My new system is finally up and running. It comprises a Marantz CD6002, B&W 685's and Rotel RA-05 and it sounds heavenly. Thanks to all who helped in my decision especially the what hifi team for recommendations both on here and in the magazine. Brickbats to optimum who have so far sent two sets of rods for my new rack that are scratched and pitted and thwe same to soundstyle for not upping production before Christmas ensuring that the only shop in the country with stocks of Z2's is in London!!
