My current system...
I will not claim to be a super audiophile, when I was younger for a couple years I was sales manager of an high end audio store and had plenty of exposure to the finest products.
Over the years my system has morphed many times from high end audio (with a Rock and R&B focus) to now heavily leaning towards home theater. I am based around a Yamaha DSP2070 and all Klipsch speakers assembled over time. A B&O linear turntable still sees use. and CD source is a Denon top of the line unit from 15 years back. I recently added a used Oppo BDP-105 DVD Blueray, I really like. A PC is part of the system and I have a Toshiba65" LCD that is now 6 years old and right next to it is a new 39" 4k tv that I use as a PC monitor. The 2070 ran initially though a Yamaha B6 (you have to have used these to understand how well the can deliver power as needed and amazing damping) to the mains LaScalas with upgrade to professional drivers to handle up to 200 watts continuous.
The rest of the speakers 4 KG 1.2s and a KV3 center were handled thru 2 Adcom 2335s. A SW-15 does Sub duty. Also in the mix was and Audio Control C-22 and DBX-4BX, adding a need for lots of punch at times. I was quite pleased at most times with the audio sound quality and the ability take the most dramatic home theater challenges and deliver.
About 5 years back age got the the B-6 and I replaced it with a used 200 watt Adcom to match other amps(do not remember the number). Honestly it never lived up. Lower end was never as powerful and always seemed mushy, and the high end lost something... never put my finger on what.
A couple times a year the main amp., LaScalas, and SW-15 take a trip to the local roller skating rink and are used by a family band preforming there. Again, the Adcom never seemed as good as I would like. Then it did me the favor of having problems. The next band appearance was coming and I decided to upgrade and picked the Crown XLS 1500 (due to an awesome review of the XLS amps)... but, one dealer on line had the 2000 for only a few dollars more. Got it... ran it at home a little and though I could not directly compare side by side, not only did it put the Adcom to shame, but the B-6 probably too. Then Band night arrived and off we went to give a different work out in a very large room.... WOW.... that is it... LaScalas have the ability to fill the large area and have before, but not with this clarity and punch...actually it changed how I mixed the SW-15 in. So now over the next year the other Adcoms will be replaced by additional Crown XLS amps, so my whole theater experience can get this delivery.
I also have a second home and will be creating a new theater experience there. Be assured the system will be Yamaha, Crown and Klipsch.
