As the last few days I dealt with final idiosyncrasy of my lower bass it was the last stoke of brash at the canvas of my audio desires. The results I am getting the last month I think let me to close my book on “design” aspect of my playback. I think I am over and I do feel that I did accomplish the best Sound I know of. Over the last few weeks when people visited me I, without any pretentious posing, informed them that in my estimation it is the most radical and advanced result from playback I feel contemporary audio can deliver. It is very much not ego statement, if you know what I mean.

So, since I have absolutely no further objectives with my playback, and absolutely no desire to deal with anything in playback any further I am planning to freeze all my activities with my playback. I might play with idea to build my Cetla Ledom 91 loudspeaker in my fireplace room but it will be no interaction of it with my main playback.

So, what I am thinking is to get rid of everything I have managed to accumulate over the last 10 years that made my playback possible but that I turn out do not use. I mean all those amplifiers, drivers, processors, converters, adaptors, cables, tonearm, tubes, record players, speakers, cartridges etc, et, etc …. many other auxiliary pieces of equipment and past s - I am planning to get rid all of it.  it is not monitory gain that drives me but rather my lack of desire to deal with it and my interest to free my mind from possessing all of it. In fact over the years it was always my intention sometime in future to get rid all of it, not I am in good mental shape of the “accomplisher” to do it.

So, over the course of the next month I will be dumpling my unused audio possessions. I think to bring a small track to MIT flea-market but I think my things are more specific than this. My site’s shameless commerce pages (“Some of my audio scraps left over from my previous projects”) do sell surprisingly well but only large items. So, most likely I will be damping the crap at eBay.

I feel very much liberated only to think about it.

Congratulations on building and arriving at a place where you are happy. It is often difficult to know when to finish persuing something in life.

I am sure you will enjoy litening to music more without listening out for areas you can improve on.

Aside from this do you have any surplus pairs of tweeters you will be listing, i need to buy some to use above Yamaha 6681B and Fane 8m.

I am not planning to grow my “sale” page and upload in there more items. I would like to get rid of my audio possessions at more anonymous environment, like eBay or something like this. If the items are listed at my site then people mask questions about conditions, use, options and so it. I truly do not care about all of it, I would like do not communicate with people and I do not care how they will be using the things…

On a winder scale I am truly living live my audio dream. The playback sound spectacular and I have no single point or need or motivation to object anything or change anything. I just turn it on, pay records and turn it off - like in the past… With all my habitual picking the nuts here and there I have no single complain – a very rare feeling…
