Default TAD CR-1's - Just Beautiful with Burmester 911mk3 mono amps ...

I thought my CR-1's were pretty special before I hooked up my Burmester amps. But now I am blown away how insane these "little" guys are performing. At times, I felt they may have been a little forward. But now I realize they are very revealing of everything upstream. I know system matching is important, but until you live it and hit a combination that just flat out exceeds anything you have heard before, it can be breathtaking. Well here I sit cranking the CR-1's with the 911mk3 monos and I am in awe. There are some room and system tweaks I can do, but right now I am - one happy banana.

Dan,

Thank you. I think my dedicated outlets brought the goods and really helped everything out.

Joe.......You know the old saying. Nothing is stronger than the weakest link. So true.

Joe,

I'm very happy for you too. Your joy is palpable.
So, what will you do with the Dart ?

Jerome,

I am seriously thinking about selling the Dartzeel (although it works beautifully with the CJ GAT) and possibly the CJ Premier 350. I don't see myself swapping gear too often and I hate to see everything just sit there.

I need a stand out, stellar source. Either a Burmester 111 or cd/sacd/dac. AMR, Playback Designs, MSB dac or M2Tech dac. I do not know yet.

Bart,

Thank you. I am starting to focus on a few core pieces and enjoying that gear more. Too many pieces gets a little overwhelming. If I had more room it would not be a problem.
