Not an ideal room by any means.  Any devices mentioned under my system tweeks are those that were tried and made an improvement in my system/room and therefore remained in place.  Many other tweeks have come and gone.


Components Toggle details

    • Krell KRC-3 Preamp
    Pairs beautifully with the power amp.  Not the highest in the Krell preamp lineup of the 90’s but synergy matters lol
    • Krell KSA-250s Power Amplifier
    (Mostly) Class Amplifier produces tight, IMPACTFUL bass, neutral mid range and open air/detail; neither bright nor fatiguing.

    MC/MM tubed phono preamp with Mullard 6JD8 (1963 date code, Blackburn UK factory) and Mullard 12AT7 (1968 date code, Blackburn UK)

    • Benz Micro Glide M2
