Jadis DA60 with a pair of Sonus Cremona Auditors comes to mind when I think of an office system where budget isnt an issue.

Ive call PG and left a message with his sec but I think this whole NA distribution thing has him a little busy, Mechan...its open season should one pop up! Thanks guys, anyone know for a certainty about the biasing?

McIntosh 501 or 602 for Magnepan 20.1
MC2102 on a 20.1? I dont think that would be a good idea, my 3.6's clipped my 1201's! As for the 2275 I dont think it could properly drive a 1.6 or higher...maybe the MMG or 12's.

Got money in the bank. Please help
MMG's would work great in your 10 x 12 room, you will even have some $$$ left over for a decent sub and still fit your budget. Had them in my bedroom and they were fantastic. Go for the after market stands and raise them another 6 inches, will be ... 
Help me pick out amp & preamp for Tannoy D700's
Ive heard all the models you have mentioned, from your list the MC352 and toss up between C2200 and C100...tone controls and tubes for the C2200, versus SS and a better phono section in the C100. 
What speaker is best for Mcintosh 6900?
