Description

A balance of high fidelity and useable family room.
This is my slowly evolving audio system over more than 30 years.
I'm very happy with the sound.
I have equal amounts of vinyl records and CD's but much prefer listening to vinyl.
IMO, the best bang for the buck for improving the sound was:
1) Purchasing acoustical treatments- ASC Tube Traps
2) Upgrading turntable/cartridge to VPI/Lyra
3) Using Room EQ Wizard (REW) software to optimize speaker and listening position. This software is free!

Thanks. I have been very happy with the reliability of Classe amps. My Classe CAV-75 is still going strong after 20 years and so is my SSP-30 preamp, which I upgraded to the SSP-300.
