    340 Watts of SET Amplification

    Hello guys,

    i finally was able to get my 6 channels of external amplification of my speakers. Most of you know that i sold the Krell Reference Amps. Cant wait to get the controller boards and subwoofer amps back.

    Here are some pics :-)

    Flo, great setup. They could use you at some of these electronics shows. Sometimes it looks as though they just dropped the gear on the floor and ran wires to it. I like the painting between the bass traps. Who's the artist?

    Excellent Florian!

    Could we also see a pic of the sitting area so we can get a scale of the room? Also how about some close ups of the other gear in the rack?

    Hello guys

    So, here go some more pics.

    The power consumption and heat is insane. The powerbill is aproximatly 300$ a month for the system

    Thanks for the comment about the rack, i designed it myself.

    So this is the back of the room were you can see some of my vinyls.



    This is a shot of the NAT Audio SE 2 SE MK1 with 80 SET Watts.



    This is my power distribution block. I take it straight from the main house ins.



    This is from the rear of the system



    This is my phono stage



    This is my Plasma Preamp



    This is the DIP Combo and the Apple TV



    This is my tube dac

    Dang!!! Thanks Flo!

    That is one very nice system you got there! From looking at the back of the room it seems you been also doing some shopping at IKEA? Also that chair is really nice, is that from IKEA?

    Looks great, Flo. New digs I see. You appear to live in a ground level home now where if memory serves, you started out in a second level apartment requiring cranes to get the gear upstairs.

    Yikes. Even if I were to run the 300 watt per VTL monos 24/7 at full power - which never happens - I would only be paying around $90/month. How expensive is power per kilowatt hour there in Germany? Including taxes and "storm recovery charge", I pay about $.11 / kWh. Even my pool pump only runs about $100 / month during the summer months.

    IKEA "Expedit" bookshelves are excellent for storing lots of vinyl (laser discs as well).
