    Default OK here's my first 2 ch system partly done with pics

    I got my mono's in and can start playing around with cables and tubes. I just unpacked the amps a few hours ago to let them get warmed up

    I don't have a rack yet so don't judge me lol as I know there will be the usual suspects looking at this. I am going to be getting my My Wireworld gold eclipse 6 ic's on Monday to go with Wireworld eclipse speaker cables I have. I just bought some electra power cables that I will be running but right now they are being used as cable risers.

    Next thing will be the bryston transport for the digital files to pair up with the dac but I wont go there just yet as I bought all this stuff in the past month.

    You know I never thought about that as a 2 ch system but your right the yaqin was 2 ch. I never really considered the yaqin as a serious 2 ch venture like I have researched for this system. I am sitting here listening to music with my jaw open catching flies, as soon as a song's done I am like WTF then I go for something else I listned to a million times and go WTF and then look for something else. I geuss all I can say so far is WHAT THE F**K!!!!!

    I know I have to let the cables and amps all burn in but there is so many things all thrown in at the same time here but I really like what I can hear. I don't know what to give credit to in the system and will have isolate things to judge properly. There are these little subtle ques that come out in instruments and voices, I never experienced the way voices are so clear with individual words of the decay of the last note and begining of the next.

    I have a high resolution system with what I was previously using and never thought I would get more detail, I only thought I would get better tone to them details but this here is a diff class altogether. If its going to get better I can't fathom it, I hear the blah blah I heard details I never heard before but this is very true and at low level volume levels.
