Hello. 
I’ve enjoyed many nice systems over the years, owning products from Musical Fidelity, Mission, Bewitch, Theta, Audiolab, Mordaunt Short, Martin Logan, Nakamichi (Whise), Cyrus, Akai, and probably a few others. 
 

Currently, I’m really enjoying a couple of systems in my home. Both are using Cyrus electronics and Mission speakers. Sure, it’s not as esoteric as I’ve had previously but it sounds great and is reliable and easy to use. 
 

The main system is a modified Mac Mini into a DAC XP+ preamp, Mono X monoblocks and completely rebuilt Mission e83 speakers. It also has a modified Apple TV for movies which feeds into an AV Master 8 home theatre preamp and a couple more power amps. I also have a nice dual 10” sealed subwoofer. All digital cabling is Wireworld and all analogue cabling is Nordost.

I have a sitting room upstairs which has a much simpler system in it. Still Cyrus and Mission but I have also modified and rebuilt those speakers as well, also with Mundorf and Nordost.

First, I added Mission 750LE stand mount speakers (also rebuilt - I can’t help myself), then 782 floor standing speakers.

Thank you for viewing. I will answer any questions to the best of my ability if you care to ask.

very neat and clean setup! 

May i ask what modification you have done to the Apple TV?

Hi. 
I swapped out the 240V internals for 12V internals - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-TV4K-12V-power-supply-/184446864224?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292

 

I now use an iFi 12V SMPS for power. 
the picture and definitely the sound is much better than before.
