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

The Naim CD555 is on my short-list as well. Maybe, someday, I will get my demo time.

Hey Art,

Were you ever able to get your prize to go up to speed in less than 15 minutes?  I have several vintage Rek-O-Kuts and they all suffer from this "inconvenience" and are thus not used.

I had one of those. The rumble was terrible.
