Naim UnitiLite [TidalHiFi/iMac], AppleTV, Thorens TD160B MkII w/Linn Basik/AT95e, Lehmann Black Cube Statement, B&W Matrix 805's, Audio Sensibility Cables, Herbie Fat Dots. All hard wired.

My Phono Preamp & Apple TV are velcrowed (Industrial Grade) to the underside of the shelf behind the dentil moulding fascia. [no groans please (-: ]


Very nice and tidy, although you are right, the shelf is a bit ornate relative to the rest of the setup.
Any thought on adding a sub?

HaHa

I was referring to the velcro holding my Apple TV & phono preamp in place!! The shelf took about 3 hours of hard work to build (-:

As for the sub, I'm not sure. I know the benefits but like to keep things simple. I am considering updating my speakers and may go small floor standing. I think I can add an Naim amp to the Unitilite if need be.

Nice clean setup ScanSpeak!
Just having those speakers on stands could make enough of a difference, that you wouldn't have to rush out and get floorstanders. Probably better for your vinyl playback too!
Btw, think the shelf is a cool idea.

Agreed. Would love to hear that set up. Had some Jadis before (JP15 and the Orchestra) and it sounded marvelous. These must be liquid cool! Especially with the Wilson's. Congrats Jeff.

My dedicated 2 channel soundroom in a new home now finally possible after 40 years. 9.5 foot ceilings with a live end, dead end setup makes accoustics great for all types of music.
System is 2 x Bryston 4bsst2's, Mcintosh c47, Mcintosh MPV 871 Disc player, Mcintosh MT-5 turntable, Sony HAPZ1-ES media server, Martin Logan Descent i subwoofer and Wilson Sophia 3 speakers, all held together with Transparent Audio cables and Fantasy In Glass cable lifters.

Thanks for the encouragement, Fellas!
I am pretty satisfied with the results so far...
Only complaint being all recordings are not equal which Im sure everyone on here with a TT can complain about.
Cheers!

Here's my 2 channel system. My first hifi speakers was a Magnepan MG1i and now after 25 years and many speakers later, I am back to MG1.7.
My system consist of LM-219, PWD2 direct to amp (bypassing the LM-219 preamp section), Bryston bdp-1, Audirvana on my iMac with Tidal, and SVS SB-16 Ultra.ImageImage
