I've ordered my speaker rig but it hasn't arrived yet. I ordered a Leben 300XS and a pair of Harbeth HL5s a little over 2 weeks ago. Hoping we hear they ship next week but it could be a couple more weeks.
Basically I've been without more than my laptop speakers for 2 weeks plus now. It's actually been genuinely effecting my life. The wife(ish) commented on my being a bit more irritable and moody lately and we both think that's the problem.
As for the turntable...I still have it but the current analog rig will be for sale soon. I expect my tax return within 3 weeks and that combined with 2 paychecks in that time will be invested into a new phono stage and turntable. :D I've become quite dedicated to vinyl as a format and the new speaker rig will most likely not have a digital source run through it at all for awhile. I think I've pretty much decided on the new table and stage.
After those 2 upgrades I honestly think I'll be slowing down with big purchases for awhile. I'll want a new cart eventually, but the 20X has low hours and I really just have too much vinyl I want to buy right now to think about saving for another few months to get the cart I want. It's all about the music, after all.
EDIT: Though I will want to buy a set of headphones after I hear a bunch in March at the Texas meet. Thinking maybe a T1, but we'll see.
MT, you went from 009's to speakers, i hope you are enjoying it! Do you have a full blown speaker rig atm? still have your turntable gear? Not going to lie there are a lot of times i look over at my headphones when my speakers are on and wonder why I still have headphones. I still use my headphones all day at work so they're useful there, and sometimes my speakers just cant pull out the technicalities or pure intimate joy the paradox/CTH can.
Apologies if i'm clogging a picture thread.
