No changes to my system in the last year or so. Trying to force myself to stop the urge to constantly upgrade and just listen to what I have...
I did cave a few months ago though and bought a small run of NOS Western Electric speaker cable as described in the write-up by Jeff Day off Ebay for about $100.
The cables are almost laughable physically by audiophile standards. Spagetti thickness with a simple tin coating on the copper strands, a white sheath between the copper and the red cloth. I stripped the raw ends and just attached them to my BP300 amp and speakers expecting yet another vintage disappointment - i.e. grainy compressed sound, no depth, thin, etc. I had a negative expectation bias going in you could say... Boy, I couldn't have been more wrong! BIG bold sound, fantastic tone, punchy base, and just so natural for lack of a better word. I am blown away...I guess the folks at Western Electric figured out a long time ago what worked well on the low powered tube amps of the day. I am having a lot of fun with these cables its a cheap experiment for any of you with SET amps you might be in for a shock..
Added a Pure Sound P10 MM phono and T10 MC transformer as an inexpensive way to have a dedicated phono stage for the Garrard 301. The P10 is run through my Tron Ultimate line stage.
Very solid for such a reasonable priced combination. I am hearing good dynamics, bass and soundstage. Very quiet operation with my SPU Meister Silver. I have heard other Pure Sound gear and its all great frankly. Huge bargain in audio IMO.
