Hey guys,

Subject line pretty much says it all.

I currently have a 36.5/KWA-150SE combo hooked up to a pair of Dennis Murphy’s Philharmonic 3’s. I love the combo. My room is only about 12.5’x16.5’ and no sub nessessary.

I am just thinking about what the future might hold and I feel like now my electronics can probably accommodate and compliment some pretty nice stuff. It made me curious what other people with Modwright equipment are running.

Hey Woody,

I have a full blown modded Modwright 5400 Signature Truth with Audio Magic Pulse Gen ZX and Bybees on the rails, along with Star Sounds trans mod using 3 flat (.2") Audio Points between the trans and the chassis--the SS mod is equal in sound improvement as the other 2 together.  I don't have any other Modwright gear, but am using a TRL DUDE and a TDSS Level 3 modded Nuforce Ref 9 SE V3 mono amps to drive my VMPS RM40 BCSE MLS speakers.  The combo is extremely revealing, yet wonderfully organic, dynamic and I love the sound in all ways.  The only real drawback to the RM40s is you need to be seated to hear them at their best--some highs are lost by standing.  All my components sit on Sistrum racks and the speaker are on Sistrum SP-101 platforms.  Everything is held down by RTS couplers from Audio Horizons.  The racks and platforms, along with the couplers each made a very significant difference in transparency, dynamics, detail, bass clarity.  I have an analog set-up also with a heavily modded Lenco TT, Trans-Fi Terminator arm, Benz Micro Ruby 3, and Whest 3.0 RDT SE phono preamp.  The speakers were the first piece to my sound puzzle and the rest has evolved to this point.  Wires are Teo GC ICs, JW Reference IC, Core Power Technologies Equi=Core 150 & 300 PCs, Dynamic Design Spirit II PC, Mojo Enigma PC, WyWires Juice II PCs, and Cerious Technologies Graphene Extreme SCs & jumpers.  Many of the wires were the last piece of the puzzle and helped to really bring the sound to even more organic, dynamic and very live.

Should also say that prior to the Daedalus I had the Modwright gear married up with JM Reynaud Offrande Supreme V2s .  Very pleased with either speaker with the Modwrights (LS100; KWA100SE, Elyse Dac)

Woud love to have Daedalus speakers too.
Met Lou at his facility a couple of years ago, fantastic guy and great product.
But the Canadian dollar dropped in value shortly thereafter making them too expensive.
I’m using Amphion Argon 3LS and still have my KEF 104.2’s

Hmm. The Amphion’s look really interesting. I’d love to hear them.

Daedalus seem to be a popular choice. I'll have to look into them more closely.

Like I said... I'm quite happy with my current setup. But I can't help thinking about the possible future.

Well, they are geographically and philosophically close, and when you look at photos on the Modwright site Daedalus figures prominentlty

They're not just geographically close. They also work together on product development and have magical system synergy as a result. Modwright electronics and Daedalus speakers are truly meant for each other.

I have a pair of Vandersteen Treos with a pair of Vandersteen 2WQ powered subwoofers.  I have a Modwright LS 100 and a KWA 150 SE.  The latter is brand new to me, and so far so am loving the symmetry between the speakers and these amplifiers.  Spectacular!
