2011 upgrade dreams

    Well, I'm not much of a serial box changer, and I don't see things getting much better at work, but I do have a beady eye on one or 2 things. What are your upgrade dreams for 2011?

    Me - Compact 7 ES2, auctioned off for ES3's or Super HL5's (moving in March)

    Leben CS300 - for a CS600.

    CEC TL51xr- keep but maybe get a DAC

    QED 79 strand for QED 80 strand.

    As you can see, I'm closed minded - it's safe.

    That should leave me broke.

    Maybe a Greenstreet subchassis for my LP12.

    The Vivid sub-chassis and armboard are on their way and the recapping (some teflons) and reresistoring (some Vishay/ Charcrofts) of my P10 with Salas Mosfet HT shunt regulation and power supply in a separate box should be done by February with a bit of luck.

    Things I'm considering:
    - A valve pre-amp in between my processor and power amp
    - New mains spur for the system
    My system does sound pretty good already, just looking at the icing on the cake now.

    sq225917 Bit of this, bit of that

    a golden ratio listening room with short wall of minimum 15 feet. A sloping roof with forty five degree intersection with the back wall and thousands of pounds worth of relationship threTening acoustic treatment... or some sort of dac, digital pre-amp, room correction box that does it all with decent quality A to D built in.

    Don't worry about it Raj, I'm seeing a woman older than me. She's nearly old enough for "classic" status, certainly I don't need to pay for a tax disc.:p

    Onto the hif, I want to finish off the UberDeck that came to the bake off, and I'll fit a second arm while I'm at it. A nice 3009 out of the bits box.

    johnfromnorwich even my wife noticed the dif..

    Still mulling over phono stage replacement. If I can find a Quasar at the right price, then maybe that. New cart will probably be required too, prolly an OC9 unless something else an beat it for the price.
  18. AdamWysokinski

    AdamWysokinski Mmm... music...

    More music :)
    And maybe a Black Ittok if I manage to find one..
