The room looks great, especially with those CCQ's. Always enjoyed the Parsifal's, they must sound great w/ the C's. Are your panels Real Traps, the one angled between the speakers kind of looks like one of theirs. Cheers -Don

Thanks guys! Yes it is sounding great, my biggest problem these days is finding time to sit back an listen...the amps still have single digit hours on them after a week!

Yes those are RealTraps. The ones in the corners are the bigger MondoTraps, and the ones angles off the ceiling (i have 4 of those) are the discount ones without the bar in the middle. The panels really helped the sound in my room - it was as big an improvement as a component upgrade, and the price was very reasonable. You don't know what the lack of excess ringing or large bass peaks/valleys can sound like, until you hear it.

Well, I guess it's really the music that does that stuff, but only passing the music through my best gear will do!

Though I guess you could say that my headphone rig is my "B" system!

Sindoaddict - funny you should mention the Hommage - my dealer actually has a demo T2 in the store at the moment, but I will not be trying it anytime soon: the CCQ is enough of a financial investment that I don't need to be spending any more for a very long time! It'll be time to enjoy the upgrade that the CCQ's bring to the system.

My guess is that there aren't that many owners of CCQ's anywhere...it'll be interesting to see what are the serial numbers of my units. I saw pictures online of a pair that were built in mid-2011 and were #3 and 4 (the model was introduced in late 2010).
Im interested to compare Shindo Cortese (or other Shindo SET) with their push-pull power amps Corton versions. Did you have a chance to compare them?

I am enjoying reading the comments and also looking at the pictures on this Shindo thread. I had a couple of questions for Shindo owners and would appreciate any responses. I am interested in getting a Montille amp with an Aurieges preamp along with Shindo ICs and A23 speaker cables. They would be powering my Audio Note AN-E SPe HE speakers that are 97.5db efficient. I would like to continue using my Manley Labs Chinook SE MKII phono stage with VPI Prime TT. I do not listen to digital. The Chinook offers me the flexibility to use most cartridges while if I were to use the A23 SUT I would be somewhat limited. Also, all my equipment was recently purchased new and I am not in a hurry to change any pieces out. My first question is will using my phono stage instead of the SUT compromise the Shindo sound? My second question is is there a difference in sound quality between the Aurieges L versus the Aurieges MM? I do not have any need for the MM section since I would be only using MC carts.
Any advice or comments on these two areas would be very much appreciated.

Hello,

I cannot comment on the differences between Aurieges L versus MM.
But imho, MM Shindo phono stages are just among the very best in the world.
With a decent SUT ( you do not need necessarily an A23 Hommage : the EAR MC4 is fabulous imho), a Shindo MM stage will make the Chinook bite the dust in terms of pure musicality, naturalness and dynamics. Especially with AN speakers.
Good luck on your path !

Hi Jerome, thanks for your response and recommending another SUT. I guess I will have to also consider getting a Shindo preamp further up the totem pole that accommodates MCs versus buying both a preamp and SUT.

Yes but take care. Shindo preamps with a MC stage are made specially for the Shindo SPU.
Not so good with other carts or non Shindo SPU.
