Crumpets second system


Recommended Posts

Finally set up my second system (again!)

From the top:

Pro-Ject Studie with 9" and 12" arms

Sumiko BPS Evo3 on the 9", rebodied & potted Denon DL103R on the 12"

Audio Innovations P1 phono stage and ancient (er) Audio Research MCP-2 MC pre-amp with MM pass-through to the P1.

Antique Sound Labs WAV8 mono pp 8wpc valve amps and my sweet little Audio Innovations L1 pre-amp. And lastly, Omega Super 3 XRS hempcone single driver loudspeakers.

And by hokey it sounds good!post-108939-0-27698600-1459738193_thumb.

Very cool system. I remember fixing that ancient Audio Research contraption for you!

 

Those Omegas impressed me at your place...

The Audio Research is an interesting gizmo, I'd get better results using a proper SUT but I'd then have to muck around swapping cables etc - this palaeolithic audio device allows me to have 2 cartridges/arms connected to my phono stage and swap between MC and MM at the flick of a switch.

Sometimes the art of laziness can be quite ingenious - and so righteous.

Very nice............I Like..........Is that DNM speaker cable I see?

How do you like it?

The DNM Reson is a pretty good sounding cable, seems suited to the low powered valve gear and high sensitivity speakers. The other cables (that you can't see) are a mixture of affordable Audioquest Diamondback, and a quite expensive Neotech cable between the Audio Research and preamp.

All this gear (except the turntable) was picked up for a song really, it's a fun little system - upbeat & lively without sounding too brash.

Fun fun fun!

      Up for sale is a Hagerman Tuba headphone tube amplifier complete with original accessories and a matched NOS pair of Amperex/Philips 50s Holland D Getters EL84s.
       
      The Hagerman Tuba costs $964 AUD and the Aperex EL84s costs $200 AUD. The amp comes with a transferable 10 year warranty. It was made early this year and is in perfect condition. The Amperex EL84 D Getters is considered to be the best EL84 tube available, so you're getting the amp in an endgame package.
       
      The amp has a dead silent background with an expansive sound-stage. The Tube stage gives it that sweet sounding tube detail, while the solid state stage gives it that versatility with dynamics, planar and IEMs. 

      Shipping is about $50 - $60 to AUS.
