Nice. What was that on the tv? Looks like some Alex Grey art or something from Tool?

Nice "smiley" on the vintage Audiosource EQ . Maybe decouple the speakers? Not a knock just an observation.

By decouple do you mean wall mount them so they're not on the same shelf as the TT?

P.S. I straightened the center tube after I noticed how tilted it was in the picture

Yup. Wall mount or speaker stands even, a bit away from the wall, if you have the space.

Once again, very nice office system; love it.

Thanks for straightening those tubes out. They had a bit of a lean to them and I wanted to reach out and align them.

I have more than a 2 channel setup - sort of. I use a hybrid setup made of whats in my sig line - plus a Marantz SR5008 to drive the center and surrounds for movies along with the Oppo 103. The Oppo and Marantz doesn't get much use. The nice thing about the hybrid setup is I get to use the song towers for music and movies. The center channel is a custom built by Selah Audio 3 way and sounds awesome for dialog. Very clean and clear and the timbre match to the song towers is very close since both use the same OW2 tweeter.

Best of all? No sub needed for two channel sounds! The song towers are very good and go very low.

I rebuilt (refoamed drivers and recapped the crossovers) a pair of 1979 vintage Physics Genesis II speakers. I had high expectations due to all of the raving reviews.

Man, they sound really, really, great. Even exceeded my expectations. But crap, I think they're just gonna be too big for my office setup...



Received the new JJ EL84 tubes, too. Maybe I should break them in together for 20 hours or so and then decide.

Thanks.

Ikea Kallax
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00275848

I just assembled it last week. I like it, but I didn't like the default mounting brackets. It only had 3 brackets to mount it to the wall, but the positions are pre-drilled, so you can't align them to your wall studs.

Since I knew this was going to be holding heavy records, equipment, and speakers, I added 4 additional brackets into studs.

Plus, it didn't come with white plastic caps for the metal allen bolts that hold the shelves. Nothing major, but we assembled some ikea shelves and they came with plastic screw covers. But they were Phillips screws and didn't fit over the allen heads.

Edit:
I preferred the rebuilt vintage Genesis speakers over the smaller Polks, so I moved them to the credenza below (ear-height to my desk). This also provided floor/wall isolation between the speakers and the turntable. Plus I added sorbothane isolation pads under the turntable feet.

You know something, fellas? With all this recent chatter about EQs, especially the AudioSource one cited a few posts up, it got me thinking about the way separate graphic EQs have gone the way of the do-do bird (in two channel audio) and how modern stereo gear doesn't, for the most part, offer connections to accommodate such equalizers...I would love to re-introduce a graphic EQ into my separate two-channel system, but unfortunately my stereo receiver doesn't have a "tape loop/tape monitor" hookup (nor does it have a Loudness contour/button, which I am regretting now, even though I wanted an Onkyo) so I can't incorporate one...


What's your opinion and consensus regarding the lack of EQs in more modern day, audiophile-oriented setups? I understand the whole audiophile argument that "the less circuits in the chain the better," thus the reason to engage "pure" modes and eliminate tone controls and such, but is it just "accepted" today that two-channel setups simply don't work with EQs? Is it better to just run a system without EQ, leaving, say, tone controls flat or simply defeated?


What are your thoughts, fellow two-channelers?

He might be since he has a miniDSP in his signal chain but he could just be using it for crossover duty.

Graphic EQ's are the old way of doing EQ and are limited to changing predetermined frequencies and frequency widths (Q). PEQ's are more sophisticated because you can correct any frequency while adjusting frequency width and amplitude but require measurement mics (miniDSP UMIK-1, Dayton UMM-6, EMM-6, etc), software (Room EQ Wizard, XTZ, etc), and the knowledge to understand the graphs the software generates to implement them correctly. You can't really do PEQ's by ear like graphic EQ's. Then there's the next level room correction stuff like Dirac, Acourate, and Audiolense...

I have two pieces of EQ inserted into the digital path, my sources are all digital.

sources -> switch -> EQ1 -> EQ2 -> DAC -> preamp -> amplifiers -> speakers.

Sometimes I use it, sometimes not.

Right now, this:

Thanks, fellas, for the replies regarding EQ in the modern world...


I was more interested, however, in discussing why more modern hi fi gear -- specifically more affordable pieces like the stereo receivers from Onkyo, H/K, Yamaha et al -- aren't coming with hookups for equalizers (I think some still do offer TAPE 2/MONITOR jacks, no?) and if it's "better" to just have this out of the signal chain anyway...

I agree I miss the connection to and still have a couple very old receivers I used to use one with,lol. Guess I haven't really thought about it till I saw that audiosource one earlier and it would be nice to hook up to my onkyo 709 I have in the garage when listening to the v-tuner and be able to tweak it in this way, HHMMMM gonna have to look into this now.
