The flooring was custom with 1.5 inch of Russian plywood underneath to help reduces any vibration.
I am using both; the NAF and Triode Labs. Both are great amps. Atmasphere is an otl type designs, personally i am not a big fan of otl amps. Atmasphere preamp with the NAF and Triode Labs are both great match. I can run it balanced or single ended with a switch on my amps.
Manfedas...Your Dynastation mk3 is an excellent cd player; very musical and analog sounding! You can take it to the next level with power supply upgrades ( running on dc). Your coupling caps on that unit is very critical ( v-caps cutf series). Let me know if i can be a help with any upgrades. Happy Listening!
Am... what you see in the middle is a horn subwoofer custom built by Dr. Bruce Edgar. Inside the massive unit is an 18’ subwoofer, horn loaded field coils type. Active & integrated only with Dr. Edgar horn the Titan 2.
