Title: My humble system
Post by TimB on 10/28/18 at 02:25:41

It's a little overpowering for my small living room, but in a couple months, it'll have its own dedicated room!

I'm really happy with the gear I've ended up with, it's been quite a ride.

SE34I.5 currently with stock tubes
Rogue Pharaoh (used as pre-amp with Brimar CV4003's)
MoFi StudioDeck turntable
Denon DL-103R cart
Lounge Copla step-up amp
Lounge LCR MKIII phono pre
Mac Mini w/ Audirvana
BorderPatrol SE USB DAC
Zu Omen Mk.II's
Zu Undertone Mk.II
Zu Option RCA interconnects and Birth power cables
Trying our some Nordost 2 Flat speaker cables, but usually I have Zu Mission LC's

I sit in awe every time I listen.

Nice, very nice. I think it's a "Proper" system, well done, and thanks for sharing.

Thanks all!  It does sound sweet.  In fact, I've removed the Rogue from the equation altogether.  It was "compressing" the soundstage a bit.

I've rolled in some Tung-Sol EL34B's and so far I'm diggin' it.

The DAC is crazy.  Based on measurement and specs, it should "suck", but it's far from it. Everyone who has come over to hear it has been blown away.  I couldn't care less about "hi-res", etc.  A tastefully executed 16/44.1 is all I need to be happy.
