RE: Pass INT-60: how to place in the room?

Well, IT arrived today. A short 2-hours of playing through a lot of my favorites that test ambiance, control, spatial cues, and power balance tells me that:

1. The rave reviews are not fake news. This is quite a piece.
2. The lower-end control is strong. I enjoyed my KT-88 Jolida d801 from Shanghai a lot, but this is much different on the lower registers. In a good way.
3. The silence is deafening - sounds are just "there".
4. It's built like a tank. Finding a final table top for it - the attached photo is an interim solution - will require some careful furniture selection.

The UPS guy tucked this thing under his arm, double-boxed and all, and brought it into the living room for me. Very strong guy.

Plug for a vendor: Mark at Reno HiFi was great to work with, everything is exactly as he said it would be. Packing was well done, etc.

More later, but this is a quantum jump purchase - let's call it "end game". No more trolling the hifi mags for cool new products like this. Maybe a turntable, though....
