Hey Audiogoners,

It's been several years since I uploaded a photo so here's the latest.

Still enjoying my classic, oldie goldie equipment as much as ever, with no audio upgrades planned. Buy once and be happy, without chasing the holy grail, continues to be my motto.

Went all digital last year saying goodbye to my LP12 and a myriad of pristine vinyl. iPod has changed me forever.

Recently upgraded the television and blu-ray player.

Nonetheless, all this equipment is just a means to an end to massive music enjoyment. I do not need an expensive system to enjoy music as I've learned with other, much less expensive, audio gear, in other rooms of the house.

Feel free to share your comments.

16f4...thanks so much!  You summarized my approach perfectly.

My wife designed the cabinet when we built our home back in '96.  At the time, we only had a 32" CRT TV so now we can only fit a 43" flat screen...but no biggie as a low level TV watcher.

Happy listening!


Love your music philosophy.  Why spend all your time and money chasing equipment, it just takes time away from music. Buy good quality stuff that will last you a long time and get on with it. And such a beautiful cabinet!



Indeed! It's about music enjoyment, not spending money like a drunk, only to come full circle. Seen numerous posts like this over the years.

I've heard massively expensive systems all over the country and I'm rarely impressed at how much better they sound than mine. Pretty crazy stuff!


I really like how everything is ceiling mounted!

Seriously though a nice "vintage" set-up


Looks like you're heels over head (literally ;-) happy with the system.


if ur happy n enjoying it all, that's all that matters.
