The title says it all. Fire away with anything high end you wish to brag about!

I'm starting a booth retreat. A big custom bass trap and them dealing with reflections.

I also got 4 sE X1d before they go away.

The year is young. Last year I got five figures worth of gear...but this month, the only high-end audio component I bought was a Furman P-1800 PF R power conditioner.

(I guess a Gustard U12 digital interface and A-Designs ATTY passive attenuator don't count as high-end.)

Since the OP owns the Dutch & Dutch 8c, I'll mention that's one of the candidates I am considering to upgrade from my Geithain RL 903K speakers later this year.

I got a good deal on a used Manley VOXBOX. I was at my local GC picking up guitar strings and I saw the voxbox at a great price. Was shocked as this store typically only has run of the mill crap.

Even though I did not need it...the Deepmind 12 was so cheap I could not resist at $500 even. With a thousand + preset something has to tickle my fancy.

32 core amd centos Linux system for the backend with rtx gpu. It's crazy how powerful computers have become, especially if you take a bit of time to build your own system.

I’ve been stalking them on eBay forever $500 with free shipping was my threshold. They will only get cheaper once behringer opens the flood gates of inspired knockoffs.

My Rev D

Can't believe there hasn't been a post here in four weeks!

Got myself a second Kush Electra 500 EQ last week.

As for my Rev D, it's not the one you were expecting. It's an Edison standard phonograph, model D. I've wanted one of these for a long time, and got this from a collector who'd had it for about 40 years. It's in beautiful shape!



And here it is in action. Shot with my Canon 80D, which I love.

Its like modern mics - a little bright.

Seriously - what a beautiful thing to have for someone into audio.

Yeah it's pretty bright with very little low end . I recorded it with an MC930 into a Tascam DR-70.

Luckily, I found a local guy who does repairs if I need it in the future. There's also a phonograph sub-Reddit as well as a phonograph website kind of like GS. You can get a recorder head and blank cylinders and record with it too- I'll give it a try whenever I get those.

I also have a nice plaster bust of Beethoven, and if I ever make a real studio in my basement the bust and phonograph will figure prominently in it.

The last musical thing I really really want is some medieval sheet music to frame and put on my wall. A local antiquarian store had a couple a number of years ago that were beautiful, but I was broke at the time and the store has closed now. They can be pretty expensive.

I redid the Jeep Wrangler JKU car stereo. Kenwood preamp, Alpine Jeep replacement woofers, custom installed AMT folded ribbon tweeters and exotic crossover InfiniCaps.

The Kenwood has a USB front jack for FLAC files and I use the 1/8" stereo AUX input to feed a Project Audio S2 ESS based DAC upsampled to 384K. Those tweeters do 40k hz. Dogs love them.

1970 Martin D12-35 with enough nicotine on it to paint a house (there on the left).

One of the best 12 strings I have ever heard or played.

Stinks a bit... But I'll probably have my guy refinish it in a dark burst like that 00 across from it.
