My Audio Setup
|First of all, special thanks to Marcus, Tk, Choon seng
and Jonhigh for their help in my hifi journey! They have helped me
I started my journey in 1998. Actually, I have started my interest in hifi since I was 15 years old. My first setup was an Arcam Alpha 3 integrated amplifier, Philips CD692 cdp and mission 760i speakers (Still using in bedroom!).
Theta Chroma DAC & Marantz CD-16D.
The interest died down soon after I got into the polytechnic. It was only after my University did I rekindle the fire!
ProAc Tablette 50 on Standesign Z-stand sand filled.
I actually used the old system for several months. The first to get replaced was the cdp. I got the marantz cd63se.
Tweaked power socket with 'Magic' cones from Audio Industries. Clarity and imaging improves.
After that purchase, things really got a little crazy. I replaced everything! To cut the story short, I must have tried a dozen amps, speakers, cables and cdp.Today, I enjoy musicality, dynamics, good PRAT, good soundstage and refinement.

I sold away my Powerpack IIp after I found out its 'Evils' in my system. After several days of evaluation, I settled for this DIY power strip and Jonhigh's DIY conditioner.Now I get fluidity, still enough control and imaging with lush, expressive details!
