I had to get to my laptop to find your thread - interesting read. Those are some very interesting speakers you went with - look amazing. I am surprised the UPA-7 hung with the much more powerful Sunfire (seriously different price). I am not in the position to buy the NAD at this point (having recently bought 2 Kef XQ40s, an XQ50c, 2 Kef IQ10s, 3 B&W685s, 4 B&W ceiling speakers (6.5& 8), an Onkyo TX-NR1008 and a Denon 4310 receiver) - need to put some time before the next serious purchase. The sale on the Emotiva's go until the 15th of July so they are an outside possibility. Otherwise I am looking towards year end to approach the wife with something else.
Main Kef: Reference 205/2 & 202/2c, Surrounds: Kef XQ40, Velodyne Optimum 12, Integra DHC 80.3, Ayre K-5xeMP, Oppo BDP-103, Bryston 4Bsst2, Parasound Halo A31. Second B&W: 685 (3), CCM618, Def Tech Powerfield 1500, Onkyo TX-NR1008, Zone 2 Klipsch AW650.
