I am a retired Market Researcher (consumer research for Fortune 500 companies) who enjoys listening to classical music especially chamber music. Most days I am able to sit in my favorite chair positioned at the sweet spot and listen to my system for an hour or two. I have always had a soft spot for electrostatic /ribbon speakers. Many years ago I heard a pair of large Apogee speakers and got hooked on them. When I finally had a listening room that was appropriate I purchased a pair of the MartinLogan Spire electrostatic speakers. Since then I upgraded to the company’s Montis and recently preordered a pair of their newest speakers, the ESL 13a Expression. Equipment All of my current equipment including interconnects, power cords etc. were purchased by phone, sight unseen, based on the recommendations of a high end audio dealer. All of my cables and power cords are WireWorld that contain OCC® Solid Silver (99.9999% pure silver). My interconnects and speaker cables are Wireworld Gold Eclipse 6. The 7 (seven) power cords are a mix of Wireworld Gold Electra 5.2 and Wireworld Platinum Electra. My SACD player is the Esoteric K01X. The preamp is a Krell Phantom III and my amps are McIntosh 601 monoblocks (600 watts per monoblock). My Power Conditioner is a PS Audio P5. For room treatment I use a pair of ASC IsoThermal Tube Traps and there are rugs on the floor. I hope to add more tube traps in the near future Listening room My listening room is 15ft by 26 ft with a 11 foot ceiling. One of the long walls contains has windows running the length of the wall and the other long wall has an opening 15 feet wide (and 9 feet high) . The room is very lively as the walls are fairly bear. My listening chair is in the center of the room.
