    It was only due for release this month so I doubt many people have got their hands on one yet.

    Cheers for the reply Jase, I did not realise it had only just been released....
    How about the 1906?

    I'd be interested in this as well. I've just ordered the Cantons and I was going to go with a 1906.

    I'll second that, had my 2106 since Monday and it's superb.

    Anyone know the remote code for Sky Digital so I can just use the Denon one?

    I have the predecessor the 2105 powering Canton CD1 sub, CD50 centre and CD100 fronts - Eltax Stargate rears need to be replaced but I haven't had the drilling time to change the wall mounts.

    It sounds very good. I've had a cheap Sherwood amp and Mission 702e fronts + 700 rears and Eltax Symphony Centre - same speakers with a Yamaha DSP-A5 and the second amp with Eltax Stargates in the last 5 years or so.
    This is definitely the best with great integration from the sub and CD100 for music - movies are also excellent but I won't know how good until I get the rears up.

    All that said the total RRP for this lot is over £1100 for the speakers and £450 for the amp so it should knock the rest into a cocked hat.

    I'm happy with what I've got YMMV

    Sounds like exactly the same set-up as I'm going for apart from the CD10's for the rears and the new upgraded sub, looks like I'm making a good choice!

    Demo'd the 2106 at the weekend and I was blown away, the sound was awesome,
    altough not to impressed with the auto set-up. Anyone know where to get a cheap sound preassure meter?

    Fitted the remaining CD20 and CD10 rears at the weekend but too soon to judge them.

    Why weren't you impressed with the autoset up - it's a lot less hassle than trying to manually set up a sub?
