Ahh Ok. In that case I'm not sure which DAC and preamp I'd choose, probably the Teac one because it looks nice. I've edited my post to include a Teac DAC/pre instead of the SB Touch.AlmaataKZ said:Ah, I have tried this combination and you get a bit of crackling noise as input sensitivity does not match well to sbt.
better with a preamp
Agree otherwise - a lot of the price difference is in the atc cabinet.

Now we are talking. It would have to be minus the desk, for obvious financial reasons...... But seriously if I had the room this would be the last system I would ever need. Rubs trousers in a Vic Reeves style movement.steve_1979 said:

Besides what would £250K buy you? A louder system maybe but can you get better quality than something like the £10K Genelecs?
Come see me when you have a £250k budget and I will help you spend it! It is not about loud and the quality is there but at the big money it is about getting the sound bang on for you with as little compromise as possible and with that budget it is easier.
Who am I to complain about a Linn DS + Class A amp + Kef Speakers + a big Sub!TheHomeCinemaCentre said:Well off the top of my head and from the products we supply ( with a nod to the house rules ) The KEF Muons, 2 x Paradigm SUB2, 6 x Plinius SA Reference amps, Plnius Hiato and a Linn Klimax DS would be a good start. I am sure some ridiculously priced cables would get you up to £250k. Oh and we better add in some Black Ravioli - I hear it is flavour of the month......
I am sure there is a better way to spend it but the system above would do quite a lot of things very well and look good as well.
Yes, the bass, midrange and dynamics of the Genelecs are all quite easily beatable by various speakers costing less than £10,000.steve_1979 said:
