thanks. it will all depend on how the system pulls together. I think the XS will do great for what I want to do; and If I feel the need to move up, I can add the NAP200 to the XS and run the XS as a pre-amp. Of course I could add a TeddyCap or FlatCap also. I think this and some 260s will put me right where I need to be tho. Itll be slow and steady tho.
