I'm always music first, the system's a means to an end. Just like using my phone and 30 quid in-earbuds or in the car, I get equal enjoyment and odd looks in the car .
Just listening to some Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong on the system and it sounds incredible, literally they're both sat in front of me. Astonishing tbh.
NAD 10, Q Acoustics 3050i and a nice Project TT with RIIA built in and I'll still be able to enjoy Ella and Louis. Plus tie in my TV with the NAD for a simple 2.1. Not only will it be simpler, free up space and cash and I can dial the sound in via the DIrac live voodoo thing.
Will it sound worse ofc it will. After a month I'll not give a damn.
Maybe ill keep it all.
Sorry for the thread derail
