I think I finally have the home theater system to about where I want it. I have an Oppo BDP-93 for discs and streaming upon which I cannot heap enough praise. Next to my old 1989 vintage Sony CDP 605ESD it is my favorite disc player. We use a somewhat (for an AV receiver anyway) older Marantz SR6003 as the brains, and a very old (1982?) Hafler DH 200 (again updated and modified by Wayne at In House Stereo Repair) running the mains. This is an amplifier to keep forever. The speakers are all new Dynaudio DM series- DM2/7 fronts and DM center. They sound great, even though they are not broken in. The center is 1/3 the size of my Dynaudio Audience C122 center (which is in storage now) but has a wonderfully natural timbre on voices, which is obviously important. It's also on a neat stand it comes with to give it clearance over the top of the cabinet, which is perfect given the cabinet's depth. No sub (yet, I think- the DM 2/6s have great bass) and no serious thoughts for surrounds, but just fine as is for most stuff. I will admit that the Emerson Lake and Palmer Brain Salad Surgery DVD-A could use surrounds though, as could some of my Porcupine Tree stuff, but the ELP- there's a TON of weirdness in that mix.
