Hi all

Has anyone got plans to purchase any HiFi gear this year?

Don't think I will be, depends on work situation. Although a friend is bringing over a Lindemann music player for me to hear tomorrow!

Sadly my main hifi may be going back in its boxes and in to storage for a couple of years. Our third child is due in April and space has become a real issue... *cray2*

My plan was starting today. Return H160 and pick up Rost from Rick. Sadly he's not well so will have to await his return.

Once that's complete I'm waiting for H190. After that I'll continue improving my digital end. I'm happy with speakers so that's going to be one constant.

It's all fine tuning really. I can't see myself going through as much gear as I did in 2017.

brought forward to either this week or next because my current amp has developed a major issue (ie its stopped working) and as its out of warranty it will probably cost more to repair, so its easier for me to buy new (or poss look on ebay for a good secondhand one).

Congratulations !

I don't know if it will be of any help to you but I am willing to foster your PMC's and give them a good home until such time you can use them again, all FOC *angel* .

Rest assured they will be well looked after and regularly fed with good music. *biggrin*

Is all I will get for the next couple of years. Iam happy with my present setup. And any improvements from here will be scary expensive. So no new boxes on the horizon until something breaks.

But I could be tempted by the Nord mono blocks in my vulnerable moments :)

I’m eyeing up some PMC floorstanders. Very interested/tempted...

Need to wait until 10/10 onwards though as made a stupid bet with Mrs amor that I wouldn’t buy any new kit for a year. Then she wrote the date on the calendar laughing!!!

On the birght side this gives you more time to save and/or increase your budget - that's assuming you need to.

Nothing on the horizon, but never say never. I've got an itch to try a pair of EB2's (the originals, not the new Arcaydis ones) so if a pair came up at the right price (ie. at a price that meant I could sell them on without loss in case I didn't get on with them) then I might bite.

Did you bet her a pair of PMC floorstanders? :)

Need some better speakers to get the best out of my Roksans, this will probably be pricey so will be looking for ex demo - PMC, Spendor or Hi end Dali's are on my list up to now. Very happy with my half vintage half modern main set up (see sig) will be adding a Sonos connect to this in the next week or so and maybe some better cables. Oh and some cart swapping and isolation for my Thorens..... Never ending.

Just a word of caution from personal experience. Ribbons and Primare I22 (had both but not Elac speakers) not the best match.

it’s dangerous thinking this way but I am seriously thinking about Dali epicon 6s ex-demo in walnut but I am also thinking how much better will the epicon’s be then opticon 8s if just a little bit better then it’s not worth the upgrade .

And there are no dealers around me that sell the epicon’s as I was lucky with the Dali opticon 8s as I could go to richer sounds for a demo but they now sell the rubicon 6s and 8s but what they are like I do not no but the epicon’s look lovely to look at but do they sound lovely for £5999 ex-demo
