    I’ve got to reduce my stash of audio equipment before I find something really awesome at goodwill and I’m told no because “you already have too many speakers”
    I in fact found a pair of Bowers and Wilkins 800 series bookshelf speakers, and my mom told me no. I tried to convince her they were worth hundreds of dollars, not the 50 they were asking, and she didn’t believe me. I showed her the speakers online later and we went back but they were already gone.
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
    An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Good things don't last more than a few hours around here.

    But I stopped going because I really don't have the space to even rotate my stuff anymore. I need a storage unit! A big double size storage unit! Like 40x30. :D
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Don't get a storage unit. The second you have to get a storage unit, you are admitting that you have a hording problem.

    I just checked the prices of storage units and I won't be renting one. They want about 90.00 a month for a 5x15. That would clear a lot of space for me but I think trying to sell would be the smarter financial move for me at this point!

    So, I did a thing today....

    8dwl0h1cf55g.jpg

    Boxes are intact and original IC, also came with a Euro spec NAD 7155, a pioneer single deck, a pro-ject table and some Goodwill fodder (DVD player and VHS)

    Was really hoping when he said SDA they were 2A/Bs, but I'm ok with this ;)

    Paid a bit more than I wanted, but it was still fair. Just need to find a counter weight for the pro-ject. It's my first "real" table. I'm excited. Can't wait to start the upgrades :D

    They are, save for the grill snags and some vinyl veneer shrinkage. They'll be getting really wood veneer soon enough.
