MBL 9011 Mono Amps
Something like a York all in one system, where the Audiophile Police will get so upset that they would search the world to find and arrest me for being so lame.
My brother had one of those way back when. I remember trying to lecture him on the sound of that piece of crap. He was listening to Kiss, he smiled and turned it up until he couldn't hear. I left the room as I couldn't (and stilll can't) stand Kiss.
Okay here's some more info on the island:
The DESERT ISLAND you will be stuck on was once the private hideaway of a very wealthy British securities trader. He kept his ownership of the island "off the books," even from his own family. Sadly, he was poisoned by his wife while home in England, leaving the island to fall back into anonymity.
The island contains a moderately large house nestled in a grove of palm trees. The house's rooms are all sizes - some tiny single bedrooms, a large master, a huge living room and an indoor squash court.
Luckily, he was an audiophile and had all the rooms rigged with great electrical lines feeding off an unknown power source which seems to come from deep under the house.
So, one system in one room. You can bring sources, cables, tweaks, media.... just ONE of each kind.
What would you choose to spend your days with?
a "desert" island or simply a deserted island? big difference. i want a cool shaded lagoon with a waterfall, fruit-laden plants, a plentiful variety of fish and game, beautiful mountains with breathtaking overlooks, rare birds and insects,
flowers that bloom year round (in sequence), someone who can COOK really well,
a swiss-made microscope, a Takahashi telescope and mount, many guitars and amplifiers. my STEREO SYSTEM would include the latest Wilson WAMM system
(only two in the world, the other belongs to D.W.), Levinson (or) Rowland amps
(can't make up my mind on that score). Source- Levinson 512 or EMM labs XDS-1 (more complicated than that i don't know how to use), Levinson or Rowland Preamp, VPI-TNT-6 table with SDS and a Benz-LPS. Just an aside- i don't sincerely believe that the equipment from Europe or Japan, et.al. is significantly "better" than the American brands, as wonderful as they might be.
BTW, Do I get to bring a computer? Does Amazon deliver? what if i need to exercise my warrantee? can i get SAT radio/TV? Netflix?
I don't know, i think i am getting homesick...
