This is a system put together in a vaulted ceiling room that is 15 ft. wide by 24 ft. long. The ceiling starts from the speaker end at 8 ft. going to 18 ft. high at the opposite end.  The Mono amps has 500 watts with 100 amps and pre is the 2200 tubed mac. With digital, using a Aurender streamer connected to an Ayers QB9 DSD USB DAC. The CD is Ayres universal CD as well as BMC belt drive transport with a matching DAC. I now have analog led by a turntable that is on magnetic feet with an Sound Smith cartridge. The speaker have 1000 watts of internal power for the two 12" woofers per speaker. The speakers have an active cross over that is DSP programmable for maximum control.

Thanks for the comment as I have follow your system and knowledge for some time. You were one of the first to use the Aries as your mains. I am still working as everyone else is on these site on getting things together.


What a wonderful and room and the AERIS plus Wavelet to crown the achievement! It must sound amazing!


Adding a Aurender N100H Upgraded w/SR Black Fuses to the front end and replacing the Ayre C-5Xe with a Ayre DX 5 DSD. Photos to follow


Replaced the Mc352 for a pair of Mc 501's


Update replaced the Xilica XP 4080 with the new Wavelet. Will be hooking it up this week.


Adding analog to the system piece by piece. Will be adding photos soon.


update : added the Ayre QB-9 DSD Flagship USB DAC for just streaming from the Salk USB output. It is a great DSD which the Salk handles.
