Winter Project, new TT Rack

Winter Project, new TT Rack

Postby mreeter » Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:19 pm

Just finished up a little Winter Project. Built a new TT Rack and moved it to the side of the room. Previously had the TT on top of the center Rack (which was taller) but have a pesky Heat Vent right above it, spewing out Dry Air and Dust. The new position has also cleaned up the Center Imaging as well...win, win :)

I ended up with a 5 Meter Pair of Audio Sensibility Statement SE RCA Interconnects. My Phono Stage doesn't have Balanced Output, so I settled for RCA. The cable needs some break-in time yet, but it's sounding very good right out of the box.

Nice work! It looks great! I like having as much of the gear off to the side as well. Sound improvement considerations aside, it just looks a lot cleaner to me.

Thank you, moving the TT away from the overhead Heat Vent was priority. Added benefits are a Bonus :)

Your room (and rack) looks great! Did you make your panels yourself or are they something off the shelf?

Thank you, the Panels are a DIY Project also. Pretty simple stuff!
