Audio Components
  • Yamaha RX-Z9 home theater receiver (review).
  • TASCAM SS-R05 solid state player-recorder, used as an MP3 player (review).
  • Nakamichi MB-1s seven-disc CD changer (still using it!).
  • RAMSA WP-9220 amplifier (for built-in subwoofers - forty pounds of vintage high-end pro-audio goodness. Under-rated at 300 watts RMS x 2 @ 4 ohms - has had no problems keeping up with the Carvin amp it replaced, which was rated at twice the power. Over $900 in 1990 review front view rear view).

  • Adcom ACE-515 line conditioner/power director (two ea.).
  • AudioControl R-130 real time analyzer (gives visual frequency response display of all audio program material).
  • Chase Technologies RLC-1 remote line controller (permits remote control of subs).
  • Yamaha DT-2 audio timer (provides a digital clock display and looks like another system component).
  • Radio Shack 15-2164 omnidirectional FM antenna.
  • Canton Karat 920 DC front L / R speakers.
  • Canton Plus D center / rear surround speakers.
  • Realistic Minimus 7W front DSP effects speakers (don't laugh, I needed something small and they were free!).
  • Shiva 12" DIY passive subwoofers (build thread: Built-in subwoofer project).
- Two dedicated quasi-isolated ground 15A circuits, installed by myself (one for amplifiers, one for source components).
