Are there other people like me ? Amazed by their low cost system :)

Are there other people so much amazed by a relatively low cost system , they consider that is not a stopgap but instead a minimally satisfying ectasy... Each day i am amazed by my speakers and headphone... Am i deaf? Am i ignorant of high end ? Be assured that i know better system with higher acoustic experience and more refined exist ...

My point is an experienced and felt minimal threshold of acoustic qualities and well done and well realized and well manifested acoustic factors exist for me and are at play, for the price invested; so much so , i consider any upgrade way less tempting and if possible would be more, way more , costlier to appear as a real upgrade in quality... For sure an upgrade of part at low cost unbeknowst to me is possible but i must live with what i have for now but i feel no frustration at all. 😊

Am i the only one deluded in this way or enlightened in this way ? Pick your choice of word.... 😎


I have to say, @mahgister , that at times I wish I could take a puff of whatever it is that you’re smoking, in hopes to be able to 1) go thru your posts and 2) understand what you’re trying to say. But we already had this conversation and I failed miserably. Lol

If you do not care for the content or cannot understand it, move along, why be rude. Every picture tells a story don't it. 

I don't have a low cost system BUT one of my most outstanding pieces of gear is also my least expensive. After excessive building of high rise's in my neighborhood  made FM reception impossible I stuck my toe in the water and bought an Ocean Digital WR 10 internet 'Tuner'  ($179) I bought a good either-net cable, upgraded the power supply to an IFI wall wart ($50) and bought a used Monarchy DIP re-clocker ($199)

Hooked up to my Kora DAC it sounds AMAZING! 

Sometimes, with a few low cost upgrades, you can take a humble piece of kit and turn it into a giant killer!
