This crusade that is enveloping my life began in December with a simple upgrade to a digital receiver, dvd player and sub for a mesely $1400. It is now evolved into replacing the subs with dual svs subs, replacing the DVD player with a DVD Audio player and thinking about a sacd player. My mains are HP tower speakers, a very nice speaker but now I am looking at Paradigm, Thiel, Klipsch, and Martin Logan. I used to think $1000 for a amplifier, thats crazy, now its like how good would my two channel music sound with new speakers and a kick but amp. The Yamaha receiver three months ago seemed very nice, now I just keep thinking Pre Pro. It seemed like this would be fun to get into HT but it is turning into building myself a concert hall. My budget keeps getting increased while my wife keeps getting incensed. Is there a end in sight, has anyone reached hi-fi Nirvana.
