Welcome MNY! What a fantastic system. Hearing the Luxman DA-06 a few years back playing DSD5,6 - particularly vinyl rips to that format - was one of the experiences that solidly set me on the DSD path (if it can't be vinyl :)) - sure must be nice with what you have it playing through.

Yes, welcome to the haven MNYankee! Very nice system you have there all around.

I haven't had the opportunity to hear any of Pass's commercial offerings but a few years ago I built the Firstwatt F5 clone that he made public and to this day it is my favorite SS amplifier. I can only imagine how the big X250 sounds.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am looking forward to learning and hearing about other members gear. It's been a long journey and a lot of equipment to get to the system that I have now.

Marantzfan, I too am a fan of Marantz gear. I love the house sound and build quality. About a year ago a friend of mine wanted a HiFi system and I recommended and helped him pick out a modest all Marantz system and it sounds great.

Is there a setting for switching the order of post's so that the new posts are on page one instead of the last page?

Back in the 70's I had a room mate in college that had a Marantz receiver and Marantz 3 way speakers. That is what got me started in audio. I sure loved the sound of the Marantz gear but could not afford it at the time. I ended up buying a 15wpc Pioneer receiver with Altec Lansing Model 2 speakers and a JVC TT in 1976.
