I now have a 1988 Technics SE M100 amplifier - onboard DAC with twin mono amplification. Very very nice compared to the Quad gear I had for a short time.
I loved my 606 and 44 but other stuff sounded better.
Music is from a Yamaha Music cast, one of the last things from down the tip. A £2000 posh hifi PC with a massive 80gb hdd - massive for 2004! The software is out there for a bigger hdd but cant be bothered yet.
It is very good with its lossless audio ripping/ playback but a bit of a technological dinosaur. Its built in wifi is now too old to communicate with the router. I have to hardwire it to update Gracenote.
Speakers are still Mission 753.
Bought a cheap A to D converter for the ipod to go into the Technics - it works rather well for £8!http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121455625727? ... EBIDX%3AIT
I still have a LOT of other bits, plus am now a bit of a convert to the original Goodmans speakers. Have a set of Magnums and some Dimension 8
