I live in a rather odd shaped Loft. I only have one side wall and that's all glass and sliding doors so I can not really effectively use room modifications there. the other side is open to the rest of the living space kitchen etc. I have 18" ceilings front wall that taper down to 16" at the back. my place to compound the issues is L shaped and i'm sitting beside a gas fireplace  in the crook of the L with another 12' behind me on the right side and the fire place next to me on the left. room treatment has been an issues and a compromise as this is the only living space. I will add pictures.

    I got this on a trade deal with my Spendor D9.2's I was going to move it along to another person. and put the money back into speakers. but after a listen i don't think i can. just a great sounding DAC. now I'm hooked on Chord.

    This is one speaker that's not very well know, but i moved from the Spendor D9.2's to these and at half the cost they smoked the Spendor's in all regards.
    • A/D/S L910 Speakers
    my vintage A/S/D L910's from the late 70's early 80's era fully restored with new tweeter and mid domes from Richard So. They will do until my speaker hunt is over, they are some of the better speakers form that era.

"Did you buy the Sansui TU 9900 on the used market, I sold one to I think it was the Music Room about 3.5 years ago. Just curious if you ended up with it. Good looking system."

Would love to hear your thoughts on the difference between the Omegas and the Heresy IVs. Great looking system BTW!


What's up with the stacked Quads/Quad lls and the 301/Decca?


Very nice looking system and room!


What a beautiful room and system. Your plinth is spectacular. I have a Purpleheart clad with MDF interior under my Garrard 401. It's all I want or need.

Very nicely done! Regards,
