Kingpin Audio Physic on Tubes Stereo System

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
This is my stereosystem based on the following devices:

Amplifier
- Cayin A-55T (with KT88 Svetlana winged C tubes)







Source
- Modified Logitech Squeezebox Touch


LiPo Powered Power Supply for the Logitec Touch



DAC
- Metrum mini nos DAC Quad



Speakers
Audio Physic Brilon 2.0
Audio Magic Genta Stands
Audio Physic Luna I






Cables
Apogee Wyde Eye


Canare 4S8






How does it sound? Well here is a short impression and of course in real life the sound is much better but it gives a little impression.
To me it sounds dynamically, 3D, huge soundstage and detailed but never to harsh.

Nice! What did you do to modify your squeezebox touch?

After tweaking to toolbox 3.0 i build a liPo powered Lineair Power Supply.
That's a DC input with a very good regulator to make a stable 5V dc output but what's more important is that this power supply has a ripple of 10µV (top-top) at -110dB (1Hz until 100kHz) with a load of 330mA-1,3A, output measured stable at 4,9856Vdc.





This is not just a minor upgrade but the difference is huge, improvement on soundstage (more body), tighter bass and no more 'digital' sound, it's more analog now.

That's freaking cool, well done! I have always wanted to try out a tube amp. Is there anything not outrageously expensive you could recommend?

Well, there are a lot of chinese tubeamps but the problem with most of them is build quality. So for a good tube amp with hard wiring, good high bandwidth transformers and tubes (good tubes you can buy afterwards) are not cheap.

Nice work!

mmm...tubes

mmmm....Audio Physic...

I've had the Audio Physic Virgos, Libras and Scorpios in my room, usually powered by Conrad Johnson tube gear. One of my favorite all time sound combos.

Libra very nice speaker ...

I'm using a very rare to find Brilon 2.0 designed like yours by Joachim Gerhard.
It's actually a Virgo III monitor with the units from the Avanti III.
The electronics (crossovers) and the veneer are matchin pairs which means that the difference between both speakers is less then 0.5dB in the whole audio spectrum.
I had many speakers but AP makes me smile. I also own 3 more AP as well for my home theater system which i'm building right now.
