Audio for 2019
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:47:43 AM »
  So what are we lusting for in 2019 ? New server ? Amp ? speaker ? For me the long neglected room. Take some measurements, treat accordingly and be happier.

For me it's all about making a few projects some to life. For example a specialize eccentric tracking weight device. A new amp for DIY. And other fun things.

1. Dave is making me a tonearm pod- claimed to be better than just the lead stuffed ones that Ive made.   
2. Recap an old Fisher 400 receiver that's been on a shelf in the garage for too long.

Well 2018 was a big year for me. I'm kind of tapped out. I bought a Wells Audio Innamorata amp, Auralic DAC, MIT Speaker cables and built a pair of open baffle speakers. I think 2019 will bring a few tweaks and finalizing my speakers, with minimal if any component changes.

Not lusting for much really, just getting my “audio house” in order. Sell the Mark Audio speakers and the Basis Ovation TT and Graham arm. Maybe buy 1 or 2 small subs for the LS 50s. Maybe have Danny test and mod the LS 50s.

In no particular order, I need new longer usb and rca cables, iec and plugs for cable projects, an REL sub, service for my amp, furniture, an entry level turntable, a phono preamp, and a music server/streaming solution, and an Uber Buss. Basically a whole new system, if budget permits. :lol:
