Yes, a pair of Axiom EP500s provides the foundation for this system.

Harbeth Anniversary 30.2 Speakers
Nordost Frey2 Speaker Cable
Feikert Woodpecker table with Koetsu Black Goldline cartridge
Audio Research PH9 Phonostage
Marantz SA-10 disc player/DAC
Tascam 32-2 reel to reel player and
the glorious
Line Magnetic Premium 845 amplifier

This makes music my friends

Phil, I like how you've set the Harbeths to the side of the fireplace and also away from the front wall. Where do you find music on real?

Hello Mr. Mojo

I record my LPs at 15 ips on 1/4" ATR tape. Sound quality is excellent!!!

That is a beautiful system! Not many people have the skills to properly use a Reel to Reel player.

Hello Craigsub

The reel to reel is pretty easy to thread and the Tascam is a honey of a player/recorder.

Not in any way intimidating once you do it a few times.

I got the 2 track because I record on the entire 1/4" tape. If you have a 4 track, then you get 2 tracks of 1/8" each.

The sound quality is stunning, although it makes no sense that it would be better than the original material, it sounds crazy good, and you don't have to jump up every few minutes (especially with 45 rpm recordings) to flip the record.

That and how cool is it to watch those big reels go round and round? Extremely cool!

Especially since I only like one song.
