  1. This is an interesting subject - it really depends on how you build your system. If you were to go out and purchase new a system that equals or bests the one I'm using today, it would likely stack up like this: Speakers: 60% Amplifiers: 25% Pre-Amp: 5% Other sources and cables: 10% Because I am cheap and like to work on my own stuff I have built my system from mostly used equipment. Amps: Two M1.0ts that I purchased new back in the day (1985) for $400 each. I have upgraded / updated them both myself.

  2. The purchase that put me on this Carver journey was an amplifier (a $150 EBay impulse buy). I was blown away by how much a good amp improved the sound of my outdated system. After some time descending down the bunny hole, I've acquired 11 Carver amps (I think) and now I've turned my attention more towards speakers and room treatment. I've also tried to determine a hierarchy of components to get the most bang for my buck. To my frustration, I've answered the question differently at different times and perhaps thrown good money after bad. At the risk of sounding pretentious, thi

  3. When I found this site and had Greg service my MXR, I didn't know the journey I would be on. I have since bought 3 amps, 3 pairs of speakers, a turntable and 2 CD players. Maybe 60% of my costs are in amps, 30% in speakers and 10% in the rest. And I have no idea where this journey will take me but I am having a good time.

  4. What do you think about where the money goes? Which components should you spend the most money on? For instance, in my work in progress(Main system): I have $1100 in Digital Sources, $3200 in Phono Source, $2500 in Preamp, $4000 in Amps, $800 in Speakers, $400 in Power Conditioner, $400 in Subs, $20 tuner, maybe $100.00 in cables. Where did you spend all the money?

  7. There is a spot here a few miles from town that has no sound. Standing there for 20+ minutes, I heard parts of my body. Finally, after about 10 minutes I heard the pocket watch in my jeans pocket ticking. Couldn't figure it out at first, then was amazed. That kind of hearing is gone these days, and the world is getting less noisy.

  17. In my humble opinion, amps + speakers should be 60-70%. However, I am not a vinyl fan, so my “source budget” is a fraction of someone who IS into vinyl. AND, a BillD C1 is so cheap that it frees up more money for atomically-aligned, cryogenic gold plated power cords...

  20. Bluey, Tinted Sky was released on June 12, 2020. Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick is the founder, producer, and lead songwriter of Incognito. "British soul collective Incognito was at the forefront of the acid-jazz movement during the 1980s and early ‘90s. Originally focused on instrumental grooves fusing soul, jazz, and disco, the offshoot of Light of the World found long-deserved commercial success throughout the ‘90s with vocally charged numbers featuring the likes of Jocelyn Brown, Maysa, and Carleen Anderson—to name a few."

  22. Patricia Barber, Higher was released on March 15, 2019. "For four decades, Chicago pianist Patricia Barber has been quietly, but steadily, creating her own unique brand of music. Higher, the bandleader’s first new recording in six years, merges jazz harmonies and rhythms with classical art song and erudite poetry, and features “Angels, Birds And I ...”—an ambitious song cycle—alongside a few jazz standards."
