Hifi, Lofi - Show us What you Listen With......
« on: October 06, 2018, 02:27:19 pm »
In lieu of there not being a separate 'hifi' section in hobbies...if you enjoy hifi, low, mid, or hi end..I'll start:

Rega planar 6 turntable
Trichord dion Phono amp
Cyrus se6 CD player
Cyrus se6 amplifier
Rega speakers

"20181006_141817.jpg"

Mid level but just fine for the room  ;D

Now Playing: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Even-A-Tree-Can-Shed-Tears-Japanese-Folk-Rock-1969-1973/release/11023834

Simaudio Moon i-5 integrated amp
Simaudio Moon LP3 phono
Musical Fidelity V-Can headamp
Rega RP6 turntable
Proac Tablette Reference 8 Signature speakers

Not pictured: Nakamichi CR2A tape deck, Oppo BDP-103 universal player, Audeze LCD-2 headphones

Kinda looking to ditch the integrated/phono/headamp and get a one box solution that'll also do USB input.

@neph93 thank you so much for creating this thread! I suspect a few people will have a lot to contribute.

@mclaincausey without getting all audiophile geek, I enjoy it's sound. It's clear and crisp without losing bottom. I try and research and buy the best my wallet can stretch to. As with most things, the ex demo and 2nd hand markets are a good place to get value for money.

@setandsetting that's a nice looking set up. I wasn't familiar with simaudio so looked them up. So nice components too. I want to move away from integrated amplifiers in future too. My dream would be a valve amp. My mortgage says otherwise!

Mine wouldn't be classified Hi Fi but Sonos 3s throughout the house and a 5 in the listening lounge hooked up to my LP so I can stream records through the house. Best sounding speakers I have are some early 90s Paradigm 9se but they're just hooked directly to a Pioneer receiver in the living room and paired with a Paradigm center channel and a Sony sub. Really more for watching sports and movies but once I get them hooked to Sonos they will be playing more music cos they do it so well.

I'd love to beef up my rig some day but in terms of convenience it's great.

Seriously Low-Fi
My little Dansette that I bought on eBay many years ago. I believe it is over 65 years old now.
Sounds like shit, but I like it.

@Sam  there is something quite romantic about the sound of an old record player. I used to have a gramaphone that we'd break out on Sunday mornings, play a few blues 78s and have a coffee. Great stuff.

I have the 235s with cables as well as the Bluetooth adapter and love them. I use the foam tips.

Only complaint is that the mic pics of a ton of ambient noise, frustrating efforts to use my phone in loud environments.

Open Sennheiser HD 518 for office listening.

I love the Apple bluetooth earbuds. Features and convenience factors are unbeatable.

How are they for staying in your ears whilst moving? @JDelage

The shape doesn't look too different from the ones they give you when you buy an iPhone and they fall out my ears if there's a slight breeze. I also think I'd lose just one eventually but that's just my clumsy nature.
