    I had a post a little while back about the wife and I both getting the upgrade bug. We upgraded to a halo p5 pre amp and then added a set of Martin Logan ethos speakers. Well after having the Martin logans for a few weeks we decided to try a different set of speakers that would fit better in our room. Picked up a pair of PSB Imagine T2. The wife loved how they looked and after getting them home and hooked up we both love how they sound. BUT we didn't stop there... a couple days later we brought home a parasound A21 amp and I got a good will score with a nice pioneer elite blu ray/ CD player. 2 more upgrades to do. We want to get a nicer turntable and also a blue sound vault 2. Then I think we may be done at least for a little while. IMG_2555.JPG IMG_2556.JPG IMG_2557.JPG

    Nice. Must say that I love the Parasound... Do you prefer the psb over the ML?

    Yes I like the PSB speakers better. I think our room and where I had to place the martin logans really hampered there performance.
     
  4. Usually, divorce happens when women get the upgrade bug.

    One piece of advice. Don't upgrade the wife. You have a keeper. :biggrin:

    I know all too well.

    To the OP: I'm jealous as my wife (when I was married) HATED everything I liked. EVERYTHING.

    Last time my wife got the upgrade bug, I am the one who got served the divorce papers. :D And I had the last laugh, since the "upgrade" ended up cheating on her, with someone 20 years younger.

    This worked out well, since my "SO" and I are not married, and we each have our own finances. My new toys are probably noticed, sometimes commented on, but draw praise. Works well for me, too, since I am no longer stuck in a basement with my system, and I don't find doilies and clutters draped over everything.

    Now if she would just be sympatico on the music, things would be idea... ;)

    Nice rig, @Dynamicmad !
