I get asked at least once a week what my system consists of. This is it as of 12/27/11. I’ll be going in a different direction next year. Still mulling it over, but changes are coming for at least 3 things (turntable, power amp and speakers). Headphones and headphone amp will be gone by the new year. I just boxed them up this weekend. My head-fi days are coming to an end since I use cans sparingly these days. Nevertheless, this is it at the moment before the change comes.
