Like you, I am very happy with the music my system produces. Would I like it to be improved? Of course I would. Do I feel that it needs improving? Nope, I feel that this is a system I could keep 'as is' forever.

Its a satisfying place to be don't you think?
James

Hi Adam,
Been swithering for for a little while about something simpler with less electronics and connectivity complications and signal path interference.
Came to the conclusion we might go for little floorstanders the ones that fit the bill just now as far as simplicity and high quality crossovers and components seem to be made by Kudos.
Our living room isn't huge but being in a semi does mean that I can now get away with enthusiastic listening during the day and not miss out too much at quieter times late at night.
The ones I'm looking at are Kudos X3. 8) :smt023

Certainly sounds like a plan Jim. I'm curious to know if you thought about adding a power amp (or if you even could) to the majik. When I put my AK2200 on my Malik DSI in made hell of a difference.
Well Keeled :smt020
