Yep! It's true. I've got somewhere in the range of four pre-amps,7000 watts of amplification, God knows how many AVR's, processors and the like.
A sh!tload of speakers(hoarder:o). Some really nice Radio Shack IC's. And some CDP's laying around.
After sitting here this morning on the couch spinnin' some tunes, I opened my eyes and said "Does it take this much to have a nice rig?" NOPE!
Therefore and hitherto, I shall set off on a quest to have a minimalist approach to finding a Nice setup. Nothing fancy, no hand-built pre from a small and unknown village in the Swiss alps or $29,000 silver-soldered amps that can change weather patterns when you hit the power switch. Just simple 2ch goodness that I can maybe one day sit back and say "That's it."
Help and advise is appreciated and will be taken in and considered without bias. Unless you're talkin' tubes. Get it? Tube bias!
I still consider you all a bunch of Hacks, but you are my roving band of Hacks and I thank you.
Let the journey begin.
