I have had Proac, Paradigm, Mirage and Magnepan

I was waiting around, years actually, for a used pair of Proac Response 3's. After reading the Triangle reviews I bought a used pair of the Celius 202's. Given I use a tube amp and I am over 40 (hearing rolling off) they sound excellent to me. (I plotted them in my room using Room EQ and a Behringer 2496 to fix low freq problems. Even though they are rated to 40hz I get 30hz flat because my room helps. On high freqs they actually roll up a bit over 10K - even with the tube amp. I think my hearing compensates for that)

Equip - AMC Int Tube amp, Systemdek IIX with Goldring 1012GX, Behringer 2486, Denon 1250 CD with Audio Alchemy D/A and jitter reducer, Dakiom stuff, AC/DC/AC converter etc. I treat all first order reflection points - including behind my head and the ceiling.

diamonds, very nice setup It seems like me, you have an integrated 2ch/HT setup as well(see page 3 in this thread.) How do you like the Music Fidelity? I was thinking about using 2 different preamps as well, but I think I am going to focus on getting the Classe SSP600. If it is good for 2ch, that will be it. If not, the search will continue. But again very nice setup.

It ain't easy being green.

Thanks for the compliment on my system.

The Musical Fidelity is amazing!!!! Totally ridiculous how good it is...it is the best CD player I have ever heard.

Remember that a Surround Processor will never sound as good as a dedicated 2 channel preamp that has class A circuitry. But if you are going to just have one preamp the Classe SSP600 is a good choice.

How do you like your Krell??? I have heard good and bad about it???

I am sure your system sounds awesome!!!

Thanks. It has taken many years but I am very happy with how it sounds. I have been happy with the Krell but I feel that it is breaking down. I know that it may be a trade off by going with one pre for both but here is my situation. At the store where I got my Esoteric DV50S they sell Jeff Rowland, Arcam, and Lexicon gear. Now, the Arcam does not have Balanced inputs of my cd player. So that means I would need a Jeff Rowland Pre. But I have read bad things about the Arcam's reliability so out the window it goes. So that leaves Lex+Rowland. And that = serious money that I do not have. So I asked around and the Classe was mentioned. I may try and do two if the store I am going to on Sat has the gear and price range to fit my budget. Also, I have all my gear connected with balanced interconects. And I really don't want to change that.

So Like I said, on Sat I am going to check out some stuff and we shall see what we shall see.

It ain't easy being green.

10T 's , I'm jealous.
How do you like the SR3 's? They are next on my wish list.
My Klipsch surrounds are becoming more and more annoying, as would be expected (when combined with Aerials).
What amps do you use?

RTR's in the 70's
PN6's in the 80's
BP8's in the 90's...1st attempt at HT with PN6's

New wife, kid's and career from mid 90's to date...relegated to 2 speaker stereo only with reduced opportunities to really enjoy the music.

Just replaced my old Yamaha RX-V660 with a HK635

Added a Mirage S12

Plan to move the BP8's to rear surrounds and purchase matching fronts of a different flavor for a 21st century renewed attempt at HT. Excited.

Really enjoyed AVSForum over the past 2-3 months. Very educational updates to much of what I had forgotten related to home audio.

Good thing I handle the finances and the wife has no idea of my expenditures.
