Thanks for the input AVfile - that's good to know too..

I have the W5 mated to a P7 and a Supernova CD player and I am pretty happy with the sound at this point. I certainly don't want to look...

MLM

I also own a W-5 that has been in service for quite a while.. I'd be very interested to hear what you find out about any available "upgrades and maintenance" for that unit. I've wondered...

Well I'm certainly not holding my breath for xbox 360 emulation for any/all of the reasons previously stated, but if they wanted to up their sales numbers tomorrow - they'd think about it some more....

Hell ... All they'd have to do for me at this point is come up with a quality XB360 emulator and I'm in (would be nice to be able to keep controllers connected too)... Lack of backward compatibility...

Finding ground-loop issues is a hassle for sure, but even though it's painful, the easiest way to do it is to just unplug everything.. Then and just plug in and power up each component one at a time,...

Shelly40-

I had a SSP600 for a long time and I loved it, but I have to admit the P7 I have now handily exceeds it for 2 channel stereo. I'm sure the SSP800 is probably a step up, especially if...

FWIW (not much I'd guess) I've seen Sim gear demo'd with Cardas on several occasions, so I'd hope it's a good combo.. I know nothing about Transparent Audio, and I personally run Kimber on my stuff...

Rick-

You'll have to make that decision for yourself, but I think it would be really tough to beat your current SSP800/Titan combo - especially if you have current-hungry speakers. As a former...

I'd think any of those would be well worth looking into, maybe a nod toward Anthem if you require room correction, but you'd have to determine what priority to give that feature. Are you not happy...
