I received my new system from beemers417 last weekend and finally set it up.
Here is my remaining TFM 15cb that works and sitting on top of it is the SDA 450 CD player and C-5 Pre-amp.
Here is a close up of that stack
Here is the M 500 I also got from beemers
Doesn't that look nice? I told ya I liked meters jumping around. Right now this amp is warming up to
the Allman Bros Soulshine.
I did a lot of research and decided that I wanted to buy vintage equipment from an established dealer and not risk the gamble
on ebay, at least for right now. I had a list of what I was interested in, Tom provided me with some objective input and I selected these three pieces. Even though I had a list of options, like asking for the remotes, I forgot to ask Tom if these were included. It was nice that he included working remotes for both the SDA 450 and C-5.
Packaging was double boxed and everything arrived nice and safe and about 2 days after he shipped them.
Right now I have this hooked up to a pair of Klipsch Heresys and boy they sound wonderful. I also have a pair of Klipsch Epic CF3's that I will probably try as well. I am looking at a second M-500 and could bi-amp the CF3's. This weekend I am picking up a pair of Cornwalls as well so it will be fun trying out all three speaker combos.
Man it is so nice to listen to music again on a nice set up.
Gotta run, like I said, I'm outta here, at least for a little while
