RE: From the Beginning
OK. Great. That is just as I hoped. I like the idea of buying a modern system and then adding sources as I am able.

By the way, I am on my way to D.C. next week and I have already scoped out a Linn dealer with a showroom. Will have my first Linn Listening session since the Sara was a new speaker.

Current System -
Broken Rotel RA-840BX4 Integrated Amp, Norman Laboratory Model 7 Speakers with dry-rotted foam surround, Wharfedale Coleridge speakers with smashed tweeter.

Excellent. Two things if you don't know the dealer:
1. Make sure you listen with Space Optimisation both OFF and ON. You never know - SO may not be set up right and sometimes can potentially make a system sound worse than with it off entirely.
And 2. Don't be tempted to listen to anything with Exakt, or the Klimax range... Just in case you go away with mad ideas in your head....Wink
