Top 3 songs to evaluate a system
As many have said it’s hard to pick just (3), I have many -  but I do have my #1. A great owner/dealer introduced me to his # 1 (5) years ago and I agree.The imaging/ soundstage/ separate distinct instruments, with Wynton Marsalis, then with Diann... 
Casters to replace spikes
How about custom stands on casters by Sound Anchors? I loved them with my B&W N802’s years ago.And not only Wilson but now B&W use castors! The ease of use between 2ch and HT is a big advantage.Best of luck!

Forgot to mention, Matthew is a Perlisten dealer, but they are not cheap. He will have a demo pair very soon.

I thank everyone again. The cabinetmakers son in me still loves those Sonus Fabre Tradition cabinets in the red stain finish.Most of you know have forgotten more than I know on 2ch. I appreciate 2 ch, but my room is a task. So, the need for incred...

nseymour, I think k your telling me for dynamics, movies etc. the Focals are great. However for softer music the SF’s are better. While we do watch movies, our music choice would be female vocalists like Diana Krall, acoustic rock like The Eagles,...

Thank you all. I’ve decided on Focal Kanta 3’s which are in budget and front ported. Money left over to consider room treatments, possible 2ch integrated and 1-2 subs. 
Need help selecting a streamer for a beginner.
+1 for Innuous and you can easily and very fast rip any cd’s you have.

Will be reading up on all suggestions later today, thank you all!Question: would the $14k Lyngdorf Pre-pro with their Room Correction, now being used by McIntosh, compensate for speakers being too close to the wall? If that technology works I have...

Wow! That Dutch and Dutch 8C looks interesting but no center ch is available. 2 dealers in Miami so about a 5 hr drive to go hear them. 
New Speakers $10K -$20K
Thanks again to everyone!I know of the Larsens, very intriguing speakers. And yes they are purposely placed against the back wall. They sell a surround/center that is not a dedicated center ch. $15K for the 9’s about $2k for the dual purpose speak...
