Well, this is going in my office, for my desk. Basically I can put the MF on the desk, I have a place for it. If I go parasound, the pre amp will go on my desk, and the amp will go in a rack built into the desk (I am building the desk right now, and rack space will be a part of it either way). Longer term I do not expect to upgrade these speakers... I had always envisioned B&W 805s here, but in near field they do not have the same smoothness as they would in normal listening positions, and I cannot get the tweeters at ear level with a speaker quite that big. The Eras are surprisingly great in nearfield and not much of a compromise overall.
