hey all it's been a crazy journey for me past year or so, going through the buy/sell/trade/upgrade fever has been fun, but I finally landed a system I am flat out impressed by less than a year ago I was in a cramped NYC apartment where my hobby was extremely restrained haha after some changes with the job and commute I'm now on long island where I can afford a much larger space including a unfinished basement after going through martin logan ESLs, infinity Kappa 6.1s, b&w cm9 s2, psb 6T, paradigm monitor 11se and endless gear by sumo, marantz, rotel, lexicon, b&k, crown, nakamichi, sansui I ended up where I am now. please excuse the wire mess, its a wild arrangement in attempt to stop any signal cables crossing power cables. Building a new gear rack/tv mount this weekend room will eventually be acoustically treated although its not nearly as bad as I thought as far as standing waves and reflection gear- NHT 3.3 Hafler transnova p7000 350wrms MOSFET class AB @ 8ohm Integra Research RDC 7.1 pre/pro source- PC lossless via nuforce ASYNC USB to SPDIF, then van den hul digital coax to the integra that has dual differential burr brown dacs with apogee master clock for front channels running full balanced interconnects with mogami star quad 2534- amazing XLR cables and are insane for the price speaker cable is van den hul MC magnum hybrid The hafler seems to have unending clean power.. and the NHT play ridiculously loud and deep because of proximity to the panel I was able to run 2 dedicated lines with hubbel green dot duplex, one for my panamax power conditioner that feeds my pre/ power amp on isolated banks, and one for my TV/PC I am finally satisfied with my system, It really is killer compared to gear I've had in the past and systems I've heard double the price. Next upgrade will be either getting another p7000 to do monoblocks or buying a bryston 4b. anyone in the used market for floorstanders 1500-2500, granted you have the space I believe the NHT 3.3 is the best speaker you will ever get, performance is astonishing and is extremely neutral with an impressive freq resp that only drops off below like 24hz, I have a very large room and no longer need a subwoofer.
