I've had the Encore since -98 and this fall I upgraded it to the Ovation-8. It took very long time to break it in but now it sounds wonderful. My system includes, as of now: Sony DVP-NS900V, Pioneer CLD-D925, Sony CDP-CX450, Monarchy Audio DIP 24/96, Primare A30.5, Mirage OM-8/OM-C3/MBS-2 and the Philips ProntoPro remote. A rather nice system that really works as a complete one. Anyone with a TM-8 and the Pronto might be interested in CCF's for the Pronto and the ProntoPro. I have it so just send me an email and you'll recieve it. I would very much like to hear from other TM-8 owners and what you think.
