My systems journey

Hi all, just thought I'd share with you my current system (per sig) and how I got there over the years.

 

1st system:

Technics SLPG480a CD player

Audiolab 8000a (still got)

Kef Reference 102/2 (still got)

(both amp and speakers were got for tiny amounts from my Uncle who was upgrading, Cd was all I could afford at 15 but did surprisingly well)

 

Since then I've had the following in various configurations/rooms...

 

Marantz CD67se

Arcam Alpha One cd

Arcam Alpha 5+ cd

Arcam Alpha 7se cd

Arcam Alpha 5 amp

Kenwood DM5090 mini disc

B&O LX2502N TV

B&O Beovox ???

Tannoy 60? bookshelf speakers

B&W DM620i floor standers

B&W DM601s3

Sony DVP-S525

Sony DVP-NS400D

Yamaha DSP-E492

Yamaha NSC-103

 

All the way through to my current set up. Nearly everything has been bought through part exs coming into the shop I used to work in years ago, or via eBay.

Best bargain (apart from the 8000a and Kefs as near gifts)? Arcam Alpha 5+ cd player and Alpha 5 amp for £25 each back in 2000, and my current MA GR20's for £400 a couple of years ago.

 

Any comments / questions on stuff old and current welcome!

It certainly looks the business (especially the DV79 Wink )

Haha, thanks! Wink

Just to add that they aren't Black Ravioli under the rack legs - just cut out bits of Ikea placemats to stop the floor getting scratched when sliding it around!
