Interesting situation! Do we need this....
Trust your ears and not the hype.  That said, I was on a plane once and got talking to the guy next to me.  He was the bass player for the David Nelson band.  He lived in Hawaii and a neighbor was Willie Nelson.  I don't believe it was Pete Sears ... 
Those singers you enjoy,....that don't really have a great voice?
Shane MacGowan.  Sounds like he's just swallowed draino and yet has the most tone perfect and musical delivery you've ever heard in a drinking song.  Absolutely love him.  Bartender, pour me another.   
Meridian dSP7200 questions
The important thing with the Meridian is using the digital connections and nothing in analog.  I believe the 808.2 has digital input for an external source and a source selector?  If so, that is how I would do things.  I believe all the amp and da... 
Please join this poll!!!
I use firefox and audiogon comes up first.  Interesting to note, if other browsers have different pushes.   
the beginning of home acoustics of the "D" series
I guess I'm kind of funny.  I like to see something stripped down and fully exposed.  The link is nice and they are very handsome.  Okay bottom end from a small box size.  We get tweeter and woofer sizes and frequency response and box dimensions, ... 
ATI 4000
I have had 2 of the ATI 1502's and they are fast, full ranged and I thought sounded wonderful.  I played with some B&W bookshelf speakers and then with some Magnepan 3.5's, Linn Kan's and some JBL 4312's.  I have 2 son's and both were given a ... 
Threshold FET 9 / CAS1 vs Manley Stingray
I would love to listen to what you have, bet it is awesome.  I have a Cas2 that I love.  Have listened to lots of Klipsch and love the sound.  Here's my thoughts on amps and speakers.  Different amp, same speakers, different sound.  Vice versa and... 
Help Building an Audio Room
Even if you do a great job of sound insulating the walls and ceiling, sound travels great through hvac air ducts.  Learned that one the hard way.  Good luck.  
Who is Gonna Buy A New Jeep Grand Wagoneer For the MacIntosh Stereo?
As McIntosh is now doing some China Hi-Fi with their name on it.  Is this the trusted US made McIntosh or Chi-Fi?  
Can someone help me pick out my first speakers?
Good suggestions above but trust your own ears first and foremost.  Kind of like saying pick a liquid to drink.  Some will say water, soft drinks, milk, others beer, wine, scotch, etc..  I for example like many of the above but for some reason hav... 
Many higher end preamps are dated and ugly, why is this?
I don't care how preamps look, I don't care how speakers look.  I mix black and silver components.  I mix red back light with blue.  All I care about is, how does it sound.  I admit that glowing tubes in the evening can be somewhat intoxicating.   
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.

What amplifier should I get....
@jasonbourne52 If the first watt sucks, why bother?   
What amplifier should I get....
I believe that both have good speakers have good sensitivity, especially the GPA.  I run some A-7, 500 Voice of the Theaters with a Decware integrated SE34I.5 and this has been a magical match.  They are very helpful if you call, and can assist in...
