I had a decent system some years back thatis still sitting in the basement. Family life just got in the way.
So now, years later, most of my listening has been through my computer using a uDac-2 headphone amp. I converted all of my CD's etc. to FLAC via MediaMonkey a while back.
My youngest son recently discovered vinyl and picked up a turntable that plugs directly into Macbook. He also discovered my old vinyl collection archived in the basement. I won't let him play any of my stuff on his table and most of my collection was lovingly cared for by be and is virtually spotless. Most albums are in archival sleeves, protected with "Last" and are Mobile Fidelity or Japaneese pure vinyl.
So, he wants to listen and I assured him that I would set things up again. I still have the following equipment around and would like ideas about how to make this old equipment sound good with modern technology.
Hafler DH-220 amp
Hafler DH-110 pre-amp
DBX 3BX expander
Yamaha turntable (can't remember the model)
Speakers are and old set of Mission 727's but I think I'll at least go with a good set of bookshelf speakers, likely Polks, because of my limited space.
and of course, the uDac-2 from NuForce to connect the new with the old.
