Sherbourn 5x200w Amplifier
Arcam CD-36 Upsampling 192/24 CD Player
Revel F52 L&R Main Front Speakers
Revel C-52 Center Channel
Paradigm Studio Reference 40 (L&R) Rear Surround Speakers
Paradigm Servo-15 Subwoofer 1200w RMS/ 4500w Peak
Pioneer Elite DV-78AVI DVD/CD/SACD/DVD-Audio Player
Sony DVPNS9100ES Upsampling DVD Player

Sony KDSR60XBR2 60" SXRD XBR HD LCD TV
Panamax 5510 Surge protector w Line Conditioning

NOW, I'm just waiting on the Sony BDPS1 and I will have come full circle!

Yep!, I'm single and don't have to justify my expenditures !!!

I dig your Arcam equip!!
Nordost are awesome interconnects/speaker cables!
I'm familiar with all the names of your toys.
I have a Loewe (pronounced loo-VAH) Aventos 30" CRT 16:9 HDTV, an Ayre Acoustics DX-7e DVD transport, A Pioneer Elite VSX52TX home theater receiver, a pair of Acoustic Energy Aegis 1 bookshelf speakers, a Nordost MoonGlow digital audio cable (XLR to RCA), a WireWorld StarLight 5 RGB video cable (from the Ayre to the Loewe).
Someday I want ALL Ayre components and ALL Thiel speakers.

Jodi

The Revel F52's are in my opinion one of the finest speakers under $ 10K, superior to the Paradigm Signature, the Genelec's, and the Monitor Audio Gold's. Yes, Arcam products are designed and targeted at the Audiophile, even their AVR-350 7.1 Receiver. The CD-36 is truly amazing, better than any outboard DAC I've experienced. Audio Excellence has been in business for 14 years providing custom Home Theaters, custom whole house A/V products, custom lighting, and so on. We are just now developing a website and should be up and running in October or November. Thanks for your compliments. Nice to know some people here enjoy and appreciate the Audio side of home entertainment, like yourself. CEDIA on Thursday !!!

Just a note - this TV is LCoS or Sony's version of it (SXRD) - it is not LCD. Just an FYI on that.

I'll be at CEDIA as well - Can hardly wait. My first visit in about half a dozen years!

LCOS SXRD rocks. I think it's the best new display tech out there myself.

I'll be watching close from you guys for posts and hopefully, pics!

I have to say when I purchase my own home in another couple of years i'll most likley be going front projection of some sort. Just a better performance and better atmosphere plus you can have room for some nice big speakers. I'm thinking focal nova utopias that should work well with a nice meridian controller and amps.
