left my component system behind and just picked up the kanto tuk and sub8 for my condo. a fraction the cost and liking the simplicity.
now thinking of the kef ls50 wireless 2 when I buy/build a home.
anyone switch from components to amplified speakers? miss the building experience?
"You have to understand, part of the satisfaction from your system came not just from being pleased by its sound, it was also immensely gratifying to know that you selected this system: you did the research, you did the in-store comparisons, you made the decisions regarding how to apportion your limited budget.
(“Do I go for the better speakers and the less powerful amplifier or do I spend for more watts of power and get the step-down speakers, which are just about as good?”)
Lots of choices to make. Lots of factors to weigh. Therefore, your system was highly personal, it was reflective of your taste, your priorities, your sensibilities. If you were into stereo as a hobby, your system really represented you."
can always play with placement, isolation, and room treatments (first reflection point panels, bass traps, etc.), I suppose?
