I have wished for the Benz Micro Glider L2 to be in my vinyl set up for some time now and thought it would be nice to end the year on a higher note!
For some funny reason, I am very attracted to it's nude, open body construction. I guess you can say the same about the fairer sex too! Hmmm......
In retrospective, 2008 has been a kind, rewarding and progressive year for me on the hi-fi front. It was the year that saw me switched from tube to solid state pre-amps, I've never had solid state pre-amps before. I've always admired the Pass Labs X2.5 since it made it's appearance here in 2003, but could never quite afford it. Also managed to get my self a good and effective PLC after a few months of auditions. I also re-did my room twice, more than any other time in the last five years.
But this must, mostly be remembered as a year of entering the high end cable search. I've never swapped so many cables before this. And finally ending the year with my recent purchase of the AQ Sky and now the Benz Micro Glider L2. I'll post later, about it once the break in time is achieved.
But most profound to me at least, was to have more hi-fi friends. I also wish to thank all my hi-fi buddies and sifus whom have chipped in to help me advance my sonic rewards. Finally, must thank hifikaki and especially maggielurva, for allowing me, to share my thoughts on this blog. It's been really mind opening for me.
And lastly, a big thank you to all the readers for sharing your kind, "desirable thoughts" with me.
Will be back next year, hopefully with more toys to report, and better hi-fi ideas to share.
Wishing all a "Happy and Bountiful 2009!"
