I've had a LOT of gear over the years,and finally settled with the Kenwood KR 9600.I have two of them.Tomorrow,I will add a pair of Infinity Q2's to the downstairs system,and that will do it for me.Just wanted some big Infinity's.
well... got the ESL-57s years ago; still accumulatin' junk. Oh, well...
A pair of AR-9 speakers - NEW IN THE BOX - that I find in a Goodwill store for $40 each. After I move the speakers to my car I find an early Pass amplifier buried in behind where the speakers were - NEW IN THE BOX for $25.
My rear springs are sagging as I drive home.
And all the original pressing Led Zeppelin albums - still in their shrink wrap - for $1 each.
You're talking to us from that jet in your avatar, aren't you!:yes:
the Kenwood Supreme 500 integrated that I got at Goodwill for $50.
Oh yea. I would have to choose a couple of contenders. The early Meridian 105 monos, the G.A.S.500 Ampzilla(heck, all the Zillas) and the Acoustat TNT200 and 120. All of which I still have. Looking for a Harman Kardon CitationXX. Best of the best
Anything and everything Shindo
I think for me would be the best Sherwood tube amp made and AR 1 with the super tweeters to go with them or some AR LST speakers.
I think I'd have to go with the Sanyo Plus 200 receiver,only 4 made!
I'll take a Technics SE-A5000 amp and a pair of Klipschhorns, and worry about everything else later.
She's got a real pretty face, that one.
Where do you people live that has al the great gear at Goodwill? All I ever find at ours is crap like Yorx or Soundesign.
And is that a Valkyrie (spelling?) in your avatar?
I've got 2 I think fit the bill; Pioneer SX 1980, Polk SDA SRS's('85). I just picked up a semi-Grail piece yesterday. A Concept 16.5. A pair of Mac MC 2500's would do it for me.
Barclay Digital F1 Gold
TECHNICS SE- A1 ......Built for eternity only at precise order, 1,000,000 yens in 1977 .....51 kg , 2x350 w at 8 ohms......i wiil be lucky if i see one in my lifetime......
Stax DMA-X2. 600 watts, 115 pounds per amp, $40 grand in 1990.
Among the rarest of them all.
@TECH---NICS Welcome to AK! I have visited a guy, he has 3 of them, as well as the pre 2 or 3 RS 1800. Well. He has / had everything Technics. I love that dude. He isn't very active anymore, people hated on him - they thought he was showing off. Awesome collection!
Ars Vivendi is his screen name on the german hifi-forum.de - He does answer PMs within a month or so.
But in that light, yes, I agree.
This is my grail. Because: Unobtainable to me currently. Only thing Ars doesn't have is those speakers. Everything else, I have heard and played with. SO DAMN COOL.
Me? Only enough for this Technics Pro System:
