Thorens TD-146
McIntosh MX113
McIntosh MC-250
PSB 800's

Basement setup is a Marantz 1060 into Marantz Imperial 7's that I just have a Chromecast Audio hooked up to play Spotify stuff from my phone.

When I'm on the go I've got Bose NC700's, Bose Soundsports, or Bose Rondo frames. Big fan of the Bose headphones sound and technology. What I use just depends on what I'm doing or where I'm going.

@chrisjohnnick Very nice setup!  Is the McIntosh worth it?  I always drool when looking at them, but the price tag scares me…

My Marantz setup was my main for years, and I was very happy with it. I happened to find the MX113 and MC250 on craigslist for $20 about 15 years ago and jumped on it. Yes, $20. I don't think I've ever driven and ran quicker to pick up something. Took them straight to my tech and had them put about $150 of work into them to get them back up. The guy was cleaning out his dad's garage, and said they hadn't been used or plugged in for maybe 20+ years. It definitely sounds amazing, especially when cranked. Don't know if it's worth the price tag new, but definitely worth the used market price tag.

What a great find!  Some of McIntosh setups can get very expensive.  The nearest Audiophile shop near me has all of the gear listed as POR (price on request), and I’m the type that was taught if you have to ask then…

I did go into the shop once to audition some of the gear, but knew I was in over my head right away.  Left and haven’t been back.  I still dream though.

Yea, the Mc's are definitely forever pieces for me. I might upgrade the Thorens to something more high end down the road, but every time I consider it, I seem to find something else I'd rather spend the money on. Same thing with the speakers.

Early 1970‘s Pioneer SA-8100 and TX-8100. I had both stored away the last couple of years and finally dug them out after moving to our new home. Need to have them servised though.
