Listening #121 List of the Month

Sidebar: List of the Month

Regrets? I've had a few. Ten, to be precise. Here are the five products I used to own that I most regret selling or giving away, followed by the five products I've borrowed from manufacturers that I most regret giving back. They're listed in alphabetical order; pressed to choose one, I'd say the Mac hurts worst.

1) Advent 300 stereo receiver
2) Conrad-Johnson PV-2ar preamplifier
3) McIntosh MR-66 monophonic tuner
4) Naim Armageddon isolation transformer
5) Naim Nait integrated amplifier
***
1) Audio Note Ongaku integrated amplifier
2) Naim CD555 CD player
3) Shindo SPU pickup head
4) Shindo Vosne-Romanee preamplifier
5) Stax F81 loudspeakers
