Simple experimental system:
SBT > Cherry DAC DAC 1 HS > Cherry MEGA MK2 Monoblocks > Magnepan 1.7i

< no preamp ! >

MEGA Snake speaker cables (9-gauge eq), pretty old Mojo (10-gauge) power cords — separate outlets, only for the Amps.  “Generic” Take Five XLR cables.

Results so far are AMAZING !!

I'm liking what I see! My system will be even simpler. As you already know! Magnepan LRS's, DAC Maraschino, DAC DAC HS1, Denon SACD player and Yamaha Music Streamer. I will be adding a pre-amp in the future and a pair of subs but that's pretty much it.

But yeah, those 1.7's with the Mega Mono MK2's  I bet sounds spectacular! It looks nice!

Nice room. Those Cherry mono amps has my interest. I bet your room sounds amazing!
I like your panels on the wall and the small corner ones. Are these something you made?



Thanks

MEGA MK2 specs are identical to those shown here, except 1W THD+N is now 0.001% (was 0.005%):
