Amplifiers for B&W 803D/802D
I upgraded from the 803 to 802 Nautilus (not the Diamond Series). At that point, the 802 had a much bigger sound stage. I now drive them with the 350 watt MF TriVista Integrated, which is a great match -- head turning. If you are going to buy the ... 
I would not buy a receiver that does not have HDMI 1.3. The 1.3 has both video and audio advantages. 
Cary 303/300 vs. 306/200?

Musical Fidelity kw DM 25 Transport and DAC

Musical Fidelity kw DM 25 Transport and DAC
For the comment that MF products are poorly engineered, could you give a specific example or two of this poor engineering? zmy experience is quite the opposite. 
CDP Upgrade: Around 2k Used
Look at the Cary 303-300 and listen to the tube output. It is special. 
Pioneer vs. Panasonic plasma
Read the discussions of vertical banding in Sharp LCDs, particularly the 52" and the 56".
