This is my current set-up!  It sounds fantastic and is the best sound I have ever had.  I absolutely love listening to music on this set-up.  Every genre I throw at it, it just sounds awesome!  My favorite component in my system has got to be my speakers.  I absolutely love the Fritz Carrera BE’s and when paired with a sub, you get world class sound.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time with them now and they always please, every single time I turn them on.  So a big shout out and Thank You to Fritz for building such a solid speaker.

    • Bluesound Node 2i
    Upgraded Cullen Cables Avius Plug with gold plated sonar quest plugs
    • Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit
    I love this DAC!  Really great resolution and detail.  This DAC is an essential part in my system.  I have tried lesser DACs and ghe difference is quite large.
    • Analysis Plus Inc. Solo Crystal Oval 8 spk
    Absolutely fantastic speaker cables.  Well worth their price on the used market.  Incredible bass, great highs, but the openess and the timing are impeccable.  They also add a little warmth and fullness to my system.
    • Analysis Plus Inc. Solo Crystal XLR cables
    I’m using these in between my amp and dac.  Again, just fantastic cables. These combined with my speaker cables, power cables, dac and speakers, my system is very open and detailed sounding.  I’m a fan of Analysis Plus cables in the entire line.
    • Cullen Cable Gold, Crossover, Avius
    Cullen Cables are the best bang for the buck power cables in my opinion. He’s got many different cables, all at very reasonable costs considering what you get.  Highly Recommended!
    • Fritz Speakers CARRERA BE
    Fritz is one of the most under rated speakers builder around.  His build quality is fantastic.  His woodworking skills are awesome.  His crossovers are awesome.  He uses the highest quality drivers available.  No one else is doing it from start to finish by themselves, at his level, that I know about it.  ‘Nuff said.
    • GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Traps
    I have 6 GIK 244 bass traps.
    • GIK Acoustics Monster bass traps
    I also have 3 GIK monster bass traps. These are 7” thick with 4” of owens corning.
    • Porterport Outlet
    I am using 1 Porterport, made by Albert Porter here on Audiogon.
    • Cullen Cable Pass and Seymour
    I using a Pass and Seymour outlet as well.  These are only $11 from Patrick at Cullen Cables.  If you want to go inexpensive these cannot be beat.  The porterport is better though!
    • Belles Aria Integrated
    I just got this amp and love it.
    • Periodic Audio BE
    I’ve had these in ear monitors for 3 years now and have immensely enjoyed them.  Dan, the owner of Periodic Audio is awesome!  Best warranty customer service I have ever received.  His BE in ear monitors impressed me more than anything else at can jam that year.  My new Belles Aria has an awesome headphone amp so I will be enjoying the BE’s more than ever!

Thanks for sharing that info. It looks great. I’m sure matching stands will make the system pop even more.


Really like your small rack/shelf.  Who's the manufacturer?

You're lucky to have such a well behaved cat.  We have two cats.  10 year old Agnes has never messed with my stereo, but our 5 month old kitten, Ripley, is very interested which is no surprised.
