Considering the high quality level of your system, the Placette Passive will absolutely stun you. If you really want to hear what your system sounds like, you must give it a try. Since I put the Placette into my system (heavily modified Dan Wright 9000ES, Classe CA-300, Harmonic Tech, Spendor SP1/2s, Velodyne ULD-15 IIs), I find myself unable to sample various tracks on multiple CDs. Once I put on a disc, I'm so amazed at the sound of each cut, I end up listening to the entire CD. I attribute much of this to the fact that the Placette actually lets me hear the 9000ES, which, after Dan's work, is a super source for both redbook and SACDs. The Placette is highly recommended, as are the mods performed by Dan Wright. Give yourself some very happy holidays ;-).
