Re: 2 Channel Picture Gallery

That is a cool system Chris, thanks for posting

I've seen your system and it is certainly post worthy. Perhaps you could share that with us, too?

My System
Re: 2 Channel Picture Gallery

This is really a dual purpose system, but my original objective was a stereo built around a pair of Magnepans (first 3.6s and now 3.7s). Oh, how I wish I had the room and the cash for MrAcoustat's 8800s! Anyway, while the preamp is multichannel, it is purely analog. The rack is a DIY effort. The object on the right is a clock - photo was taken at 3:19:57. Obviously, the photos weren't all taken at the same time.

the complete system, head on

the principle source (Bryston BDP-1) and DAC (Audio Research DAC7)

the crossover (Bryston 10B Sub), preamp (McCormack MAP1, SMc modded) and amp (VAC Phi 300.1, VAC modded)

My System
Re: 2 Channel Picture Gallery

Kevin... that is very nice. VERY nice! Although I might would try to hide some of those wires for photos. Mine looks like a mess, but my cabinet is not nearly as big and nice, so it hides them pretty well during pics.

What are the little thingy things on the floor holding up the speaker cables?

"Speaker cable risers"
The thinking behind it, is that it elevates the cables off the carpet to keep them away from a possible source of static electricity.

Thanks for the compliment. The system was something of a midlife (man, is that wishful thinking) crisis - okay, it was a 50th birthday present to myself. It's in a room above a stand alone garage and it's very well insulated - can crank it at 2:00AM and disturb nobody. The DIYness of the rack is fairly apparent if you look closely enough (one of these days, I'll learn how to stain woodwork properly). I guess I could give the photos to my son and let him photoshop the cables out of view, but it's a pain to mess with them for real. When the lights are off, as they are now, I can't see the wires. The power cables actually disappear beneath panels and there are three dedicated lines terminated in the floor.

The speaker wires are supported off the carpeting by Lapp ceramic insulators that I bought from an electrical supply house for a few bucks each.
