NICE system - now tell me how you think the T1 respond to the Benchmarks. I am confident you like the sound - but how would you describe it - have you plugged other amps/preamps/etc into the T1s? Sure looks GREAT on paper!! Congrats

The Benchmark dac2 is the best dac I've had (I also own the Benchmark dac1 for my kitchen system). It sounds clean, neutral and accurate and it's a perfect mate with the T1s in my opinion. I love the sound!

Thank you sir! I hope you discover new music as well. Actually Sirius XM is really helping. Both the Real Jazz channel and Sirius XMU for the indie rock have been enlightening.

I have had the Triton 1s for about a year now. I have an Integra DHC 80.3 pre/pro. I have tried a few different amps with varying results. The 1st was my trusty Outlaw 200 watt per 5 channel amp, she just didnt have enough to run the T1s and the T3s. Then I tried the Emotiva 600 watt mono amps. They made some humming noise but thats what I expected for $1600. They played very loud but I still wasn't happy. The coup de grace is my Rogue Audio Stereo 100. This baby is awesome, I am hearing things on recordings that I never noticed before. If you have a chance give one a try. Acoustic sounds dot com has them for $3k, $500 off of retail. Good luck!

Oh man, Heatmiser44,
That amp has me drooling, and along with the Triton Ones, one can just imagine HOW SWEET IT IS!!!!!!!
Those KT120s should have lots of power, and not be sloppy, syrupy sounding either, they should have good bass as well as mids. How is the treble? That is the only area where I would worry. What kind of music do you listen to, if I might ask?
Anyway, thanks to report and keep em coming.
And enjoy the tunes, you certainly should.
Happy Listening,
God Bless, Wayne
God bless the child that's got his own.

Wayne, the best part about the tritons is the bass section has its own power so the Rogue only has to power the mids and the tweeter. The highs are excellent, so crisp and clear, I swear, the harder you push them the better they sound. I use the Rogue in triode mode which pretty much cuts the power in half, but tightens everything up. As far as music, i listen to 80s rock, 90s-current alt rock, electronic like Skrillex and Deadmau5, and last but not least Pink Floyd, and lots of classic rock.
Thanks for the high praise, I love this system and I hope yours kicks ass too!
