I threw up a few pics of my current stereo system ...


Top to bottom, (under Pavarotti):

Denon T-767 tuner (from the early 1980's)
Sony SCD-775CE SACD player
Schiit Bifrost Uber DAC
Audio Research LS9 preamp
Belkin PF60 AC filter and surge protector
Pass Labs X150.5 power amp
to the right, a slice on one Magneplanar MG 1.6QR speaker
(not in view) PSB Subsonic 5 subwoofer

Re. the Sony SACD, 16/44.1 through the Schiit DAC sounds better than SACD direct from the player's analog.

The Pass amp is a bit too heavy, (62 lbs), for the shelves; I fabricated the floor stand from scrap lumber.

Very nice! Where's the TT with all those LP's?

Excellent question! There IS no turntable; I removed it about a year and a half ago because I hadn't listened to any LPs for a year or two before that. The LPs stay, though, because my wife likes the look.
