venkat - sentiment well taken. I just think we're offering advice that will get him good sound, not just good equipment. The relationship is not always linear.
Though the speakers you list are very good, when somebody takes the synchrony home (for example) and finds lack of refinement and excitement because the partnering equipment is not up to snuff, who will he blame - himself?

Please never feel offended if we dont agree on certain issues as that is never the intention. I have loved many of your posts and have found them very very informative.
