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.
