Hearing a superior system - what does one do?
As hi fi nerds we all like to hear other people's systems. Being a solid Naim fan I've heard other systems that are better than mine, but I've not particularly lusted after them.
Having recently heard a colleague's SuperUniti streamed off a UnitiServe into Rega speakers (not sure which) I was blown away. I didn't even dare put my kit on for a couple of days and when I did, then sure enough, by comparison is doesn't sound that great.
So what does one do?
a) sell a kidney and buy better kit?
b) Sit in the Ford Focus for half an hour listening to the gawd-awful car stereo to make yours sound awsesome again?
d) do (what I did) silly little things like tighten up all the screws on one's speakers in the hope they'll suddenly sound much better.
Therapy ideas welcomed.
