thanks for the replies. I've been without any type of system for well over a decade. The last system I had was a pair of Magnepan 1.6 speakers with Conrad Johnson components. It sounded pretty good at a moderate levels but I did not have enough power. I hope the Song 3A sounds similar or better with some added punch.
@ jd3, can you tell me about the March p502 sound characteristics?
@phil A, how does the Lumin sound with your system? I'm hearing a lot of good things about Lumin products?
