I go for gear. If it should be music I'll go to Opera house instead. cool.gif Most of my music is popular enough to find for free. :D

This.

 

 

 

It'd be music for me. I've just bought a new set up that I am stoked with at the moment. I'm a massive DnB head, so most of the tunes i listen to can only be bought anyway. I don't have enough money for new music as it is at the moment, so i know where a nice cash injection like would be going

Definitely music first for me. Gear is useless without music.

After building some Linkwitz Orions it's been just music for me. I haven't changed any of my gear for four years now. Before that I changed something at least once a year

Very nice! How about some pics for us?

Considering the gear owned, music.

post #56 of 61

Gear.

 

I like to add albums to my collection slowly, making sure I've "bonded" (or not) with each small group of new albums (2,3 at a time max) before buying new ones. Having £1,000 to spend on music wouldn't be practical or benefit my life much. I can enjoy music fully and completely spending £20 a month.

 

Spending on music gear would achieve a lot more, and would benefit my whole existing music collection.

I'm moving, so maybe in the new place. Going from an apartment to a house, so I might push the boat out and build some Thors to go with them.

No idea if this is off topic at all, but:

 

I was upset listening to music for a bit, i realised it was because i was listening to my gear more than the music

I turned on what was once my favourite song and just let it wash over me. the music.. not the gear, i actually found i enjoyed my gear a lot more this way as well. those shivers that i used to get came back. 

 

So i guess if you asked a while back i would have said gear (some LCD2's with my name on it)

But i think now id say music :)

You get to a point where your gear can't get a lot better. That's never true of music.
