No clue when the speaks will be ready. I think the main thing I am waiting for is for the new woofer supplier to be up and running... same as the old TCSounds with minor improvements. No update from Jim this week. Last i heard from him he had about 50 pairs of speakers in various stages of production! I'm not sure when he sleeps....
amp/ pre combo still up in the air. Musical Fidelity A5.5 might be the winner for me, as it has a couple of features that I like a lot. Namely the HT bypass, and usb in (with a good DAC I could run it right off my computer, and skip the squeezebox/sonos), and it would save some space. On the other hand I still really dig the Halo amp, and the McCormack but I am still pretty clueless about a stand alone pre-amp...
Either way, I have some more time to figure it out.
And we are still waiting for some detailed impressions there Monitor-boy !!!
