My local dealer has me convinced I must buy the Arcam AV8 pre/pro. The rest of the system is all Vandersteen speakers, 3a's in front 2 sigs in the rear, two v2w subs and a vcc-5 center channel. The amp is a mcormack dna 225 and the universal player has yet to be determined. I want high-end 2-channel sound and i want to hear other combinations of pre/pro and amp that might give me better 2-channel sound with the vandy setup in a HT system. Any ideas for the universal player would help too! Thanks ahead of time!
