Weird. What if you're buried next to someone who doesn't like your choice of music?

Far from it! Actually, I am just starting! I will keep buying and experimenting gears forever! Swapping audio gears is actually fun after 30 years of the quest for sound journey!
Until last year IÂve always reminded myself that I should stop buying new or used mediocre or hi-end gears for my sound system. IÂve been hesitating to buy new equipments because it is hard to judge what a new gear would do. Would it make the sound better or worse? IME, all they were just little better or just different sounds. It was no fun or not worth to upgrade gears. In fact, buying experience is more fun than hearing them. I am not talking about just cheap sound system, but the result of my 30 years of audio journey.
Now I have a musical and revealing sound system which tells me every different nuance of sounds of equipments, what is the intention (or mistakes) of a recording engineer in recordings, clear sonic images of lips, tongue, facial and body expressions of singers or performers in good recordings, clear images of realistic sound stage from corner to corner, etc. IÂve working hard to be here. This is what I've been struggling for! Why stop now? True fun starts now!
This will not be my final system for sure. IÂll experiment all kinds of tubes. No SS! SS doesnÂt satisfy me completely like tubes. Have you met any SS amp guy with total satisfaction? I haven't. I had and still have many SS amps (for sale). I am totally satisfied with tube gears! I donÂt want anything more from my current sound system! They are fine as it is.
I will be buying more gears in control. Not like uncontrollable buying itch or bug! And it will not be upgrading. It is just enjoying different sounds. I may prefer some sound over another such as 845 tubes over 300B.
IÂm enjoying let other audiophiles know what they should look forward in listening and buying audio gears. It is easy to convince them Âwhat is the good soundÂ in my sound system. IÂve been succeeding it without fail this year. I had 4 ladies who visit my studio with their husbands cried or teared after listening music- Celine Deon.
This isnÂt my final audio system for sure!
