Sonnie,

Well this set up was built up over several years, but it can't begin to compare in scope or quality to what you have. I am the one to be impressed!

In the audiophile world my equipment would be considered 2nd or 3rd rate, but I enjoy it immensely. I do have some future upgrades in mind, but since I don't have golden ears (fortunate for my wallet) I can't go too far upscale before I arrive at the point of diminishing returns.

I am sort of a fringe HT guy with my main interest in audio. Despite that I think HT Shack is by far the best place I have found for me to hang out. I have yet to do anything serious in the video area so I know I can learn a whole lot from everyone. Late this year or early next year I will be taking the plunge and get something like a Panny AE900 or whatever you guys recommend.

Thanks

Shoot man... lots of folks would be tickled to have your setup.

There's a sweet deal going on for a Panny AE900 right now... I think I posted it in the Special Deals forum. Only through May though.


We might need to get a 2 channel audio section going soon. We probably need it. If we can get enough folks interested we might just start it up. Maybe I'll post a poll on that in the Suggestions forum.
