Re: What's you dream system?
A friend of mine had the 136 pre/pro, his was really glitchy, hopefully they resolved that issue. I am still trying to figure out how you are running 9 speakers with 8 channels of amplification but the rest is pretty sweet. I would swap out the Meridian 861 for the Mc 136 but that is my choice!
As for the projector, you just can't beat the SC-1! If I win the lottery, I'm ordering one the same day!
