SKR is another veteran audiophile, having been at it for over 20 years - playing around with Avant-Garde, Wilson Audio, Nagra, etc. Featured here is one of the systems in one of his homes in the city of angels.  The gear is gradually being built up, where he is getting familiar with each component before moving on.  SKR has been very enthusiastic about the GSP Audio phono stages that he has 2 sets, one in another house (Click Me! to read his comments). 


The electrostatic character is easily identifiable here, although the Quads are more on the silky-smooth side compared to Magneplanars or Martin Logans.  Overall, the sound has been tuned to be more on the velvety side, with the tubes and speakers appropriately chosen to get the desired sound.


SKR knows the obvious upgrade needed is on the turntable, and we suggested a more powerful amplifier for the Quads, especially if he decides to keep the Shunyata Hydra power conditioner.

The Rogue Audio preamplifier.  It has a built-in phono stage, but is bypassed

His trusty old Jadis JA-40 power amplifier


The Shunyata Hydra 4.  Our impression is that it is audibly limiting

the amplifier's power or current delivery after testing with and without,

made more obvious with the current/power-hungry Quads.
