    Name your ultimate match up...
    Receiver or AMP/combo and one source unit and two main speakers only... It's all about keeping it simple, and only name the mfg., not like, the model numbers and stuff, for example:

    Halcro ampliflication with Wilson Audio speakers and a Meridian CD for the source.

    Ummmmm!

    Gryphon Trident speakers powered by Gryphon Antileon amps and Gryphon Mikado CD player. I've heard this setup at a convention and was floored! Just think...it's only around $250,000.

    You should hear the Poseidon or any big panel speaker then!!!

    There is only one thing better then surface area, and that is more surface area ;-)

    Although the speakers were VS-9se, and the source was DAT master tape. The DartZeel was overkill though, even with just a watt of power those speakers could shake the walls!

    I think the DartZeels are used less for their wattage per se, moreso for their ability to handle difficult amplifier loads...

    Yes, the VR-9s are also quite a speaker... They kind of reminded me of the VR-11s, but cut in half. One half of a VR-11 would be more than plenty for most folks.

    I wouldn't mind either the Gryphon Trident or Poseidon's. I liked your idea Flo of using their reference for the bass panel.

    Wilson WP7's
    ARC mono's
    Wadia transport/dac

    or

    VR11's
    VAC Mono's
    Meitner transport/dac

    BTW, for those of you unfamiliar with the Von Schweikert's, they are 15hz-35khz (+/- 1) or 10hz-50khz (+/-6) with 99dB sensitivity. The specs aren't an exaggeration, trust me. Oh yeah, they only weight 693 lbs...each!

    You know that its not that hard to do right? Besides, at what distance and at what level....you guys can build something like that.

    I feel like a kid in a candy store. Where to start? What to pick? There is too much that is too good.
