    Default What is your most treasured component?

    We're all here for our ML speakers, but some of us must have other components that mean more to us or our system. What is your most treasured component? Is it your MLs or something else?

    As much as I love the Logans, My most treasured componet is the music itself.

    I could live without the Logans if I had to.Thank God I don't have to.

    But I could not live without the music, no matter how good or bad the sound is.

    Other - My entire system - the infamous synergy. Loss of any of the parts affects the whole.

    Has to be the 'Logans, as they are what reproduce the sound.

    Heck, I designed the room around them, of course they are the most treasured ;-)

    But right after the 'Logans, it has to be the Meridian processor.

    For me it's the Logans, as the CLS II is very hard to find over here in Europe, even if I paid much more for other components in my setup - I interpret your "treasured" term as indicating something different than raw cost or market value.

    Martin & Logan are worth more than the rest of the system combined!
