Reason being: Nice big fat bonus check from HQ. I wish I had got it sooner so I could have taken advantage of some of the holiday sales, but I had to be sure first.
Anyway, I like my LSi9s. and want to give them a shot with some new gear. If I need a speaker upgrade too, so be it. Right now, I am using them with the HSU sub for 2 channel (blasphemy, I know) and the Emotiva gear (MORE blasphemy!). It all sounds fine, and I like it. But right now, I can pretend that I am a branch of the US Government and throw a bunch of money at a problem that doesn't exist.
I would like to keep it below 10K though. Even though I don't have to. I've been wanting to enlarge my listening room, and figured the easiest way to do it would be to knock down the walls with the stereo system (just kidding, dammit).
I'm very attracted to Parasound gear for some reason. I like the Halo P3 preamp, and the A23 amp. The A21 amp seems to me like overkill for a pair of LSi9's. I'm going to lose the sub for the time being, to see how I like it that way.
Good choices?? Any suggestions are welcome.
Sorry for the long post.
