Very Nice! I'm using B&W DM602 S3's for my rears with two ASW650 subs. I'm using a Yamaha RX-Z1 as well. How's that AVR?

Actually, its not an AVR, its a stereo receiver, DRA-697CI, and it is awesome, drives the 603s very well and to extremely loud levels.

Love those speakers. Can't wait to ditch my Mirage speakers for some B&Ws. I also use a Denon receiver. What is your receiver rated at @ 8ohms??? Not trying to be nosey but I would like to know how my receiver will drive a pair of those main speakers.

100x2, its not a super powerful receiver or anything, its just rated to deliver that power from 20hz to 20khz at like 0.08% THD.

I enjoy mine a lot as well. I also assume that EE stands for Electrical Engineer, which is kind of funny since I am studying to be an Electrical Engineer.

Those speakers replaced a set of Bose 301s, I got the Bose speakers back in 6th grade and have now completed 2 years of college.

If you really want to see a BIG upgrade on those speakers, find a store around you that sells Arcam and pick up a CD Player and some good analog interconnects.

You won't regret it...

Well, technically the DVD player I am using has 24 bit 96khz DACs in it and when measured puts out theoretically perfect CD audio when measured. It was reviewed way back in the day in Stereo Review and it measured as well as any CD player they had ever tested they said. I am using analog interconnects anyway as this receiver does not have digital inputs.

Just some words of advice...

Select equipment with your ears, because you can not hear specs... ;)

Nice start, I think you're about ready for new furniture to match the B&Ws ;)

Oh, I know, lol, but I think it still sounds amazing and I just don't have the money nor the need for a better CD player.

I didn't mean it that to be offensive or anything. But, a lot of 'educated' technical people tend to live the the numbers world rather than the real world...

I know you weren't, I wasn't trying to be defensive either, just saying that I really don't have the money for it, I already spent more on my car system and house system than any college kid should ever spend.

I am looking at buying a Classe CP-500... Now that is more money than a college kid should spend... But, it is my anti-crack... LAWL...

Here is an example...

When I started out in EE I was friends with a group of people.
Me, Noah, a friend we call Ugs, and a kid named Mike, another kid named Mike, Brian, and Jesse.

Out of that group Jesse is still in engineering, at a school in AZ.

w00t, UC engineering. I know our Class size went from 81 freshman to 58 sophomores to 22 Juniors... What a program huh? I know people always say that they 'weed' people who aren't cut out for EE the first couple of years. Well, that is bull ****. The problem is having professors like P. A. Ramma who teach you about his 'F16 Fighter simulator' he wrote instead of teaching you RLC circuits and stuff like that. When the class average is a 57 and you don't curve... There is something wrong...
