one addition to the system - plenty of time to enjoy during lockdown.      

My current system!         Recorded handheld on my iphone with inbuilt microphone...so take it with a big dose of salt.

Cool looking amp or is it a tube preamp?

Not with OPTs. I think a 6080/6AS7 based integrated amp.

I've cleaned up my NS1000 Ebony speakers with Howard's orange oil, not only improved looks but also gave it a nice smell 😉

Took my main speakers to my mates to do some measurements for the additional azurahorn last nite.

Using my son's 3 inch temporary atm, sounds amazing, would be better if they sit on stands...20201018_102434.thumb.jpg.681cd2b519d26ac7537a9f71a00b958d.jpg 

What are those speakers? Are they a fonken variant? Interested....

McIntosh 240  in action 

 

I'm still not able to setup my system properly after moving to Adelaide.

 

Didn't even switch on any of my units for about last 7-8 months as got busy at work plus tiny new accommodation where I have got no space to set the system properly.  Anyway I decided to start listening to music again and enjoy it as it is...No external DAC, Its just spotify connected directly from my laptop to MC240 using a crappy 3.5mm to RCA bunnings cable  :)

So did they come like that? Or did you remove all the surrounding packaging?

Exactly how they come.

They are bolted to the bottom skip to keep secure.

That is really hardcore, I am not going to try that level but reserve fund for upgrading my power cords instead,

 

my Haloween pumpkins are mostly for my kid but they look creepy when I turned off lights in listening room and they look really good with hifi gears

A quick snap from a visit to a dear friends. He has some seriously good sound going on currently I can tell you!

Wonder if your friend will sell the stand mount speaker ( Harbeth 40.1 ? ) I’m looking for Spendor sp100 or Harbeth 40.1 . Can you ask him

No name drivers in sealed Sony cabinets with Sony xovers.

Suprisingly good sound...  Mids are a delight...  Highs have level control set to normal...  Not sure if I'll port them, but will definitely test it out.

Listening to Georg Riedel "Jazz at the Pawnshop"...   Nice.

Loving the 6CA7 in lieu of EL34.

Tube rolling 16 power tubes at a a time, is proving to be a costly business😬

at least you won't need a heater in winter

I guess that is one plus for me who mainly builds single end tube power amps.

@The Fresh Prince what is it about the 6CA7 that you like in comparison to the EL34, i have gone from a 6L6GC to the 6CA7, only truely appreciated the difference when i put the 6L6GC back in, very briefly, i was advised that the 6CA7 was a good compromise between the 6L6GC and EL34, will eventually try EL34's, luckily i only have two power tubes

@wen To be honest the EL34s in my set up sounded very good, but on some tracks it sounded a little lifeless and lacking low end punch. Depending on musical taste I could have been quite happy with the EL34s and the tonality/timbre of music with them.

I tried KT150s, but they were horrible IMO. Tonally, very inaccurate and congested.

The 6CA7s have brought the Magicos to life. The top end is probably a little more strident and the bass region is exceptionally defined and punchy. Tonality is still there. If I were a jazz/female voices freak- I think I would have kept the EL34s, but for my taste the 6CA7s seem better.

Wow they look amazing and I can only imagine what they sound like.

If you turn them up loud enough do lightning bolts shoot from one to the other?

Im sure theres enough power produced from your sexy ML amps to do it.:)
