Well the New Year has, and will continue to, see some changes to my Stereo setup.
Gone are the 3 blue couches in favour of one, large lounge unit with a big long chaise. Added IKEA EXPEDIT cabinets along the right side wall. Re-orientated the coffee table to suit the lounge setup.
Most importantly to the equipment changes.
I have replaced the hardly run-in Cyrus 6XP with a Cyrus Pre XPd pre-amp and matching 8 Power. I am adding a second 8 Power which I should have next week. Will have a play with the setup configured for both bi-amping or mono-blocs, and see which one I prefer. For now here is the new pairing, ready to be installed:-
And down the track I plan on adding the matching CD8SE CD player, and a PSX-R unit for each unit (4 in total). Running out of room so the HTPC had to be dropped from the Living Room system!
Finally, Ive ordered these speakers from Swedish manufacturer XTZ:-
I should have the bookshelf part this week, but the bass modules are still some weeks away.
