I think that I will hold off for a while. Personally, I can find little to complain about with my sound reproduction. Partly because of the fact that I found a window of opportunity to do so (my wife bought my arguments) I've been in upgrade mode for the past few months. Once these urges pass, save and except for sidelong glances at Vienna Acoustic stuff, I will do as JohnK says and enjoy the music and not the gear.

IMO Vienna Acoustic speakers would be a downgrade to what you currently have.

Yes, in all but appearance, depending on your taste in speaker design.

Welcome. JohnK should have introduced himself and his idiosyncratic but strongly held opinions - such as all solid state amps sound the same, all CD players sound the same, and I believe (correct me if I'm wrong, John) all DVD players sound the same, all audio cables of sufficient gauge sound the same. Is that fair?


You do realize that when someone holds antithetical views just as firmly, they too are, as you say, idiosyncratic.... You just criticized yourself.

Also, JohnK isn't pompous....

When I think about it, until i recently got restless, I had enjoyed ten years of music with my previous system . Right now, I'm listening to Keith Jarrett play his La Scala concert. It's hard to believe that it can get better than this. Listening to the music, I'm right in the concert hall.

Great to hear that you're loving what you are hearing, Pat. I, too, get a taste of audio bliss when I listen to my M80's. They soothe the soul.

Peace
