How many....

Unread post by Latteman » Wed Feb 12, 2020 6:41 pm

How many ‘boxes’ do you have that requires power in order for you to enjoy your man cave
In front of me currently are 10 items-
Tv, power amp, turntable (2), phono stage, ps3 (cd & dvd), DAC, Apple box & network switch.
Can u beat that
I only ask as I keep seeing multitasking boxes- dac, cd, pre amp or network hub- feel environmentally ashamed )sometimes) as I sit in front listening with my coffee from the dolce gusto and browsing on the iPhone ✌️
Analogue- ARB modified Funk Firm Vector; Ortofon Mc 10 & MCa step up to Yaqin phono stage
Digital Sources- Little Dot Dac1, Ps3 & Apple TV, Airport Express Cat7 & 8
Amplification-NVA P20 & A20LE
Speakers- Diy Cubettes; Ls6
Mini BMU to dc blocker

Too many to count!
I have an 8 way USB charger and all the outputs are in use too.
