And now for something completely different.

It surprises me that the Wam continues to allow him to promote products he sells in discussion posts which historically has always been forbidden.

It's a mystery.

I wouldn’t mind ending up again with what I have now, and I don’t regret the journey I took to get here. I’ve gone through quite a bit of kit over the past decade or so in 5 different rooms. The rooms had the biggest impact on my enjoyment of the system by a long shot.

So if I could start over, I would start by choosing my ideal room first, and if I did not end up with what I have today, it would probably be with a simpler but all Audio Note system, largely for the synergy of having a complete AN system.

In saying that, I think I am now in the position that if funds did become available, I would upgrade vertically in the same range as what I already have

Starting from scratch, it would be extremely difficult to justify vinyl as a primary source. The cost of building up a reasonable record collection is so prohibitive.  I might just have to swallow hard and go digital, but make sure I match it with components that add copious amounts of distorting colouration to compensate. 😀

I reckon my system would be pretty close to what I have now.  The only thing I’d change if starting again is not being in such a hurry, and waiting for kit to come up second hand, rather than buying new and wasting a packet when moving it on.

Very nice topic plastic penguin :)

Looked very straight forward in the beginning . And I've typed a couple of replies and deleted them all again. Goes to show I really need a introspection into what I really want.

But I've had my fair share of some very stupid mistakes on the way. I fondly hope I won't repeat them again.

I'm a dyed in the wool vinyl head, primarily because of the higher sound quality but alsob because of the investment in the software as well as the hardware.

If I was starting over and somebody could show me a reasonably priced, easy to set up and use digital set-up, that sounded as good as vinyl, it would be dots and bleeps all the way :)

I did go for “Something completely different” a while back.

Was: Turntable, C.D. Player and Tuner into Pre-amp and Power Amp into Large Floor Standers.

To: All C.D.’s ripped to a SSD into Roon Nucleus with Tidal into Mytek Brooklyn DAC into Dutch & Dutch 8c’s.

Best and most compact system I have ever had!
