    Hello...

    Just trying to get some ideas on what you floks are using for a 2nd system.

    Here's mine:

    Sony KV-32XBR

    Sony 13" Trinitron

    Sony STR-DA555ES (use remote for system)

    Pioneer DV-525 DVD

    Pioneer CLD-900 CD/LD (First combo player, still mint).

    Sony Hi-Fi VCR

    Toshiba 6-Head VCR

    Sony 4-Way SS-TL5 Spks (Solid Tiger Oak)

    Yamaha NC-AC300 (Centre/Rears)

    Audiosource SW-15 (Insulated)

    Comments: This system is in my bedroom. It sounds very good for the size of the room. I was one of them that was against receiver's (I have a Lexicon in my main system) being anywhere near as good as a pre-pro. But my STR-555ES does it's job very well. Great LFE!!

    I have my main stereo system and home-theater system in one room, and a second stereo system in another room. My second stereo system:

    * NAD C 350 stereo integrated amp

    * Energy e:XL 25 floorstanding speakers (rosewood finish)

    * Sony SCD-C333ES SACD/CD changer

    * Sony SCD-CE775 SACD/CD changer

    * Pioneer Elite PD-65 single-disc CD player

    * Sony CDP-XA5ES single-disc CD player (European model; champagne chassis)

    * Sony CDP-X3000ES single-disc CD player (Japanese model; champagne chassis)

    * Harman/Kardon CDR 30 dual-tray CD recorder

    * Sony MDS-JB930 minidisc player/recorder

    * Sony MXD-D3 CD player/minidisc player/recorder

    * Pioneer CT-WM77R 6 + 1 cassette tape changer

    I am currently using cheap Monster XP speaker wire with Radio Shack banana plugs, but I will be upgrading to BetterCables Premium speaker cables with Vampire banana plug terminations soon. As for interconnects, I am using Monster Interlink 400mkIIs all-around, but I will likely upgrade interconnects for some key components (e.g., the 'C333ES, 'CE775, and PD-65) eventually.

    Bedroom system (99% music, occasional movie):

    Marantz SR-4000

    Panasonic DVD-A300U (1st gen, still going!!)

    Panasonic CT24SX11 (all that would fit in the armoire)

    Paradigm Titans - 1 pair

    Ancient Sony hifi VCR that really sees zero duty, and I'm not sure why it is still plugged in.

    will soon be upgrading the speakers, most likely Axiom M3Tis, Mini Monitors or GR Research (once demoed) Looks like I may do a head to head on those 3 in the near future.

    Onkyo 696

    The Polk speakers have got to go. Thinking of replacing them with Mordaunt Short 902s.

    Click on the little house for a description (no pics) of my "second" home theater system. In my office I have a stereo only system with the following:
    Denon DP7F turntable with brand new Audio Technica AT311EP cartridge [​IMG]
    Harman/Kardon HK3270 stereo receiver
    Pioneer CLD-M401 LD player/5 CD Changer
    Sony MDS-JB920 MiniDisc Deck (also serves as a DAC for CD/LD player)
    Sony RX606ES Casette Deck
    Mirage 290iS bookshelf speakers
    Passac Unity Eight rack mount 8 channel mixer (for MIDI instruments and PC audio)
    (it sounds really fantastic. I love the Mirage speakers and H/K receiver.)
    The fourth system (yes I know I'm crazy) consists of:
    Philips FR-930 receiver (Prologic serving as Stereo)
    Sony MDS-JE320
    Pioneer PDF-606 25 disc CD changer
    Cheapo Aiwa Mini-System speakers
    The only other system that I use for anything approaching "serious" listening is the office system. As a matter of fact I'm spinning my ABC records LP copy of Steely Dan's "Aja" as I type this.
    Back in the day I would have moved this to "polls" but I'm not sure what's happened to that area. [​IMG]

    Sorry GregE, I'm keeping my CD-1. Kinda stinks they are going out of production, eh? I've had so many side-projects, I haven't even got to tube-rolling it!
