Multiple systems. Approaches taken.
Just curious and thought it might lead to an interesting discussion. For folks who are fortunate to have the means, space, WAF, etc., what approach do you take on multiple rigs? Some examples might be:
--I try to get my secondary, tertiary, bedroom, office, etc. to sound as close to my awesome main stereo as reasonably possible, but smaller and cheaper.
--I like variety and often listen to different music in the different spaces with varying degrees of movement and off-axis listening and try to tailor the sound.
--I use the trickle-down method when I upgrade stuff in my main rig.
--Each system gets complete, dedicated individual attention and are set up from scratch with intent.
--I'm an audio hoarder and just rotate my stuff in multiple setups.
--I can't ever completely decide between tubes and SS, so....
--I dedicate one to analog and the other to digital.
--Whatever, this is stupid, and I dedicate all my disposable income to get the single best system in my awesome dedicated room. Multiple systems are a distraction and would divert funds from getting the one best thing I can.
Trickle down and variety (and maybe, just maybe, a little indecision and hoarding) seem to fuel my approach, although the two main rigs use similar gear and have a somewhat similar flavor. Just worked out that way.
