Vandersteen Audio 3A loudspeaker Sidebar 2: System

Sidebar 2: System
The Vandersteen was auditioned with a Krell KPS-20i CD player used as a transport and feeding a Mark Levinson No.35 D/A converter through a Kimber AGDL digital coaxial cable. TARA Labs Master RSC (unbalanced) connected the Levinson converter to a Rowland Consummate preamp. The primary power amplifier in the system was the Krell KSA-300S. Preamp-to-power-amp interconnects were Monster M1500s or AudioQuest Diamonds (both unbalanced). Loudspeaker cables were either a Monster M1.5 bi-wire or an AudioQuest Midnight/Sterling Hyperlitz bi-wire set (Midnight on the bass, Sterling for the midrange/treble).
