Life has been sucking in general for a while. To make matters worse, I have been keeping my stereo equipment at my parent's house as I have been afraid that my children would get to it and destroy it. Well, I purchased a new cartridge 2 months ago (?) and have only managed to mount it and listen to maybe 10 sides with it. Just can't find the time to go and listen, still need to adjust anti-skate, etc. It is frustrating and adding to my anxiety that I can't even listen to some music. I have decided to sell my speakers and get some monitors and keep my TT in my master bedroom (it is a fairly large room. I think that it will be safe there. Like I said though, the room is too small for my Focals, so I need to downsize to make it work. I was looking for some opinions about the rest of my gear though. Should I get rid of my x250 and go to something smaller? Should I get an integrated? What speakers should I go for? I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.
