2014 and 2015 - What happened for you and what next?

Recommended Posts

IN

Jolida Glass FX II Dac

Airport Express for streaming

Zingali Overture .3 Speakers

Spotify Premium Account

OUT

Harbeth C7

BK Sub

Tannoy Supertweeters (might have been a bit hasty with that sale)

No plans to add any large components this year as I'm pretty pleased with the set up but you know how it is. Maybe try some tube rolling with the DAC and rip all my CD's to a music server.

Quite like to get those supertweeters back!

Cheers

Privately I sold my IO1 cartridge for an IO Gold and just landed myself a nice 301 Grease bearing

Also landed a mint Thorens TD124.

We got a new kitchen radio too. :)

It's been a busy year. I'm hoping to play with carts this year, as well as re-plinth the 401 and possibly the Lenco. Some experiments with the preamp and possibly crossovers may take place... and of course there's the second system...

Well, the year started very well and I got to the 10th and had not changed anything but then I saw an advert for a pair of Quad 989,s and could not resist the temptation. Anybody want a pair of 988's in original boxes?

Out go Avid deck, 300b monoblocs and lowther TP1 horns and in with punchy Technics Sp10 and KRK Rokit RP 10 s three way actives. I never want a deck which is propelled by a rubber band again, they are hopeless.

A move to a large house and room in 2014 meant a necessary change of speakers and a bit of a raising of funds.

In:

B&W 801 series 80

Klark Jade 1 active monitors

Kinshaw perception DAC

Beresford Caiman 2 DAC

Denon Pma-s10ii integrated

JBL L90 studio monitors.

Out:

Thorens td125

Origin live conqueror

Bryston bp25

Bryston 4b SST 2

Shahinian obelisks

Leema Agena phono stage

The Beresford dac is on pre duty with the Klarks in the kitchen system.

The Kinshaw DAC runs in to a denon pma850 and the JBL's in the bedroom.

The 801's are fed by my nakamichi pre-power combo, with its integrated phono stage, in the lounge and my Bryton DAC.

The PMA s10ii is on loan to a friend in Brum but not for long!
