EdS make us drool. What is your current set up?
I am a long time McIntosh fan; I have owned their equipment for 35 years. I recently upgraded my system from the Mac equipment I bought back in 1978 (which still works perfectly by the way). I own the MC 207 amp, which carries 200 watts, into 7 channels, whether the speakers are 4 or 8 ohm. The AV control center (pre-amp) is a McIntosh MX 121. It has amazing flexibility for use as home theater or just quality two channel listening. Features I like are the ability to custom set the surround sound to the room and your favorite sitting position IN the room, the multiple HMDI inputs, numerous preset surround sound modes, ability to handle mulitiple digital as well as analog inputs, the thing is a beast. My speakers are all Bowers & Wilkins, (front, back, center and sub). They provide a very clean, flat frequency response and can handle the 200 watts per channel with no problem. This system litterally, has distortion levels that are below the abilty of the human ear to hear. After all my years woodworking, my ears are far from perfect, but this system is just perfect for me, and I am very picky about my sound.

One very cool add on feature I have (this will work with any audio system) is to buy the Apple Airport express. It is a $100 plug in device that acts as an extension of your computer router and streams music from your computer to your home sound system. Couple that with a free AP on your IPhone, and you can sit on your couch, access all the songs on your computer, punch one button and hear the song through your sound system. I love it. I buy a lot of music from ITunes, load it on my phone and computer and have access to all of it either just on the phone, in the car, on the computer or through my home system.

Nice. I am still in the solid state world. For my head unit I have an NAD driving my paradigm set up with a sunfire sub.

I am a big fan of spendors. I love how full they sound at low pressure levels.

When I grow up I hope to be like you.
