Pat: Just to save you time, the guys here who can offer the most help (not me!) will likely need more info about what you're already using, where you hope to get, size of your listening space, etc.

There are so many knowledgeable people here happy to share their experience. It's worth checking in regularly for answers to your ?'s.

Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.
