My only electronics purchase this year was a 64GB Sony Walkman.
What have you bought this year?
PC > AVI Neutron Five 2.1
Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
Dali Zensor 3s, Pioneer A-30 amp and Marantz M-CR610 system. The Marantz/Dali combo will be going with me into 2014 and beyond.
In 2014 I'd like a longer zoom lens for my Nikon DSLR and a tablet so that I can look at my favourite websites on the sofa and have the Marantz control app on a larger screen. I'd also like to get some sort of iPod for my train commutes, and I'll be due a new mobile.

Listening to MUSIC!
The Onkyo amp and AVI player below. The various disc spinners will all be replaced by one source in the sales though. Current thinking is a Marantz UD-7007.

Nearly forgot; Cyrus FM7.5 which should be here any day.
Of course, most of the above is s/h. My job is not well paid.
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
My Creek CD player, Arcam DAC, Epos speakers, and Rega P3 TT.
I also received a Nexus 7 for my birthday which is brilliant, and has amongst other things re-ignited my love of books. The Squeeze Commander app is a great way to operate my SBT from the comfort of my settee, whilst browsing or reading. My TV & Film viewing has reached an all time low level.
As 2014 approaches I have nothing on the horizon to buy, other than lots more music and books.

On the road: HP Elitebook 8540w, Sennheiser HD650, Bose Computer Mini Monitors.
Home: Denon DBP-2010, Humax, Panasonic Plasma, Monitor Audio ASB-2, AKG K240 Studio, Audio-GD NFB 12, Audio Pro Addon T8 active monitors, definitely no fancy cables.
Hardly a pauper's system, even second hand. Six months ago my amp, CD player and TT cost me a grand total of £225.
In my living room I'm using a Sony STR-DB930 and Denon CD player, Thorens TT. First two free and the Thorens for 50 quid plus some other bits and pieces. Good sound needn't cost a fortune.
