@d2girls +1.  A quote from Honky Tonk Sue "If he has to brag he's going to sag".  Circa 1978-9 a Phoenix AZ free press publication.  And that is what on board memory is about.

Check out Gene Krupa in the movie Ball of Fire.  He plays a solo on a matchbox with two matchsticks.  It was after the director called cut-but the camera man had kept filming.  Unbelievable dynamics on an impromptu solo during a  movie break.  Res... 
Imported audio are you getting the same level of performance vs domestic priced equip?
I use ebay for generally speaking bargain prices.  I like Meridian pre/processors and American Amps and speakers.  That being said, I am currently very happy with a Parasound C2, made in Finland.  We all get to pick and choose which components we ...

Recordings by Elton John, Nirvana and Thousands More Lost in Fire

Magnepan for Background Listening

You might consider a DBX 223xl.  Available fairly cheap.  Balanced input and outputs, master gain control, and individual gain control over hi/lo.  I use two of them as three way xovers.  Very flexible, all pots are stepped.  You can change the fr...
