Esoteric & Controversial Tip

All:

After having gone on holiday for 9 days....and subsequently taking a BREAK from all things...including what has unwittingly become a relentless and expensive pursuit of all things audiophile, a wonderful thing happened....

The day after I returned home... I fired up my little brit-fi 2 channel system, DAC, and macbook....loaded a 96/24 song...and was nothing short of *amazed* at how good my own little system sounded!!!!!

After having not had the opportunity to do any critical music listening for over a week...it was a sort of mental vacation.... it has refreshed myself and I am truly thankful for the system I have built.

Before my vacation, I was fairly disappointed in its soundstage depth and frustrated with having to change my speaker placements to sacrifice bass extension vs. soundstage....

But now.... I just find it truly a wonderful experience and again am very happy and pleased with my purchases that I spent a significant portion of time, money, research & intellect in assembling.

What I am saying is: maybe TAKE A BREAK if you are frustrated with your system.....you may be surprised at what you come back home to and miss.

Kind Regards,

Ron

ps. I've also included my final gallery post of my Creek setup. This is my optimal listening position. Notice speakers fairly far from wall and chair close. Excellent soundstage. Finally reached nirvana. :)
