Is it time to revive this old thread?
Both my photo gear and hifi priorities have changed since 2011.
Hifi: The McIntosh MR71 tuner, my preamp(s), vinyl collection, turntable, all AMB items etc all gone. I did add a Behringer DEQ2496 eq thing plus the same old Linkwitz speakers. My shelving unit is practically empty! But the sound has never been better: I use the DEQ2496 to auto-eq the system to nicely flat frequency response and the results are simply magnificent. It sounds like something that's been endlessly tweaked, but it takes only a minute or two to execute. Really loving this: I seem to own almost no hifi anymore just the sound.
Cameras: The Leica M8, M9, 28.2.8, 35/2, 40/2 and 50/1, all sold during the Leica-mania years. Am thinking that image quality has become something of a commodity, and sometimes I'm half tempted to simply buy a Canon Rebel plus a couple of good but inexpensive lenses and call it a done deal. I'm increasingly of the opinion that photography is mostly about showing up with a camera.
I'm okay with running a budget surplus
