    Greetings from exotic Oklahoma

    Hello,

    Thanks for inclusion in your your Audio forum. Iím looking forward to learning and sharing about this hobby of ours.

    Having recently retired, Iím having a ball assembling a new system. Primarily intended to be a vinyl based analog system here is how it looks at the moment.

    Amp - Odyssey Kismet monoblocks in Khartago boxes heavily modified by Odyssey. Solid state, around 175 wpc but it doubles into 4 and again into 2 ohms with TONS of current, all needed for my speakers.

    Preamp - Odyssey Candela tube upgraded with dual outputs and remote.

    Phono - Odyssey Suspiro MM/MC solid state phono pre single box version. Upgrade to external power supply at some point. Maybe....

    Turntable - Pro-Ject 2Xperience with carbon fiber arm and Blue Point 2 cartridge.

    Speakers - Prototypes that never made it to market. Floor standing tower with inverted dome ceramic tweeter and Seas midwoof and (same Seas driver) 2 woofers. Very fast, detailed and coherent but a NASTY load that drops below 2 ohms at 30 hz.

    Cables - Audioquest Midnight speaker wire, Groneberg and Transparent interconnects, Groneberg and Transparent power cables.

    Digital - OPPO 203 DVD/CD/SACD player

    DAC - None, looking at Schiit products.

    Tweaks - Herbies vibration products, cryo hospital grade AC outlets, granite platforms, racks have sand filled columns, listener sits on inverted conical points.

    Wish list - Dedicated AC lines, room treatments, my ears called from 1990 but I couldnít hear the phone

    Thanks! A very welcoming group. I bet that sets a tone that discourages trollers. Either way, much appreciated.

    Ive also noticed the gear owned by all my greeters is quite high end. Looking forward to the discourse.

    Welcome to the shark. As far as trollers Mike won't let them stay. Great place to learn and meet new friends. Don't ever worry about anyone else's system. I think we all started with way less than what you have (at least I did). It's all about the music and what you expect any way you look at it.

    Happy to have you on board. You absolutely have some great gear. Don’t worry, it’s not a contest. I’ve always wanted to try Odyssey Audio gear. It’s very highly regarded. Have fun!
