I am starting fresh! New room, new system. I believe there are many pitfalls that can be successfully avoided without spending a dime. It requires reading and listening. I have learned much reading threads, now I want to put forth my planned system so that it can be thoroughly vetted by those who know more than I do. I am especially interested in system synergy (impedance and sensitivity matching, etc), appropriateness given my preferences, and possible cheaper alternatives. I appreciate the help in advance!
