    Peter yes it does, I knew I had seen something similar to that before. SPOCKs looks like it is made much better so it might be something else.

    Thanks Peter,
    Im suspect of course, but i think it really plays well. Im always trying to improve the performance and some strengths of the system are hard to find at any price. Strings are very, very fine, and cymbals sound like they should: metal against metal (*). To be perfect, it need a little more groove, a little more density in the middle band.

    When I have a good camera like yours, I promise you a video!

    (*) In the last years I notice that some audiophiles are looking for a not aggressive sound and they throw way the baby with the water of the bath. The highs are often so soft, that one must almost do an effort to discovery or to imagine they are there. In most extreme cases what I find is a dark and uninteresting sound.

    The rack, as some more furniture in the house, is a design of mine.
    If it was now, Ill do it a little different. At the time I do not suspected how important is the air around the equipments. Can you imagine the CD player, plays much better in the top of the rack? Unfortunately, to be in that place, I will need a longer interconnect.
    The rack its very heavy, but to control the vibrations, I use under each equipment two rocks of granite, upon a rubber granulated.

    Yes they have. But I think to get a big soundstage is very important a free space around and between the loudspeakers.
