Mes...16, tell us all more about your room like size for example, seating distance from the screen, acoustics or present room design and purpose.

With more information you will get better input and suggestions from other experienced members.

All the Best, Sandy
Following Sandy's advice, I took a look at Parasound and landed on their Halo Integrated Amplifier (2.1). I should get it in a sometime next week and can't wait to integrate it into my system. For now, it will run my Triton Sevens and eventually run either Triton Two+'s or Ones.

How do you like the Parasound? I'm thinking of getting the same one to drive my T2's. A friend has the Halo in his high end system, and it sounds excellent, very natural and well balanced. Is it able to drive the T7's pretty loud without distortion?

I really like it! I have it sitting up front with the Sevens and in which it's "cutoff" from my other AV gear when listening to music. Given that I historically ran the speakers off my Marantz AVR in the back media closet, I was able to eliminate my long speaker runs from the back of the room to the front. Instead, I now have two 15ft cable runs with 10AWG Blue Jeans cables, so I feel this setup gives me a simplistic, yet very high quality 2(.1) channel setup. At this point, I've yet to use anything but the USB input, but am extremely pleased.

I'd say all the reviews are accurate in that it offers plenty of power and is very much neutral. With the Sevens, I rarely go beyond 25% of the available volume on tap with no audible distortion (same comment when I get brave [and stupid] enough to crank it to 50%). I suspect with the Ones, Twos, etc., it will have no problem easily running them due to the Triton's high efficiency rating, coupled with the fact that the Triton Ones, Twos, and Threes offload the bass to the onboard amps.

I drove to San Antonio (from Houston) this past weekend to listen to Mike Lang at Bjorns. He stated that Sandy was very pleased last year when he ran into a booth running Triton Ones and the Parasound Halo Integrated...so much so that he now recommends them as a great pairing with his product (see his response to my previous question).

Thanks for the input. I am using the Oppo 105 as my preamp/processor, driving amps in my 5.1 system. It has a great DAC section, so the Halo is a bit redundant in that regard as it uses almost the same DAC chipset. However the Halo is more flexible and should do a much better job at bass management between the T2's and my SVS, which is a problem with the Oppo setup. I'm still on the fence, but it's great to know that it's a great match with GE.

BTW I also use Mac+ Audirvana and then through an iFi iUSB for some of my listening
