Okay... been a while since I've stopped by when I was initially looking for pieces but after shopping for months I've already made a few purchases and looking for recommendations as to what the last piece should be...
Running a media computer system with a large system drive and lossless audio painstakingly ripped under EAC. Signal moves over coaxial to a MSB DAC Link III (Full Nelson) and eventually to a pair of Amphion Helium2's that I though sounded best in my space... I've roughly $400 left out of a $2000 budget (not particularly poor considering how that's 2 speakers + stands + DAC) -- but something obviously needs to go in the middle between the Helium2's and the DAC but what? Space is very small and I have neighbors in the apartments above, below, and beside mine so musical clarity is of the utmost importance, not strength -- what's the piece I'm missing?
