Here are two of mine:

- resist the "upgraditis" bug by taking the time to appreciate what I have !
- always remember that music is more important than the equipment !

I hope to be strong enough for the first one ! :D

Happy New Year to all !

Resolutions for 2006...

* To home audition and purchase a super fine (economical) set of interconnects.
* To research and audition as many Blue-Ray DVD players as possible, maybe
purchase if I get the right price etc.
* To keep giving you guys a hard time wherever possible... :D
* To actually see Mark's system on my computer screen and marvel at it's shear
beauty and grandeur... :D
* To continue to learn and where possible offer in-put advise or knowledge
about this great and wonderful audio hobby I'm interested in.

Cheers

-Robin

1. Get Martin Logan Vantage.
2. Work on getting a better amp - perhaps something like the Rotel RB1080 or 1090 amp towards the summertime.
3. Get an SVS PB12+/2 subwoofer.
4. Done.

Clean up and sort through the two bins of records that people have just given me and the wife has dragged home. I've not listened to a single one of those alien/foreign records (3-years), still regarded as the outsiders wanting in. Will they hurt my Grado?

Ok,
I’ve thought long are hard on this one. I am, unfortunately, not in any financial position to complete any significant upgrades this year or possibly next so I have two lists: one I know is immediately possible, the other is more of a reasonable (if that’s possible in this hobby) wish list.

What I want to do this year (not in any particular order):

1. Finish off my DIY rack and TV stand. I’ve completed the framing for my stand and now need to make and finish off the shelves.

2. Install (myself) a 20amp dedicated circuit for my system. I should be able to do this for hopefully less than $100.

3. Look into all of the new music suggestions that have been posted as a result of my request, in addition to a few new bands/artists that I have just recently discovered myself.

4. With all of the cable posts lately, I’m getting curious to sell off some of my extra stuff to try something different.

5. Fight off upgraditus. This by far will be my hardest thing to accomplish.

6. Learn to enjoy what I have, knowing that it’s much more than what most people have or can afford.


What I eventually would like to have in my system; the wish list:

1. A new TV (50-60in). Whenever I get around to posting my system you’ll understand why. Even my wife agrees with this. Bless her heart!

2. Add a DVR to the system, again at my wife’s suggestion. She’s a keeper…

3. A new sub. I’d like a Descent, but I fear that saving for my kids’ college education is a much higher priority.

4. Upgrade my amp. To what, I haven’t decided on yet. I have the itch to try something different. This is related to items 5 and 6 above.

Mark,

Thanks for your good sence of humor... :D
You know I've always thought your system is fantastic and would be great to see how you have it set-up in your home. I'll try not to nag you too much... :)

Simple -

I have only one:

Not to spend any money on equipment this year!

There are just too many other priorities, including trying to fund a complete career change, to allow me to spend any more money on audio gear.

Cheers,

David
