Double D's updated rig April 2010

Post by Double D » Sat Apr 17, 2010 11:33 am

Figured it had been an age since my system was updated on here, so here we go..
Pre-amp is the BC303-DWBB, yeah that's the power supply for the pre-amp in the corner.. 8) , sources are the Marantz SA-11S2, and MD102"T", Power amp is my venerable BC206, and speakers are Harbeth Monitor 30's on Foundation stands. Cabling is all Transparent Ultra MM1.
Power filtering is a BC6000 with a MusicRing1200 chained to it. The 206 is straight off the wall with a BC68mk2 parrallel.
Gear is sitting on Cambre CORE stands.
Power cords are either BC 62's or GutWire C-clef's and PowerClef's. Image

The vinyl spinner is in a secondary (smaller) rig in another room. It may soon get merged with the main rig, but a lot of my vinyl is less than "perfect", so, I'm just having fun with vinyl in a secondary rig. It keeps "audiophilia nervosa" from taking over IF vinyl moves to the main system. :oops:

This is one imposing looking system. The size of your 206 alone is really put into perceptive! WOW...! Image

That's a great looking setup. I think a NSL would fit nicely into this decor :lol:

Just curious what made you move away from the Verity? I heard the Sarastro and Lohengrin at the Montreal show and really enjoyed them. A little pricey however.

Are the Harbeth's a better match than the Verity's?

Let's just say, that in the context of this room (which is known to be a bit quirky.. :oops: ) and the system that they are paired with.. Yes, I am overall happier with the Harbeths. 8)
I am listening to a broader scope of music again, and enjoying it a lot more.
I am still considering pivoting the room back so that the speakers will fire the length of the room.. but I'm just enjoying for now .. that's obviously a full days work to re-jig it. :roll:
But, let me also state, that I almost wish that I still had the Verity's here for the impending re-visit of the NSL amp. I think perhaps that would have been a match made in heaven, if what I heard of the NSL was right when it was here about a month or so ago.

:D I have Lagavulin and am willing to travel great distances to listen to a rig like that....I would love to hear what that amplifier preamplifier could do with my Mani-2 speakers. Your system looks wonderful.

Well guys, I'm not much of a drinker... but if there is interest in having a listen, it's not a problem.
The NSL is returning tomorrow (Sunday) for another round.. this is getting to be like a UFC re-match card.. :shock: So, this should be pretty interesting to see what the outcome is. 8)
