Settled ..until TT gets here!
01/17/14 at 07:57:03
 
I used to own an MT. Had to sell ALL my gear after some tough times. Now I'm back on my feet, college funds going, and a few toys for dad. I'm still waiting for my Tortuga Audio LDR so I'm toying with the MT and Rachel driving sub and monitors separately. HE-500 sound FANTASTIC on the MT!

The MT has an upgraded 20 step attenuator, and a switch to toggle the OC2 input tube regulation. So you can hear it with or without, but also if you had a tube failure, you could run w/o. More thoughts to come. 6V6 single ended is creamy! I'm running the Zu Unions with it now...

Since my space is limited, and I share the room, I have made some compromises with speaker placement etc. I have isolated the components on Feet of Silence (spring-based), and turntable will be on a separate, dedicated table.

Nice looking setup.  What are those handing on the wall and under the TV?  They look like they are made from a wood pattern.  Do they provide some diffusion?

It is a 5U4, don't think you can run 274 safely in this amp IIRC.

The wall mounts are mashrubiya? something locally sourced for aesthitic reasons by my wife. I doubt they help very much with diffusion but maybe!

I have focused on ceiling and back wall for treatments.I may add some thin 1"rockwool or similar behind the mashrubiya L/R panels. I do also have a few side panels not shown...well the dancer picture is a large Acoustimac absorber.
