"APARTMENT-FRIENDLY" IKONOKLAST3 2-CHANNEL STEREO SYSTEMS
Live in an apartment, or otherwise cant blast it?
(Or just dont like it loud?) No problem, these
systems remain stunningly clear and musically satisfying
at ultra low sound volumes that would be impossible to
enjoy, using other fine quality speakers. Even the clear
and powerful low bass will delight you, with the volume
control barely cracked open!
You must hear this to believe it, so ask us to
demonstrate it for you.
To make it easier for music lovers to assemble a complete
system utilizing our top-reviewed Ikonoklast3 speakers,
we have selected compatible components of sufficient
quality to assure that end users can enjoy the extreme
sonic realism made possible by these unusual reproducers.

Purchase all of the above System 1 components together,
and receive a $1000.00 discount, for a net price of
$5995 plus tax (CA residents only). Any shipping
charges also additional. The Sony player and Decware amp
are preowned in excellent condition, with no warranty.
The Vacuum State Mods and Ikonoklast speakers are new and
have 5-year parts and labor limited warranties.
Due to power constraints of the Decware amp, System 1 is
best for music lovers who always listen at lower than
typical volume levels. If louder reproduction is desired,
two Decware amps may be used for an increase of 6dB, into
the room. The Decware amp has a volume control, and is
sufficiently sensitive to be driven to full output by the
modified Sony, without any preamp.
If you want or need to listen at very low volume levels,
it seems doubtful you could assemble a better sounding
system even at several times System 1s modest cost.
System 1 quantities are limited.

Purchase all of the
above System 2 components, together, and receive a
$1200.00 discount, for a NET PRICE OF ONLY $6795.00.
Sales tax applies only to California sales, and shipping
charges, if any, are extra. The Sony player and Decware
amp are preowned and have no warranty. The Vacuum State
Mod and the Ikonkolast3 speakers are new, and have a
5-year parts & labor limited warranty.
Like System 1, System 2 is appropriate mostly for
listening "on the quiet side," but can have its
output level increased by 6dB, simply by adding an
additional Decware SE84 amplifier. No preamp required.
System 2 offers a significant upgrade over system 1, due
to the much more costly transport in the SCD-777ES.
Within its limited volume capability, it may be very
difficult to assemble a system that offers more sonic
realism than System 1, even at several times the cost.
System 2 quantities are limited.
Want even better music reproduction than System 1 and 2?
We find that upgrading the amplifier to a Wavac MD300B
offers an excellent improvement. These Japanese
"boutique" SET amplifiers also may be used
without a preamp, and have a new MSRP of about $7000.
Sometimes available used for around $4500.
Want an ultimate System? In order to hear how good the
Ikonoklast3 speakers really are, you must use a top
quality analog front end. Here are some suggestions.-
Reference Phono Cartridge
State SVP-1 Phono Preamp & Line Stage
An interesting upgrade to the power amp is the stellar
Wavac EC300B, at around $25,000 MSRP. This amp has no
volume control, so must be used with a line preamp, or at
least, an attenuator.
The above equipment should serve as an example. There is
no shortage of excellent associated components, for use
with the Ikonoklast3 speakers. But if you want the best
available sound quality, a larger investment than you
might imagine is appropriate for your analog front end
We shall be happy to consult with you about assembling
your Ikonoklast3 complete system.
