I have been making a lot of changes to my setup lately. I sold my Soulution 710, and disconnected my Berkeley Alpha DAC II and Alpha USB, Aurender S10 and even my trusted Transporter.
My revised setup is as follow:
- Mac Mini with Pure Music
- Soulution 590
- 2x Devialet D-Premier in Mono Block mode
- DSPeaker AntiMode 2.0 Dual Core
- Wilson Benesch Torus Infrasonic Generator with Torus Amplifier
- Magico Q1
The system is much simplified from what I had before, yet, I believe this is giving me the best sound I have ever had.
In my previous post, I talked about the DSpeaker Anti-Mode 8033S-II. It was so good that I ordered their current flagship product, Anti-Mode 2.0 Dual Core.
So how does it measure?
This is all done with the Torus with 8033S-II (not yet updated with AM2DC yet) and a pair of Q1. This is pretty remarkable. I will be tuning this more, but I am getting a very very smooth response as is. The Q1 alone has plenty of bass extension, but I am currently crossing using the Devialet’s digital crossover, at 100Hz, 2nd order crossover to the Q1. I want to ‘free’ the Q1 up and give it even more headroom and lower the distortion. At the same time, I can place the Q1 where I think they are best in terms of imaging, and let the Torus takes care of the bass.
More to come…
