Amazing soundstage and imaging in a friend’s system is what got me into this hobby, and these little bookshelves deliver both in spades. Can’t play loud or super deep, but don’t need either here. Might upgrade someday, but I think these will always have a home somewhere in my house.
- Creek Audio Evolution 100A
Originally bought for a bedroom system where the slimline profile and all-in-one option with the DAC module was a major selling point, but this integrated amp and its class-G architecture has really impressed me.
- Creek Audio Ruby DAC Module
Upgraded from a chromecast audio to the CXN and it has been a rock-solid performer. Definitely deserves better than the Spotify stream I mostly feed it.
My first foray into vinyl. I wish it had a dustcover and bypass for the built-in phono stage, but it has been rock solid as the system has moved to multiple rooms and to a new house. Really came alive with the cartridge upgrade to the 2M Blue
Upgraded from the 2M Red that came with the Nomad table and the results were not subtle. Makes me wonder how much farther this lifestyle table can go.
A fun pair of headphones for when I can’t wake the wife and kid in the early morning hours. Also beautiful and comfortable. Look really cool on all the Zoom calls we’ve been stuck with the last couple years.
used as CD transport (very rarely)
Isoacoustic isolation pucks for my turntable
- JnB Audio Turntable Dust Cover
Custom acrylic dust cover found from a seller on eBay. Looks great and most importantly in a house with 2 dogs and a toddler, it works to keep the dust off the turntable.
