    Hi guys,

    This is my first posting on this topic. I'm using a SB3 Classic in my system, since januari 2008.

    Later this year I might put the icing on the cake by purchasing a DAC for the SB3. (probably a CA DACmagic)

    regards,
    Alco

    Here's a most recent snapshot of my setup.



    I replaced the supplied power-supply with a dedicated PSU from CI Audio. This is quite an improvement!

    Hi Christian,

    It's an old Target B3 rack, from the early 90's.
    I was searching for a decent, not too high 3-shelf rack for quite some time and found that one on the s/h market early this year.
    (the top-shelf is resting on 4 small, hight-adjustable spikes)

    Here's a more close-up picture, with my 20year old, beloved Naim Nait-2 amp on top:

    (the unit on the bottom-shelf is just an old CD-storage unit to fill up the gap)



    cheers,
    Alco

    Technics SL-PG 400A for CDs (which I'm using rarely now...),
    Sony MDS-JE 780 Minidisc-Deck (I still like it)
    an old Technics SL-BD 20 (haven't used it for a long time, but who knows),
    a Panasonic DVD-S100 for viewing DVDs and a Panasonic DMR-E100H for recording
    and some no-name speakers which I own for over 15 Years now,
    but they still sound fine to me.

    So long,
    Sushi
    I was just browsing this Squeezebox photos thread, and noticed this Hifi stand!

    Hey Sushi, is that hifi stand is a custome made shelf? I like that very much, and it's actually seems a very good idea for me.
    Could you help me what are those "white bricks" that makes the legs under the glass?

    I have posted my first impression under audiophile section on CA Dacmagic.

    After more than 100 running hours, IMO,CA DacMagic now provides a warmer and musical sound stage than my first auditioning, each musical instruments are well defined and presented.
