Default Jerome's Systems

Main :

I use 2 different systems in parallel.

Speakers are Wilson WP8 in Topaz.
Serious listening : Shindo Giscours and Corton Charlemagne Q monoblocks with digital or LP.
Ambiance / Sports / HT : Manley 300 B Neo Classic and Snappers monoblocks, with digital only.

Analog source are the REGA P9 with DL103 Expert Stylus Company cart and A23 SUT and the McIntosh MR77 tuner.
Digital transports are either Squeeze Box Touch or Musical Fidelity V Link 192 with Mac Book Pro. Dac is my beloved McIntosh MDA1000 connected to both the Giscours and the 300B preamps.
Speaker cables and ICs are WireWorld Silver Eclipse 6.
Isolation : Giscours is on a Pro Audio Bono Basic AVP. Same ordered for the CCQ.
P9 is on a Gingko platform and a maple board, on Atacama rack.

Only possible change in the main system in the future : replace the P9 by the P10 when it will be available. And maybe an Hommage A23 SUT for the 103 when I will get bored !
But I wood also love to compare the MDA1000 to the MPD3 dac of Playback Designs....
