And thank you again Mark for setting the Statements up during a incoming hurricane ! I know we went for lunch the next day, but did we take the Lamborghini ? I did love to show of that car when i had out of town visitors
Hee haw! The big dog in da howzzzz!
Finally, finally, finally - from my initial post in 2018 around Sept when I acquired these dream stats, hearing them the first time, driven with Dan D's Momentums in Spore stopped the train! Then later on about two years after, listened again very closely at Mr. K's place, with his full Leben & Pass Labs line up, in a well arranged room perfectly laid out, I was fully convinced that these are the reference stats that I will end up with, no doubt!
After about a year..., so a total of three years of hard labour... I got these full range stats driven with my fully upgraded CJ amplification line up.
However, the biggest downside to all that awesomeness was the bloody room! No matter what upgrades I did on the pre-power, plus AC mains upgrades, mods on the Class A voltage rails, plus class A voltage regulators, made incremental changes but still the full potential was yet to be unleashed!
From our humble shoebox... Now to a place well built and equipped with the latest upgrades in AC mains regulators, plus dedicated 10 amp lines for the monoblocks, ladies & gentlemen, Audiophiles, music enthusiasts and regular shoppers, here it is!
Every minute detail, level of control in transients and power and finesse delivered in true CJ tube power amplification at its finest! The depth, speed, realism, and sheer transparency is just breathtaking! I have no further words to describe this particular sound, just pure music I guess.
From this experience all I can possibly say and advice fellow Audiophiles is the ROOM!
Oh my goodness golly gracious, what a superb level of pristine quality, especially in the soundstage. Along with ample bass, and when I say bass, I mean whiplash bass, not just lumpy thuds or kabooms... This is something truly to be experienced personally, afterwhich you will understand what I mean by system-to-room interaction.
It is of paramount importance to provide ample space for those larger systems, otherwise you're just kidding yourself, there's no denying it. No matter what you tweak or try, if you haven't got the room and extra space for large speakers, please don't buy large speakers!
High grade reference monitors will provide a far more accurate representation of recorded music in smaller rooms. I also believe that those software gadgets, such as digital room correction and EQ software..., will certainly help to a certain extent but unless you've got the right room, there's no point in really trying to correct anything!
Well here it is Maties, cheers to all, absolutely loving it, nothing I've ever owned has come this close.
Now it's definitely time to pour out the scotch and light that cigar... Cheers, RJ
