Believe me when I say it has taken years to build my system

Have you thought of buying used? The money you would save on the used JRTs could go to funding an amp, or at least the start of a fund for a new amp.
Thanks Ted,

Haven't written anything off. I actually have been watching this classified section, ebay, audiogon for possible deals. My main concern is hearing the equipment before buying anything (especially speakers).

I plan to add amps for my front speakers to take the load off the Denon. That part is pretty straight forward. In the past I had a McIntosh amp that I absolutely loved. It's a possibility but pretty pricey to buy a bunch of them.

I'm kind of stuck on the sound signiture. I feel like if I can handle that piece, it will all be ok. There are plenty of quality, powerful amps that would be capable to drive any of the speakers on my list.

This is a crazy game that doesn't stand still for a minute. You can make yourself crazy trying to follow (or keep up with) all the changes. Appeciate your help, thx!!

Jeff

Jeff,

Check out Usaudiomart.com also. I've seen some good deals on that site. Buying used you just need to be patient. The other plus is that if the sale location is driveable, you usually can demo before you buy.

I picked up a new Meridian HD621, so my system is back to Lossless digital audio. I still need to dial everything back in and rerun the room correction but things are sounding pretty good.

I'm going to post my Oppo 83 and a Octava 4x2 HDMI switcher with 7.1 audio out in the classifieds soon if anyone is interested.
