NO, let's not do that...
WHY [not have a topic with all "Made in USA" components] ?
For a desk or small room ...NA-208C CD Player ($399)http://www.napaacoustic.com/Electronics.htmlNA-208A Hybrid Vacuum Tube Integrated Amplifier ($399)http://www.napaacoustic.com/Electronics.html NA-208S Compact Monitor Speakers ($199)http://www.napaacoustic.com/Speakers.htmlOr a used pair of high efficiency, easy to drive speakers as alternative as the NA-208S are rated down to 55Hz.I had the amp and speakers in my home - real nice sound. Depending on volume and type of music, low end was acceptable.
Sorta surprised there haven't been more recommended systems so far. Aside from being interesting, I think this is a useful resource for many. If there's something about the idea or original post which is hampering participation, would be interested in comments.Otherwise, I propose a competition for best Sub $1K Recommended System 2012. That is not to preclude 2013+ honors....unless interest totally shrivels on the vine.Some suggested basic rules:1) Worldwide eligibility to post / enter2) System must be posted by 11:59PM EST December 31 2012.3) Propose as many systems as you like - no limit. 4) Two or more components have to be changed from an already posted system to qualify as a different system5) I - or if others join in the selection process - exclude their systems for consideration for the "prize". The winner will either be selected by me, me + other people, or perhaps a "short list" of candidates followed by a voting poll. To be determined. In any case, winner to be decided by 13 January 2013.Prize is your choice of one of the following in your choice of size. My gift & yes, will send it to you wherever you are. You're welcome - and thanks django11 for the unintended prize idea!
What? I didn't win?? This thing is rigged. Or maybe it wasn't rigged and that's the problem.Anyway, I didn't get a shirt I wouldn't wear and is too small for me. I'm heartbroken beyond consolation. I'm gonna make a martini and forget this ever happened. Which is a better outcome than getting the shirt. See, I feel better already.
Has anyone mentioned the floorstanding version of the Tad Jones Pioneer loudspeakers? At $129/pair they would fit well into a sub $1k system. Unlike the highly reviewed and regarded bookshelf version, there seem to be no reviews of this one. As mentioned, add in a $300 network ready receiver and your off and running for under $500. Add $100 for the subwoofer as desired. I haven't seen any reviews on that either.
Are you sure that's 129/pr? I thought that was each? Either way for an ultra-budget <$500 total system there is no better option.
