I put together a 3rd system today with components I was not using.
I could not help but notice the tweaks I incorporated out of habit:
Rotel 960bx (60w) amp
B&K Ref 20
Pioneer DVD w/usb input
PSB Alpha B1's
Yamaha 8" servo sub
Auricle Dig. Sig. 1.5m
Auricle Kapton Rca's
Nordost flatline spkr cables
Rapport sub IC's
OCC 12/3 pc w/Oyaide connectors on Ref 20
P&S 5262 recept (brand new not broken in) on dedicated 20 amp w/12ga romex.
Adcom ACE 515 conditioner
ELCHEAPO TWEAKS USED:
Hubbell Hospital grade (8215C) 3 prong connectors (On Rotel & DVD) used on all (original) 2 prong plugs.
Brass rca caps on all unused inputs (Pre & DVD)
Raquet balls cut in half to support components
Lg. rubber bands to suspend speaker cables from floor (mounted to back wall)
3/4" MDF platform with spikes for the sub
The tweaks add up!
This is a BS system I put together because I got sick of this stuff laying around not being used.
I plan on using this system for my computer system but lack a DAC at this time.
I have to say this system is pretty damn good considering the price, and that these components were laying around unused.
I am sure when the P&S recpt. gets some more hours on it, it will sound even better.
Listening to some Roy Orbison right now & have to say this system is pretty spacious (tweaks?).
Ya got any cheap tweaks?
Lets hear em!
