I've rubbed off enough to have him appreciate quality reproduction.
Here is his system:
Amplifier Section of Original NAD 3020
Adcom 565 Preamp
Dennis Murphy modded Pioneer BS-22 and Dayton 10 in. powered sub - the monitors are wired through a simple high pass filter via series capacitor
Schiit Magna 2 DAC from MacBook Pro
I've also given a HK integrated amp and a Yamaha CR220 to music lovers and budding vinylophiles at work.
Same boat as you, but as I see it the whole system is composed of your leftovers. I have begged my son to take my leftovers and in our world is a killer system. They missed the Golden Age we came up in during the 70's that charted our course. Glad your kid is using your stuff.
Only the NAD and Adcom were mine. A nice integrated will replace them eventually, but the NAD amp rocks and the Adcom still works flawlessly and is dead quiet. For now.
I have a PSE Studio One preamp sitting in the closet as a backup that still works fine. I bought it along with a Studio Two power amp well over 20 years ago. The Denon DCD-1560 I used as a transport just recently quit after nearly 20 years of service, and that was used when I bought it.
My first decent preamp - an Apt Holman - still resides in my son's closet. To the best of my knowledge it works fine, although he doesn't use it. I was never able to get him interested in audio in the slightest.
