Music First Audio: A Smooth Operator
Analog first. The turntable was a Triangle Arts Symphony, tonearm a Rega RB-300 with Audio Origami mods, and cartridge a Denon DL103D. The phono preamp, a Conrad Johnson Motif, was set to 10k input impedance, which together with the Music First step-up resulted in a net load on the cartridge of 267 ohms.
Other goodies: AMR CD-77.1 CD player, Audionote AN-E Lexus HE silver wired speakers, Zu Audio Event silver cabling, PS Audio P10 Power Plant, and GIK Acoustics 244 bass traps with Scatter Plates. Oh, and Otari MX5050 Mk. III-2 tape deck and, talk about detail, RMG International Studio Master 911 tape.
