    And the Maggie's too, I've been wow'ed by Martin Login's before, and Magnapan has been in business far longer. I'd love to hear a pair in my system, too bad I can't rent a pair for a month?

    Personally I would be lost without my Squeezebox Touch for both internet radio and Spotify. Amps and speakers come and go but my SBT is a constant.

    I like everything really. From the britpop bands like UB40 right back to classic rock, like Wings. They're only the band the Beatles could have been.

    Denon DL-103 is pure magic. However, I feel that it only reaches its full potential if used with a quality Step-up transformer (SUT).

    I would recommend using vintage Maggies (I'm using crusty old IMP-I). Those are old school barnyard door speakers, but their tone in unsurpassed. New Maggies deliver more of a 'new school' hi fi sound, which is not big on tone (more focused on imaging, soundstage, ultra high details). To me, real magic happens when you get a visceral attack, which makes you feel like you're attending a real performance. Both Denon DL-103 and Maggies IMP-I are 100% forced of that visceral delivery, which is something you can rarely hear form most other hi fi systems.
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    Alex.

    Another old favourite, is the Roksan Kandy amp. Any generation of the Kandy is good. They're all well built, and play music....Plenty power too!
