    Audiophiles

    Hey so, I am big into audio gear, not sure about others hear but I will ask anyway. Anyone here into audio gear (not recording gear).

    If were talking car stereos, I used to be. Got 2 12" type R alpines with a bass booster in ported box. Alpine dash and alpine amp. My stereo set up is more expensive than my car when I bought it (cheap car)

    Well I used to be big into car audio. I also ran 2 12" type-Rs at one point haha! Moved to Sundown audio after that, then gave up.

    Home audio is where I live now, specifically high-end headphone listening. Running a Aune solid-state amp/DAC driving a pair of 600 ohm Beyerdynamic DT990s. Spectacular sound! Eventually grabbing a woo audio tube amp and possible a pair of Stax headphones.

    Right on I've yet to invest in home audio not until I get a bigger tv. But I do have a gnarly sub system for my laptop. Like a damn dj booth in my room

    Not really into it but have always owned good separates with proper speakers, have a naim\spender set up at the moment.

    Both British made;

    Naim Audio | Home Stereo Equipment | High End Sound | High-fidelity | Hi-fi System

    Spendor Audio Systems

    Re: Audiophiles

    I don't have an elaborate home system but I'm still using my old Nikko amp and Bozak floor speakers bought in the 80's, and they still sound good.

    yea a good amp and speakers will always be that, even at 20+ years old they will still have better sound than most ipod docks etc i see in shops today, think my speaker wire alone cost more than most peoples hifi in its day. My gear must be 7 years old now and i'm sure ill still have the amp and speakers for another 7. The source may change though but i still like to have something physical to play ie cd's, ipods for me are still only for the car but like slayer's modern set up i might have to give in to a dac\lossless source sooner or later, did i get that last bit right slayer...LOL.

    Well music will only be as good as the source. Lossless and a nice dac/amp is good. My setup ran only about 500ish and blows away a lot of setups that cost more

    Re: Audiophiles

    I don't have anything elaborate or too fancy. Mostly older stuff that has a nice warm sound. I use the speaker setup from Eno's ambient 2 album though which I've used for a pretty long time. Its a cheap yet effective way to add a little more atmosphere and a primitive "surround sound" effect.
