Bill,
Unfortunately we have both met the kind,
But don't worry to much,
the majority of readers at this forum
dislike the attitude of those ones.
They do not only spoil the fun for the rest of us,
their remarks probably makes themselves feel awful inside.

Modified Oracle delphi, Slate base, diy power supply, cones.
Rewired Rega RB300 arm with same cable (discovery) from cartridge to phono
ADEQ (ben duncan)phono amp sits underneath the base eliminating the need for 1/2 metre of arm cable.
Kiseki blue cartridge.

Pioneer cd transport with Trichord clock and battery power supply
Deltec PDm2 dac.

Diy passive with dual stepped attenuators. ( only 13x 2db steps, but in practise 26 db is plenty of range)

Kelvin labs 60 watt Class A monoblock power amps ( to be Aleph 2's sooner or later)

Apogee Stage speakers.

Low capacitance i/connect, very short (1/2 metre) VDH speaker cables (biwire)

Sounds very good, needs a bigger room to do justice to the Stage's low end but my wife won't give up the lounge.

Jules

Thumbs up Jules

PRECISELY!
That makes a simple stepper be a very WISE choice.
(As I have described in another thread,
use of CMOS up/down counter and Analog Multiplexer,
with remote control)

With 11 steps you come a long way.
For precise messuring purposes it can be different,
but I neither have the time or desire to messure
every song I enjoy.

Default 4 Koss for L/R

Dave you are correct, I prefer the BW302 to those Koss.
What I used to do was to the Mirage 490is connected to both the Rotel and the JLH all the time for using it as the main L/R in the 5.1 setup as well as for the JLH 1996 as 2 channel only, and I think that was kind of dangerous. But I have not enough savings for another set of half decent speakers for the front and actually space to put them, the Koss can just sit on the top of the TV for now, if I switch the BW302 as the front I have no place to put them... until I have a better solution then the Koss will be moved to my daughter's room or basement background music when I am soldering.

Chris

P.S. I've forgotten to mention that I have D-Box david300 and JBL 8" 150watt subwoofers for the home theatre in my last post

Well, since it was asked, I guess I'll describe my system. Nothing, zippo, it's all gone. I got rid of everything and am slowly rebuilding the hole thing. It's all comming along nicely, only thing not started is the sub (haven't decided what to go with yet, I'll do that when everything else is finished). Here's what' being built...

speakers: bi-amped vifa P17WJ-00-08s and BG ribbons

crossover: 24dB/octave linkwitz-reily discrete crossover

amps: power follower 99c's driver by tube voltage gain stages (for both the highs and the lows).

Haven't heard it yet, but shouldn't be too long before it's done. Oh, and I don't care if it doesn't live up to some of your standards, it's fun to build .

This meets my standard.
In fact, anything that makes you feel good does.

Best Wishes
Happy New Year

Audax 12" aerogel powered-sub (designed by Joe D'Appolito), Audax bookshelf rears (designed by Vance Dickason), my own design for fronts and center (a 5" Focal polyglass woofer and a Vifa silk tweeter). I'm using my Toshiba DVD for CD's but I'm going to start desgining a DAC that will connect to it with a Toslink. Amplifier is 5 channel Harman-Kardon, but I have one shelf cleared for a McIntosh amp (someday)!
