    Went To the Toronto Audio show today.

    I wasn't planning on buying anything. Murphys law set in.
    I ended up completing my 2CH system.
    The system will be Boulder 866 ( already own) and Vimberg Amea speakers. They made me a deal I couldn't refuse. I'm happy with it. This should bring my 2CH to a close.
    I see my affliction, HT storm clouds building.

    I'm not familiar with those speakers. What did you like about them?

    I have heard them. I know they would make the speakers sound better but there is a point of diminishing returns

    I saw that Wynn had a blue pair at the show. Are those the ones you ended up getting? I haven't seen the Velvetec Blue finish in person, but they look very cool.

    I've been using the Bel Canto Black EX integrated amp with the Vimberg Amea.

    That looks like a nice choice. It's been awhile since I heard BEL canto and never heard the top line products. It does get good reviews.

    The upper end Bel Canto products step into a pretty elevated league. They don't get the attention they deserve.
