Who believes that Robert Plant
Layne Staley is my personal favorite (Alice in Chains/Mad Season). His range/power was absolutely amazing.I also think Freddy Mercury was phenomenal. 
Classe Amp for Magico S1 now or later?
Have you listened to the Classe to see if you like it? What did you audition the Magico's with?I personally would try your current system with the new speakers and take your time on the amplifier choice. Once you are really familiar with the speak... 
The BEST system you've ever built !!!!
I have to say that I'm VERY happy with my system as it stands now. Does that mean I may not change something and muck it up? Nope. But for now I'm really not longing for anything. It's extremely simple, but it does all I need it to do.Source: Esot...

Esoteric DV-50 is still an outstanding player and an absolute steal used. 
Parasound A21 vs Bryston 4bsst 2

Mark Levinson 326s, an upgrade over the JC-2?
I've owned both and yes the 326 is in a different league. I'd be happy to discuss specifics with you if you like. 
Looking for Help - LS27 or SLP-05
I've owned both and preferred the Cary by a significant amount. It has more of the tube attributes than the LS27 did in my system, and was just better essentially in every aspect. I would probably still own it if it had more remote functions (chan... 
Preamps better than Parasound JC-2 ?
I agree with Stevecham. The JC-2 is an amazing piece at the asking price. 
Krell 2250e or ML532H...which one to buy?
I'd go with the Levinson. 
Can I run 4 ohms into 8 ohm speakers?

Wilson Alexia vs Raidho D3
I've heard neither of these amps/preamps.
