Sigh. I’ve gone and done it

I didn’t want to post this in a specific thread because it’s about multiple components, but now that I’m retired (finally!) and anticipating my audio budget to diminish over time due to lack of continuous feeding, I figured I’d just quicken the pace by ordering a P20 and the new Perfectwave SACD Transport. :roll_eyes: :frowning: :grin:

I called Joey and we worked out a deal I found hard to refuse, so I figured if I don’t do it now, the chances of being able to some time in the future will be less. Yes, I have the P15, but you people yammering on about how the P20 is an improvement over even a P15 (you know who you are… @Paul and others! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:) put the classic audio peer pressure on me. That plus the new transport worked out being in my favor for the upgrade path. Yeah, that’s what I’ll tell myself. Buying two things instead of one works in my favor! :man_facepalming:

D@mn it all - I’m getting almost as bad as @aangen! :joy:

When I was still blessed with my wife’s company on this Earth, she was a true audio buddy. :slightly_smiling_face: She loved music and had a great ear, oftentimes being my listening partner during upgrades. She’d get a little exasperated sometimes with the costs of some of these upgrades, but she knew it was my hobby and let me play in the sandbox. A rare individual.

I am so very envious, seriously.
When my new speakers come I’m a Deadman.

Are you talking about those huge ice cream cones? You mean to tell me she doesn’t know it’s coming? Boy, are you in trouble. :rofl: :upside_down_face: :grin:

She has no idea I am what I am.
And last week I bought a motorcycle.
A second motorcycle.
I have upgrade disease. There is no cure.

Congrats @tony22

There is not much better than musical bliss. I look forward to hearing the upgrades.

Thank you, Al. I was truly a lucky man.

Thanks @senna1a. The big trick will be to see how long it takes me to actually get my system set back up. My new house is currently full of close to 200 boxes. Practically every room has boxes in it. :roll_eyes: Not looking forward to that bit of work.
