All but the Bluetooth adapter gotten used/demo from this and the other site. What a great way to shop! Everything came in great shape and works well. This is my second pair of MA speakers and I've been delighted both times. I know lots of folks are into vinyl and tubes, but as an elderly man I remember all too well the pops and crackles of vinyl and the frequently crashing tubes. I'm happy with this and only look forward to getting a solid streamer. To paraphrase the Talmud--Who has the best system? the person who is happy with what he has!

    • Monitor Audio PL100 II
    Stand mount, great sound. Work beautifully in this small, irregularly shaped room. Got them half-price/used from Spain, less that a year old. What a find.
    • Hegel Rost
    Integrated amp. Smooth sound. Plenty of power for my needs. Fine DAC.
    • PSB 450 Subwoofer
    Definitely makes the windows rattle and the floor shake on heavy duty classical.
    • T+A 1260 CD player
    Like everything else in this system, 1/2 price or less used. Works great, with some functions I can't even understand!
    • Mr. Speaker Ether headphones
    Incredible sound. Might well be the last headphones I ever buy.
    • Audioengine B1--Bluetooth adapter
    I'm sure not as good as a real streamer, but really not bad at all for getting Amazon HD and Idagio. I'll save up for the Cambridge streamer...

Far from Modest system IMO. Very well put together . I have a pair of the PL100ii's also and am very impressed with the overall sound . They stand up well to any bookshelf I listened to. and the Platinum line is certainly not modest.. 
Fabulous system here: - partnered with the 300's  Diretta伝送で、音がこんなによくなるとは! SPECから登場したUSB Bridge「RMP-UB1」は、ハイレゾファンに大きな恩恵をもたらす注目アイテムになるだろう - Stereo Sound ONLINE . I loved the sound of the Dynaudio Contour  line as well . I found with the MA Speakers the more power I feed them the better and they are never earsplitting or fatiguing.
