    I didn't go for the KTE version but the standard MAY includes the separate power supply and so should be close to the KTE in terms of performance.

Hello! Great system!
Out of curiosity, have you had success plugging your Karan amp into the Puritan? I have a 300W amp, and have been considering the PSM156, but I'm worried that it might constrain my amp in some way.
Also - very curious to hear if you found any great power cable upgrades for connecting the PSM156 to the wall. The Puritan Ultimate cable seems like the logical first step, but curious to learn from your experience. Happy listening!


...i think i remember the DEQX + speaker package....was it three separate drivers with active amps?

I never heard it but it was on my radar for a while and then i set my heart on another piece of kit, and so it goes on! 

thanks for the kind words. 


Great looking listening room. The big screen compliments the big sound I bet.

I just saw the comments on DEXQ, I was employed in Australia by Lenehan Audio and Mike used to build DEXQ speakers and sold them as sets, they looked great too.


Hi Am. Thanks for your message. I don’t have any plans for surround sound and will stay 2 channel. I would like to utilise the active crossover from the DEQX and so the next upgrade will
probably be some more amplification. DEQX is just about to start retailing a new mono block (A250x3) with tri amp outputs, which looks interesting but I will have to keep dreaming for now....


Very nice system! Will you eventually integrate it into a surround setup?
