My Birthday is in June and as an early B-Day present compliments of my mom (big hug) I got my Parasound Halo P3! I was surfing ebay tonight and just out of curiosity I did a search for "Parasound Halo P3" and there she be... It's 2 weeks old and was purchased for full retail $800.00 this means that it will be backed by Parasound (Warranty is transferable) and I got it for $550.00 and $22.00 Shipping. Mint, Boxed, Manuals, Remote etc.. I get the deals! Now all I need is my Delphi Sky Fi XM Tuner, my new audio rack (DIY) and a good CD Transport and that's it.. I will be DONE! (for a while) the only other thing I need is to start working on my DIY speakers as soon as I get the information from the creator of them. What a journey this has been and will undoubtedly continue to be. I started off with a Phillips Bookshelf system and now I have: 1 Parasound Halo P3 PreAmp 2 Antique Sound Labs Wave AV20-DT 20Watt Class A Tube Monoblocks 1 Onkyo TX-DS787 THX Select 7.1 Receiver 100Wattx6 1 Onkyo M-282 2 Channel W.R.A.T Power Amp 110Wattx2 1 Bob Carver Sunfire TDC Sub Plate Amp (500Watt) 1 Behringer Tube Ultra-Q Linestage Parametric Tube EQ 1 Panasonic CV51 5 Disk Interlaced DVD,CD,MP3 Changer 1 Technics SLBD22-K Turntable 1 Audio Technica AT331-LP Cartridge 1 RCA 61" HomeTheater Series NTSC RPTV (HDTV Plasma in a few years) 1 Phillips Pronto Pro Full X-10 Control Etc.. I think I have done well so far.. My movie setup has always been nothing short of fantastic (The Onkyo excells at movies and was always "okay" at music.)With the ASL's running off the Halo I am certain my music will now be on part with the movies. I certainly need a reference quality cd player and in time that is something else I will obtain but I need to think about what features I need and want and I want an all in one solution, no external DAC's. I have been looking at certain CDP's I like the AH! Njoe Tjoeb 4000 (Reworked Marantz, Burr-Brown DAC's, Tube Output stage or something like the Sonic Frontiers Reference or Shanling.. I dunno but whatever I go with I will put my price cap around a grand (used or new). All I know is that I NEED to get my new rack built badly. I am so out of room for components you don't even want to know where I have my ASL Mono's sitting.. You would bean me with something large and heavy!
