    Been too busy listening and haven't posted updates! LOL

    Removed the Yamaha tuner and in its place a brand new dbx Venu360 and completely bypassed the passive crossovers in the ML SL3's. HUGE improvements! Also running the JL sub through the dbx.

    Set up a second system in the sun room. Eclipse TD-M1 powered speakers, Energy Encore 8 subwoofer with a passive crossover to the mains, and a Bluesound Node. The sound is pretty amazing.

    The TV stuff isn't hooked up to the sound stuff yet. Still working out the best way to do that.

    Great seeing the Model Six's being used in a bookshelf configuration. Have you been able to refurbish them as of yet?

    If the TV has a digital output, get an external DAC. If it has an analog output, just hook that into an input in the speakers (might need to get a RCA switch). If it has analog and digital, using an external DAC is best. Be sure your TV is set to PCM in the menu settings because DACs often can't handle Dolby Digital/DTS surround input.

    Yeah. It's actually harder than that. It's a real weak spot that the TD-M1s aren't really designed to work with a subwoofer. To make all this work as it is, I'm using the Node as a source and preamp. The Node passes analog output to a passive crossover to feed the sub and TD-M1s' analog input. The TD-M1's wireless capabilities are completely ignored. It's being used as a power amp and speakers only. Any solution that directly feeds the TD-M1s loses the subwoofer, which is suboptimal. The Node, on the other hand, doesn't have any real inputs. I think the only real option here would be to buy a real preamp. Not sure I want to do that.

    Since I need to replace the 7591's in the Fisher KX-200, I placed in the Tube Room System my HH Scott 299-C. This was a total restore about 5 years ago. It also sounds very nice in the current Tube Room system only connected Scott to Mac MR-78 tuner first time playing the Kappa 7.1 series 2 speakers, hope to place Scott in full system later this weekend DSCN0010.JPG

    Got rid of some junk, moved some more around and now I have space for a third system. Got some stuff out of storage for this setup. Surprised this little Emotiva mini-x a100 can drive the Magnepan MG12s so well. The sub is yet another Energy Encore 8.

    Could not sleep so I got up about an hour early and played current Tube room system. Sounds nice maybe KX-200 is better, hard to say as comparing units is tough, Fisher has a very good set of Tele. 12AX7 installed but 7591 outputs are a little crispy but test good in my matcher. Scott 299-C has matched quad of low hour 7591 outputs but the other tubes are a mixed bag of makers and of course the amps use different tubes types. Played Gold CD of Ziggy stardust and vinyl copy Peter Paul and Mary Moving LP so I can hear Puff in this set up I liked both very much. DSCN0020.JPG DSCN0019.JPG DSCN0022.JPG
