    Amps Crown PS200 and 2 150 Series 2

    Center channel is an home built Urie 811C powered by a strapped Crown 150

    Rears are L20t soon to be upgraded to 2118 and 2404 powered by reciever front L/R

    System control I am using a Sony ES reciever GA8ES as my preamp and have Urei 839 for EQ L/C/R and use a jbl M552 and M553 as my active crossovers.

    AR HO12 LFE sub to be upgraded to a third LE-14 sub. CD player Sony CA70ES and SACD Sony 755 Vinyl when set up uses a old Technics SU-A6 preamp and either an Empire 698 or a Dual 5000 with a Shure V-15 4

    I use a late 70's Advent 300 receiver for the preamp; CD player is a Yamaha CDX-396 (single disk player & amazing sound quality for the price); an Alesis Matica 500 Professional dual-channel power amp (IMHO probably the best sounding amp I've heard); A Denon AVR-85 HT receiver for AM & FM tuner; and a pair of JBL 4410 Monitors (with the 035TiA tweeters replaced with 2404 "baby cheeks"). The system is currently set up in a small RV, so the 2235 based subs are not used. This basically gives a "nearfield/midfield" enviornment, which the 4410's seem to excel in (incredible soundstage & imaging and very dynamic response, which the system could never achieve when used in a larger room).
    On the Chesky CD "Classics & Jazz " CD the demo track featuring a tom-tom drum being struck while circling an omnidirectional microphone, the 360 degree rotation is produced with about 320 degrees of rotation...again, uncanny imaging which surprised even this grizzled, jaded listener. On my set of first generation Beatles CD's (not listed as remastered, and with minimal digital editing or "cleanup"done), every edit, punch-in, gain riding event etc. etc (MANY, MANY) are very audible in the mix. This system as setup reminds me very much of sitting before a pair of 4310's while working at Schaffer Electronics Corp., ("THE" broadcast automation outfit) in the 70's, with source material from Scully, Ampex, ITC & Studer 1/2 track tape decks @ 30 IPS (but NOT quite). Of course, though, it is an ever-evolving system (where is that grail?".

    In progress is a Pass AX Aleph Class A Power amp (diy) with super symmetry balanced design. I also plan to try active operation in the near future.

    The Pass amps, although diy, easily surpass any commercial product I could afford in this life time. For details see
