What stereo(s) do you listen to? What do you want?

post #1 of 2376
Thread Starter 
I am curious what audio gear members here have. No judgments here - anything from iPods to large home theater systems welcome.

What do you have now?

What do you dream about owning?

Don't have anything now - just threw out Kenwood gear last week.. it was crap, one of the speakers was blown, and I was ready for it to be gone. Not so much as a dream as it is a plan - Dynaudio Focus 200C, 220, 140 Earthquake Cinenova Grande 5 (maybe 7-ch) Denon 4308Ci Truly integrating my HTPC into a home theatre SVS Ultra sub Coupled with my Sony 60" A3000.

I want some killer styrofoam Dixie cups.

An old Sony DB-series receiver, which I'm using as a pre-amp.
Old adcom 5 channel amp.
NHT speakers all around (VT2 fronts, a VT-series center, and some SB-something rears).

I don't really listen to music on that system. I mostly listen to music on headphones, either Grado SR60s, or (usually) some Shure canalphones (the ~150-200$ ones, either E2c or E3c).

I have a 30gb video iPod for travel (I use Grados as well) and a home system of Maggie speakers and Audio Research electronics with SACD and vinyl as sources.

I downgraded several years ago to a modest setup that I am content with until the kids are old enough that I don't have to worry about them destroying it.

Music Hall CD25 CD Player
Music Hall MMF5 Turntable
NAD C320BEE Amplifier
PSB 5T Tower Speakers

Linn LP 12 Turntable w/ Ittock toneArm
1959 HH Scott Integrated Receiver
Linn Tukan Speakers

Analog and tubes rule!

I avoid digital music whenever possible, just like some members here might avoid synthetic fabrics and black suits.

Small and sweet:

Rotel 971 CD Player
Audio Analogue Puccini Amp
Role Audio Kayak Speakers
iPod

I'd love to try some smaller Magnepan speakers someday.

Sonick,

Have you seen the new Luxman gear? It's beautiful and sounds great.

I already have my mint low serial # Rogers LS3/5a's, thanks to the Goodwill. My Want List: JA Mitchell Odyssey turntable McIntosh MA6900 Integrated Amp And if I ever did want some larger speakers, I'd opt for the Krell Lat. 1s

Most of this system was built a looong time ago - I'm sort of out of the game these days because my audio habit has taken a backseat to my clothing and entertaining-the-girlfriend-at-expensive-restaurants habits. But anyways, here goes:

B&W Nautilus 805 speakers
Plinius 2100i integrated amp
Meridian G07 CD player
Transparent Audio Wave 100 interconnects and bi-wire speaker cable

I occasionally think about getting a Shunyata Hydra or an entry-level vinyl setup as my next steps, but I really need to get into a better house with a dedicated listening room before I do any of that.

We don't agree very often, but that's my favorite Queen album.


I just bought a used Rega P2 turntable (thanks to all who gave advice on that, btw), so I'll soon be playing my old records for the first time in years.
