I started my career at a radio & TV repair shop, and I like to every now and then do some upgrading and restoration jobs.
This is my #1 setup, and I used to be a big fan of Avantgarde horn speakers. Before acquiring these Sonus Faber speakers I had AG Duo Mezzo speakers. The AG’s are really impressive speakers, both visually and sound-wise. However, I was never really happy with the integration between the mid-horn and bass unit. Now I’m satisfied.
My sound preference has developed more and more towards a coherent, non-fatiguing listening experience. I prefer to have the vocals right, especially using the voices of some very well-known lady singers.
Setup 2 is based on Marantz 2230 and a really nice Pioneer SX-34B, Sonus Faber Venere 2,5 and streaming Tidal using Mojo Dac and Macbook Pro.
I listen to music ranging from Classical to Sharon Robinson, a singer who often collaborated with the late Leonard Cohen.
