After nearly 7 years, I think it's time to create a thread for my journey, in the hopes that it may inspire or help others with their own audiophile ambitions.

I will post more photos and videos of playback over the next few months.

While my audiophile journey...

I just spent over six hours today listening to my friend's new Wilson Audio Chronosonic XVX loudspeakers.

I haven't heard anything about their 2a3, and not much more about their 300B.
