Hmm, nice. What do you have there?
My system includes:
B&K Ex 442 amp
Proceed AVP preamp
Marantz DV9600 cd/video
Dual CS5000 turntable
Dynaudio X38 speakers
macBook through a Bel Canto DAC for streaming
The only pieces new are the Dynaudio's (actually, they were a barely used returns to my local audio shop)...the rest i picked up on the used market - serviced the amp and turntable, and both are better than new.
And i concur, take a step up from streaming s$#t through your phone to some cheap bluetooth speaker....or whatever. Go the used route...there is a lot of good equipment available that can be had for a fraction of the retail cost.
HAH! that is not my system just one I yanked off the web. I dont think I could afford the Speaker cables in that photo But I am fairly heavily invested for my income bracket.

Denon CDP just died so I am in the market for some type of transport now.
Using a 2nd gen AppleTV to stream Lossless RP now but that's a hack at best. Really hoping the Sonos capability comes through.
Everybody has there own needs but its funny what has happened to me over the years. I went on a trip with some guys recently and there was about 5 of us in this condo. One of the guys brought this little blue tooth speaker box and fired that thing up, after about 10 minutes I was thinking "Jesus turn that piece of sh!t off!!"
