  • My System
    In March 2020, the Dynaco-Klipschorn system was sold.

    A new system consisting of a pair of Martin Logan 'Classic' ESL 9 electrostat speakers powered by a Parasound HALO A-21 / 400wpc @4ohms. mated to the Parasound HALO P6 2.1 preamp/DAC connected with Kimber cable balanced interconnects. The DACs are a pair of ESS Saber 32 Reference.

    (New in summer 2017) Marantz SR-6011 AVR, powering a pair of Klipsch Reference Premier 280F towers,
    Reference Premier 240-S bipolar surrounds and Reference Premier 250-C center. All in Cherry finish.

    A vintage pair of Pinnacle Mega Subwoofer 350's in each corner provide the bass for the Klipsch theater system in a 5.2 config. 50" Vizio 'M' Class monitor with 32 LED zones running in 4k for video.

    An Oppo 203 for audio/video is the source for 4k movies and high resolution audio playback.

    For vinyl, a Rega RP-6 turn table with Exact 2 MM cartridge. Color - red.

    For reel to reel playback, a Teac A-6010 deck.

    For Cassette, a vintage Realistic SCT-11 deck.

    The Marantz manages all input sources to it's own preamp, and all is output through ZONE TWO to the Parasound Halo P6 preamp input. Thus making it possible for BOTH systems to play all sources individually or similtanously via simple remote control operation...

    UPDATE! As of August 11, 2020 I added a new pair of Reference Premiere 600-M stand mount speakers for theater use and casual music listening. These are Klipschs' flagship stand mounts and are well viewed and liked throughout the audio community. They were even featured in Stereophile magazine and received a very positive report. Another purchase from my audio guys at Safe And Sound, Chicopee, MA. Brick and Mortar store who is a sponsor of the 'New Record Day' channel on youTube.

  1. Aaaw Melo, dumping that Dual out is sad..... I have had this one since 1978! When CD's came out in the early 80ies, I GAVE this to my mom. She never used it! It just sat for years. When she and my step dad passed away and the homestead was being cleaned out for sale, I ended up getting it back. Just needed a cleanup and I put a new stylus on the Ortofon and added that new red oak plinth which replaced the plastic/woodgrained walnut case. The back side of the Taylor liner are all the words to the tunes
  2. .......and just now, playing Side B......... My old Dual 506 doing the duties tonight.... Here, you can see the headlight from the old truck as the center label. And, with that, I am headed for a movie to round out my Friday evening. Been great to come by for my occasional visit. Enjoy your music eveyone ! See you all again soon, cheers! 🍷

Good evening (morning) my vinyl friends.............well, here it is, a FRIDAY evening and I wanted to add some vinyl spin tonight over in RTM forum, so, as usual, I ALWAYS come to make a stop, read the post on this current page and give the 'likes' and such.
