Subject says it all really. As family, we don't spend fortune on presents (nah kids, obviously different scenario), food a different matter. So, extended family have a secret santa budget of 30 quid. I have a digi and vinyl setup (having just spent £365 on a digi ref rca). I don't write this to show off, but to highlight that many of us use a lot of our limited resources on things the average person would never consider.

So, with this in mind, what, as a hifi/music nut, could i request that I'd actually use, enjoy, or from which I'd get some benefit? This is not to appear ungrateful, I simply hate people spending money for sake, because of time of year.

I actually find it harder to come up with present suggestions myself now as I used to come up with a list of CDs but now I just stream everything from Qobuz there isn't really any point.
