    I can really use some advice on this. I currently use the Morrison ELAD Pre and it sounds really great with the Pass Labs X350 and Aerial Acoustic 10T's but the system is in my bedroom and I really want a remote control for the volume as well as a sleep timer. A tuner would be nice as well.

    So my needs are.

    1. Great Sound (not bright)
    2. 2 channel (more is ok just not a "need")
    3. Remote control for volume
    4. Sleep Timer
    5. 12 Volt trigger (to trigger amp on and off)
    6. Tuner
    7. Not too expensive maybe $2,000 or less (used is an option)

    Any ideas?

    Thanx in advance.

    I don't have experience with the your equipment but I thought I'd throw out a suggestion anyway. Have you considered Classe? I read somewhere a while back that Kelly uses it in his own system. You could email Aerial directly....

    I have the CC3 and love it. I'm considering a used pair of 10T when I have my house finished.

    How big is your bedroom? Is the 10T's bass generous? I read that the 8B's deep bass makes it more placement sensitive than a less ambitious speaker.

    Have fun!

    My bedrrom is pretty big. Its an odd shape so its hard to say probably about 20 x 15 in sq ft. The bass on the 10T's is great, just be careful not to put them to close the a wall or corner. I didn't care for the sound of the 8b myself, but I love the 10T's. You might say I am a little obsessed with them. I have 3 pairs. So I would definately reccommend them [​IMG]. Good luck with your system.

    I am considering a used IR RDC 7 Pre now. I already have one in another sy stem and really like it.
