    Greetings from Gator Land

    Gainesville, that is...Lifelong audio nerd who clung to his Mac 1700 receiver and Large Advents until I was living in Miami and introduced to that weird cult of high end. When I heard a pair of Acoustat Xs, my world was rocked and for $2k I had me a pair, with a VanAlstine preamp, Ariston RDlls and Mayware Formula 4. Since then lots of gear has come and gone, with the Gemini duality veering between giant electrostats and minimalist powered speakers. I am currently enjoying a combo a/v system as I have a lot of multichannel SACDs and concert blu rays. In a nod to my minimalism and aesthetic sense, I am using Dynaudio XD60s which are quad amped floor standing speakers that continue to flabbergast me with their full range response (below 20hz), lack of boxiness, and timbrel accuracy. I think those crafty Danes know a thing or two. Oh, and they are beautiful. Now if I could just figure out how to best get an SPDIF signal for all surround channels......

    Well come on up and we will go to Payne's Prairie and you will see plenty! BTW, how do you like your Lumin U1? I'm looking for a streamer.

    Mark,

    Welcome to the forum!
    I lived in Gainesville as a student while doing my Engineering at UF!

    I've always had a soft spot for Dynaudio - they make some great speakers.
