The first time Dean stopped by my shop, a few years back, he was floored by the Shindo 301 Player System, and was hooked on Shindo Labs ever since. He has taken his time developing a system that has rewarded him with it’s sonic virtues.
Like Stephen’s cool system, in the previous post, this hifi rig also resides in a beautiful living space. Dean’s Shindo Vosne-Romanee preamp and newly acquired Lafon GM70 amps (replacing VTL MB450’s) stand proud on the hip Room & Board Kinkaid media cabinet, flanked by Tannoy Prestige SE loudspeakers. Source components are a VPI Turntable, AMR CD-77.1 CD Player w/USB input and Sansui TU-9900 Tuner. Dean was inspired by my recent REL Precendent FM Tuner post and scored one for himself, recently. A Shindo Mr T. provides the juice and Shindo Interconnects and Auditorium 23 Speaker Cable complete the musical message.
According to Dean, his next move will be a Shindo 301 Turntable and another Mr. T to further maximize performance of the mono amplifiers, and system in general.
