Yes, because many new users don't want to spend a ton of money on a pair of bookshelfs and many only have a small budget. The Ascend, HSU and Arx are probably top in their price ranges, those 3 seem to be the standard in the $300-500ish price range. I don't know if your making a snide remark or just stating the obvious but many on AVS put the money in things that actually make a difference and thats speakers, subwoofers and treating the room and not wasting 50% of their budget on fancy voodoo audiophile speaker wire and dac's. So if makes no sense to recommend a $500 DAC to someone wanting a $1000 5.0 setup.

That is why Arx, HSU and Ascend get recommended quality budget speakers.

well, since you asked...

From HeadFi, your system
From AVS, your system
From AC, your Vapor Cirrus order

And you changed your transport from the Oppo93 to the Marantz because the McIntosh engineer told you to.

From HeadFi re: cables
From AVS re: cables

From AH, incorrectly spelling surround as "sorround"
From AVS, incorrectly spelling surround as "sorround":
"And you can get this with 2 speakers. Not 5 and sorround sound blah.."

From AC, re: Dueland caps
From AVS, re Dueland caps

From HF, re BMC PureDAC
From AVS, re BMC PureDAC

Not to mention the consistent misspelling of Duelund.

The gig is up NAIM101.

Great detective work in those two posts laulau.

newc33 at least you've had an interesting thread hi-jack. Make you want a $3000 (msrp) DAC? $ 4000 bookshelves (Vapor Cirrus)? Expensive "interconnects"?

Should think twice before calling anyone a "poser" if you are not sure.

Not only are you a serial pest, but you're not very clever are you?

That bit doesn't make any sense and the rest is an irrelevant, repetitive smokescreen. If "that guy" took all your advices (sic) and has managed to duplicate "your"* gear 100%, who do you post as on those forums? Can you link us to your recommendations on which "that guy" (SearchOfSub) based his decisions? No, of course you can't.

Really thrashing around for the escape hatch now aren't you?!?
