    Default Going Back in Time

    2014 has seen big changes to my system. At the start of the year my system was AN Dac One.1x sig, AN M-One, Croft Twinstar 1 and Proac Response 2S.






    Since then I've gone back in time to the 70's. Only the AN dac has survived the cull. I know I'm tempting fate but I think I have stumbled onto a system that I can live with for a long time. Just as well because I'm skint! The speakers and amp have been fully recapped and the Sony has had a wee service too. Now all my spare cash is going on vinyl.

    What are the speakers, Paul? They look like some type of Celestions

    You just need to scrap the Hifi rack & put your clobber on a sideboard in true vintage style

    You're quite right. I would if I had a bigger room. My mum has one that would be perfect - just need to wait for her to die then I will have the room and the sideboard

    You can get shorter ones. I have an original G-Plan it's around 6ft long

    Decor & Hifi have got more 60's since this pic was taken

    The Kenny is my pride and joy. It just sounds fantastic and its phono stage is sublime. The Kenwood/Trio Supremes are pretty rare in the UK but well worth snapping up if you happen to see one.

    TBH, the IMFs were a big surprise. I didn't expect much when I brought them home but they have really exceeded my expectations. Surprisingly they work well in a small room.
