It’s very easy for many of us to get caught up with the excitement of a dedicated room build and constant upgrading of gear. I am of course, guilty of that practice, no thanks to enablers like Ivan !

The fact that you are happy with what you have now, knowing that you have had much more expensive gear and rooms is a really good statement.

You and I have spoken at length regarding the Luxman gear. I’m glad it still brings you much satisfaction.
Greg, I’m very happy with my current and much more modest setup of Harbeth, Luxman and tube magic of PrimaLuna when the mood strikes. Having gone on a wild ride of all things audio in the past 30 years, I’m finally at a place where I found perfect balance for my love and passion for this particular hobby. I’m able to enjoy my favorite music daily, it sounds great, it didn’t break the bank and I will get as much use out of this system as the audio gods will allow me.
Not one penny more needs to be spent, I see no further reason or interest in upgrading.

Yes my family enjoyed watching movies but a nice big screen TV is just as good for the normal folks. I find it liberating these days to be able to enjoy my other hobbies and tinkering with stuff as the favorite music is playing in the background. I’m burned out from sitting in the chair gazing into the soundstage and contemplating my next upgrade in the endless bouts of audiophile nirvosa. Done with that for good.
