Room Size
Ground up build. Dimensions are 7m (W)x 11m (L)x 3m (H)
System Overview
This is our showcase system at present and while offers have been made to purchase many of the components in it, I could never bear to part with any of them opting to sell customers indent units instead. My wife doesn't know this so....shhhhhhh. Call it a perk of being an audio distributor. We get to have "permanent" demo equipment.

Listening Impressions
This is a system that does not need to be played loud but can play insanely loud if I'm feeling particularly stupid. Easily gets to dance club levels without distortion. Under normal use, everything adds up to a presentation that is effortless in that the system is devoid of any strain owing to all the headroom available along with the very low noise floor. From tonally neutral to lush depending on recording, tubes used, cartridges used and loudspeaker settings selected.
Media Storage
Adjacent room. 3k CD Capacity, 3000 LP capacity
