Ahh, finally. Having started about 6 years ago with a Cambrige A1, a pair of Eltax Monitor IIIs and a 10 year old Technics CD player (which is still working, now aged 16) I've finally completed my first "proper" budget system today, now consisting of: Cambridge 540C v.2 Pro-ject Debut III Marantz PM6002 Pro-ject Phono Box Mk.2 Pro-ject Head Box Mk.2 Eltax Monitor III Grado SR60s Soundstyle Z2 speaker stands Pixel PXHS30 rack QED Silver Anniversary Biwire QED Qunex 2 interconnects All supplied through a Tacima CS929 Mains block (no comments please) Ok, I know it's no giant killer, but I'm enjoying it a lot. Would've got a lot further than this by now, but geographical and travel considerations were the main constraints (there's only so much stuff you can take as hand luggage, and choosing between an amp and a CD player can be a tough call). The only surviving component of my original set up is the Eltaxs, which I know could do with being upgraded at this point. However, since they've served me so well over 6 years and 3 different countries, I'd feel somewhat treacherous if I got rid of them. Besides, I still really like their sound.
