Re: Which new piece of equipment has exceeded your expectations?

I use these practically everyday. I would have to say my Ultimate Ears UE-11. Very non fatiguing either listening to music, talk radio, MLB. I use them with success with my headphone amp or without directly from an iPod or a MacBook.

I love my Ascend Sierra-1's! They make me want to listen to more music and watch less tv. That's a really good thing. Classical, progressive, alternative, jazz, and pop all sound good. Movies sound more realistic. Voices and explosions and breaking glass all sound very authentic. They look good too.

I would have to say my 110" DIY DW screen. For a total of $160 I didn't expect the results.

Re: Which new piece of equipment has exceeded your expectations?

Picked up an Emotiva XPA-5 and am using it to amp my recently purchased Onkyo receiver (809). This did not seem like a very cost-effective move as my listening room is not very large, and the Onkyo does a reasonably good job.
All I can say is the improvement in dynamics, soundstage and clarity are not my imagination. Of course the source material has to be good to appreciate it, but even the broadcast of 'Sing Off' was more enjoyable. The sound overall is more 'effortless'.

Samsung PN51F8500, Emotiva UMC-200, Emotiva XPA5, Dali Ikon6, Vokal 2 center, OnWalls, Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EX, Oppo Digital BDP-103, Furman Elite 15PF power conditioner

My Panasonic Vierra plasma. After a few weeks back and forth with my wife and I looking at various TV's, from LCD to plasma, we decided to go with the GT30 and have been very happy since. Colours and definition are great. So is the overall look of the tv and the way it fits in the living room.

I would have to say upgrading to the Onkyo tx-nr809. I had a Yamaha before and the added power has really brought my Klipsch reference speakers to life.

The new Pioneer Elite with the 9 band EQ on each speaker. A tweakers delight. Id put my Vegas up against any speaker system for sound clarity and volume, after all, they are loud speakers and they sound fantastic!!

Which Harmony remote is held in the highest regard among the home theater crowd? I've got about 5 now and would like just one that can do everything glitch free.
