Some of the most important for me, were and is, the foundation of good sound and the first is a treated room
( first reflection points & Bass traps), good speaker placement & seating position within the room
( Toe in, rake , spacing etc..)and clean power unrestricted power
( dedicated lines good cables and power conditioners) If one is of the mind set that cable selection doesn't matter, then this point is moot ! but I take the approach that it all matters and once the big stuff is done the details in between can get that last bit of sought after performance and may indeed surprise one . Ask yourself this and others as well, when installing a new piece of gear,and initially using the same speaker position find the sound different for the good or bad, is it less bass ? are the highs to forward? is the overall sound integrating like the piece it replaced that you may have liked? Now comes the big question how many will readjust their speakers toe in , rake and spacing to either compensate or flesh out the potentially good sound the newer piece of gear may indeed have! How many are willing to try a different cable? Well I do
and because of such effort and knowing my room and selection of gear ( because of daily use and countless hours of listening, trust me the new gear placebo' wears off quickly) I know a change in my setup and I've gotten down to where I know just what it will take to get the sound just where I want it !
Feel free to pm me for any tips on setup

How many experience you got with listing?
I have heard many high end setups. Like kef blades, focal grande utopia, marten miles getz django, isophons cassianos.
I have installed serveral audyssey pro calibrations at peoples home, so i am not quite a noob in installing calibrating.
I'm sure that Cinemike mod is great and look forward to your findings on it and your status is not in question
As for setups I heard many but after many years I can finally come home and enjoy my own system setup just how I like it
