Best 1,000 complete system for girlfriend ideas
There is a lot of good advice. Teac and Denon both have very nice systems (mini/compact) for under $1000 that sound good. Take a hard look. The girl friend factor is probably worse than the wife factor. Do not play around with used electronics. Us... 
Best used amp for around 500
You have a lot of great recommendations. Sonograph SA 250, Dynaco St 70 and Complete would be my choices. Interesting mix that would depend on the rest of the system. Integrateds have come a long way and there is more you can do with them. Go afte... 
Seeking feedback on Swan, Paradigm and Triangle
No problem. This is what it is all about. Having fun and sending some jabs and challenges. I'm tempted to grab up a pair of Swans just for the reason you said -- affordable and good. But I want to save a few dollars to do something with my CD. I a... 
Best Speaker cables on the cheap?
Get the basic Nordost flat copper wires and run them in a shot gun or biwire configuration. Buy the bare wire and take an hour and terminate them yourself. Cheap and nice sounding. 
Shearwater efficiency?
The Complete with any Meadowlark is a nice combination. What is your room like? Give some thought to the room and size of speaker. Also call Meadowlark and speak with Pat or someone there. Let them help you and they will. Good luck.

Will and Aball,Many thanks for the input. The Studio 60's are on my list, so I will also listen to the 100's. My room is small 12x16, so I need to take this into consideration. The short list also includes Meadowlark and Joseph. I start the final ... 
Speakers for Conrad-Johnson MV-60
Actually, I didn't buy the amp first. I upgrade an old (15 year) amp. I used to be in the industry and had 5 pairs of speakers floating around, so I thought that one pair would work. But after 20 years the technology is so different and the fact t...

Which Swans? I remember the original product from 15+ years ago and know nothing of the new ones. How do you think they would sound with a CJ MV-60? 
Speakers for Conrad-Johnson MV-60
Thanks for clarifying. I will see if I can find a dealer nearby. 
Speakers for Conrad-Johnson MV-60
Thanks for the input. At first I thought CJ was just as you described and so I stayed away. But the MV-60 is very different. Maybe its the amp/preamp combo. Which Cabasse speakers did you listen to?
