Need to spend some time in this room and listen! My 'extra' systems are actually nicer than my main systems because I listen all the time and don't want to over-use the good stuff! Yes I know that's slightly crazy. Also notice -- No TV!
BTW, I listen to jazz about 95% of the time nowadays. Mostly acoustic piano jazz, sometimes with a horn or two. I throw in some rock, new wave, and even classical now and then. Though I have two TTs I'm almost always digital now. For the most part, give me a piano, a standup bass, a drum set and maybe a trumpet or two and I'm a happy man. Oh yeah and of course a suitable beverage for a jazz club.
Thanks guys. Several of my components were purchased second-hand so the overall expense isn't really crazy by high-end standards. Additionally, well-selected pieces from manufacturers like McIntosh and Accuphase hold their value well so when it comes time to re-sell you'll find that the overall cost of ownership can be surprisingly moderate. Everything you see was purchased within the past two years because I only got back into audio in July 2017. Except the Zenith--I've had that for years.
I tried that and could only see some items and you have a lot of stuff in your photos. What speakers are those, that silver amp, the tube amp? How is the surround processor and tube amp use in your system? Thanks
