Re: How to select ICE? - Did he run to the freezer with his microscope?
2. 5.1 systems can sound as good as 2 channel systems but to do that one would have to consider 5.1 budget that is 2.5x that of a similar 2 channel system.
Say consider a 5.1/7.2 system using the following.
Front channel (80 liters tower)
1 x T25CF002

1 x W16NX001

2 x W22EX001

Center and Rear channels (10 liters each)

Subwoofers (80 liters)
2 x L26ROY
THE ART OF SOUND PERFECTION BY SEAS - D1001-04 L26ROY
2 x SL26R

It is not diffcult to DIY amplifiers and speakers. And with a little help one can build some seriously good tapedecks, turnables (Garrad/Throens/Duals were easy to upgrade), and CD players (like say the CD63Ki). The first tape deck I modified was a Sony TCK 1. It had a huge box which allowed me to upgrade the entire power section and later upgrade Dolby chips etc... Then I was gifted a dead 680ZX so I tore that apart too. Eventually this became a madness of mine but that is another story.
3. Since I did not have access to a lot of testing and/or measuring equipment on hand I had to start relying on my ears. Brands were damned.
