2) Power amplifier - Atma Sphere M60 monblocks
3) Preamplifier - Blue Circle BC3
4) CD player - Music Hall MMF-25
5) Speaker cable -
a) Coincident CST-1
b) Stealth FR(terrible in my system, no longer have)
6) Interconnect -
a) Coincident CST
b) Stealth SCR
7) Power Cords -
a) Coincident CST(2 power cords)
b) Brand X silver(won't say their name because they screwed some people ROYALLY here on Audiogon). Best PC I have used
c) Brand X copper. OK, not great
An optimist would say I have saved a fair amount of money by buying here. A pessimist would say I would have a lot more money if I stayed off this site...
Proac Response 3.8 speakers
Tara Air-1 interconnects
Pass Labs Aleph Preamp
Wireworld Equinox III
Wireworld Atlantis II IC
Meadowlark Shearwater Hot Rod
That's it... I think I've sold a bit more kit here than I've bought.
Jeff, how about another question : "What Audiogon deals are you really sorry you missed?"
A krell KRC 2 pre-amp which was a great buy on a very good pre-amp.
A Pass Labs Aleph Ono phono stage which was completely upgraded by the designer with all the goodies that went into the Xono. I was nervous about this purchase, but it has been one of the true treasures I have stumbled across!
I also have a 1 m pair of Purist Colossus rca terminated ICs and a 1/2 m pair of Kimber KCGT ICs.
The rest is bought locally.
see my entire system thread below.

Of course, this ignores the upgrades over the years. Selling one used component as you buy another used component is definitely the way to go. I just wish I'd known about Audiogon sooner.
Virtual Dynamic Power 3 PC's
Nordost Blue Heaven IC's
Audio Research SP 9 mkII
Always lookin'. Nice thread!
MIT Oracle V2 speaker wire, AR ES Turntable (including Linn Baskik Plus Arm & Adcom Hexacoil Cartridge), Silver Audio Silver Bullets se to xlr converter, Wattagate 381 receptacle, Lexicon pre (for home theater), Carver Cinema Grand (for home theater) and too many xlr, rca and pc cables to mention. I also bought a set of JMLabs speakers for my daughter a couple of weeks ago.
Much of the rest of my system came about indirectly from Audiogon -- e.g., recommendations to subscribe to magazines which piqued my interest in my speakers and direct recommendations or affirmations on DAC's.

Spica TC50 speakers for my second system, CAL Alpha/Delta, Adcom 750 Pre-amp and VTL 300 Deluxe Mono Blocks
I sold off a pair of Apogee Duetta II's many years ago and still wish I'd come across another pair available locally and really well priced. No such luck so far. As for any other "deals" on AudioGon? Miss a deal, it won't be long before another opportunity arises, same stuff, different seller. The sheer quantity of ads means what came around, will come around again. Gotta love the 'Gon
Forgot my Chang Lightspeed 3200, senn HD 600, and Headroom Home amp.
Just like Mejames, with the exception of my rack and stands my entire system was purchased through Audiogon. My latest A'GoN purchase a Talon ROC 2002 will be arriving in a few days. I don't look forward to moving, unpacking, moving again, setting up, and enduring the long tweaking process with the 145lb. beast.
Rega P-25, Levinson 37 Transport, Levinson 380S Preamp, and a whole bunch of IC's, Power Cords, and Speaker Cable (all Analysis Plus, I love the stuff).

2 Pair Audioquest Coral Interconnects
