Description

My latest system creation with incredible resolution, detail & tonal accuracy.  More than once this system has brought tears to my eyes when listening to a fine variety of music.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to listen to ribbons if you get a chance make sure you do as they present a live music portrayal that many times rivals live music.  With the C-19 pandemic we are all living with, this system definitely gives me the opportunity to forget that and enjoy myself in another place.

Hi Rossman, enjoy your Studio Grands!
I have a pair around as well, as does my best friend :-) 

Hope you are doing well.

I am a serious fan of Apogees. I’ll never trade my Duetta IIs. I’m going to be doing a full Graz upgrade the end of this year. I’m sure it is due to limited space options, but your gems are definitely way too close to the walls. Need to breath :).

Wow,those speakers are monsters.I have to believe they give a Krell a heck of a work/out.Honestly,The amp must be working like a dog.I would maybe consider,finding another big SS amp and run the ribbons with one and the woofers with the other maybe.I bet those speakers would open up like nothing you have heard before.Just a thought.Years ago I had a set of Martin Logan’s driven by some parasound jc1s in a HT system.When I would run it in 2 channel with music cranked,you could fry an egg on those things.Just thinking out loud

That is a great looking system and it has to sound great as well. A friend had the Apogee Grand system as well. What a huge sound!

Thanks for posting your system

Really nice old school system Ross! Those Apogee's are monsters and love mixing Levinson and Krell you don't see that combo too often. And the classic Tice powerblock to round it all out very 90's retro!
