A system for a small one-bedroom apartment:



Furman Elite-15 PFI
Teddy Pardo 19/3 Linear PSU
Intel NUC with Ubuntu 18.04 & Roon Server
Mojo Audio Mystique V2 SE DAC
Pass Labs HPA-1 headphone preamp
First Watt SIT-3 amplifier
Omega Super Alnico High Output Monitors
Audio rack & speaker stands built by me

A work in progress but it's nice to finally have everything in place to start configuring, improving & tweaking. It was getting old having everything sitting on top of the boxes it shipped in and using bar stools to block me from doing something stupid like tripping over a speaker cable & ripping out a binding post.  :)

Very nice and tastefully done.  I love the way the different lamps and the different figures in the painting break up the symmetry of the setup.  There must be some artist in you.

Wow, a lot of elegant setups on this thread! Great looking stuff. I'm sure it sounds great too.

I appreciate the compliment but I'm afraid you're giving me way too much credit.  :)

Whenever I go on vacation, I always gravitate towards art museums because I'm impressed by people who have a talent that I lack (think poorly executed stick figures).

The lamps are by Isama Noguchi and have been handmade in Gifu, Japan since 1951. I really like them a lot. He's actually more famous for the coffee table he designed and people are more familiar with it. I stumbled across one of his sculptures while wandering around the Crystal Bridges museum last year. They're sitting on a pair of tables by Grete Jalk.

I really liked the painting because it reminded me of our family farm in Kentwood, Louisiana that I used to run around on when I was a kid. A solitary farmhouse, fields, pecan trees and a fishing pond. It's a painting by Galya Popova of her family's dacha outside of Moscow. Opposite side of the planet but a lot of similarities that I could identify with. I like listening to tunes & looking at it. A big glass of red wine doesn't hurt.

This is my current system. New room and bigger than my previous one allowing for a larger spread for my SAMs, close to a 10' spread. Newly installed Dynavector DV20XL yielding greater detail and resolution over my previous Soundsmith Carmen. The addition of 2 GIK panels, courtesy of a local buddy, elevated my enjoyment of this system even more.

Sweet!   :thumb:

I've enjoyed this setup a few times -- sounds even better than it looks.  See my recent comments on it here (Reply #5):

Are you still selling the SAMs?  I just sold my pair (I'm local to you - 11746) not because I didn't love the sound but because they were too big for the space I wanted to use them in.  I'm currently without an alnico Omega (I do have pairs of Super 3 and Super 3HO monitors), though I will likely go for a CAM at a later point.

Although the ad is still up, the SAMs are not going anywhere. This is by far, the most enjoyable system I have ever owned. Natural and involving!

Made some recent upgrades to my power and added footers beneath the SAM and DAC

Changed the wall receptacle from standard UK to Furutech GTX-D Rhodium US, and added an Uptone JS-2 to power the SoTM SMS-200 and Chord Qutest
Also got meself a Plixir power conditioner

Effect was a blacker background with improved dimensionality and depth
