I finally took the plunge and REGISTERED! Hi everyone.

I'm constantly acquiring higher end audio to audition (and not "un-acquiring" fast enough, so I've been told...). It's a disease. I currently have the following in the "sound room". Focal 716's, B&W DM303's, Linn Keilidh, Definitive Technology Power Monitor 700's, Infinity RS-3B (bookshelf - one hell of a deal), and a pair of Thiel CS 2.2's (currently be refinished - keepers).

Amps at this time include Yamaha P5000S, Crown Power Line Three, Adcom GFA-5800 (recently sold) & GFA-545. My reference system in the sky was my Acoustat 2+2's with bridged NAD amps (300 wpc).

Preamp: NAD 1155

Currently on the bench is an Electra SA-2000. It's an old tube amp - maybe 5 wpc? Blows its fuse, so it needs some TLC. Should be fun to play with... thinking of bi-amping the Keilidh's and running the top end with this amp. Probably not enough umph to do the job - we'll see. (it's why mucking around is so much fun)
