Nothing yet, but going to pull the trigger on a fairly large purchase tomorrow.

A great year for me audio wise thanks to all the great advice at Head-fi to guide me along with all the tons of reviews at Amazon.

 

Onkyo TX-8555 stereo reciever

JBL Control One bookshelf speakers

Insignia Bass Reflex Speakers

KLH Pro-6 bookshelf speakers

Auralex Mopads

Koss Pro-4AA headphones

Koss UR-40 Titanium headphones

Sony MDR-XB500 headphones

Sennheiser HD-202 II headphones

Sennheiser HD-419 headphones

Flex 500gig external harddrive for backing up music cds.

 

 

This will probably be it as i focus on buying music and a few computer games for my audio visual pleasure. Oh yea and probably see about getting some more storage for ripping the music on.

This list is just insane and all in 1 year to boot. So in your opinion, which of those mentioned above is your best purchase of the year (i.e. once you have it you just cannot live without it)?

2011 has been a great year. Sig includes everything but DT880s which were traded. In 2012 I'm looking forward to the release of the ODAC and WooDAC.

I'd say Esoteric K-01, SR009, Smyth Realiser and Westone ES5. But of course I can't listen to my SR009 without the SRM727II so I have to reluctantly include it - until my BHSE arrives. 

 

As for Liquid Fire / LCD2/3, they are very close to my top gear mentioned above, but not there yet when it comes to "once you have it you just cannot live without it".

Bragging thread... ;)

post #10 of 38

Too many headphones, a few sources, amplifiers and more music than I can handle. 

 

The highlights:

Sony CDP-750

Beyerdynamic DT48S

AKG K400

AKG K500

Fiio E10

Sennheiser HD250 II Linear

JBL Duet II (Computer speakers usually sound lousy, especially the budget versions. The JBL sounds better than I expected.)

 

At the moment I am still checking out a particular headphone and I still want to try the DT1350...

Not a whole lot going on this year, but that's a good thing. Only two main standouts:

 

Stax SR-X Mk3 Pro, which is ridiculously awesome, and

Neko D100 Mk2, which is a rather nice DAC actually, especially with the O2/BH... nice enough to make me contemplate selling everything else.

post #12 of 38

* Woo Audio WA6-SE

* Violectric V800

 

Very happy with both :)

 

Thinking about the LCD-3, but probably not before the year is over.

post #13 of 38

MEElectronics M6

Ety MC5 (now broken...)

UE TF10

Some random Altec Lansing phones (returned the next day..)

 

Sony MDR 7506

Sony XB 500

Grado SR60i

AKG K240M

 

Fiio E6

CEntrance DACmini

 

iPod Classic 160gb

Pure i20

 

I only regret the XB500s and the M6s.
