After all my recent upgrades including new Oppo 205, I could not be more happy with my set up and how clear it sounds weather it's multi channel Blu Ray movies, crystal clear SACDs, CDs, or USB Dac streaming from my Mac, the sound is just phenomenal for the price I've paid for all of my components when considering that most of it is pre-loved )

Im still holding onto my 60" Sharp LCD for now, but in the next year or two my next upgrades are to add 4k module to my upgradable NAD AVR whenever they decide to finalize the software, and then I'll be ready to jump to 4k OLED for outgoing 2017 LG models or whatever 2018 will bring. For now this is my set up, in relatively small Brooklyn apartment 12x14ft

- 60" Sharp LCD 1080p
- NAD T775 AVR 130w 2ch/100w 7ch
- Oppo 205 Universal 4k player
- Monster Power 5100MkII conditioner
- B&W DM Series 3 604 towers, 601 surrounds, LCR600 center, ASW650 12" Sub
- Bettercables Silver Serpent 5.1 interconnects and DIY parts-express 13AWG 4 strand shielded speaker cables that I cut and terminated myself.

My back room vinyl 2 channel setup took a big leap forward yesterday. I found a pair of Acoustic Research AR-2ax speakers in my local second hand store a couple of weeks ago. I got them for a great price considering I hit the sweet spot for these speakers. There are more pics posted on the Emotiva Lounge if anyone is interested. That post goes into detail on how I've restored these speakers. Having the cloth surrounds was a huge bonus since they don't need to be replaced.

They are holding up well considering these were built in 68 or 69 according to the serial number on the back of one speaker. The other one lost it's serial number sheet of paper, but is identical to the other one - both are the early AR-2ax models. Production ended in 69 and the 'new' AR-2ax with a smaller tweeter and those god-awful foam surrounds that turn to dust if you look at them.

Let me know what you think of that amp. Oh' and send me pics of your knucklehead.

Always loved the look of the ClearAudio turntables, especially that one with that thick plexiglass platter. Nice! what has been your experience with your Rogue gear? My first time with Rogue Audio gear was listening to their 250 watt tube mono blocks playing through a pair of Vandersteen 7's. It was a great listening session.

I love the Atlas! I wanted a cheap-ish powerhouse, and that's what I got. Can't imagine blasting a pair of monoblocks down here but must sound killer. I wanted a R99 Super Magnum but the Primaluna came up and was just too good of a deal to refuse.

A couple months ago I found myself in a local hifi store with some time to kill. The store had recently opened and I was the only one there along with the owner. I had been there before a couple years earlier and he remembered me. We started a conversation and he was very gracious in letting me listen to a couple of systems. First was a set up of the Sonus Faber Venere S with a Rega turntable and Rega intergrated amp. It sounded great. We listened to some acoustic guitar and some acoustic folk. The midrange was sweet and organic. It was very impressive for a pretty simple system and relatively inexpensive components. He then took me into the big sound room full of McIntosh, Magico, and various high end speakers and gear. He hooked up the MC275 tube amp to a McIntosh tube preamp (forgot the model but it was big, beautiful and $$$$$$). He had recently received the new Dynaudio Contour 20 standmount speakers, so he hooked them up. The first track he played was Pat Metheny's cover of And I Love Her from his album What's It All About. OMG. We had just listened to this on the SF Venere S's, but this was something else. Listening on the SF/Rega system, the sound was great and appeared right in front of you. It was like sitting in the 5th row of a concert in a small venue. On the Mc/Dyn system it was like sitting in a cloud where the sound was all around you. It was like sitting in the guitar. It gave me goosebumps. We listened to music for an hour, most of the time with my jaw agape at how delicate, detailed and emotional the sound was, before a couple of other customers came in and I graciously thanked my host. It was an the best demo I had heard and I left changed - it was an audiophile epiphany. I decided why I could likely never afford the system I was lucky enough to listen to I wanted to try a tube based system at home. My first thought was to look for a modestly priced tube amp and use it to connect to either my Peachtree Nova220se which would function as the preamp/dac, or I could hook it up to my XMC-1/Emo system downstairs for a hybrid system and use it when I want to listen to 2-channel. After copious research and almost pulling the trigger a couple time on some amps by Cary and Rogue I came across Primaluna. I found Upscale Audio and they had a demo Dialogue One Integrated. I decided to go for it and ordered it. I received it less than a week ago and I've only had a few hours of listening. However, I am loving it. Unfortunately, I ordered a recertified DAC at the same time (not from Upscale), but the DAC was defective. It has been sent back and replacement arrives today. So I've primarily been listening using my Dragonfly Dac hooked up to my iphone with usb camera adaptor. Still, while its not quite the Mc/Dyn system, it does deliver the tube experience. My speakers are Totem Hawks. I was concerned that the PL wouldn't have enough grunt to drive these like my Peachtree Nova220 did as these aren't the most efficient speakers. So far its not an issue at all, and I also ordered a matching set of KT-120 tubes that I just put in yesterday to give the PL even more oomph. However, even using the stock EL34 tubes the PL didn't seem to break a sweat, so it will be interesting to see what the KT-120s deliver. How does it compare to the Peachtree? That's tough. I love Peachtree and have had many of their products. Its hard to say that the PL is better at this point, but it is different. The sound on the PL is more holographic and natural. The sound, similar to the Mc/Dyn system, appears more as a cloud of sound in the soundstage whereas with the PT everything is detailed, defined and neatly put in its place. They both sound great, but I'm mesmerized by the PL right now. Sorry for the long write up. I'll probably start a new thread on a review and comparison more once I get my dac running and spend more time with the PL. I'll also want to hook it up to the XMC-1 and see how it sounds in my downstairs HT system compared to the XPA-2. Should be interesting.

Very nice system! Did the stands come with it? And is that a Pro-Ject TT?
Thanks!! Stands are an additional purchase (and very overpriced at $1,000) but match the speakers perfectly, and look super high end. Really beautiful.

The turntable is a Pro-Ject 6Perspex with sumiko blue EVOIII cart. Good eye!

Thanks! Will change a bit soon as I'm considering replacing the phono preamp.

Well, I made significant progress in my 2-channel setup today. I still want to do some room treatments and decorate a bit, but with the signal chain complete (for now) and the addition of a rug and a comfy recliner, the sound is amazing! Tidal Masters are incredible. Today was build-out day, tomorrow I'll start tweaking positioning and whatnot.
