You guys were indeed very good at getting me to spend more money! smile Actually, I decided to upgrade my system a lot more. I purchased a Parasound Halo P5 preamp and Halo A21 amp this weekend, with Timber connects. The preamp is cool because it has a bypass that allows me to use my old 5.1 Pioneer Elite receiver for movies, but when listening to music the Pioneer is off and I'm only on the components. I told the salesperson I wanted a WOW experience if I spent the money, and I certainly got that. Even my wife said the difference in sound was amazing. Can't wait to here them with the Axiom stuff arriving this week. WAY over budget, but what the heck!

I also purchased an Audioengine B1 Bluetooth DAC, which is supposed to allow 24-bit streaming to the system. I'm using Total Audio, and the sound is amazing!

I know the Parasound aren't the high-end, but for me they sound great. Baby steps, right?

Sorry, meant to say that I'm sending Tidal Audio from my phone to the B1 and getting amazing sound. The phone uses AptX, so the stream is CD quality.
