- U-Turn Orbit turntable (cheap but good for the price; I don't use it that much so it's perfect for me)
- Nagaoka MP-150 cartridge (I don't see myself upgrading from this. Stylus life is shorter than average and replacement styli are expensive. I use a good stylus for digitizing vinyl and swap out to a cheaper MP-110 stylus for general listening)
- Music Hall pa1.2 phono stage (replaced the below). Always thought Music Hall's turntables are overpriced garbage and it seems that extends to their other equipment as well. Not awful, but poor quality for the money.
- Ming Da something-or-other tube phono stage, eventually got rid of it and replaced it with the above. Got it cheap on eBay and it was a cheap piece of Chinese shit that's literally defective right out of the box. If you know an electrical engineer it can be made into a good piece of equipment. Moral is that no matter how cool and well-designed something looks, with Chinese stuff it's often of substandard quality -- especially on eBay.
- Antique Sound Lab MG Head/DT OTL 32 tube preamp and headphone amp. The best piece of gear I have. Built to last forever (even as a Chinese import) with great sound. I retired this only because of the overhaul I was talking about.
- homemade 45 single-ended triode amplifier (good sound, not as good as the hype. SET circuits are usually pretty simple and it was built from a kit so it's hard to mess this one up).
- Sennheiser HD600 headphones for home
- some $20 pair of around-the-ear headphones for when I'm out or using my phone. Perfectly serviceable.
- A pair of Audio Nirvana full-range-driver speakers (highly sensitive for the SET amp.) Sounds good, can't really use them much because of my living situation and the lovely young lady who lives below me who left the garbage disposal running all night.
- Monarchy 18B DAC - another good piece of Chinese equipment. I can't really tell one DAC from another but this, too, was built like a tank and I stopped using it only because of the overhaul.
- I don't believe in magic wire so RCA cables from Amazon, speaker wire from Home Depot (put banana plugs and pins on them), and a dipole FM antenna from some Amazon seller.
After all this I went full-clueless-middle-aged-guy-taking-convenience-into-account and replaced my headphone amp, preamp, power amp, phono stage, and DAC with a Cambridge AXR100 receiver, which is what I use now. I still have the old equipment for if I ever need it. The phono stage is better than the Music Hall from A/B testing, but with vinyl it's hard to do an ABX test because the patterns of surface noise are different between recordings of the two.
