The Master Suite, a Two-channel Audio System by JakeJ

Master BR System
Room Size
12' w X 15' l X 7.5' h
System Overview
A system I put together just because I have the gear to do it. Centered around a pair of Bamberg Audio prototypes fed by a Proceed HPA-2 dual mono amp (beast!) driven by an Audible Illusions M3B and sourced by a Pioneer F-91 tuner or my iPhone/iFi iDSD combo. Need to rearrange this setup as the speaker placement blocks drawer access of the dressers.
Music Preferences
Everything from Mozart to Zappa. My musical tastes are eclectic to be sure. That's eclectic [b]not[/b] eccentric, there's a difference, look it up. :thumb:
Room Description
Small master bedroom with a big master bath.
Acoustic Treatment
None.
Listening Impressions
Sounds good. Not much soundstage unless listening nearfield, however the Bambergs sound best mid or farfield to me. They surprise in the bass and have all the detail and resolution in the mids and treble. Very happy with this new secondary system! I feel the need to finally add a TV to my bedroom.
Media Storage
None.
Components
Digital Source
iPhone and iFi iDSD DAC.
Analog Source
Pioneer F-91 tuner.
Other Sources
None at this time.
Preamp
Audible Illusions M3B with MM phono. This is a Galen Carol steal; it's a new M3B motherboard installed in an old M3A chassis with the older power supply. Also this has a silver faceplate which I like much better than the black.
Power Amp
Proceed HPA-2 dual mono amp. Just a really sweet SS amp designed by Mark Levinson/Madrigal Labs.
Speakers
These are a prototype that were built during the design phase of the new Series 3 TMW. They sing with the Proceed!
Subwoofer
None. The Bambergs load this room very well, not sure that I'll need a sub.
