In addition to the CD processor, I use the 390s as a DAC from my MacBook Pro optical out. CD is direct to the power amp--the flexibility of the 390s with it's variable output/volume control is incredible. It's an exceedingly simple and compact system with very nice sound and good quality, mostly US-made, components.
I'm happy with the current system but might consider a couple of upgrades at some point in the future. I welcome any thoughts on the following:
- Levinson 380s
- Magico ASub. Probably not since I'm not aware that I'm missing any bass extension and I only listen to jazz and classical anyhow. That said, I'm curious if anyone has experience with this powered sub.
Thank you! As much as music, industrial design is a passion of mine, especially Nakashima and FLW. The Magicos do sound fantastic (and actually look better without the grills)--still breaking them in. The room could probably use some sound treatment as it's a little bit live. Any suggestions for unobtrusive but effective treatment?
