Talking Re: Price vs. Performance

It is indeed interesting to see how each and every one of us views what
matters the most to us in our listening environments.Take me,my prioroty is
to shut the lights off after the kids and wife are asleep and just unwind to
the tunes I enjoy.The realism of "being there" is special to me.My search for
now has led me to the ID's,but there are many other excellent manufacturers
out there.
In my profession of professionly installing musical surround
as I like to call it,I have encountered many pretenders and many exceptional
transducers.Indeed,many has been the time I've come home from work and
longingly thought of those new 20-40k speakers I just installed with kilobuck
electronics.But,when I start up my modest system,H-K AVR325w Signature
PA2100 stereo amp,OnkyoDX7555 cd player,Source TechnologyHRS,Marantz
DV4300dvd player,Ixos cables,and a Samsung HD870 upconvert dvdplayer I
realize that music nirvana doesn't have to be the latest and greatest for one
to derive great pleasure from.So for you new to this great hobby of ours dont
get caught up in the manufacturing hype but use your own ears and remember what your budget can afford and if you are smart in your choices
you too can come home from work and be transported to the event you are
listening to
P.S.-DONT forget a good Power Conditioner.I use Pure AVF9A1033-12,inexspensive but does the trick-many other good units abound but be aware and Dont overpay and overbelieve.
