Reference System 3: Tom Andry

Reference System 3

Reference System 3

Main features include Aperion Audio's Verus Grand Towers, Center and Bookshelf speakers for full surround duties. For reference, we keep on hand  Emotiva's highly acclaimed ERD-1s for di-pole/bi-pole reference. Of course the Axiom EP500 subwoofer - one of the nicer subwoofers we've measured to date - fills out the bottom end nicely with the Aperion Audio Bravus II 12D lending a helping hand. A Squeezebox Duet server allows for audio streaming from computers and the Internet. Recent additions include Emotiva Audio's RSP-1, RPA-1, and Denon's DVD-3910 for testing high end speakers and Seymour AV's Ice Block Amplifies for powering the mains. In the future components in this system are likely to be somewhat "fluid" as Tom heads up many flat panel, speaker, and Media Center PC reviews. The room has recently been converted to a front projection system with Da-Lite universal mount and screen. Reference projector has not be determined yet.
