+1 - The music's the thing

Roughly 7,000 LPs, 2700 CDs, 500 45s and few hundred cassettes versus a pretty decent sounding vintage system put together for about $1000.

It took a bit of time, patience and online research to check out the pieces before buying. I'm sure it won't impress those here with deep pockets and champagne tastes, but I can loose myself in the music easily with this system. I've also purchased a used VPI 16.5 RCM for $450. That changed my life.

All in all, I tend to have a hankering for new sounds more than expensive boutique equipment. Having said that, I do lust after some old JBL studio monitors, like the 4315s, and suitable amplification.
