Been listening to LPs since my mother's Perry Como records.  A semi-active musician in my local area, I have collected music for years but never really heard music.. That is until my interest renewed and I began to put together a system that could actually reproduce what was being heard in the studio.  Getting there piece by piece....

Dimensions: 17’ × 12’  Medium
Ceiling: N/A

Components Toggle details

    • Luxman L-507uX Intergrated Amp
    • Rega Rega RP6 Delrin Platter and Subplatter
    Has outboard PSU.  Has full Groovetracer package with aluminum subplatter, white delrin platter, counterweight, and 1 lb record weight.  Also a 'Little Belter'
    Sits on a 2" maple block which sits on anti-vibration shop mat.
    • Jolida JD9II
    Minimally modded with interior soundproofing sheets, a new set of OP627's in the output section, and the use of various NOS 12ax7 tubes.  My favorite are early 1960's
    • NAD c546bee
    CD player.
    • Denafrips Ares II
    R2R DAC.  Presently using with my NAD CD as a transport.
    • Klipsch Heritage Heresy III
    • Klipsch R-115SW
    15"  400watt sub
    • Furman PL-PlusC Power conditioner
    !5 Amp power conditioner, isolator, and distributor.  I have used these with professional performance gear and they work well for the $$$.
    • Pangea Audio x-brace audio stand
    All of this sitting on a very sturdy, stable, and inexpensive stand.
    • PylePro PPEQ-200
    Stereo dual 10-band EQ which is noisy, but works nicely for correcting the shrill (or muddy) sound of certain recordings.  Not used much, and out of the circuit when not in use.

Thanks mj.  It is not easy to match a system together.  And expensive.
BTW, those Pangea shelves are 3/4" MDF, covered with a vinyl carbon-fiber finish.


You did well with your sold equipment choices. Enjoy!!!

Are those actual carbon fiber shelves? I've always wanted to know how carbon fiber compares to solid maple, which I see you use for your TT.
