About two years ago I caught the HT bug. After making some initial errors about hardware and spending many times what most people would consider prudent, I have a system which is fairly good. Along the way I discovered that I enjoyed listening to music as much or more than watching HT or TV in general. I realize this is the Home Theatre Forum but I suspect that others might have a similar viewpoint. Whatever, I am asking for advice on how to improve music playback in addition to HT.

Silver Truthlink for stereo Harmonic Tech. Precision-Link for satellite inputs NBS Omega Jr. on three front speaker and a Wireworld single crystal copper to the surrounds I have heard audible defferences in wires that carry signals but am on the fence re: aftermarket PC's. I plan to relace the DVD player w/ the Samsung HD931 when it is released to see DVD in HD. I don't believe I can afford a separate dedicated 2 channel system and after hearing SACD, I think I need to allow hardware for 5.1 playback. What do you think is the path I should take from here. I admit I listen to the system sometimes and not the music.
