It has taken me three years to put this system together. All components work perfectly. I have struggled with selling it however i am planning to use the proceeds to purchase a Meridian g series processor. This system has run very well with my maggie mg-12's and also my b&w cm 8's. All you need to do is google the company and the specific products to see what are mostly rave reviews. I certianly have never heard a system that sounds better for the price. I would give this system an overall 7/10 only because of the age. I think that the buyer that takes it will think that I am being conservation however better to under promise and over deliver. Everything guaranteed to arrive in working order. If for any reason you would like to return it in the first 24 hours after it has been delivered I will refund your money minus the shipping.
Company information- Audio Alchemy was a high fidelity audio equipment manufacturer based in California, USA. It produced many lines of relatively affordable audio products, including CD players, transports, digital audio processors, and amplifiers. They have since gone out of business, the primary engineers moving on to found Channel Islands Audio and (now defunct) Perpetual Technologies. Audio Alchemy products made innovative use of the I²S audio interface, usually reserved for the internal connection between the CD transport and DAC of a CD player. Audio Alchemy brought the interface out to a DIN connector, allowing a very low jitter connection between the CD transport and external DAC, by transmitting the clock signal and the audio signal in parallel. This offers a superior alternative connectivity method to something like S/PDIF, which sees the clock signal embedded into the audio signal. The process of extracting the clock signal from the data stream is where jitter is introduced. Perpetual Technologies and Camelot Technology also produce products that use the I²S interface. Several members of the original Audio Alchemy team, including Peter Madnick, Audio Alchemy's co-founder, have formed Alchemy².
