Do you have the 2 20 amp dedicated circuits they are supposed to require?
I have lots of dedicated circuits in my HT room but not in my living room.
Those are the same cables I'm using only un-terminated
So comfy, you want my amp history. Ok.
First amp: 1973 McIntosh MA-6100. First integrated amp that Mac made. 70 watts a channel.
Hooked up to Altec-Lansing 3-ways with a PE turntable.
Shoulda never sold that amp. I bet it still works to spec.
1979: Rappaport Amp-1. 100 watts class a. Precision Fidelity tube pre-amp. Harbeth HL-Mk1 speakers. Denon DP-80 TT.
A very rare, awesome sounding amp that ran hotter than hell.
No power switch just 2 cords.
Scary and impractical as hell. Shot pure DC into my Harbeths, welded the drivers solid.
Had beryllium oxide insulators and soft start switch installed by an EE who was an amp guru.
Added a Sony 610-ES cd player in 1983
1992: Mark Levinson ML-11(?) amp and matched pre-amp. Levinson's budget set up. 60 watts per channel but sounded like much more.
Cal Audio CD player. Harbeth HL-P3E(?) speakers and Audio Pro sub.
Nice little system.
2006: Built my Theater\Music Room.
Anthem D-1 pre\pro, BAT VK6200 3 channel amp 200 watts per channel(monster). Anthem A5 5 channel amp, 180(?) watts per channel for surrounds
Salk HT2s(3), Ellis Audio 1801 DIYs, SVS CS-Ultra subs(2).
Replaced the D1 with a D2 2008 I think.
Sept-Oct 2012: Dali Helicon 800 MK-Is, Jungson JA-88 integrated amp, 80 watts class A, Oppo-95.
Oct 31 2012- System ripped-off by scumbags.
January 2013: Revel Studio2s, Oppo-105, Anthem D2, DIY Amp built by my Bro, 100 watts per channel
March added the Emotiva XPA-1Ls monoblocks, 30 watts Class A, 250 watts A\B
So there you have it. My sordid system history
