    Thanks, Guys!
    Still burning in the DV2 and amplifiers.
    I've had the Evolution Acoustic speakers for about 5 years and love them.
    Only thing is I doubt I will ever be able to sell these 600lb monsters - just so heavy!!

    Thanks, Guys.
    The bottom units under the Rowland amps, are Rowland power supplies that convert AC/DC.

    This attributes to the amps dead quiet background!
    Have to say the quality of workmanship in these are better than anything I have seen - simply incredible!!


    The DV2 s great too - there is no fiddling around with options and filters, etc.
    Simply plug in your digital devices and go - really simple and user friendly.
    The digital volume control is also super transparent.

    Wow. Simply beautiful set up! Enjoy in good health. I find it wonderful, the Oppo, at less than the cost of a power cord, makes the cut. One of the best values that used to be made. I loved mine...
