I just started to upgrade my audio system. A much needed move as I was using an old Sherwood Amp from the 70s and some large although rather poor sounding Jenson speakers (they were only $300 for the pair, lots if not too much muddy bass).
For my upgrade, I went with a set of Klipsche FR-83 for my fronts, and rounded out the 5.1 system with Cerwin Vegas (would have liked to used Klipshe, but ran out of funds). The rest is all rather inexpenive stuff: An entry level Pioneer Receiver (that works very well for a $300 receiver). A separate Peavey 450wpc amp to power my fronts (again, I wish I had the money for an integated hi fi amp - this will have to do for now). Also using a cheap Panasonic Univerisal disc player. That will be upgraded next, funds allowing. The system sounds quite good because by luck I have nice room acoustics, and the new speakers have made a world of difference. Upgrade still in progress though. Just wanted to see what types of gear you OT fans were using.

Sounds impressive. The disc player has always been a source of confusion for me - and actually how good they can be for the money. How is yours connected. Through analog I am assuming. Tell me a little more about the A3. Once thing that I have heard is that no matter how hi-fi or expensive a player is - the only way you will hear a difference is if they are connected analog.
