    Dude. This is one of the finest rigs/rooms on this forum. You should be very proud of yourself. One day (and I am not inviting myself but laying down a seed), I would love to meet you and put my ears on this rig.
    Job well done broskizzle. Well done!

    Absolutely beautiful room...but how do you change the record without getting footprints on the carpet? ;)

    What kind of rack is that by the way?

    Got up early and did some much needed wire management. It isn’t perfect as I have my Fono off to the side as it gets extremely noisy in the rack (still very noisy off to the side like this). But it’s a million times better than it was wiring wise

    Made a new Rack to combine two into one and moved gear to the side of the room. This cleaned up the center image more than I expected B)

    How did I miss your new arrangement. You know i have always loved your room and setup.

    Magnificent! You have a way of doing things right!

    I'll save the new picture next to the old one in my photos.

    Nicely done! It's like a Salamander Archetype rack on steroids :) Might need some proper feet, though.

    Doing a demo of this amp by some guy name Pass.

    I also see a Lumin file player, and a Shunyata power conditioner, along with the Pass. Good job.
    Lumin X1 file player; Sony XA-5400ES SACD; Pass XP-22 pre; X600.5 amps
    Magico S5 MKII Mcast Rose speakers; SPOD spikes

    Mapleshade Samson V.3 four shelf solid maple rack, Micropoint brass footers
    Three 20 amp circuits.
  • Ha, yes. Good reminder to update the signature. Looks like I have a couple of the younger siblings of gear in your rig. I'm sure it sounds amazing! Looks like I should read some Magico reviews and start planning my next move. ;) You have fine taste sir!

    Curious which came first, the Pass gear or the speakers and was it a "process" going through gear to find that special match?
    Analog Source: Rega P3-24 Exact 2 w/GT delrin platter & Neo TT-PSU
    Digital Source: Lumin T2 w/Roon (NUC)

    To be honest, I don't remember which came first since its been a few years. However, it was around the same time. I also bought a Lumin S1 at that time before getting the X1. Yes it was a process since I went through an upgrade spree for some reason. While everything during the process sounded great I just kept upgrading. Since I am now retired, and the system sounds great, I won't be upgrading very much in the future.

    Think about how disconcerting it could be to work in QC for that guy's namesake company. The cognitive dissonance of having to Fail Pass.

    Very good looking and I'm sure great sounding set-up B) I would certainly be interested in your thoughts between the St.100 and the Pass, these are two amps that I'm looking at.

    The St.100 "Dark" and the X150.8, both around the same money and I'm sure both with a distinctive sound of their own.

    I'm curious of the comparison as well. If I were to ever upgrade my amps it would be either be the PL's or the Rogue.
