Its December, so why not start off the month with a "holiday" wish list thread? (Note: I didn't say Christmas.
)

Anyway,

No audio related stuff for me this year. Maybe next year, but this year, I'm just asking for some electric fencing equipment. Its about time I got my own, and stopped leaching off of my club.
Also, perhaps santa could bring me 256 megs of Crucial pc133 ram. . . ah, and the 4 disc lord of the rings set.

Your turn!

well... since i'm a college student, i had to sell my vinyl sources. I'm asking for an MMF-1. I really think any turntable more expensive than that would really be pushing it. Besides... i can always get a nicer cartridge for it.

Hey, MMF-5s are pretty cheap on AudioGon...

But for me, not much, really. I think an Arcam CD23 or Creek CD53 would be a bit unreasonable, and so would one of those Relax the Back desk chairs
... (I won't even MENTION a certain Canadian cable company's flagship power cords...
)

Maybe a spectrum analyzer plugin off the Bay for my Tek 'scope or a copy of Kevin Mitnick's book or something like that. And CDs, of course!

Before Christmas I'd like a fellow Head-Fi member who likes to listen to a lot of rock to provide a thorough review/comparison of the AT A1000 the Beyer DT770 using a maxed out META42 amp with an AD860 opamp.


That way, I'll know what to get for Christmas.


I guess I could buy the DT770 from Headroom (where it is expensive) and order the A1000. If I lined up a buyer for the A1000 prior to ordering it, after I got done comparing it to the DT770 I could keep whichever one I like, but that seems like an unnecessary pain in the wallet.

Finger crossed for you, Happyman

Hum, for Christmas, I need to convince my parents that a Meta42 isn't wasted money.

All I want right now is to get this research paper due tomorrow done and over with x_x...no finals would be nice while I'm at it.

For the holidays though, I want a new PCDP, headphones, and amp, and lots of CDs...then I can sit around all day listening to my music thanking god that I have nothing to study for.

I don't want anything.

Okay that's not entirely true. I would like to see my kids and grandbabies during the holiday.
