Ok, Linn beating system for not much cash ... Urei 809s, and have the diaphragms replaced with Radian ones and all internal connections soldered. These use 12" JBL dual concentrics and to my mind handsomely beat 12" Tannoys. Harmon Kardon PA 2400 x 2, monoblocked. Dave Slagle, or Alegri, or Music First Audio Pre. Denon or Yamaha hi end dvd/ multi disc player, out via a reclocker eg Wyred4Sound to a good external Dac. Not Sony if you want to play home burned discs. Turntable Sir? Technics or a PTPd Lenco, cartridge to suit budget.
