Which LS3/5a?
Great discussion. In the mid '80s I bought a pair of Rogers branded speakers that I thought after all this time were LS3/5as and loved them. I drove them with a Hafler DH-200 and a CJ PV-2. They played loud with great detail and warmth, plenty of ... 
Do You Tell Others How Much You Have Invested in Your System?
Well I never worry about security but I do occassionally put rough numbers to my system with others. In my mind to show the great value it is.   
Tube preamp options
Unbelievable no one has mentioned conrad-johnson. You. Cannot go wrong. Brilliant quality and the best tube sound; several price points.   
Sad songs- We love them- We need them
David Gray has loads - he's rather known - or them but certainly one of the saddest songs ever is "The One I Love."

Wendell Diller: "You don't wanna put a subwoofer with a Magneplanar; it doesn't work."
One's ears don't care where the sound cones from as long it works. Been in this hobby for 42yrs, used to sell high end stuff. I am very happy with my system, esp the value equation.

+1 Mate!   
Wendell Diller: "You don't wanna put a subwoofer with a Magneplanar; it doesn't work."
Nonsense. I love my 1.7is but the arrogance and self-delusion at the company annoys me no end. In my large very open room that had little bass and no "slam" or "punch." I bought a pair of 10" Emotiva BasX subs. WORLD.OF.DIFFERENCE! Now my system -...
