    Now that I have the new turntable, not thinking of changing anything, more to do with the law of diminishing returns with my listening room than anything else.
    If anything the integrated amp, could be upgraded to separate pre and power set up.
    The only certain purchase apart from more vinyl will be a RCM.
    Regards

    To not buy any more Hi-Fi (fat chance ).

    To thin down surplus gear (in progress).

    To finish the half dozen or so projects 'on the go'.

    To send off for repair a couple of items.

    To actually listen more and piss about with the system less.

    To not listen to anybody else's opinion (oh..., I do that already )

    Can't really think of anything I'd upgrade, I might invest in some kind of streamer but not that bothered.

    Like you Grant I'd like to reduce the amount of 'spare' gear I have but it's worth so little I can't be bothered to go through the hassle of selling it.

    Perhaps I'll resolve to not spend any more on kit this year. Will see.

    I've still got several turntables to think about - what to do with them, and I found an Ortofon VMS 30E stylus yesterday, so I guess there's a cartridge somewhere about too - unless it got thrown out in the fairly massive clearout earlier this year. That wouldn't have been deliberate, but might have happened by accident.

    Having looked at the lofts, I do wonder whether I could make a music room in at least one of them. That might be quite expensive, but I can cost it out for maybe not a lot. I'd want to have audio kit, plus probably electronic keyboards, mics etc up there, if I go ahead. It's a project which may not happen though, but it might be fun to speculate. I measured the most obvious usable area as around 375x480cm - before beams and other construction bits get in the way. Otherwise maybe empty the garage and use that instead. Probably none of these ideas will actually happen!

    A friend of mine put a cinema room in his house - the project may still be on-going, but it's kept him busy for a year or more, and while it may not have reduced his bank balance much, he's spent thousands on it so far. If I were to do such a project the major part would probably be getting the loft conversions done. Maybe the fun is in the planning and doing, rather than the end result.

    I made a wrong choice or two 😬, hopefully Iíve learned a thing or two but itís time to start afresh with new (new to me) amp, speakers, streamer and maybe cd transport.

    I'm going back to surround sound but with LR preout to my beloved Amptastic mini 1 and still using my Klipsch Kg4.5 as fronts.

    Means getting a centre, rears and height speakers of a different brand so how that will work out matching wise I don't know but all good fun and reversable if required.

    Got a great deal on a flagship pioneer av receiver. RRP in 2014 £1200, bought yesterday for £280 v pleased with that deal.

    Happy New Year to all on AOS.

    Well I have reached a system that sounds good to my ears and seems to work well together across genres, so it is time to stop thinking about other bits of hifi that might improve it, but probably won't unless I spend lots of money which I can't. So 2020 resolution is to stick with what I have and just do minor tweaks with isolation and possibly the odd cable but that is it.
