    Default This hobby can be brutal

    S my main rig retails anywhere between $4k and $5k, and I love it. With that said, I'm currently listening to a system that I've got a whopping $275 in from wall to my ears and I'm loving every second of it. While it just doesn't compare to my main rig in pure sound quality in any way, its doing so many things right and offering up a completely different experience. It sounds so damn good that it makes me shake my head when I listen to it. I'm thinking I might just take this lowly system to LSAF next year and see how well it is received...



    Sometimes it's nice to just kick back and enjoy it. It's too damn loud in here but I ain't backin that pot down just yet. Wish I had poured a glass of bourbon about 30 minutes ago... Well, I guess one wont hurt.
