    Icon32 What high-end components do you guys recommend?

    I own a 1971 chevelle and want to put in some components. Let me first tell you about the sub woofer setup I have I have (3) JL Audio 13.5 W7 powered by (3) Zapco 9.0 Amps and now I am looking for components. There are a few brands I am looking at which are Boston Acoustics Z6 series, CDT Audio (but kinda expensive) Arch Audio, Diamond Audio, Focal, Please let me know what you guys recommend?

    I just installed my dynaudio 240's. Initial impressions are very solid.

    PM or IM DjDillioDon for great prices on CDT, he's an authorized dealer, so you still get the 3 year warranty.

    More proof.

    I'm a big fan of Seas Lotus, and the Z6 set I used was quite nice. Kicker SS speakers are surprisingly good as well.
