Ditching the receiver

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Since the pandemic, I have been spending more time listening to LPs and CDs at home, and not content to leave things alone, I decided to upgrade.

i bought a Sonamp dedicated amp and a Adcom preamp, and a Schiit phono pre. I am amazed at the improvement in audio quality. My turntable is a Technics SL1200 mk 2 with a moderately priced cartridge. 

I'm not so inclined to go full tilt audiophile by buying tube gear, etc but this was an expense I don't regret making.

I also invested in an inexpensive record cleaner.

I did something similar: upgraded my stylus to a Nagaoka MP110. 

If you are at home and listening to music all day, it makes sense.

By record cleaner, do you mean a Spin Clean or a vacuum device?

I upgraded my PC speakers to Klipsch R-41PM monitors. I don't know about "audiophile", but they sound a lot better to my ears than the PC speakers that came with a recent Dell PC purchase. I should've done this a while ago but until I was forced to sit and listen to them for hours, it wasn't a priority. :)

I bought a non electric cleaner that attaches to a vacuum.

I’ve heard of those. Is that like a wet vac?

Not necessarily. You hook up whatever vac you have to the unit, using the adapter hose.

Here is a link to the company and the cleaner. (KAB EV1)

Not a bad idea.
