Living room: AudioQuest Black Mamba 8M IC's from family room preamp to Barcus-Berry 2002R Sonic Maximizer to GlowPower Zyxt IC's to Sunfire 300x2 to Nordost 6M bi-source wires to AOS 28" MDF spherical speakers using six 8" woofers and eight 1" dome tweeters symm. arranged around the surface.
SS system: CX-995V DVD to AV-705x 5 channel amp (center/rears) & M1.0t mk-II opt2(fronts).

In 2004&2008 copies of Stereophile magazine, JGordon Holt complained
that when Stereophile and other magazines like it ignored scientific procedure, their conclusions and brand of journalism became laughable. Bob Carver and his amplifier challenge, proved Holt's claim.

Measurements keep everyone honest about the viability of the products manufacturers retail to the buying public and helps perspective buyers to narrow the field when in the search for that new bit of gear.

Sometimes I just have music going when I'm working, other times I like a serious listen. You can be several different types of listener, each having its rewards.
