Howdy all. Just arrived home from an epic road trip from California to Arizona, New Mexico and on through to Houston, Texas. My primary goal was to personally install a full Shindo Labs setup. Admittedly the 1,400~ mile trip was a long one, but it was a good excuse to see more of the country, road trip style.
Call it wanderlust, I suppose. I relate to that subtle restlessness and ache for distance beyond the evening dusk and orange illuminated mountain peaks.
The earthy murmur of distant sounds and texture of new surrounds resonates well with me.
On to the system…
First off, un-crating and hauling it all to the listening room is half the battle! 🙂
This incredible music making system is, first off, supported by the LignoLab Equipment Support, the foundation of this setup. Electronically it is composed of: Shindo 301 Player System, Auditorium 23 Hommage Step Up Transformer, Acoustic Plan Vadi CD Player, Shindo Pétrus Preamplifier, Shindo WE300B Single Ltd. Amplifiers, full Shindo Interconnect and Speaker Wire, Shindo 604 Field Coil (in Latour sized cabinets) Loudspeakers. Dual Mr. T’s round out the set up.
Sonically, it worked out just great. A large L shaped couch resides at the right, rear corner. On the left side of this system, resides additional cabinets and seating. The setup sounded incredible when all was said and done – effortless, bold, visceral- and with an overall realism, presence and subtly that other systems only hint at.
