Cost Karns next to nothing for this set up.. Using my old Dell 'Studio Hybird' 140G Pooter. Cloned the original operating system onto a new Samsung Evo Solid state Hard drive. Lightning fast & totally quiet. Start up time is about 3-4 seconds. I cant recommend enough that people switch to SSD drives.

Question to Karns and Rudi:

Give us some highlights of the best and most expensive kit you’ve owned. Especially whole systems.

Best sounding! Well Hi-Fi is pretty much tripe so thats an hard one. I can tell you the worst! Yank  amps. People hankered after em but they were easily the worse amps i owned. Very very rare i bought anything new so did not loose anything on em.

Might surprise you but I really loved my old A&R Cambridge 'A60'. Was only a Budget amp but just had something about the whole sound of the thing, Used it for years. This i did buy new cos it was my first serious amp back in the early 80's. For some odd reason amps i bought afterwards that were suppose to be an upgrade just seemed to sound worse than the 'A60'! Confused the hell out of me, maybe i got it right from day one, i dunno.

some of my most enjoyable systems have been cheaper ones. Unless you want something to recreate the sort of scale and volume of a live performance......and have a room the size of a banquet hall, you don’t need to spend thousands.

I read that the A60 uses the same power amp circuit as Naim, but it sure as hell doesn’t sound like it. Definitely a noce amp to listen to. Never heard a DM101. I still enjoy vinyl but it’s an occasional listen.

Karns getting a pair of these powered monitors, they cost fuck orl, £250 a pair. No pissing about with amps or Speaker wire anymore. Plonk em each side of the TV, no need for stands plug em in the pooter for casual listening. Jobs a good un. Look good, Built like a tank, sound fantastic. Do not have time to sit down with serious listening anymore..
