Congrats Figge........I did a huge upgrade (new from scratch) 4-5 years ago and spent that much I'm still feeling it LOL........sometimes I think what I could do with that money now haha. But it should hopefully last me decades.

But yes - I really enjoy shopping around and carrying around my little six pack of CDs for testing across a variety of music I like. I find most systems in the mid-high end can handle most music up to the 70's but not many I tried could handle the huge production of much of the music we like here , so I listen to things like Toto: Caught In The Balance , Harem: Saviours Never Cry , Dream Theater: Metropolis/ Another Day and for some balance Steve Stevens: Flamenco A Go Go.

There was only one combo that I looked at that produced a good result in the end.

I don't need a sub woofer for most of my music but that'll be a future purchase for sure as it's nice to have some control (no EQ otherwise)

The other upgrade I've been working on (yes......I'm slow) is that I've recently digitized my collection in lossless and about 6 months ago I bought myself a Sonos so in theory I can play my whole collection lossless through my high end system at the touch of an iPad without bothering with CDs.

Trouble is I've had it sitting there for 6 months as I'm just too time poor to work on it. Most of my listening is done at the PC lol.

Once I get the Sonos attached I'm likely to lose quite a bit of sound quality so will probably have to spend $2k on a really good DAC.....never ends. I did look at the Oyster stuff - very impressive but couldn't justify the expense when I think I can get most of the effect with a Sonos and DAC.........and you can then use your iPad like a jukebox (queuing etc....) for the whole collection.

All the best
