As I already have a pair of speakers that I love I don't really know what possessed me to purchase another pair, other than the obvious fact that these are just drop dead gorgeous and sound very good too 🤣🤣

So a mate of mine has just given me his old Bang & Olufsen HiFi system that he purchased new in 1977. It comprises a Beocenter 1800 , Beocord 1100 tape deck and Beovox S45 speakers. All in great condition and working, although I haven't had chance yet to try a tape as I don't have one 🤣. Sounds good for it's age.

My new toy.

ST40 MkIV Signature Edition
Hi John, very interesting that you have decided to try one of these. My first valve amp was an Icon Audio ST40 . How are you finding it compared to your previous monoblocks?
Cheers Ady

Installed a new reference master clock, a Coherent internally upgraded Mutec Ref10.
Unbelievable peformance boost in my system, I call it the 'reality box' for all extra natural realism it provides!

Not my 1st piece of IA kit, started out in 2016 with LA4 Mk1, then PS1. 2 SE > PS3SE, had a PassiveR (used for <30seconds, disgusting veiled piece of shite). The ST40 is pretty similar to the MB845SEs maybe not quite as authoritative and warm, but more punchy & detailed with more extended airey HF.
I thought the Arcams were superb with the Puresound A30, the ST40 has really kicked them up a level or two, in UL mode it was even happy driving the Summits, but am sticking with the Arcams.

Current system, lots of old stuff as music was better in the 19XX's so the equipment must have been as well?

1701532762764.png

Sony PS-6750 with original oil filled mat & 2 head shells Goldring 1042 in one Entre Ec1 in the other.
Alexa.. used as an Internet tuner.. works brilliantly.
Technics SU-C1010 Pre Amp with battery powered option
Marantz CD7300.. ( Ive also got a highly modded CD94 that needs to be fixed)
Little dot 2 headphone amp, & Musicman Cans
MSMI SU-8 Dac
Amazon fire for Amazon Music streaming.
Pair of Analogue Audio Donezetti Power amps
Jungson JA88D.. Integrated amp ( early version 30Kg+ and a bit noisy, suspect a cap is going)
Finally in the garage a Cambridge Audio 640P having its Caps and Op-amps changed.
Speakers are Medowlark Blue Heron 2's
