John L.’s Small Room Setup

John L.’s Small Room Setup

I have the smallest room in the house, 11’x10′, but it’s my retreat.
I’ve mixed new and not-so-new gear with my vintage receiver collection.
Currently using ADS speakers but can add my JBL J320A, Epos Epic 2, Baby
Advent II, JBL P20, or HSU Research HB-1 Mk II when I want.

  • Two (2) Technolink TC-616 6-way Stereo Amplifier/Speaker Comparators;
  • Technics SE-A1000 Reference 75wpc Stereo Power Amplifier coupled to a Yamaha RX-797 Stereo Receiver as the pre-amp;
  • Bluesound Node 2 Streamer running through a Cambridge Audio DACMagic Plus Stereo
    DAC/Headphone amp/pre-amp and into the Pioneer SX-750;
