System Overview
2 channel system design for musical enjoyment. The aim is for accuracy, but musicality. The core of the system is Audio Circle vendors, the Response Audio Purity One tube pre-amp, Odyssey Audio Khartago mono amps, and Salk Sound HT1 speakers. Musical tastes are mostly jazz in its many forms. The North Star M192 DAC/Transport was chosen to allow CD and computer based audio. For analog, I picked up a Thorens TD-125 MKII with SME 3009 S2 improved tonearm.
