Albert Porter's System
The heart of the system is Focal Grande Utopia EM speakers in black finish

Analog music sources, Technics SP10 MK3 with twin SME V-12 tonearms, Studer A810 Archival half + quarter track IEC and NAB tape machine.

Digital music source is Macintosh Mini, early 2015 version with solid state drive and maximum RAM. JRiver 21 plays FLAC, SACD, DSD and HD Tracks Downloads.

Allnic H5000 DHT Phono, Allnic L3000 preamp feed Audio Research REF 250 amps and/or Allnic M3000 MK2 mono blocs.

Mac Mini feeds via Audioquest Diamond USB or Purist Ultimate USB cable to Allnic D5000 DHT DAC.

All other cable is Purist Audio 25th Anniversary Luminist. Regardless if AC, interconnect, tonearm cable or speaker.

My space (18' X 31') is acoustically treated with RPG panels and fiberglass over triple reinforced walls and ceiling.

Floor is lamination beams over steel plates and concrete piers plus two 5/8 epoxy lam sheets for floor. Followed by two inches of concrete float and India multi color slate.

All the reinforcement and acoustic treatment goes unnoticed, due to Whisper Wall rail system and fine textured acoustic cloth covering everything. In these photos and in person) the acoustic work passes for traditional painted sheetrock.

The room acoustics were conceived and specified by RBDG. The entire space was torn out to dirt and studs about nine years ago.
