The Sunfire TGP IV and 300x2 combo really make the Amazings sing. My new setup really blows the doors off anything else I have ever owned. Starting with the clarity and sound quality, to the immense power. I have been cranking these all week! \:D/ \:D/
I am very excited to move the MXR130 to my garage setup.

Thanks again Jesse!

Not yet, Jesse has been walking me through alot of the setup and options. He also sent a PDF of the manual.

I think an OPPO BluRay may be next on my list? Maybe DAC, or something to play dowloaded music through?

My PS Audio DAC was one of the best audio purchases I've made so far, made the already awesome TGP-IV sound MUCH better in my opinion. I wish someone would of steered me in that direction a long time ago. :? I just picked up a refurbished WD live that streams media through an external hard drive for $64, also a very nice addition to the system. It plays downloads with the ease of a DVD player and is portable enough to play on any newer TV, no computer needed. 8)
