Thread: Jeff's Stereo Den

  1. #1

    Jeff's Stereo Den

    I've been lurking around this forum long enough, its about time I posted my system. A few years ago I took over the garage, broke out all of the drywall and installed sound board and QuiteRock dry wall. Dedicated lines, grounding and a very quite AC system rounded out the modifications to the garage. My primary focus is on the record collection, with over 5,000 records sorted by name and genre. If I have over 3 records from a specific musician, they get their own section. The system is based around Lamm electronics, as Lamm has consistently delivered my favorite sound at CES and home auditions from fellow audiophiles. A few pics:

    My new turntable is the Acoustic Signature Ascona with the venerable SME 3012R arm. I have several arms over the years and only the SME 3012R can deliver the flexibility, easy set up, musicality and zero tracking error that I'm looking for:


    I've enjoyed collecting different cartridges and having fun with some of the older MM's with the modern Jico SAS stylus. My current cartridge selection: Air Tight PC-7, ZU Denon 103, Shure V15 III, A&R P77 and Signet 7EA.

    On the rack we have a Sonorus P77 reel to reel from Arian Janson, Lamm LL2.1 Deluxe, Lamm LP2.1 Deluxe Sansui 717 Tuner and Lamm M2.2 monos.

    The speakers are Quintessence Stealth VI. These are the same speakers reviewed by AVS:

    The monitors run full range and the ribbon takes over around 12K. Power subwoofers with an EQ run sub 200 hz.
