Thanks jafant,

I appreciate the comment.

However, I have updated my system but not the details here. Shame on me.

I had spent a lot of time trying to make my Thiel CS5i's sound good by searching for an appropriate amp, preamp, and DAC. After spending a lot of time and money, I still could not get the live sound or soundstage I was seeking.

So...the Thiel's have been sidelined in favor of Klipsch Forte iv's. They smoke the Thiel's for me in terms of dynamics and soundstage. I am a lot closer to a live sound than I was before. 

I am using the same transport, DAC and preamp but am enjoying a new amp, First Watt F7 ,with the Klipsch speakers. It's twenty watts, all in class A, and is a good match with the Forte's as it provides detail and more than enough power.

Hope the Thiel Thread is going strong!

Looks like a really nice well thought out system. I think the carpet over the monitor is an appropriate touch. I assume you throw that up there when listening to music only.
