I'm enclosing here, a breakdown of my system, component by
component for those audiophiles who like to know exactly what each piece is.
These units were selected primarily for their sound quality, company
reputation, and reliability, and so far have worked very well. The latest
addition was the DVD package, digital processor, and DVD player. Believe me,
Dolby Digital System is definitely everything they say it is! So here goes!
First, I'll start with the Electronics:Sony MDS-JE510 Mini Disc Player
Harmon/Kardon 8550 Compact Disc Changer

Adcom ACE 515 Power Conditioners (2)
Harmon/Kardon FM 8550 5 Disk changer

Now for the Brute Strength of the System, The Power Amps:
Parasound HCA-2200II Ultra High Current Power amplifier to the woofers of
the Infinity Kappa 9's.
Interconnects and Speaker Cables:
The Video is handled by a Sony VPL-VW10HT LCD projector. It's ceiling mounted about 14 feet from the screen. The projector is rated for XGA resolution and is capable of reproducing all HDTV formats. It offers a very big, very bright picture. The projector operates very quietly and offers a razor sharp bright image. I am also using a Da-Lite Cosmopolitan Electrol 120" Electric Screen.

The complete system was assembled over a period of about 8 years, and I guess with my newest additions added, it will be a little while before I upgrade it again. I think I just about have it where I want it! I'm told by friends and visitors that have seen it, This is Awesome! Seems they love the way it effortlessly reproduces all Audio and A/V programs at a concert or Cinema Theater levels. I just think it sounds good!
If you have a A/V system like mine or somewhat like it,
and have it on the web, I'd really like to see it. I'd also like to hear
your comments on my system. Please E-mail me with your address. I'll check it out as soon as I can!
