Thanks for all the responses!
CPU8088 - The NAD looks interesting; are you familiar with the Pioneer Elite A-35R? I picked up on that from the "minimalist" current thread. Interesting; along with the Oppo Digital DV-970HD.
Miles Davis Backwards - I'm not dead set against new stuff (reference my response above). I was just thinking that I could get a really good used piece for less than I'd be paying for a new one. Maybe not. Kinda like a choice between a 5 year old Lexus and a brand new Kia for the same money. The Lexus will always be a Lexus and the Kia, well you know. So what was the deal with the Rotel? I thought those were quality pieces.
Last Place - Thanks for the tip, but Bonner Springs Kansas is several hundred miles from me. If it were local I'd have a look. I have been watchng the St. Louis Craig's List. I just picked up a Cambridge Soundworks 12" powered sub for $50 but that's another story...
Ovation - If I was looking to spend $650 that Outlaw RR2150 would be right at the top of my list! At this point, however, I am not there.
This evening I dug into my basement storage and pulled out my old Hafler DH220 power amp and plugged in a Sony ES CD player from days gone by. I've always loved that Hafler. I guess I just want something new (to me). If the DCM Time Frames were not so inefficient I would consider trying one of those Sonic Impact Super T amps. The idea of such a small, inexpensive amp really appeals to me.
I guess I may just keep checking my local Craig's List and enjoy David Hafler's DH220 in the mean time.
This Forum is a wonderful resource. Thanks again, guys(and/or gals)!
