IMHO, 2500 looks nice but not pretty. He is a bold muscle guy, and he intimidates me!! (call me chicken)
 
How did the seller pack this, a wood case or just double box?
 
If you want to move your Marantz separate (540 & 3800?), please let me know!!
 
Congrats!

And now the thread needs Sansui G-33000 or G-22000 and Technics SA-1000!!

The seller did an amazing pack job.  He wrapped the receiver in bubble wrap, then a layer of cardboard wrapped and taped around it, then three sheets of 1" foam sheeting on all sides in a cardboard box.

Thanks Rob.  I ordered a black walnut cabinet from mcintoshcabinets.com today.  Thanks for the recommendation.
 
Will post more pictures when the cabinet comes in.

i finally hooked up my WA2 as a pre amp to the power in on the SX950.
freaking impressive.
more detail, a sense of staging, warmth, and just overall this awesome musicality that makes me smile.  vocals and guitars are lush and rich.

Sounds like an excellent rig.
 
I'm running a headroom ultra desktop amp  as a pre amp and dac to my marantz 2285B. My B&W bookshelf speakers sound amazing with this set up.

Well the path to Audio nirvana is never easy.
 
My replacement lamps arrived and I unscrewed the metal bar holding them in place - 2 screws - 20 minutes later . . .
 

 
After assembly and test I found out that I had forgotten the meter lamp . . . .
