    Re: A few pics of Suncoast Audio

    Mike! You should have posted pictures of what the shop looked like on Monday when I came by!......It was like OMG I better get out of here before he puts me to work! I genuinely felt sorry for Mike.......for about 5 seconds....cause...as I looked at the complete disarray of his shop ...I realized though being a mess it was State Of The Art mess!
    When I came back on Thursday it was all perfect! Everything in place like Santa’s elves had put in overtime. Wow! The new racks are mind boggling .....
    He twisted my arm and forced me to listen to his M3 with the MSB Select Dac.....yep NIRVANA.....All Apologies ..(for the bad puns)
    Then I let him crank up his MBL room (since my morning was shot already) with not 1 but 2 MBLs amplifiers biwired into each speaker. Yo! The spaciousness of the sound from those omnidirectional speakers was simply amazing!
    Yes......Mike has more toys than Santa!.....and yes I believe in him!.....
    Merry Christmas to all!

    Re: A few pics of Suncoast Audio

    I can honestly say that I"ve been in so many listening rooms in my life from all over the world. Mike's rooms are some of the best sounding rooms that I've been in. If you are able to get to Sarasota, it's more than worth it. It's so much more than just the hospitality and set of equipment. I really need some Vicoustics.
    System:
    Vandersteen Quatro CT
    Ayre AX5/20
    Ayre QX5/20 (The Memory Player with built in DAC and headphone amp built in on order)
    Steve Nugent rebuilt Mac mini (2009) with Paul Hynes LPS and custom silver cable server
    AQ Niagara 1000 power device
    Audioquest Castlerock speaker cables
    Wire world optical cable into the Empirical Audio Synchro Mesh from the TV and Blueray to reclock
    Wireworld Platnium 8 ethernet cables into the EMO 70e ethernet filter into the QX5/20 from Eero mesh router
    All routers, cable box and synchro mesh powered by the Wyred4sound LPS box with separate supplies for each
    Audioquest power outlets and two dedicated power lines in the room
    ZMF Ori headphones with the Audioarts 15' Pono balanced cable for the QX5/20
    Empire Ears Phantom CIEM's
    A&K 380cu with matching cu amp (copper which is much warmer than their normal cases)
    Rhapsodio 2.98 mk2 gold plated silver cable for Phantom

    Acoustic treatment is indeed a big deal IMO. My system got to a new level when adding it.
