Some pretty stout gear there.
Been resisting adding a tt to the second system but it just might happen.
And another rabbit hole to dive headfirst into!
I suppose I could also rehash the 3rd system too, which is really in my daughter's room and very simple.
Jvc tt, PS3( CD, Spotify, Pandora) just into a Klipsh wall mounted sound bar.
Been toying with idea of a cheap integrated/DAC and bookshelf sized speakers.
But the sound bar does sound surprisingly good so I should probably leave well alone!
Update onto my second system (which is placed into my bedroom):
Headphones #1: Sennheiser HD-650 Headphones
Phono Preamplifier: Schiit Mani
Turntable: Technics SL-1210 M5G + Nagoaka MP-200
Cassette Deck: Nakamichi BX-300 (Returning... want a used one in good condition off of eBay.... bought one in the late 80’s, and had the original one for 26 Years)
Music Player: BlueSound NODE 2 (coming Christmas 2018 or early 2019)
And thinking about upgrading the Integrated Amplifier (in time, of course), to a Denon, Harman/Kardon, a Kenwood, or a Yamaha (all older or recent models with Dual-Mono construction.... newer ones are insanely expensive, and they’re not economically feasible for a secondary system).
After this system is assembled, I may never step foot into my living room ever again (LOL)
Very nice sounding system.
I think you will like the AT headphones, I just sold mine in favour of a pair of audeze el8 open backs but they were extremely precise and detailed and imho punched way above their price point.
Good call on the Nakamichi deck, I own 3 now...lol. 582, bx100 and lx3.
Can't bear to see my pile of tapes just sitting collecting dust.
I live in an interior townhouse, flanked by people who still work. My bedroom system had to yield to not disturbing the neighbors, so, I have a Magnum Dynalab FM tuner feeding a BP-6c preamp, with STAX Lambda Pro Headphones from the preamp. We have a wonderful 24/7 classical music station (WBJC) nearby, so I can lie in bed and either read or listen.
My third "system" is a pair of B&W MM-1 speakers for my iMac so I can listen to classical stations on Internet Radio while I'm writing this input. (The B&Ws have their own DAC, OK for the purpose.)
