Recently upgraded to an all-Gallo system: Reference 3s for Front L/R, and Dues for Center and Rear L/R. I also have an Earthquake MKIV 10" sub to handle the .1 duites
The sound is *fantastic* - open, articulate, *fast*, with great dispersion. This system has to handle 2 channel "audiophile" listening in addition to being a home theater system. And, because it is used by my wife and kids, it has to be *easy* to use.
To that end, I've programmed a Marantz RC 2000 MKII remote to handle the day-to-day operations - 1 button can turn everything on and select the desired source and 1 button can turn everything off.
The video is displayed using an Hitachi 51F710 HDTV (rear projection).
I also chose my pre-processor and amp for ease-of-use and great sound. I'm running a Harman-Kardon Signature 2.0 pre-processor linked to a Harman-Kardon 2.1 5 channel amp. 100-150 watts per channel and +- 100 amps of current!! And, believe me, the Gallos LOVE a high-current amplifier.
Input sources are a Harman-Kardon DVD50 multi-disc changer, a Denon 2910 DVD player, a Bang and Olufsen BG 9000 turntable, a Rio Karma MP3 player, and a LinkSys Wireless MusicBridge. Yeah, I got the input thing *covered*.
I'd say this system is pretty much complete - I'm quite satisfied with the sound and picture. And the wife and kiddies can use it without having to call me for tech support all the time!
