I could probably build (not for you Peter. I know your taste) a pretty good rig for around $2000.
-single driver double mouth horn speakers $800
-tube integrated amp $500
-used Oppo DVD player and new NOS DAC $500-$600
- rest on cables and such.
I'm sure you would be very surprised what can be achived on tight budget if someone is willing to do some of the work and put some time in research.
For $2000 you can put together a quite good sounding system, especially if you take your time, and narrow down your listening wants and needs, and are willing to buy mostly used components. Granted it won't be SOTA, but nevertheless it should meet your criteria for "sound(ing) organic and easy to listen to for long periods"
Unfortunately you misspelled the last word in the subject of your thread. It's spelled B-U-N-G-E-E not B-U-D-G-E-T ;-)
Anyway here is my favorite remarkable system! (Sorry, I could not resist playing a little pun and poking a little fun!)
Exotic is welcome I just don't get exposed to it enough.
I should have bought stocks in bungee international, not only do I use bungees in my stereo but on my way to work down hill I tie some bungees to the rear of my car and would you believe now we have a surplus of petro.
By the way those Jbl's are remarkable for the money!
