Probably that we were crazy for spending so much money on this hobby!
Reading all this does bring back memories. I'm only 33, but i have been making mix tapes since I was 9 years old on my dad's Sansui stereo stack he had from the 80s.
That was a beautiful system, just putting out tapes, recording radio songs or the audio CDs, and using the sony walkman or aiwa walkman i had to listen to it.
Come to think of it, i have been swapping or upgrading music portables since i was that young!! Always looked out for new earphones and stuff! Good times!
The world was an awesome place back then, and while our world of technology today is wonderful I think it went sideways. The simpler times, when we had walkmans, boom boxes, mixtapes, and Jenson speakers in our cars...hanging out with your friends at the park and bike riding EVERYWHERE together certainly beats this world of console games, kids glued to cell phones, entitlement, and mind fogs...
Just my $.02
Sometimes the fight comes to you!
Those 80's Boom Boxes...heavy has heck when you consider some took about a dozen D-sized batteries. You were king if you had double auto-reverse (LaSonic or Panasonc), forget about if you spectrum analyzer built into the face
When we listened and danced together. Now we sitting alone hoping wife doesnt find out how much money you spent.
No I am being honest to my wife that I spent for my musics. So she can go easy to me means I can spend more later on if I want to.
I agree, “Authenticity” AND quality. You guys are getting very nostalgic ... well, just two hours ago I brought +200 vinil records from my father in law house, many albums from 60's and 70's, I did hear a lot of them on the late 70's and early 80's yes, lots of hiss from the Akai reel tapes, cassetes. A bit more practical today, I think I'll drop them in eBay or make some phone calls to some of my vinyl addicted friends.
Bottom line, listen very well because I'll say this only once: Enjoying the music with DX229, never so much fun with my Angie IEM
Sometimes I nostalgically look back and wish I still had my huge album collection and stereos of the age. And then I turn on my Dx 200. 400 gig chock full in the palm of my hand. All is bliss.
One of the thing everybody forget about it is that.....listening to selected track at a finger tip is something none of the analog could do LOL!
The DX220 and Amp9 will give a very analog sound with that practicality of being selective
Will the dx200 amp 9 produce the same analog sound?
My 1st tape player was a cheap portable with no auto reverse! Had to flip cassettes over and fast-forward in order to 'reverse.' We're a long way from those days......
Same ? I can tell you that it has a very close signature to high-end cassette decks, but how close is it ? It depends on how you are perceiving things....lol
I listened to DX209Ti. SQ was not same as DX229 that I much prefer as analog SQ.
