System Pics 2023

Happy New Year everyone, wishing everyone much joy to be found in your music and systems. Thank you for sharing the love and joy of our hobby and for supporting each other. Community is important and this is a great one.

My main system had a big unexpected change just before Christmas. Out with the 252/SC/250 (all DR) and in with a pre-loved 300 DR/552 DR, speakers the same (Totem Forest Signatures). The sub has moved to the lounge and a full Fraim base is in-coming for the 552 (staying on the crescenda).

The lounge system is unchanged (Nova and Totem Hawks), though the Totem Storm Sub has been moved in (speakers will move further apart after the Christmas tree comes down).

The games room has been simplified. I sold off all my spare gear and grabbed a pre-loved Star to replace the Uniti2 and the little Totem Rainmakers (on a discounted clearance price).

2023 will be about sitting back and enjoying it all. Just awaiting a cable replacement from Witchat, and will look at the NAP 300 4-PIN to XLR mono cable.

That 552 looks the biz Mike. It’s the only temptation that I have and have been resisting for over a year…

Re-posting last years pic as this is another unchanged system. I might do a couple of tweaks to the turntable but the rest is hopefully staying as it is.

Happy New Year to all of you and yours!

Just aware that I have too many systems in 3 different locations but I’ve listened to all of them.






Happy New Year. Wish you all the best.

These are all nice but here in the states we’re still hanging on desperately to 2022. :joy:

I think I’ll wait for my new cartridge and subs to arrive before I post here otherwise. Happy New Year!

I don’t think this forum will see that as a problem :grinning:. Thanks for posting.

Happy New Year!

Thanks for starting the 2023 thread, Mike. Always one of my favourite threads in this place and I look forward to seeing the 2023 contributions :+1:

Happy New Year to all and see you next year. Hope it’s a good one :clinking_glasses::clinking_glasses:

System as of this morning. It’ll be fun to look back at this at the end of the year to see what has changed. Given the excitement over the upcoming “announcements”, the likely effect on the used market and my already scheduled appointment at my dealers in January, I suspect we’ll see changes sooner rather than later.

Happy New Year to you all.

Thanks!

I like to move them a round a bit (there’s a couple more not in shot) every so often. It’s the Roger Waters signature edition, it’s been in the box seat since his Lockdown Sessions album was released earlier in the month (which I am still really enjoying).

Some super pictures in that set.
Particularly like the one with stand mounted Epos speakers :+1:

That is a very cool sideboard. Among many other cool things, too.

I had meant to put this in this thread but put it in system pics 2022
So forgive me for placing same pics




Happy new year to all
