Chicago Members?
« on: 4 Jan 2020, 06:15 pm »
Hello!

There was an old post, but I thought I would start a new one...

Any Chicagoland or SE Wisconsin members out there?

Regards, CHRIS

Hi Bob!

I ended up being a tube guy after many years with solid state gear:

Linn, Roon & Nucleus, Jay's Audio Transport, Conrad Johnson, Audio Note Kit DAC, VAC power amp. I am using Falcon Acoustics LS3/5a speakers most of the time..

How about yourself?

Hi Chris (and Bob),

Brand new member but also out of Chicago!

Right now I'm running Martin Logan Aeon i's through ciaudio d100's, along side a Decent sub and Theater i center. Bit of a hodpodge system (even though it is all Martin Logan). However, I came to looking to upgrade pretty much everything.

https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=175659.0 is the topic that actually brought me to the site - Hoping to grab it as my digital source (but I get it, i do have to prove i'm a real person first lol. I want to run it & my turntable into a passive controller, then out to a pair of d500 MKII from Ci Audio and into Martin Logan Renaissance or Expressions, depending on how much $$ I have left. Should be able to get it all together by the end of the year so I'm excited.

I'm in Wauconda. 
 I switched over to Pass Labs after many years of tubes.

Hello All!

I am up near Lake Geneva - and I am not a cheese head...

I was all tubes and now find myself liking some of the solid state gear that I put back into my system.  I put it back in to check in order to start selling it , and now I like that sound...

Bill - why did you decide to leave tubes?

Regards, CHRIS

Hi Chris,

  I retired from being Eastern Electric distributor and my hearing isn't what it use to be.

Just didn't want the hassle of tracking down any noise or tube rush as I hit 67 and after auditioning the Pass Labs gear
 
with low noise floor but the sonic beauty of the X250.8 with a XP22 preamp was the ticket for me.

I'm in Arlington Heights - hello Mt. Prospect neighbor!

Right now I'm running 90's "golden era" digital front end (SF SFT-1 transport >> Wadia 15) to an Audio Research LS-27II to a First Watt SIT-3 played through Zu Soul Supremes.

I feel like I'm at the peak of sound in my system right now.  How long will it last ?
