Holy Crap everyone!!
I finally got to experience some high end gear. Last night on my way home from work, I decided to stop in at an audio/video store. It is called Audio Craft in Fairlawn, Oh for anyone in the Akron area.
I got to listen to the Anthem TLP 1 preamp, the Anthem PVA 2 2 channel amp, Paradigm Studio 80's, some random Sony CD player, Monster Cable M2.2s™ Speaker Cable, and some random interconnects. This was my first time listening to gear of this high caliber. It was awesome. I finally understand all the catch phrases about soundstage width & depth, imaging, detail, all that stuff.
It was very cool.
