Nice clean set up, what shelf unit are you using for your vinyl? I need a nice strong one, as right now my records are in cardboard boxes :shock: lost the milk crates long ago when vinyl was "dead" :roll:

Hi George. Thanks very much for the compliment. I think I bought my house just so I could put my stereo in a better place. Haha. Like George Carlin's "A Place For My Stuff". Though it's not quite up to some other's super house's out there. Just a simple, semi detatched, downtown Toronto house. However, I did have the luxury of having the internal electrical updated, and the floor and ceiling "soundproofed" with resilient channel, and Roxul safe and sound insulation. My error though was having the 20 amp dedicated circuit put in a different location thinking I'd put the system on another wall. However, with battery powered amps and pre-amps, it's hardly any different! ;)
As was said, the case is from Ikea. Expedit. Fits vinyl perfectly and you can get different config's for it to suit your space.

Cheers!

NAD C165BEE pre amp
NAD C275BEE amp x 2 running bridged
NAD C565BEE cd transport
NAD C425 tuner
NAD IPD 2 Dock for the iPod when I'm lazy
180 gig ipod classic
Paradigm Studio 100 v2s
DIY speaker cables
Unity Audio power cords

Going to add a Technics 1200 mkII turntable in black as soon as Don decides to sell his to me. :lol:


Edit: Added the mkII, thanks Don, a Paradigm SE Sub, thanks Lex, and swapped out the NAD IPD 2 Dock for an Arcam irDock.
Currently using an Ortofon 2m Blue but I have picked up a 2m Black.
I am using the onboard phono stage on the pre amp and am happy with that...for now.
New pic to follow.

Not a very good pic, sorry.


Nothing wrong with your picture, you're not a photographer, you're an audiophile.
