Hey!!!

Well im pretty new to all this but i was flicking through here and didnt find any music related posts!! You all have bloody amazing systems! I always rated my set up as one of the best, then you lot burst my bubble!! (Thank you everyone!! Really you made me feel soo... Yeh!) I run a simple 18+yo Cambridge Audio P25 that my dad passed onto me, a set of fidelity speakers from the 1970's and a set of Matsui bookshelf's! I think ive payed £17 over all! On speaker wire and Phono-3.5mm jacks leads!

Back to the subject!

I have:

AV710 Sound Card (optical) -> Zhaolu 1.3 DAC -> M^3 Pre-Amp / Headphone amp -> Chipamp -> Modula MT's

Most of it is homemade stuff. The Zhaolu has been recased, re-op amped, and a couple of other modifications. I also have a pair of HD580's that I use when I can't crank everything up too loud.

I'm not sure what kind of music I like, but I'll give you what's in my Half.com wish list as an example:

Imogen Heap
White Stripes
Johnny Cash
Queen
The Killers
Ingrid Michaelson
Regina Spektor
The Strokes
Sufjan Stevens
Bing Crosby
Will Smith
Chris Thile
Jack's Mannequin
