    Default Trick new system!

    After all your input, I have completely changed my mind. I was going to go with the RTi4s, the HSU VTF-3 and NAD C372/542. Good, but here is what I bought today:

    Musical Fidelity X-150 Integrated Amp
    Musical Fidelity X-Ray V3 CD player
    Musical Fidelity X-10 V3 Tube Buffer
    Musical Fidelity X-PSU power supply
    JM Labs Electra 906s
    HSU VTF-3 MKII subwoofer
    DH Labs Silversonic Revelation Interconnects
    Silversonic T-14 speaker cables
    Revelation Audio "Passage" power cable
    Signal Cable Powercords (Magicpower & Magicpower Digital)
    Furman line conditioner (PST-8 Digital)

    UNREAL dynamic sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For a dedicated 2-channel, I would ditch the sub. Great system choices.

    Wow man nice stuff. I really liked the way the JM Lab's sounded but they are pretty expensive. I listened them next to some Lsi and I couldn't tell that much of a difference, therefor I went with the Lsi. How do you like the MF cd player? I have the matching integrated amp and I love it :)

    HOLY **** TITS

    Just hooked up all the new Musical Fidelity gear and even using the cheapest of the cheap interconnects (sweet ones still on the brown sleigh), the thing sounds unreal! Can't turn the volume knob very far. This thing has some serious power.

    Looking forward to the arrival of my JM Electra 906s. The RM7500 sats aren't cutting it at the moment although they have never sounded so good.

    Gotta love real Hi-Fi

    WOW - just received my Silversonic Revelation interconnects and my JM Lab 906s. Absolutely beautiful sound and lots of it coming out of those speakers! Cables to come tomorrow which will make even more difference. The new HSU sub integrates wonderfully with the 906s.
