Default Serge's aka Parabellum System

Hey there,

I finally managed to receive my audio rack yesterday, so I set everything up in place and had a few shots this morning. So here it is.

The system consist of:

McIntosh C46 preamplifier
McIntosh MC252 amplifier
McIntosh MCD301 CD player
Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 speakers with Foundation 7 stands
Kimber Kable KS 3033 speaker cables
Kimber Kable KS 1111 interconnect to CD player
Blue Jeans Cable XLR interconnect to amplifier
Shunyata Black Mamba HC-CX on amplifier
Shunyata Black Mamba CX on preamplifier and CD player
VTI BL404 audio rack (all posts sand filled)

As seen on the back of the C46, I blocked all unused RCA and XLR ports. Well, except the RCA ports for the phono section. In fact, I do have my Clearaudio Emotion Black but I just need to add a cartridge. This is why the top shelf of the audio rack is unoccupied.

Off course, this is my system now but it is always evolving so I will update this thread whenever I make upgrades

Thanks for looking,

Serge

Serge, very clean, very very clean. Love the isolation and those cables are insane.

Thanks guys!

The unfortunate thing about those insulating blocks is that my cat Sally likes them too... Too much actually. See photos.

I have to keep the door shut in order that she does not do any more damages

Also pictured is the guilty one.

From one Serge to another, nice system! Enjoy! By the way, that cat doesn't look like he feels bad or guilty.... But he is too cute to be angry at!
