A work in progress for many years, the system sounds so good now that I’m afraid to change anything. But the HAP is somewhat dated so it’s probably time for a change, a streamer/server/DAC will start the upgrade process once again. The HAP is limited to WiFi streaming Spotify and Internet radio but has 700+ CD’s (ALAC) on its 1TB HDD. I like its convenience but would like additional streaming services and a better DAC. It sounds pretty good so I hope upgrading is the right move.
I’m on my second round of Bryston and VPI gear, I like the sound, I like the dependability. An easy choice. The 7T’s are the latest addition, really wonderful sounding loudspeakers that work well with the 4b3. They turned out to be a great choice. I hope I can do as well coming up with a new digital front end.
Few things in life are as pleasant as relaxing with some treasured music playing on a nice sounding stereo system. Life is good!
