Ok Someone On The Forum Asked Where We All Started.
I Want To Know Where Are You Going ?

What is the system of yours dreams or the one that will bring you satisfaction. Well at least for now...?

I'm not going to start because I'm not sure yet...;)

    My ideal system down the road. Although I'll probably start with an RTI setup due to coin deficiency. The latest Rotel with an amp for 7.1 if needed, the latest LSI's, a storm 3 and a vamped up center on steroids. I'd love to hear an LSIC with the LSI9's standing proudly by its side. Or whatever is next on the LSI bookshelf line.

    3 of the top 5 systems I've ever heard were horns on low wattage tube amps. The other 2 were electrostatic or ribbon on higher wattage tubes. Right now I don't have the room for big horns or properly placed electro's, so I'm persuing the possibilities of single drivers.

    The master plan is to have all of it. I'll swap out according to my listening taste and mood.

    that's probably a $30,000 dCS CD player. those amps are "the best ever" according to stereophiles review a few months ago, and how can you go wrong with the dynaudio Evidence! of course all of that is overkill in that little room!

    A top-flight 3 changer/1 recorder universal changer/recorder with a firewire (?) digital out for SACD/DVD-A.
    A top-flight pre-pro that processes every format of 7 channels or less & has true, complete bass mgmt.
    7 Marantz mono amps.
    Speakers, not sure, but for the sake of the Polk Forum, will say 2 LSi 15's, an LSi ctr, 4 LSi 7's, & unknown sub.

    I would especially like to hear that system in THAT room. Look at the slanted ceiling. Non-parallel room surfaces. Standing wave killers. Anybody that can afford that stuff, SHOULD be putting it in a room that can let the system really strut its stuff. Bet the room isn't that small.

    Dream system. Well based on what I have listened to, I still favor the SDA series.
    I think a nice pair of SRS 2.3's, or maybe the original SDA2's
    Bi-amped with some Rotel power Maybe 250W Botton 150W top
    Maybe use my LSI9's for the rear @ 150W
    Throw in a plasma TV for good measure

    Micro-brewed beer on tap, and nekked women to serve it :p

    Hell might as well hit the lotery for a couple ten mill while I'm at it.

    Polk SDA-1C's
    Polk SDA-2
    Polk Monitor 10B's

    Polk 5 jr's

    Polk CSI40 Center

    I dunno. I pretty much have my dream system for now.

    After letting 1 amp go, adding a sub, and spending some time getting it dialed in, the 2 channel rig sounds pretty satisfying. Right now, I'd say that my turntable is the big weak link from a component standpoint, and is the obvious candidate for an upgrade. But I'm going to have a tough time justifying the scratch for this for quite some time.

    My preamp and CDP are due for a factory upgrade and retubing. I'm especially looking forward to getting rid of the HDCD DAC chip, and getting something more musical.

    I'd also like to invest the scratch into pouring a separate foundation, detached from the house, for the turntable, and possibly for the speakers as well. I think that would be the ultimate in vibration control in my room.

    The big thing that I'm lusting after right now is built-in LP shelving and lighting. Something that will look really great and function well.

    After that, who knows?

    Damn Zen Dragon,

    I hear you ! Why not have it all.

    rlw,

    You're completely insane, You want to pour a separate foundation, detached from the house for the turntable. If I was king you'd have to have it. I'm loving this for real.

    My vcr is showing its age. Like me, it is starting to have little problems here and there. I just hope it (and me) can hang on long enough so I can check out the next generation of dvd recorders with hard drive. The new pioneer is due out this spring. Have not heard about other brands, but some are sure to follow.

    Need to get a new mega cd changer and a SACD/DVDAUDIO/DVD player. My tv is about 10 years old, and those plasmas are sure looking nice. This hobby is so addicting! Well at least I won't need new speakers or pre/amp for awhile.

    George.

    I'm with you about those big Dynaudios. They have to sound fantastic. I have heard the danes, that are a few steps down from those and they were great.

    new system not so far away,a couple months and it will be finished.
    1)Sharp XV-Z10000 DLP projector
    2)Stewart Firehawk 100 inch screen(size will be adjusted after some measuring in the room)
    3)B&K ref50 preamp
    4)B&K ref200.5 amp

    11)Salamander 70" black with silver poles rack.
    12)Monsterpower Htps7000
    13)Monsterpower Avs2000
    Thats the short list for now.The gear rack will be built in the wall.The back of he rack will be inside a gear/software room.The rack will also have casters on it so I can move it.The theater room will be 15.5 x 24 x 8.That should be reall close to actual.I measured the space a couple times now where the theater is going to be built.I could go 16 feet wide but will loose some space in the gear room as the stairs come down in the corner behind where the gear room will go.
    I'm going to reuse some gear I already own.
    1)Polk Lsi15's
    2)Pioneer Elite Dv47a(untill the dv49a comes out)
    3)Pioneer Elite Cld-59 laser disc

    I was hoping on a couple of factors with the new rsp1098,they didn't come threw.I still think Rotel is one hell of a company.B&K got a sparkle in my eye.There new amps and preamp this year is something else.The sound quality is even better.

    I thought I had all the audio completed until I tried to hang the 2 fx1000's for back surrounds. Damn if they're just too big. Next upgrade is to 7.1 receiver. Probably Denon 3803, maybe separates if money is flowing freely. After that, it's video. I'm prewired for projector. Been looking at DLP's. Waiting for the Mustang chipset projectors to come down. IMO, HDTV is still a couple of years away, so no big hurry.
    Fronts - LS-90
    Center - CS-400i
    Sides - FX-1000
    Rears - AB755 (2)

    Amp - B&K AVR317

    Geez, guys, what happened to the idea that this was a "2 Channel Audio" forum?

    I have no, zero, nada, zilch desire to read about HT/multi-channel, which is why I hang out on this forum. Maybe ya'll should get Justin and Micah to rename it, and I'll just stop hanging out here.

    joe6pak,

    I'd thank you for the apology, and emphasize that morons don't think [leastwise that's why I call 'em "morons"], and probably say something about booming subwoofers in a HT causing brain damage, but we both know that you really don't give a damn what I think, so I won't bother.

    :D
