    Meh, Receivers are for the weak eared folk :)

    Solid State Reference Amps FTW :cool:
    Can't beat it... 200 x 2 @ 8ohm RMS, .002% THD, 10hz-100khz @ 8ohm 50% power .000%THD, 124db SNR and you really can't touch the dynamic headroom which I should really test sometime. **That's my Yamaha M-70, it powers my mains**

    But for high quality recievers, I can't say much can touch a high end pioneer elite, short of a top tier Yamaha, Denon or Onkyo.
    Don't know if Marantz is still in the game really.

    ****
    Thanks for the info on the 280's... I was looking at a few other sets too, I just know I love all the other Senns I have owned.

    Ya, I'm not the biggest fan of Yamaha receivers myself, you pay a pretty hefty premium still based on their great name from the '70s and '80s.

    My setup is good! (400th post! :) )

    Triangle COMETE Ex speakers, with a massive crossover and bracing upgrade inside:
    [​IMG]

    Amp is a valve amp - Yaqin M10-L with upgraded tubes. Didn't get a good pic myself but it's this one:
    [​IMG]

    DAC is a Micromega MyDAC, a newish DAC but apparently beats most comparatively priced DACs... (also good power and phono cables):
    [​IMG]

    Finally my power and speaker cables. The toffee is for size comparison :)
    [​IMG]

    I also have one of these BK XLS200 DF subs hooked up to the amp:
    [​IMG]
    (that driver is 10" wide)

    Let's see yours... I see a couple of really nice ones already at least!

    Yeah, I remember there was a period of six to nine months when you were like "screw TPU" and left, but inevitably come back. We all do. TPU is like Hotel California, you can never leave.:laugh:

    Millennium - that valve amp looks lovely. When you say upgraded tubes did you do that or was it purchased that way?

    Jbl - hello and welcome :) some very helpful guys n gals on here. Tones and tones of info :)

    Glad to see intrest in this again. Bet there's some more amazing audio rigs owned by you lot. Photos photos photos!!!!!!

    Total price paid $477. Would have been about $417 had I waited a couple weeks for a price drop on the AVR. The surrounds are not as small as they look in the pic. They actually have the same size mids as the center.
