  • Nice to be here! Thanks Myles..

    for the invite. This is great timing as I just moved my system into it's new sound room downstairs,which is really nice to have. Maybe this will motivate me to get back into having conversations about a hobby that I have loved since my teen years.

    You have done a real nice job with your web site Myles...I like it...

    Here's a quick photo of my setup...which the equipment hasn't changed in about 20 years or so. I have had this basic system iin four different rooms and it always has been a joy to listen to. A very short synopsis about the system is 5000 watts,50 inches of sub woofer, one pair of satellite main speakers and 2 pair of psycho acoustic speakers. The "psycho" speakers correct the time delay. One pair is mounted outboard of the satellites up on the back wall and the other pair is positioned center on the window sills.

        Hi Mark, With you, rbbert and Myles here it's like home already. Mark it looks like your system is set and I bet it sounds great too. Your SP-10 is to die for...

        robert...yes we should hook up......

        I'm really excited about the new room. The system can finally breathe....

          There are some very nice tape machines on this forum: A820s,A80s ATR 102s,even the odd Stella TD9. State of the art aftermarket audio electronics too. Then the MR70 arrives.Bit like showing at Cars in the Park and then the Ferrari 250 GTO quietly enters through the back gate.

          Sure there are better handling machines,certainly more reliable ones and maybe,just maybe, one that can sound better on a good day but none can ever be as iconic as Ampex's flat-out assault on the late 60s state of the art.

              JDZA as I have said many times,what makes the MR70 unique is it's nuvistor electronics and if you upgrade the electronics like I have then it becomes truly spectacular.

              Imagine a device that has all the great qualities of solid state and tubes with a noise floor that is uncanny. The result is a musicality that begs to be heard.

                Roger, you don't have any issues with nuvistors going noisy prematurely?

              I must say the system keeps getting better. Typically the NBS cables require about 100 hours to come up,about now. The system is the best I have ever heard it,Amazing clarity,imaging,musicality and a knock your socks off midrange,and with tight bass that has that slam too. The kind of power and weight I dream about and that scary blackness that literally makes you jump. I know it sounds to good to be true.

              This time I wired the electrical using 10-3 wire....I think it really helped.

                            If I would have had the capitol, I would have one of the other pairs of those Platinum amps and their preamp. I have a Paracas Sierra Preamp (great sounding preamp) which I used in my system for many years. I also have a couple of Paracas power "conditioners" which still work. Selfishly, I wish Carl hadn't found happiness in coffee roasting - truly a very talented audio designer.
