Best Test CD
I recommend using well recorded music that you are familiar with already. You should listen for details and dynamics that were not detected on your current system. If you listen to music, shouldn't you test with music? 
Anyone out there own an Alesis Masterlink CD-R?

Anyone out there own an Alesis Masterlink CD-R?
Yes, I have had an Alesis Masterlink for five months now, and its a great recording tool. Another poster above said he could only get about 30 mins. of recording on the hard drive? That is not the case, I can get almost four hours of 24/96 recordi...

Are you Guys Rich or What!?
Dont forget that there is a point of diminishing (spelling error?) return. I have about 15K in my system, and I know that anything I add at this point will not make a huge difference. This hobby is more like a sickness.

Looking for musical A/V receiver
Before I moved up to the "high end stuff" I had a Marantz SR-7000 and it was great! I belive you can find them now for 700.00 or so. Lately I've also been hearing great things about the Denon stuff.
