What's you dream system?
 
I get asked this alot as everyone knows I'm sort of pathologically into this hobby... So here are some of mine......

My first and foremost a reference HT rig:

Meridian 861/800
Mark Levinson ML 436 (five)
Revel Ultima Salon/Voice/Studio (studio for surrounds) (waiting on there new sub)
EMM Labs CDSD SE/DAC6eSE (for SACD playback)
Toshiba HD XA2
Sony BDP-S1
Runco Projector
Runco XP-65 DHD 1080p plasma for daytime viewing
All wired in Transparent Opus IC and speaker wire
All run on separate dedicated lines with an isolated star ground, only wish this met code where I currently live!


OK, that one is nice, but I also would like a little office system.... That would go to Chord, the makers of the coolest looking components I've ever seen and some amazing sound too. For the office system, I'd want the full Choral rig;

Blu transport
DAC 64
Prima preamp
two of the Mezzo 140's, bridged for mono operation
The Aspire stand of course! All in brushed aluminum.
Speakers; Tetra 305's

I have a two channel rig I'd put together too, but until I actually get my retirement (win the lottery) I won't see it.

If cost was no object, what would you do??

I hear you on the Boulder stuff!

It is super high priced, but sounds great! I had never seen the Gryphon Posiedon's before, and the Golman SACD player's a nice touch!

Yes I do have to agree with you, those really large ones in the first set of photos is pretty darn ugly, but I wonder how they sound? Anyone investing that much money one a stereo setup had to of bought something that at least sound good. I wonder how much that whole setup cost?

Yes, those Avant Garde Trio's are definitely way cool.
