    Wannabe Audiophile

    Hey all,

    Fellow music lover here. Have enjoyed all types of music my entire life. I have used music as a way to communicate stages / feelings in my life as well as mark significant moments.

    I’ve always wished I could play an instrument, but alas, never fulfilled that dream so I find myself living vicariously through the music…

    As I enter the second part of my life I now have the means to build a budget audiophile system. Such as,

    Fiber connections
    Hifi Rose 250b
    Holo May DAC
    ModWright pre w/separate PS
    ModWright KVA150
    ModWright phono stage w/separate PS
    EAT C Sharp
    Focal Sopra n1
    SVS subs
    Some marantz bits with GlodenEar for home theater
    A few linear power supplies, cables and balanced inter connects

    Thanks for sharing all your experience….

    welcome, some people have an ear and can just pick up an instrument. My moms side of the family all could pick up anything and start making music with it. I inherited their love of music but not their ear or touch and have,like you, always appreciated listening.
