    HiFi Jan 2018 by Shaun Haselden, on Flickr


    January 2018 and I think that the end is nigh...! I don't feel there is anywhere else left to go.

    I'll maybe see how I feel later in the year and whether or not I feel the need for another change. Please ignore the TV. I don't count that as 'real' entertainment.

    Are you ready to face the final curtain
    Are you clear
    Have you stated your case.
    are you certain.
    Have you lived a life that's full
    Have you traveled each and every highway
    there might be more than this, who knows
    But if you want, do it your own way.

    Looks a good place to stop man.

    Lets see how you get on with the cold turkey, when will the withdrawal symptoms hit?

    Myself I'm almost there too and can't quite believe it. At last to be able to concentrate on my R53 and my wife.

    Well thank you everso much for your comments you guys. I was here a long time ago Hi-Fi wise but then the shit hit the fan and I sold the whole lot. It is really nice to be back where I belong. The only thing I long for now is a power amp or integrated that has a bit of power but is class A like a Sugden. It could happen next year but I doubt it. Life has so many more important things to take care of.

    Looks great. Those B&W look about right for the room size. I really like them, nearly got some myself, think they were the next bigger model up from yours, but then dropped on the JM Labs which are the same basic idea.

    But you really should run your telly through the hi-fi. Optical out from telly to the DAC - will cost you a tenner. Those flat screen tellys have the worst sound of anything that makes sound.

    Yeah it's crazy. It's Italian television crazy.

    The trouble with being finished with the main system (as I am, barring a bit of tinkering) is the urge to go off and start playing with second systems (or third, or ...)
    Main: Speakers 'RFC' Tannoy Canterburys / custom crossovers with Tannoy ST25 supertweeters; Amp - Radford STA100; Pre EAR 912; Vinyl: Thorens TD124 MkII + Ikeda IT345-CR1 9 inch and Ikeda IT-407 12 inch tonearms; Cartridges Stereo - Miyajima Madake, Miyajima Takumi, Ikeda 9TT, SAEC/Excel C3; Mono - Miyajimas - Zero 0.7, Premium 1.0, Edison '78' 4.0 conical, and Shure M44 strapped for mono with several Expert Stylus conicals for different eras of 78s; Phono stage and SUT from EAR 912 + Miyajima ETR-Mono SUT; Esoteric Sound Re-Equalizer for equalisation of early mono and 78, switchable in from tape loop; Digital: Audio Note CDT2/II transport, heavily modded AN Kit DAC + Mutec MC3+USB.

    Study: Speakers - Tannoy DC6; Amp: Pass Aleph 'Mini'; tube preamp - Gate Audio tube; Vinyl: Garrard 401 with AT1503 Mk I tonearm and vintage Ortofon SL-15e with matching Ortofon 2-15k SUT; Phono Stage from Gate Audio preamp; Digital - Trichord Genesis III CDP + Arcam rBlink.
