Nope, I’m not planning to “do” anything with it and I got the second one purely because I have the first one. I mean the result that I got out of the first one was so phenomenally inspiring that I sincerely feel that even for $2K or $3K for this tuner is a spectacular bargain.
I have mine that I been using dally and if something goes wrong with it I would like do not be left without theTU-X1 as I do not know anyone who would be able to fix them. Yes, I got another one purely for the sake of having another perfectly operation unit, boxed and sitting in my storage. It is not an expansive greedy intention but in my mind it is fully justifiable. I will not wiling to peruse any other FM source (I do not thing else better would be ever build) and I would like to be certain that I will be supplied to the rest of my life with sound quality that the TU-X1 offers.
Also, Antonio, believe me or not but I do feel that I peaty much stole it. You see if we have in audio any relation between the prices we pay and the sonic reimbursement the we get out of audio then looking as the prices we ordinary pay for some other sources ($5K for transports + $10K for DAC, $10-20K for TT + $3K for cartridge) I sincerely believe that TU-X1 should cost somewhere near $22K-$25K. In fact, in addition that the TU-X1 offers the sonic result better or similar then a $25K source also the TU-X1 is much more fruitful source then CD or LP as a tuner offers much more culturally richer and more device programming. (Of course in the cities when there are available good FM classical stations… and here is where Boston rules!)
So, looking at all of it I figured out the an nice l back-up TU-X1 would not heart… Now, the fan part is that if I keep my blabbering mouse shut then I would get it even cheaper as I unknowingly was bidding in there against another reader of this site…
