    I just made this pic and I thought I'd see what you guys thought. Its my current setup and I think it sounds great. The main music/dvd source is a Samsung DVD-M301 player that I have never had any problems with. There was an issue with the DTS track of Moulin Rouge, but it seems that was fairly common. Everything is hooked up via monster cable that a friend gave to me. [​IMG] Optical from DVD to receiver. My TV is crap, its the next thing to buy.
    Anyway, I bother everyone to ask. Is this system mid-fi or Low-fi?
    here is the pic.
    Let me know,
    Jon

    I'd consider it upper low-fi. Mid-fi, to me, is stuff like Rotel, mid level B&W, etc.

    Jon,
    Doesn't amtter where it falls. As long as YOU like it thats all that counts.
    Seems like a solid system and I bet it gives great sound. It'll do till the upgrade bug bites !
    Enjoy[​IMG]

    My opinion on the whole Low-Fi,Mid-Fi,Hi-Fi classification
    has absolutely nothing to do with dollars spent.
    Audiophiles who contribute quality with dollars are sadly
    mistaken and IMHO they can check thier elitist snob attitude
    at the door. There are many giant killers out there
    folks, and these giant killers do not always have a giant
    price tag associated with them.
    I beleive that a carefully chosen and correctly set up system
    can yeild better results than just looking in your (insert
    expensive store name here) and just buying what ever cost
    the most.
    I am not rating anyone's system. If you love the way it sounds
    then it is HI FI to you. End of story!
