Hey all, been a LONG time since my last visit as I finally put together a 2ch system I was perfectly content with, within the bounds of my family's cost of living.
Then, along came my daughter, so there's been zero need or even want to upgrade things.
The 2ch system consists primarily of a PS Audio Stella Gain Cell DAC/Pre, Stella S300 power amplifier and Monitor Audio Silver 8 floorstanders.
All sources are connected to the DAC/Pre - Fetch box/TV, blu-ray, SBT, and all audio is output through the speakers. The TV's volume is "fixed" and set as "external sound system".
