2011 Review and Confessions

Ok .. fess up ... now that 2011 is drawing to a close, what did you end up buying this year to add to your hifi collection and what did you end up getting rid of to make space for your new components? 

My guilty treats are as follows:

 

IN

Squeezebox Touch (x2)

Wadia 151 Power DAC

MF VDAC II

Creative XFi HD USB ADC/DAC (for vinyl recording)

 

OUT

Nothing yet ... just moving things from room to room  :oops:

More innies than outies so far ... looks like we are all holding on to our hifi ... silicon heaven (where all the calculators go) or that auction site will be all the poorer. I would like some of my ex equipment to move on to a nice home, but can't let them go just yet.

Electronic stylus balance 

Knosti Disco Antistat

Some wires.....

Out:

Notice how more stuff came in than went out. This is typical of my hobbies(eg motor bikes) in that purchases are often accumulative rather than replacement. Mrs Rob disapproves of this.
