    Hi all,

    via my father-in-law I have just entered the world of higher end hifi.

    The electronics are all Meridian:

    508 24 bit CD Player
    501 Control Unit
    555 power amp driving tweeters
    555 power amp driving woofers

    Speakers are Opera Divina on some very heavy target stands.

    Chord interconnects and speaker cables (bi-wired).

    He'd spent gazillions on all this and passed it on to me for pennies.

    Currently listening to 'War of the Worlds' and loving it.

    Very, very nice. So, how does it sound?

    I reckon a little more distance from the side wall and speaker might help.

    Loving those speakers. Not really into the Cherry colour but it is definitely complimenting the design of them.
