You heard the dali/arcam combo. You fell in love with it. Your words. Why the interest in Green mountain?

... cause this is my first serious system and I don't trust my instincts enough to make a call. The Green Mountains seem to have a lot of passionate fans on this board and are in the same price range as the Dalis. I'm also trying find a Creek 50i/Epos system to sample.
Or maybe I should trust the love thing...
I have never heard the GMA's but I have heard the Dali's. At the time, they were outside my price range and I could not afford them but if I could have, I would have bought them. The detail was great, and they had excellent imaging. Definitely not bright. I heard them through mid level NAD receiver. I spoke with the Western US Dali rep last year and of all the higher end line they sell, he has the Royals in his home. Finally, I think their veneers are beautiful and they would be gorgeous in a living room.
The Arcam should be fine. These speakers are being used in modest systems and very expensive ones. They sound great on most any amp. I've heard mine on everything from Citation to Arragon to my son's mini cd system's amp (basically a rack system) Never once heard them sound bad. Best thing is they make bad recordings sound pretty good, and they are an easy load for the amp. Not many speakers can do that for $1K. Good luck
