I'm really happy with my system, it took me a solid 4 months of burning in, A B testing, and to-ing and fro-ing from hi-fi shops to get it right. I'm at the point where I can just sit back and enjoy, without being too analytical.
However, my only itch is with my DAC... it's a Firestone Fubar II. I can't help but feel that it's not pushing the performance of my Nait XS to the max. So all the recent talk of the Rega DAC has got my itch burning again. I'll have to bring one home for a trial and see what it gives me.
Otherwise, I'm definitely finished for a long long time
Well compared to some here I've spent pocket money on my system. But the only way I upgrade now is when something goes pop.
The CD player recently went pop - so after help from here I got a new one. Next maybe the wireless headphones - all bound up with superglue and tape - when they go pop I will be back for help. When the stylus starts wearing out I'll look at getting a better one.
I've dabbled with small selection of separates and all in ones, but i think i'm not really that into hifi for the sake of hifi. I like 'good' quality music and if space and money were available I'd happily have floorstanders and an amp to achieve this, but I've been thinking more and more that my music and movie needs will be adequately fulfilled by a Q Acoustics TV2 attached to my TV. Thus films and TV and games would all benefit, an auxilliary 3.5mm from a laptop will provide all the music I need, maybe an airport express would make it neater.
