For those of you who had spent over hundred thousand dollars for your sound system.

Do you think, in retrospect, that you could have gotten better sound quality out of your sound system with much less money spend. Do you have any regrets for spending huge amount of $$$? If you can start all over again, what would be different this time around? Let’s talk about electronics only and not room improvement for now. I know they go together, but the subject becomes very broad - assume your room is near perfect for sound reproduction.

P.S. Mike Levine, please don't shy away from the subject.  


The short answer is No, I have no regrets. Its a process that has taken decades to achieve and I am still achieving.  Thats why its a fantastic hobby as each acquisition provides greater pleasure and overall satisfaction  that you put together a system that sounds perfect for your ears.

My regret is not having the $100,000, or even $50,000 to spend on a system to be qualified to contribute to this thread.

No regrets. I am thankful for having the resources to fuel my enjoyment of the hobby and an understanding wife that has made it possible to make it fun not only for us, but for our children (who are now adults) as well.


You made me laugh so hard .  Thank you for the cleaver hummer.  You must be a stand up comic, aren't you?

my system is worth $60,000 but it took me 40 years to get here and there's only one thing I will be changing, that's my speaker wire, I'm going to be upgrading to OCC single Crystal rectangular wire which is even better than the OCC single Crystal round wire that I now use, but other than that I love the sun to my system very natural and three-dimensional.
