Hi Everyone,

I have been lurking on this site for about six months now and I think it is high time I registered and took part in some of these discussions. I have been very impressed with the quality of discourse on this forum and am excited to take part and add my 2 cents worth. A little about me. . . I have been a music lover all of my life. I have been a hi fi audio lover ever since I first heard a pair of Klipschhorns about 24 years ago. And I have been a Martin Logan lover since I first heard a pair of Prodigies (pushed by Krell and playing Holly Cole's "Train Song.")
My current system consists of a pair of Ascents, bi-amped with a Conrad Johnson Premier 140 stereo tube amp driving the panels and Outlaw Audio 2200 monoblocs driving the woofers, paired with a CJ Premier 17 LS-2 Preamp and Marantz SA-11S1 CD Player, and a descent sub. I hope to upgrade to Summits in the not too distant future. Thanks to everyone for such a great forum. Looking forward to many happy posts. :)

Robin, Jeff & Roberto,

Thanks for the welcome. I do love the sound of my Ascents driven through the CJ -- the detail and warmth is intoxicating. Jeff, I imagine the solid state CJ is also excellent. Robin, I am very happy with my setup right now -- it's wonderful. But I am about to get started building a new house and I have a home theater planned in. At that time I will upgrade to Summits, and do 5.1 channel and stereo.

Rich,
The CJ SS amp is very tube-like in sound and although I have not heard the Plinius I am sure they may sound simlar. If I my choice, I would get a tube amp with the Summits.

I would demo as many as you can and decide which "sound" you like best.

Good Luck

Jeff :cool:
