Very nice
 
Did you buy the silent NUC all done or a bit of a DIY kit?


It was DIY - got the case imported from Germany - looks & performs fantastic and has never run too hot

After building my third headphone amp in a row and spending somewhere around 100 hours on phones recently it’s nice to be back on the system. Still on CDs. It was only meant to last a week (CD week) but enjoying it so much I’m continuing on.  It could end up CD month.

Cables are hidden so come out from the cabinet behind the speakers which are sitting on Lenehan Tune Stands. The Digione is awesome - been running it using volumio but have just ordered a Pi3 to run Ropiee on it wirelessly as I can’t get either of my USB NIC’s to work with it. I would stick with Volumio but it does have to be rebooted now & then.

Equipment rundown-

Source: Naim CD5X/TeddyCap psu.

Preamp: Sonic Frontiers SFL-1. 

Amp: Cymer KT88 Pentode 50W

Speakers: Ascension Monitor 823 TL

Speaker stands: Tauris SP-121

Speaker cable: VdH CS-122

Interconnects: Audio Principe silver teflon rca

Power cable etc: Audio Principe Signature into a PS Audio Dectet feed by a dedicated line.   

Audio rack: ExtremA CS-14

Naim cdp sits on BDR MK3 cones and has 2 Herbies Audiolab Toppers to damp out a resonance zone in the middle of the lid.

I'm happy with the sound quality. The Naim cdp was purchased from @PKay a few years back and continues to impress, the TeddyCap plays it's part too.

The SFL-1 is the most recent addition. I felt the need for a little more precision and speed, it has been a great find. Thanks to @audiodynafor not one but two trips over to my place for demos in my system. 

So I'm very happy with what I have, an engaging and relatively inexpensive, low maintenance system. I've burnt a fair few dollars experimenting and experiencing along the way (sound familiar, anyone?).

I still want to tick off single ended amplification and horns at some point although not necessarily at the same time. And maybe own a X series Pass Labs amp. 

The best thing is the passionate audio people I've met along the way, I don't even know what some of you look like but I know I like youse! So thanks to everyone that's helped me, including the people who have bought gear I've needed to liquidate to move on to the next side/up/down/arse about face/grade. 

 

 

 NIce looking speakers , and rest of system
