    I have thought of getting the M series but there are two reasons why I haven’t. First, they don’t have any type of grill cover, and with cats I am not going to leave exposed speakers out for some curious exploration. Second, they only come in black. So, for now, I will stay with the S series.

    Sony XA-5400ES SACD; Pass XP-22 pre; X600.5 amps
    Magico S5 MKII Mcast Rose speakers; SPOD spikes

    Shunyata Triton v3/Typhon QR on source, Denali 2000 (2) on amps
    Shunyata Sigma XLR analog ICs, Sigma speaker cables
    Shunyata Sigma HC (2), Sigma Analog, Sigma Digital, Z Anaconda (3) power cables

    I was able to spend Saturday night from 8-11 in the United Home Audio room with that BR-20 that had been completely refurbed. I was amazed.

    umm... maybe it's just me... but isn't Standard Max kind of an oxymoron?

    :#;)

    PS what is all that crud that appears to be on the platter? Some kind of acoustic treatment -- or maybe just an unflattering trick of the light? :|
    Is there no audiophile Windex?

    lol You got your Standard Line, Standard Max and then the Reference. The Standard Max is $19,995.

    Maybe that is audiophile Stick-em, prevents record from slipping? :D It could be marring based on pic of a new one? Dirt?

    It was awesome. The sound was effortless.

    I was also impressed with the Bolder/SF room on Saturday. But when I revisited on Sunday something was not right about it.

    The Luxman room with the Magico's was top notch.

    I also spent about an hour listening to the TAD Compact Reference Ones. They were nice.

    But I can't get over how impressed I was with the United Home Audio room with the R2R and VAC components driving Acora Acoustic speakers. I got to spend about 5 hours total over the weekend listening to different types of music on both the R2R and turntable on this system. (I need a powerball win!!!)
