It's been a while since I have updated my system. I've jumped on the computer as source bandwagon and have never been happier. Next purchase will be a higher end dac. Some slightly smaller more exotic speakers will be after that.
Floor standing, full range loud speaker, in rose nut veneer.

Citypulse 7.2x DAC with TCXO upgrade

Sony DVP S7700 ES
Former referance player for Sony.Built like a brick outhouse. Makes a great transport.

D.I.Y. Absorption panels
Basic 2 X 4 panels featuring 2 of compressed fiberglass covered in thick batting and an attractive fabric. Went 1 step further and framed the box with 3 5/8 crown molding and painted same color as walls. A very effective and decorative addition to room.
How much do you use your BX-1? I used to own one - great sounding and functioning deck. Now I have a CR3A from 1988 which still works perfect. I like to use it every couple of weeks or so or whenever the mood strikes as I have lots of great music on homemade Maxell tapes.
