My system has changed dramaticly. I have to sell some equipment now, so I need to get a hold of my wife's digital camera. Picks will be coming soon.

I am now running a Shelter 501 cart, Clearaudio Champion TT, Modded 834P phonostage, passive Placette Linestage, AES Six Pac Monoblocks and original CLS's.

Who says ML's need lots of power? 50 watts sounds more powerful than 200 watts. Also much more refined.

Very NICE!!

Nice to see another tube system driving ML. Especially the combination of AES SixPacs driving the original CLS. Being in my vicinity of the SF Bay Area is a pleasant surprise for I might have to take a short drive over and listen ;-)

Cheers

Looks more like the home of an artist.

Gotta love it. :)
What, is being a computer programmer and artist mutually exclusive? :D

B.T.W. I am a full time telecommuter and my desk sits directly behind my listening couch in the sweet spot.
