Default The most modest gear of any member

Someone has to have the cheapest system and I think I have that woeful distinction:-
Wharfedale Linton Receiver.
Borrowed Vector 10's

I can enjoy music on it though and after all that makes me privileged.

Default Addition

I received a second hand Akai G10 cassette deck yesterday, to add to my receiver, sounds beautifully sweet through the Linton. I know no better yet but am expecting to be corrupted by DIY Audio.
In the site's spirit, I am making some homemade inter-connects, good fun.

My most listened to system is all Linn as it fits nicely into our little den -- LP-12, LK100, Mimik, Kudos, biamped Kelidh's and a Velodyne subwoofer.

The system which sounds best is all DIY -- a hotted up Adcom GFP-565 preamp into a pair of Pass F5s, "His Majesty's Noise" RIAA amplifier, a pair of Thor's, Pioneer TT, Denon cart, and Sony DVD/SACD player.

Default My System

Simple enough, but not too simple. Does what it needs and no more. Like a direct line to the artists themselves. I try to play "Direct to Disc" recordings whenever possible. The emotion comes thru like nothing else.

My main system is XM through a Bluetooth transmitter. I have a "Y" adaptor on the XM unit with audio cables ran from it to 2 different locations. (One to the kitchen and one to my screen porch) If I want to listen inside, I use a Bluetooth transmitter in the kitchen, which covers most of the house or move the transmitter to the porch and listen outside..

I have "big" power (Lepai 2020A) but mostly use my 5 volt amp creations. The Bluetooth transmitter covers a nice radius around the porch so I can set up at many locations pointing towards the porch. (My speaker tuning studio) I'll critique/tune on a speaker for days like this. I don't have any test equipment, just my ears..

The wife plays DJ sometimes. I'll connect a portable CD player to the Bluetooth transmitter and let her go. She has a lot of fun with that..

Ain't gotta lot but I'm happy..
