  1. Thanks for the encouragement although I should clarify that it is my knowledge that is stuck in the 90s, my CD player is just of this century, a Genki. For me though my box is rather warm, comfortable and inviting so I shall probably maintain the quo until something goes bang..
  2. Not much to say really, I'd been interested in hifi for a few years and had a moderate system that was being upgraded now and then as my meagre funds would allow. I had a Myst TMA3 amp (actually still have it!) but one channel was intermittent so rather than repair it I visited a shop a few doors from where I worked in Chiswick (London) and auditioned a Naim and a Linn Majik. The Linn sounded so much better with an LP12 and Keilidhs so with a 0% deal it was mine! That was 1995. Despite having the itch periodically nothing happened until last year when my old Gale speakers finally gave up (best part of 30 years so not too bad). After toying with numerous scenarios including getting rid of the lot and not bothering I went mad (for me) and gave ebay a good hiding and bought the system I'd wanted for years, all Linn bar the TT. Rather a modest system compared with many on here but I'm so pleased with it, great sound and I love the simplicity of the LK box, understated but business like. It's bringing back the enjoyment of listening to music again for me and about time. An absolute bargain of a system

    Gold seemed a bit more specialist than I needed (lots of remixes) and rare, poor availability and expensive so I went for: I got a great deal from Music Magpie, just over £3 delivered!

  15. Like the OP, for me it would have to be a house move first. Nothing outrageous, just detached and with a seperate living room for music (but not a dedicated room). My existing system whilst well out of date, would be absolutely fine, just more room to expand the CD and vinyl collection. I would upgrade my TT though, which might require a change to the phono stage and preamp, oh well, might as well change the lot at this rate! Actually I've no idea about hifi these days, my knowledge for what it amounts to is stuck in the 90s so I don't have any big dreams or aspirations. I'll get back in my box now...
