the System

the rack

Aerial 10T


Basar's system sits in his main living room. He says that his wife likes (or do not dislike) his system and in particular the Aerial speakers. But if instead of Aerials he had had the big models of Dunlavy he would have serious acceptance problems.

Basar is not a member of Istanbul Hi Fi Club but after my visit and following my missionary words he seemed convinced and promised to attend the next monthly meeting.

Basar listens to jazz (60%), classical (20%), and country / folk (20%) music.

Basar's comments about his System:

AA: "Basar, how would you describe your system's sound?"
BB: "Detailed, natural, sweet sounding and most importantly non-fatigue inducing."
AA: "Do you think there is room for improvement?"
BB: "No."
AA: "Have you got plans for upgrading?"
BB: "In the long run I may add a preamplifier, possibly Jeff Rowland."
