I enjoyed all the photos too.
I LOVE hi-fi, me!
It was my money-drain before photography.
I noticed the pair of Spendor speakers; I used to have SP1 speakers before I got burgled and some **** stole them.
Those ones look kinda like the size of SP1s, but with only 2 drivers like SP2s.
Now I use Dynaudio Audience 52SE, which are smaller and have less bass, but awesome mid and treble.
I'd use electrostatics if I had a bigger room.
Once I've finished buying photo gear (heh, yeah... ), I wanna go back and put more dosh into the hi-fi and get a nice valve amp. Used to have QUAD IIs when I was 18-21 but sold them as I was a poor student. TDP has reworked the QUAD II into a new version, or I might just think about getting one of his own EAR amps.
But I still have at least 3 lenses to buy! Extender 2x, 85Lf/1.2, 24-70LII.
With me...photography looks like an additional money drain.
I have 50th anniversary Klipshorns....running off a couple of Decware (budget when I bought them) SET amplifiers....
Some day..will find some good classic McIntosh tube amps....and I'll be complete...
And now, I'll be able to take quality pictures for insurance purposes...next time a Katrina comes close!!
