Default mdavis’s System

I’ve been viewing this site for years and would like to share images of my current system. I will post more once Stillpoints USS arrive for my newly acquired Pass Labs XA-60.8 monoblocks (which are stunning amps replacing my MSB S200 stereo amp).

Thanks for looking.

Nice pics and system! I was thinking about one of those Audio Elegance stands myself but decided on a Timbernation stand. It looks great.

Really nicely put together. Are those GIK Bass soffits?

Thank you all for the compliments.

@mcpaf76: Those are indeed GIK Bass Soffits. I have four (two stacked) in the two front corners of the room. They do a great job controlling bass and revealing clarity. I also have three Stillpoints Aperture panels between the Soffit traps helps to create a black hole from which the music emerges.

Thought so. I have one in each corner, and they made a huge difference, I can imagine 4 is even more substantial.

Incredible, right? This was one of the most significant upgrades I’ve made to my system.

Beautiful system, congratulations. Is that a Mapleshade isolation system? If so, where are the Stillpoints going?
