What would you do?
Ok, here's my latest dilemma.....right now I have my current home theater done as a hybrid theater/HiFi setup kind of like the Reference Home Theater system on the McIntosh site. Obviously I'm going to upgrade the processor to the 170, but on the HiFi side I'm running a C47, MEN220 RoomPerfect and MCT450 with the DIN input for SACD on the C47 and an MT5 turntable with the MP100 phono preamp. With the 170 having RoomPerfect I'm debating consolidating the system to make more room in my cabinet for airflow. Connecting the phono and phono preamp is easy, however the C47 doesn't have a fixed balanced output. I was thinking of getting a D150 (which there's a really nice used one on eBay right now) just for the ability to listen to my SACD's and CD sound really good on the MCT450. So I would like your opinion, would you keep the hybrid system, or consolidate? I know I could get a decent return if I sold the C47 and MEN220 on eBay, but I kind of like the idea of the hybrid system. I just can't convince myself I really need it right now. HELP!
Thanks in advance.
