Showing you my Golden Cherries in a Cherry finish. As the jar says, it's the finishing touch. Actually it's the main ingredient!

Nice set up! Is that a Freya+ I see?

And those speakers are simply beautiful! I bet that Cherry really makes them sing.

Can't believe this is what it used to look like. I didn't even have blinds or curtain rods then.

Avsfan , what speakers ?

I was running both the B&W 606 S2 Anniversary Editions and my beloved Quad S2's. Was doing a little speaker shootout and the Quads won hands down. The B&W's are on their way back to Crutchfield and a second pair of Quad S2's are on their way for my living room system. That says a lot about the Quads. I have been auditioning other bookshelves over the past couple of months just to see if I wanted something different in the living room. Well..... I don't, I like the sound of these so much that I want them in that system too. I also have a pair of Dirty Weekends on order too, so these pictures will be updated once those are in.

It's only your second post, it took me awhile to learn the AC system. Looking forward to seeing your system.

Do the ILM Kings require 1 60V pwr supply or 2? Or is it a different 60V supply from the STM version?
Title: Re: Show us your Cherry
Post by: Nsm1979 on 1 Feb 2021, 04:16 am
My Inline Maraschino amps and 60v power supply are an earlier model version than what Tommy is offering now.  I believe the 60v power supply now comes in two separate housings.  I suspect the specs are the same.  Perhaps Tommy will comment on this for clarification.

Will fix the pics above (prev page).  At the time they were posted, photos weren’t showing up site-wide:
https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=174663.0

Had to make an additional album and re-orient the photos in the album before re-posting them.  Otherwise, the orientation gets all messed up.

The STM uses one power supply for both channels.  Maraschino Monoblocks (DTM, GCM, ILM) have one supply per channel.

We did make a power supply with dual outputs at first.  This was for powering two monoblocks with one power supply, but haven't made them like that for several years now.

That clears up my confusion - thank you.

All Maraschino Monoblocks (ILM, DTM, GCM) now have one power supply per channel.  Way back, we had a two-output 60V power supply, but we stopped making those several years ago.  The same 60V power supply is used for KING STM as KING ILM, KING DTM, and GCM.  Many KING STMs also have the optional 12VDC jack for powering a DAC DAC.  This facilitates the "Cherry stack" (see photo).

Cherry Acronyms:
ILM = In-Line Maraschino (monoblock)
DTM = Desktop Maraschino (monoblock)
GCM = Golden Cherry Maraschino (top of the line Desktop Maraschino)
STM = Stereo Maraschino (2-channel)
x-CHerry = 2-to-5-channel amp series using Maraschino Monoblock boards
