    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

Welcome.

I'm amazed by the number of audiophiles we have from all over the world.

Not sure about the links policy here?
Correct me if I shouldn't post externals, but here are photos of my project: http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/Discovery-12W_Ilia.htm

They are small Troels Gravesen desktop monitor speakers.
I love them, sound very nice to my ears.

My current setup is mainly desktop:

- these DIY Discovery-12W speakers
- powered by a pair of Nord One SE NC500 mono blocks (oooooverkillll)
- with RME ADI-2 DAC being my main source (Tidal, High-Res downloads)
- a cheap AIYIMA Tube-A3 preamp (with nicely rolled tubes though) to add some natural tube distortion
- Audeze LCD-X headphones for evening/night listening

My plans are to upgrade the preamp to a decent one (tubes, balanced, 1-2K used, advices appretiated!)
and build a new pair of floorstanding speakers (looking at GR Research currently, not decided yet)..

I also currently negotiate with my wife on the livingroom treatment I want to do (moving hard!..)

Thank you guys for the warm words and the hospitality,
wasn't really expecting that!

Thanks!
