Thank you. I know there are more expensive systems out there but for me better is a relative term. Audio has a law of diminishing return. The better your systems gets, the more money it takes to get noticeable improvement. So, yes there are better systems out there but for 10x or 100x the money, it isn't worth it to me. Every person must decide for themselves how good is good enough. Remember the only person who has to like your system is you. That and serenity comes not from what you have but knowing what you can live without.

Now go listen to some music, because that is what it's all about.
Excellent post!!!! I currently have all that I want. It's not much to many people but as I was listening to music last night- I was quickly convinced that I don't need to get anything else. (However my multi-channel system doubles as my 2 channel system). I'd more than likely have more fun and gratification out of going the DIY route than just accumulating audio gear. Especially if I can fix it myself - (that's why I went the HTPC route - never have to worry about buying another prepro or receiver again).

I had a pair of Klipschorns myself many years ago. That brought back memories.

Here is an ultimate dream system that belongs to one of my friends. I'm talking over a million dollars in this room.
Simply on the audio gear that's pictured in that room, that'd be a top contender for my dream system. If I had a room like that to put it in which I don't (yet).

Since we're just talking about a dream system, not a dream life that'll encompass everything else, house, cars, BIG tv's etc. I'm going to have to dream a little smaller.

My source would be a top flight CD player (Burmester?), unfortunately while I own an OPPO BDP-95, I'm not familiar with higher end (read: better performing, not just higher priced) CD players. My speakers would be either Wilson Sophia V3s, Sasha I or IIs or Alexia's. Or possibly Nola Grands (for something completely different), powered by MBL amps. I don't know the first thing about cables so I can't dream too much outside of standard ones and the same goes for racks/stands.

Not having any owner's experience with any of that gear I don't know if they all would match well to bring out the best in each other but, I'm only dreaming anyway right? So it doesn't really matter.

Happy 2014 everyone. Here's to achieving dreams however big or small they may be, in audio or otherwise. Cheers!

Re: What is your dream 2 channel system?

The Oppo is no slouch. I know of one person who traded an Ayre CX-7 @ ~$3K in on an Oppo BDP-105. He says the Oppo sounds better and is more reliable.

i have a suspicion, if you acquired your dream system you'd find some suitable (commensurately high priced) cable to match the rest of those high "zoot" components.

ARC SP9 MKIII, VPI HW19, Rega RB300, Marcof PPA1, Shure, Sumiko, Ortofon cartridges: Marantz CD63SE, Yamaha DVD-S1800,, MSB Link D2A, Emotiva XDA-2, Accuphase T101 tuner, TEAC V7010, Emotiva UMC-200: Front speakers: Acoustat Spectra 22 ESL's, DBX223sx, 2 modified Dynaco MK3's, 2 12" Transmission Line Subs, Behringer DSP1124P, 2 Crown XLS-402 Rear speakers: Acoustat Model 1 ESL, Paradigm X-30, 2 Adcom GFA-545, Acoustat SPW-1 Woofer.
