Judging by that sound system you'd probably get along well with @Clipdat.

Nice system, @wbradley!

Looks like Totem towers powered by an Usher amplifier with a Schiit Freya preamp?

That is correct, thanks.

Sounds like you too are somewhat of an audiophool.

You know your Schiit.

Care to tell us what your system is?

My setup changes often because I write gear reviews, but lately I've been enjoying this:

Tidal & Qobuz via Auralic Vega G1 -> Benchmark LA4 -> Benchmark AHB2 -> PMC twenty.22

Turntable is a Technics SL-1200mk2 with Ortofon OM-30 cartridge.

Benchmark is good stuff so is PMC for that TL bass response.

If you write reviews, care to send a link or two? I subscribed to Stereo Review when I was a teenager back in the late 70's. lol

This system is also the result of many different components in and out over the last 3 years, when I've also bought a lot of records.

My digital front end is Tidal usually via notebook> Topping D90 DAC
The analogue is a VPI Classic w/ Dynavector 17D3 cartridge, Cinemag blue SUT, Sutherland PH3D (battery) phono pre. All DIY built cables using Furutech, Eichmann and low mass banana terminations and OCC UP copper. Mogami Neglex, Gotham Neotech and Cardas.

I post a lot on Canuck Audio Mart , which is same as the US Audio Mart but mostly Canadians. Not a fan of Audiogon particularly though.

Sorry everyone for getting OT but if you've never spinned records you'll just never know!

Very nice analog setup! I'm currently experimenting with Mogami and Furutech wiring as well.

The Moderna vaccine second shot kicked MomHawk to the couch for two days. She had a very sore shoulder, chills and a raging headache. Took about 12 hours to start and 48 hours to clear.
