Wondering how people allocate their total dollars among their systems. I just stepped back and totaled up the places I have put money into my system. (I am using the actual price paid not MSRP. Some of my stuff was purchased used.) Here is my current percentage allocation in my system. Frankly, I may have put too much into certain areas and not enough in others. Feel fee to question my allocations. What are your allocations in these categories?
% of System 20% Speakers / Subs / Transducers 17% Power Cables / Power Regeneration (e.g. P15) / Power Conditioning 14% System Rack, Platform, Vibration Mitigation Devices 13% Preamplifier 10% Amplifiers 9% Digital (DAC, Server, Cabling, Library Management) 6% Room Acoustic Treatments 5% Analog Setup (TT, Cartridge, Phono Preamp) 3% Interconnects 2% Speaker Cables 1% Tubes/Wear Items
