Now I really have shrunk the HiFi

Postby johnandvirginia » Fri Mar 09, 2018 5:09 pm

In 2015 I talked about the possibility of needing to reduce my HiFi box count. Three years on and I have taken action! I have bought a Bel Canto C7R ( probably the last purchase I will ever make from Bill Huston Aanvil Audio). I have retained the BC CD2 ( powered by 12v adapter rather than VBS),the Naim Streamer and Power supply and (for the moment) the David Berning amp.
Out goes the BC Pre3, the DAC3.3 and the VBS. The C7R also has a good Phono stage so I can dispense with the Lehmann Black Cube.
I was a bit nervous as you can imagine but so far I am pretty impressed with the sound from the little C7R. Do I really need to keep the David Berning?
Any thoughts on sale prices for the Bel Canto bits would be much appreciated.
