After another years spent in the middle of nowhere with new topics and hobbies (see my Instagram page dedicated for fountain pens) I’ve returned to the audio / hi-fi field. All my past audio system components has been gone / replaced four years ago with the fresh all-in-one Yamaha R-N502 receiver connected to Cabasse Caprera loudspeakers. Finally I’ve started just listen to music, not all the cables and other stuff.
But the only sure thing in our life is change, and according to that last year I’ve done another big change of my hifi stuff with new set (except HD 600 Headphones and tube headphone amplifier). The new one setup is able to give me lot of fun listening vinyls, files, hi-res audio,Tidal, Spotify and many other sources.
The heart of the system is Yamaha R-N803D receiver with all-in-one network player. Analog source is now Rega Planar 3 (P3 2016) glossy white with Elys2 cart. Phono preamplifier 1ARC Arrow SE (cause the phone stage built-in the Yamaha is it’s weakest point). Old Cabasse speakers found new home and has been replaced with Q-Acoustic 3050 glossy white floorstanders. The only ‘old things’ Sennheisers HD 600 with dedicated tube amp are the brilliant reminiscences from the old system. The source for files / Hi-Res is now AssetUPnP server hosted on QNAP home NAS.
Now I’m listening the music, happy with the results, buying new records or files 🙂
I’m also still close to the DIY side of life… I’ll update you soon.
Last but not least – since 2019 I’ll be publishing my post in English – it’s more convenient.
