Charles, Thanks! I wanted to acknowledge that a few weeks ago on a post but my posts have (had) to get approved and I get behind.
4orreal (and James) - I have the SIT2, but love it love much wanted to to get the SIT1. Mark at Reno HiFI kinda talked me out of it. (I respect that in a dealer) Saying that Nelson has gone on record saying they do sound the same if the SIT1 is on the recommended default setting. The SIT1 does sound different when adjusting from the default, but to Mark's ears it sounded best when left alone. With all that said. I still want to "upgrade" just to make sure. I tried the Coincident line stage. It was very good, even more clear and detailed than than my Aurieges, but it really didn't bring out the magic like I expected.
I never thought 10 watts wound be enough for me. Everything in my past was above 300 besides my XA30. I dont think I even push the limits of the 10 watts. My room is 13x19. I used to think I needed to listen to music really loud to get a life like concert experience. My preference has really changed since getting my new set up. I'm more excited about music than i've ever been.
