Yep, that's the one. 2.5 years later and it's still got an image quality that can't easily be beat in the consumer market at any price, despite great strides in LCD, DLP, and DILA technologies (I currently like DILA the best of those 3).

The problem is that its physical size & magnetic sensitivites are kinda cramping the 2ch there. Moving it around is a bear. I'd like to get a nice 42" plasma (I like the Pioneer) to improve my placement options, but for image quality that would be a lateral move at best. It would be a shame to relegate such a great CRT to another room. Not to mention another $1600 that will depreciate fast and could have gone towards more value-stable audio gear....

B&W Matrix 3SE Speakers
Harman/Kardon HK3480 Stereo Reciever
Harman/Kardon DVD27 DVD/CD Player

Hopefully after college or maybe this summer I will get a proper preamp/amp setup for them. However they also serve as my HT speakers so i need something that does video too.
I scored the speakers for $150 on craigslist from some old guy out in the middle of nowhere

Jeez... some people have really nice stuff! I have Yamaha YSTM7 satellites, and a crappy, humming, powered-subwoofer (it hums even when no signal cables are plugged into it). I didn't buy any of it; it was a hand-me-down!

These are my "home" speakers, connected to my laptop. =( Anyone want to start a please-save-an-audiophile fund to rescue people in my position? Maybe then I could have money for such things.

*sigh*

Cool lotsa B&Ws here. I still vividly remember in '86 walking into a local hi-end sound store here (same shop as 2 different uncles had previously purchased complete McIntosh systems worth over $25k each) with a wad of cash in my pocket when I bought my stereo rig:

Nakamichi TA-4A - $1500
Nakamichi CR-4A - $995
B&W Digital Monitor DM1800 - $1500
B&W stands - $250
Monster M1 with Exterminators and expanding bananas - $300
Monster Interlink 400 - $80

It was quite a feeling peeling those crisp brand new $100 bills off and laying them on the counter. I also remember what the sales guy said when I asked him about how long this equipment should last or be still good, and he replied "It's good enough to get off the bus with" And he was right ... It still sounds 'magical'

I had a pioneer elite vsx-**txi. They are truly stupendous for the money. I also had the Elite 47ai Universal but traded it in for the Esoteric.

Be careful that the taxi cabs don't run over your speakers!
