Welcome to the forum! 

Very nice room! What year are those Heresy speakers? Except for the logo and the risers, they are identical to my 1972 Hs. Same finish, same speaker cloth.

So you are driving all these speakers at once? Or rotate them in?

Love that wall sign. How do you like those amps? Must be pretty good if you got two of them.

The Hersey"s are 1985 by serial number . 

I have had them for about 1.5 years.

i have not open the back yet to check drivers models.  They where one owner he said they were MK 1

 

I can run amps independently or all 3 at the same time.

the input source is the DAC  which goes to the EQ.8  then the amps are Daisy chained use RCA Leads that have a Y connector at the terminator end.

 

So the amps I found those for $450  the 1st one delevoped a hum . at 6 months I had the Amazon warrenty . they sent me a replacement amp .

i asked for a voucher to return the bad amp.

Amazon could not find Company that shipped it to me.

They told me to Keep it.

I did not have anything to lose so opened it up.

and found 3 bad soldier joints.

 

9 months later the company released a amp with bias adjustments.

so note if you look into Tube amps . You want Bias adjustments. You will want a solid state amp and speaker with a sub out.

tube amps. you will want a DAC  you will want a Equalizer there are no tonal controls on tube amps.

if you and decent bass response you will have go with Mactosh or add a solid state support system.

it has been a learn journey getting my system were I want it.

I don't want a SS amp

I don't want an equalizer

I don't want Mactosh (sic)

And I don't want to run three pairs of speakers at once.

 

 

YMMV..........
