Description

Have been at this for only two years, unlike many others here.  Need to spend some time in this (first) 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! (Because I am a music lover.)
 
 I listen to jazz about 90% of the time nowadays.  Mostly acoustic piano trios, sometimes with a horn or two.  I throw in some rock, new wave, and even (well, especially) classical now and then. (Just added a list of my favorite composers, for those interested in broadening their horizons, or poking fun at mine.) Though I have three TTs I'm almost always digital now. (Correction, see update!)  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!  I am not worthy!  Just having fun, and it's always changing because there's so much neat stuff out there to try.  Right now I'm near-field with a TPA3255 and a couple of Harbeth 30.1s.  It's definitely working though as usual it's temporary.  Everything's temporary, for better or worse. Salut!

    You have the equivalent of an audio museum, all in top shape. You could have gone out and bought all new very expensive equipment to listen to, yet you didn't. You are enjoying what you must have had when you were younger earlier on in this hobby.

    Very admirable, congratulations and best regards. Stay well

    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.

    Awesome system dude, something this retired fixed income Vet can only dream about.

    Wow! Love it all...including the absence of a TV!  It must sound like “earphoria.” Thank you for sharing Archguy.

    Kindest regards,

    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
