RE: So what?

Posted by Story on March 14, 2023 at 07:53:31:

whining and griping? Ultra hi-end? There was a time not long ago when it was just Hi-End and before that Hi-Fi. I'm listening RIGHT NOW to my antiquated Quads with a new acquisition, a Yamaha integrated for $250, an amp with the new Galium Nitride transistors. Broken in now and it's a toss up between this and a Quad current dumping amp. Both perspectives are interesting, a soundfield WAY beyond wide and the other wide and DEEP.

Most will admit that achieving a very nice reproduction won't require spending many thousands. I like listening to music NOT SO MUCH equipment, the quest that alludes many.
