I have been researching so long and hard lately from Speakers to Sources to Peramps and Amplifiers and of course Cables... Anyway I was just wondering what folks here would replace if money was no object. What one component would you replace? As for me I would acquire a high quality source. Probably the Zanden three piece set for $43,000.00.

Zanden 2000 & 5000 DAC's are very cool... ;)

:confused: But agian, what component would you acquire?
Just one now... :)

As this is the ML club. . .

I'll pick the VPI HR-X w/JMW 12.6 arm and the Dynavector Te Kaitora Rua cartridge.

For the cd playback portion of my system, I remain highly interested in what differences a transport would make. If dollars and sense (pun intended) need not be considered, I would like to try the 47 Labs PiTracer in my system.

Yup... I looked at his room again and it is gorgeous!

How can anyone deny this room for their ML speakers??



If I could have 1 thing, the room would be it, period.

From the looks of the acoustics of the room and the rave reviews. I would say the room is so good it could even make Bose sound good, and that is an accomplishment.

Let's see, what one component would I really want if there were no cost constraints...

A Martin Logan Statement E2x of course!

More better yet would a 5ch version of the Statement, that would trully be the $250K version of the cost no object component people on this board would want. :cool:

I'm sure for a quarter-mil, the factory would gladly ship a 5ch Statement to anyone with the right room to house it.

For a quarter mil they'd ship it to any room, anywhere!

Meridian 808i...

David and DrJRapp,

I like the Meridian 808i, as well. That is, if I ever find the right deal, when I have at least $8,000 saved. I like the fact that Meridian 808i has a preamp veriable level control and some of the most awesome DAC's and transporter available... :D

Ok I've made my decision. It wasn't easy but I think the Spectral DMA-360 monoblocks would be the one item I would add if $ were no option.

I feel that a VERY good amp should last me a lifetime, and thus would be a good investment ;)

WOW! Unreal.

Is that a screen coming down from the ceiling in the very front? If not, the room only lacks three things-- a quality large screen between those speakers, and two Sony G-90 CRT projectors mounted on the ceiling. :eek:

Dream On!
