Wilson Alexandria 2 speakers, Halcro DM58 monoblocks, Halcro DM10 pre, Linn Sondek LP12 with Lingo power supply, Linn Unidisk 1.1, AudioQuest Kilimanjaro speaker cable, and AudioQuest Cheetah interconnects. So that would be my 2 channel system I would have to give more thought to my home theater. I have actually heard this system with the Wilson Maxx 2's instead of the X2's. It was magnificent. The X2's cost is about 3 times that of the Maxx 2's.
Actually I listen to live music often That's why I would choose the above system. Closest thing I have ever heard to the real thing. It's the kind of system I would buy only if I won the powerball for 500 million. And you know what they say, "you have to play to win".
