    Yes I am quite proud of the sound I have achieved in this room. Not that I have any responsibility for the gifted engineers and technicians that built the equipment I use, but all the research and trials I performed in order to get where I am. It starts with the room. 15' x 22' with open cathedral ceiling. There is lots of glass but I have found the blinds do an amazing job attenuating troublesome frequencies. Next of most importance are the speakers. I have greatly admired Siegfried Linkwitz over the years. This is the same Linkwitz that invented the Linkwitz–Riley crossover (along with Russ Riley) that has been standard use in speakers since the 70s. He is also one of the original pioneers in dipole and open baffle speakers. Although I don't began to understand most of his analysis he shares, I have found everything he says to be absolutely true in my own experience.

    The Audio Artistry Beethoven Elites are probably Linkwitz's highest speaker achievement to date. I have lusted after a pair for years and got really lucky to find a pair locally just a few years ago. Amazing sounding speakers in so many ways and the absolute key to the musical performance of my room. Everything else in the system was chosen to make these speakers perform to their full potential (within economic reason).

    A couple of article on Linkwitz and these speakers;

    Yes, I enjoy the vintage stuff. Mainly because there are so many audio things I lusted after when I was young that I could not afford. Vintage audio is a very fun hobby!

    Re: Stout's system

    Hi guys, it’s been a while since I have visited but found some time lately to snoop around. Noticed my system is not updated so thought I would revisit this tread.


    I’ve added a Sony APR-5003 open reel deck, and Oppo UDP-205 SACD player and a Yamaha CT-7000 tuner since I last posted. The pro Sony deck is an absolute joy to use and listen to. It also makes marvelous analog recordings. The Oppo is only used for SACD stereo playback and that it does very, very well. I’m thinking about having Modwright upgrade it but maybe next year. I rebuilt the Yamaha tuner and I have to say it may be the best I have ever heard FM? There are a few stations left around here that I am fond of so it was worth the hassle.
